Title: What regiment do YOU play?
Post by: catapillow on October 07, 2014, 03:01:01 PM
Hi guys,
I'm not sure how many guard players there is on this forum, but I was wondering what regiments (Cadians, Steel Legion ect.)  you guys use.

p.s I use Cadians and I'm also thinking about getting some steel legion.

I have to Imperial Guard armies:
1- Jungle fighting regiment of my invention based on Catachan minis, and miniatures from other brands to add some female touch.

2- Renegade guard where I am using miniatures form different regiments, some FW miniatures and miniatures form Warzone and Gorka Morka. This regiment is more oriented to infantry with heavy tank support.

Here some Pictures

JUNGLE FIGHTING REGIMENT

Thank you. I want to have to type of regiments one focus on heavy tanks and trench fighting, and the Imperial one focus on light infantry and light vehicles inspired by Tanith regiment.

I use mainly Cadian models, but recently I've been painting everyone with dark brown/black skin and glowing red eyes. Then I ally them with Salamanders and they're a Nocturnian regiment!

I am VERY slowly collecting Praetorians simply because I wanted something very different... I've a long way to go but they are really unique which means expensive. :(

I play Cadia and btw the reason their are no female guards men is that most regiments don't mix genders in squads becouse it is a distraction for both so most women are put in women only squads another reason is that less than 10% of the imperial guard is female.

Athonian Tunnel Rats, converted from Cadian, Catachan, and Empire State Troops + Free Company parts. Lots of gas masks and clubs/axes/cutlasses.

I have four IG Armies
Catachans
Cadians
Tallarn
Abhumans

In my fluff they are all separate companies of the same regiment which have been 'trained' to operate in different environments.

Catachans - jungle
Cadians - non-urban
Tallarn - desert
Abhumans - urban

I will post up pics of all eventually but I will post up one of the Abhumans first (because a mate of mine painted them up for me, so they look the best)

Cheers
Nick

While I am still in my building/painting phase of them.  I am making a Cadian army as an Allied Detachment to my Dark Angels which is the only other faction I've ever played.  I have a female commissar figure to lead them and she will be models after Lt. Mira form the xbox game.  But mine has been seriously promoted to where she is now my Lord Commissar.

I also will be tweaking my unit flag to represent my heritage which is Irish.  So it will be strongly green, white and orange.  Somewhere on them I plan to have those colors on each figure to represent the Irish descendants who migrated to Cadia.

I love the fiction of the game.
