The detail on these is amazing, the thought behind them is even greater! For example the guys with drawn swords come with empty sheaths, the dismounted Dragoons helmets dont have waving hair like their mounted comrades and they come with many parts and corpses to use.
Some minor conversion work was all that was needed to add some 40k special weapons to this unit, as you see the Grenade launcher, and demo charge in the picture above. So if you are thinking about a themed IG army dont worry, Its actually really easy to do and i'll let you know how if you are interested.
Perry miniatures does some great sculpts, darn all these model companies making heaps of perfect Guard alternatives, they make me wanna buy them all! He does heaps of Nepolionic War era soldiers and some American Civil war and more (a lot more). Id love to see an army of these guys with tanks backing them up, a cool mix of archaic and modern styles which to me screams Imperium.
I paid 20 Pounds for these guys which I thought was decent given the amount of options and models.
One problem I had with these guys is the lack of arm variation, I had to do a lot of creative things to try break them up a bit (not as bad as Cadians though) but once i put them all together it actually wasnt noticeable so all in all I highly suggest looking at Perry Miniatures for a themed regiment which I would love to see.
Next up I dip into the world of fantasy and save ALOT! of money making my Empire army, stay tuned to see how.
