RM's WH40K Paintlog

Postby Robot Monkey » Mon Dec 26, 2011 8:32 pm

That's right, today I ran down to my local Hobby store and bought me a box of WH40K Imperial Guard Cadian Shock troops, some paints, glue, and the IG codex. Total price: $83. ( :shock: )
I got the miniatures assembled today, gonna paint them tomorrow.

Vox Caster trooper.

Image
Flamethrower troop. (I refuse to say "flamer"...)

Image

Image

So, I'll probably have an update tomorrow.

Come on man, Cadians? There are so many cooler IG armies! Vostroyans, Valhallans, Death Corps of Kreig, the Soviet ones, the Arabic ones, the airdrop ones, or in the very least Catachans!

He went to his neighbourhood gaming shop, so it's likely their only Imperial Guards were Cadians.

All this is true, yet, you gotta admit, in such a rich and diverse universe like 40K's, an army like this lacks some originality. Besides, everytime I played against or saw a game with the IG, their infantry usually end up butchered as cannon fodder for the tanks. It's a tactic like any another sure, just not my tactic.

As Silver said, all the IG they had at my neighborhood hobby store was the Cadians, the only Catachans they had was the battleforce, which was $116. Also, I'm going to do a custom paint scheme so they aren't boring run-of-the-mill Cadians.

EDIT: Also, suggestions for Regiment names would be appreciated.

Paint's drying right now, pics in an hour or two. Also, I'm a little high from the brush cleaner fumes. :?
When I finished painting these guys, they reminded me a bite of WW2 german soldiers, with a bit of the Afrika Korps thrown in.

Ah, so my idea for a Penal Legion that uses it's prisoners as bait to lure the enemy into artillery strikes is common practice then?
