"A mixed regiment of criminals, backwater yokels and light armour? Emporer protect us!"
Part motivation, part ego booster and part consoltation, I've started this thread in the hopes of getting my small imperial guard army, which I began a year ago, on the gaming table!
Currently the regiment stands at 20 guardsmen, two Chimera transports, two scout Sentinals and three CO's with another 10 guardsmen on there way. In the coming months I'm hoping to double this number, with a lot of emphasis on light armour such as Sentinals, Chimeras and eventualy some Hydra AA batteries.
So, a little background on the regiment:
- Combination of three regiments during the third war for Armageddon
- Savlar Chem Dogs 32nd (vets + penal), Ruis 14th (guardsmen + HQ) and Armageddon 612th (armour)
- Light armour carry the heavier weapons, infantry stay light
- Few (if any) elite units
It's certainly a fluffy army, but we'll see how that goes on with time.
Anyway, onto the mini's!
I've only recently begun work on the Savlar units in the army, mostly due to them being the most time consuming in conversion and modling.
Here are the two I've recently completed:
While I'm happy with how the masks have come out, they seem a tad oversized for mere breathing masks. (Specificly concerning the guardsman without the helmet)
I'm also thinking of modling some carry bags for their fellow guardsmen, such as satchels or backpacks, so they can keep all there stolen loot and such.
But with cadian mini's being what they are, I may need to get creative with some...
Considering they're a mixed regiment, should I try switching the colours from my regular units? Or just paint their armour black and be done with it?
Here is a pic of a regular guardsmen for reference.
