I was reading the old Codex: Armageddon a while back and came across the Penal World of Arphista. So naturally, being the Imperial Guard freak that I am, I set about making a Penal Legion.
Now all the Penal Legions I have seen throughout the years either felt too 'clean' or 'well-maintained' to me. Considering the harshness of the Imperium, I decided that they should be a rag-tag lot with battered weapons and no equipment except their prison fatigues. Everything else should either be scrounged or looted from the field, or perhaps personal equipment hidden from the guards.
I also wanted to make every single trooper unique. I want someone to pick up a random Guardsman from my army and be able to think up an individual story as to why this poor soul ended up in this sorry hoard of scum.
So below is the first part of the 26th Arphista Penal Legion. The first two squads and the first 4 Ogryns.
And now for an update. Here is a quick pic of one of my platoon commanders and a pair of command squad bodyguards. They are not part of the same squad but thought I'd post them together anyway. What do you think?
More to come soon!
Let's hear some comments.
this army is gonna be awesome
Music must give birth to orgasm and revolution

I AM BOOMER!
Your IG always impress, Boba. These are no exception.
I'm just thinking what a pain it will be to keep 'em all unique if you are planning to have a few dozen of 'em!
Bobba my friend, your skills never cease to amaze me. These look great, I love the individuality of each miniature - its as you say, they're condemed men. Speaking of which I like the orygns, they are really well done my friend.
There will also be some conscripts represented by lowly civilian penal troops made from Necromunda and Empire Flagellant minis.
I especially like the prison ink.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
