I was just wondering whether the icon/symbol for the Imperial Guard is the twin headed eagle or the skull with wings extending from it.
Also, just according to some background fluff, would a Cadian 8th Army come from or fight in a sorta "urbanish" area because I"ve textured my bases with like gravel which looks a bit like rubble and was wondering whether it fits in or not (I don't plan on changing it, I just want to know lol)
Anyway thanks for the help,
The double headed eagle is called the 'aquila'. It is mostly used for any sign of the Imperium so can be IG. But most regiments have their own sign which they use.:yes:
Those Cadians can come from whereever you want mate, thats the beauty of IG:yes: ......
By day he fought with sword and shield.....
By night he fought with pen and parchment.....
He was....The Warrior Poet.......
Fear the ANZAC Clan!!!!!
ORDER OF THE SHADOWY FLAME!!!
Do you have uber micro...????
lol cool, thanks for the info. Yeah I love the "aquila" symbol, looks pretty cool.
Aquila is Latin for eagle. Some of the Roman heritage of the Imperium that pokes through.
I don't think there's any universal insignia for the Imperial Guard, I think the insignia differs from world to world or even regiment to regiment.
For Cadians however, the little Cadian Gate symbol (they're on your transfers sheet) might be what you're looking for.
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
Don't worry about the gravel, dude, after all, there is a new Cityfight book coming out (relatively) soon.
"Through most of the war we fought as nobles might. Never betraying, never decietful. But there came a point where tripping the soldier next to you might mean another day of life..."
All regiments have to be prepared to fight in any terrain, so the 8th has probably seen it's share of city fighting. In the real world 'urban' camouflage is pretty rare, I've never seen a genuine example. Most units simply use regular woodland/desert/etc camouflage.
i just paint my guard in jungle camo and say that they keep that camo, even in cities, in honor of their homeworld
