    Representing the Helghast

    After playing several games with borrowed armies (Guard) I have decided to start my own, Helghast themed guard army (cadians with Pig Iron heads and some small greenstuffing). Looking at the 'typical 1000pts list , they dont seem to represent the Helghast too well -the army theme is a mobile, lethal 'blitzkrieg' (at 1000pts to start with) , mech being a must. Any ideas on how to represent this?
    Incidentally, I want to go for pure Guard, so no allied DH, WH or SM.

    This is a fluffier list for an army of elite, heavily armed grenadiers. While some points are spent on questionable items and the list is not as lethal as it could be, 6 tanks at 1000 points is hard to beat and your opponent should have more fun fighting this list then melta spam. The list is a little short on anti-tank and body count.

    Main problem with this list is if an opponent pops those 2 chimeras your going to have a really hard time getting any objectives.

    I'd take some sentinels and give them flamethrowers using something like the AT-43 Spetsnatz Kolossus to represent the big armoured infantry guys with the big flamers.

    They'd look rad.
