Demon Project Complete!

"For even the mutant, in its most disgusting form, can serve the Imperium. He that is mutated will give his life for the empire, charging forth to do battle for our most glorious Emperor, against the heretic, and the alien, and should he find himself facing the horror of his own kind, the mutant shalt not falter, for that is not His Will."           Revered Cardinal Vallus II (AKA Don) at a muster containing over 30% mutated human soldiers before sending them to their deaths against a much larger force of Orks.

I got an email today with a cool picture of my count as Demons for Imperial Guard all together look rather stunning. 

Before I get onto some fluff etc, here are some more pictures:

Thank You Readers Again!

I started this blog technically 12 months ago (although post number one is at the very end of January) and so far things have been a lot of fun. So I decided to make a post featuring the milestones of my blog and thanking those who read it.

Perhaps the Greatest Guard Project Ever Attempted

So after yesterdays small nostalgia post I had an idea... I wanted to have a model of each soldier depicted in the first Imperial Guard Codex. 

Listed in that book are 51 Guardsmen not including Cavalry and Tank Commanders (unsure if those will be done). So this is the introduction post to this project, as each step is complete I will post it here for C&C and hopefully this project can be as good as I imagine. 

So lets go on to the details of this project...

Just my favorite model...

Another Imperial Guard Inspiration Post - Regiments

I finally found a really good scan on these 2 amazing pages from an old Imperial Guard codex. These are but a few of the many Regiments fighting under the imperial banners! So much inspiration from History, mythology and sci fi tropes this page tries to make it very clear that there is a regiment for any theme out there!

Guard vs Eldar - A Costly Battle!

Had my first 40k game in a while and it was kinda fun. Somewhat frustrating rules for buildings and hard to get used to I go you go turns again. But as usual the game looked lovely. 

Anyway I was up against some eldar at 1K points.

Prussian + British Squats

Alright, the Squat forces have grown once more! Many have already seen my Praetorian Squats but just the other day the next batch of Squats came in the mail. The Prussian Squats.

These models are so much cooler than the first kickstarter. Im planning on painting them black and gold but I will see how it goes as I paint em. Anyway here are some out of the box pics:

Choices, Choices. Alternate Chimera

With my latest small 40k force here with me know I need to finish it off. For the first time ever I am doing a mechanized themed Guard army.

For 1K points I can have 55 soldiers (already complete), 7 Chimeras and one Scout Sentinel.

Needing 7 Chimeras is pretty pricey when buying from GW here, so after looking at overseas sellers and weighing up my options I decided to look for alternatives. I found a few. I wont be mentioning historical kits for this even though there are plenty of great ones out there.

Fist up this is the cheapest option I found. I mean crazy cheap!

Magos Dominus - With a Twist

I got an email today with an update on my counts as Demons. I am thoroughly impressed!

So im thinking that these can be cybernetic vegetables sitting in some nasty ship, then when in dire situations a psyker can pit itself at risk to teleport them to the field. They arrive covered in goo and ready fight. 

I personally prefer this to using Demons in an Imperial Force, plus I have the added benefit of using them in roleplays, other guard attachments and so on. 

So if anyone wants to flesh out some cool fluff for these guys feel free to! 

Let me know what you think of the models so far! 

Thanks to Oliver for your great painting as usual!

Sneak Peak - Imperial Guard Demons Counts As

I got some WIP pics from my favorite painter today and thought I would share whats going on with my latest 40k project. I dont play 40k much any more but doesn't mean the universe doesn't have some cool options for modeling etc to use!

So here is my planned units for demonology when my Guard decide to go bad!

The Flame throwers are flamey demons, the troopers are whatever demons I please and the big guy is a greater demon. The Greater Demon is from Forge World while the other models are from Anvil Industries.

Anyway let me know what you think!
