I've been thinking of making a city-fight regiment of my own, it's supposed to be an elite regiment, with lot's of elitish doctrines and stuff (hardened fighters, sharpshooters, die-hards, light infantry and veterans)
I've been doing some research and found some converted models that look lite a mix of catachan and cadian bits, with barrets modelled to the heads (catachan ones). I thought that it looked extremely awesome and perfectly fitting my regiments looks.
So...for my models I figured I would take the catachan legs and head and the cadians torso and arms/lasguns. Then I would model the barrets to the catachan heads... I whink that this would make them look like they had some more manouvrability than the cadian figurines.
For the rest of the army I will use some FW tank-bits (the mars pattern hull, ryza pattern turret and the "new" hellhound). I will also use the cadian hardened veterans with shotguns bits for my two veteran squads.
Now, my questions: does the catachan heads look to big on cadian models, is there any good way to model 'hardened fighters' to sentinels (not the chainsaw-blade), the colous scheme is going to be black mixed with catachan green with shadowgrey fields, would this look good?
Any other suggestions (not rules, I'm pretty sure what I want) ???
catachan heads look great on a cadian body. i put one on one of my cadians and it turned out well. i am tempted to start a new imperial guard army and thought about doing barrets on them but wasnt sure on how to make them out of green stuff. can wait to see yours:w00t:
Yeah, Wolfie has it down. The heads will be fine. make the sissy guard look a little tougher with the facial features the Catachan heads have. As for a "Hardened fighter" sentinel, well, theres always the battle damage look - where you use a dremel or other sharp tool to make scratches and holes and things. Also, decal/paint wise, a kill counter (you know, the slashes or skulls on the sides of cocpits) could illustrate the battles seen. Combat awards and citations (medals and honors) and trophy heads or artifacts. And if you're looking to beef the sentinel up, why not add armor to the leg area (try using the short track guard pieces). This could be your pilot's way of taking advantage of his battle experience by upgrading his unit. Good luck - can't wait to see pics!

There was a question about IG painting schemes some days ago. I posted some kind of guideline how to paint an army fitting to your imagination of their homeworld. Maybe you can use it. :yes:
Here it is!

Thanks for the advice, I have to get some more minis before I start converting (I don't have any cadian ones yet). But I hope that I will have some samples ready in the first of next month...
Edit - I got some cadian sprues of my younger brother (was home this weekend) so now I will try to assemble some warrior. Hopefully there will be some pictures up in a couple of weeks or so....
