I was thinking of starting a Mars army, and I have like 80 cadian model, blah blah, some tanks and stuff, Can you use cadians as mars pattern imperial guardsman? what colores are they?
thanks in advance.
you can use cadians for *any* imperial guard in the universe.Originally posted by Imperial_Might@Oct 15 2004, 19:14

colors? same as the tech priests i'd assume.
i think black gobbo game some examples for a Machine Cult army (doctrines/models). basically you'd use Enginseers, Carapace, Bionics, etc...
i'd be super expensive (point wise)
but that doesn't mean you gotta do that.
To be really fluffy you should use at least bionics and enginseers for obvious reasons. I, however, think that the best way to show off a mechanicus army is in the conversions. I'm not saying that you have to convert ALL of the guardsmen, :) but the sergeants and officers would look really good with extensive bionics, maybe mechanicus style hoods and rebreathers etc. You could also do things like using servitors instead of heavy weapon crews and such.
The colours of the mechanicus I hear is red and grey, and there's apparently a reason for this though I don't know what it is.
The Black Goblin has some Adeptus Mechanicus banners that you could use, either as is or for inspiration.
There's a mailing list for the Mechanicus here.
Agis Neugebauer has some nice servitor conversions.
also FW has a special Mars pattern hull for the Leman russ, there are a few coloured drawing in IA volume 1 about the Skitari armoured forces.
thanks alote, but where can i find this black gobbo, and what issue is it? and im getting a titan, so my army would look alote like mars army.
OMG...mechanized, carapace, sharspshooters, and cyber enhancement?
Its never a good thing when Space Marines outnumber you 2-1...

im not taking thoues doctrines, i just want the army.
Also, I believe if you check the US Imperial Guard website (and only the US site), in the painting section there is a long list of camo patterns for tanks, amongst them are I believe two different Mars camo patterns.
With Mars being red and all I would think that different shades of red and maybe black would be the best colors that you could choose for this type of army.
