I have a friend whose birthday it was this weekend. However, I still have a little while before I see him again and want to do something special for him as a birthday present. Namely I want to get him something for his IG army, hopefully for <£20, and paint it up for him as he is notoriously bad at finding time to paint.
His army is all cadian and has a green cloth/brown armour colourscheme. I don't really know what to get him as he wants pretty much anything from the book, which doesn't really narrow things down. Any suggestions?
Can't go wrong with another squad of guardsmen.
Space Marines: W15/L7/D3
Imperial Guard: W6/L4/D0
Yeah, that's true apart from 2 things: 1- I'm already painting about a billion guardsmen for my ToP army so don't want to do anymore, 2- I was wanting to do something a little more special than just a squad. Nice idea though, thanks for trying.
Get him a commissar! No-one can ever have too many commissar minis to choose to add to their army list, his paint scheme is pretty straight forward (you don't have to worry about getting his army colours perfect, just paint the dude mostly black and red anyway). Moreover, he can use it as an HQ choice, or as a front line 'postal' pistol holder.
If you wanted, you could also always convert the dude up a little, maybe give him a plasma pistol instead of a bolt pistol, or a powerfist (just remember to file off those rank markings on the fist, if they exist) for a little extra individuality (in case he already has basic commissars), if you start with the commissar lord as the base mini. Or just grab one of the others!

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
Hmmm... could do. Good idea that one.
Does he have the Advisor models?
Those would be cool!
Convert him up a Marbo model. It's cheap characterful and while only a Guardsman he has the cool factor. The Model is alright.....Just change that aweful head!!
Either that or some other Special Character or Inquisitor or something.
get him the new straken or harker models? perfect for a gift! can you get them for me too?
Buy him an ogryn or something. Those are always useful.
(That's blatant and unsubtle self propeganda of my ebay sales)
And a squad of sanctioned psykers converted from the empire flagellants boxed set. all you need is laspistols and the tank kit aquillas / skulls with wings (glue together, back to back and fit on top of the staffs on the flagellants)
