So, I have a subsetting I've been working on. Set in the Acadian subsector of my own devising. I'm pulling assorted motifs from places I've lived. Namely Acadia and Acadiana. A brief overview for those who've missed my other trailing thoughts on the matter.

It's a subsector that was brought into compliance during the GC then subsequently forgotten during the HH. Paperwork turned up in the 41st M and now a crusade has been launched to reclaim it and collect tithes past due (10k years of past due tithes! HERESY!) The crusade includes black templars, imperial fists, crimson fists, and blood angels. There happen to be dark angel interlopers in the subsector looking for "something" and the subsector has rampant upheaval from chaos and genestealer cults. The word bearers and iron warriors are enroute to claim resources liberated by their cults, and a tyranid splinter fleet comes to fulfill the hopes and dreams of their cults...

Caught in the middle are the PDF regiments of the subsector who are neither loyal to the emperor nor at all thrilled with the civil unrest and budding seperatist movements.

Thematically these PDF regiments will strive to stamp out either cult, and vainly resist the chaos legions and the Chittering swarm. They will ally with the imperials against these groups as redily as they will resist the hostile imperial takeover.


So I need to build up my IG. I have a lot of stuff lying around and I have a few things to add to it. So I'll collect my thoughts and progress here.

Thank you, and any input is welcome.


To be continued...

Let us chalk it up to great minds think alike.



My ig situation is less than ideal. Little armour (one old LR battle tank from prior to the kit having options, le sigh)

And a smathe ring of infantry. Mostly Cadians, just over enough to field a legit list of CCS + 2 min sized platoons. A hand full of odd balls, aka 3 steel legion troopers, a handful of orlocks and a few juvie eschers. 20 catachans I want rid of too... Oh and 10 kasrkin. But only a GL and Flamer in their kit.

I will get my butt in gear and post th eir status pictures this week perhaps. It's an old color scheme that I definitly will be replacing.

No worries mate. 
Just a heads up, IG is addictive and an IG army is never done. 
There are always more tanks and guys to purchase and paint.

Even though in game turns it's often the CCS doing all the orders that matter, I find the PCSs usually spend their time issuing FRFSRF because it's better than no order :P Still, it's fun to throw all those dice plus extra effectiveness is always welcome :)

 

Your idea is a good one, when do we get to see these pictures? ;)

It's going to be a little bit. All this posting is keeping idle hands busy while we have nothing to do at work...

But at home I'm very busy as always and the little hobby time I have goes to finishing my IF expansion Vow.

As soon as I've put a serious dent into that tho, for sure.

Any valid unit from a Guard codex - so could just be a Commissar or Priest for example for a quicker first vow as you prepare for war :)

Yeah... might just skip the chimera... haven't built one yet... at least a squad will be a troop choice as is optimal.

Having spent the majority of my recent hobby time renovating WFB armies, I'm finally mostly caught up and ready to switch gears... while I have quite a back log for other 40k armies, the fact that I wasn't prepared for the board IG campaign realy got under my skin so I will spend some time tackling my guard...

I dug around and I have a lot to build!

1 chimera
3 x 10 cadians squads
1 x 5 cadian comand squad

I'll be shuffling bits to get an excess of specialists I can splice into the rest of my army... plus there are so many cool bits in the comand squad but only 5 bodies... that simply won't do...


Btw. Noticed some thing funny... or I'm to tired to tell... but there is a left and a right arm banner... you can totally Make a guy with 2 banners...

Also... I have and prefer the metal plasma and melta cadians with fuel tubes going to back packs... need to figure out how to make the comand squad melta and plasma look like that.. luckily I have a lot of guitar strings.

LAMENTATIONS!

so in eons passed... I bought the cadian battle force... back when the plastic leman russ only built the standard battle tank, and the comand squad didn't exist...

The battle force had 20 cadian infantry, 3 heavy weapin teams, and an LRBT...

Well digging thru my bits I discover I only have 2 of the 3 tripods needed to build the autocannon or lascannons... I had originally built the missile launchers... and I'm not sure I have all the bits for the mortars either... damnit!

OK.  so I've been building a few guys here and there,  almost have everything i want put together finished.  supremely frustrated that the heavy weapon teams come with so many bits but only a few crucial things missing preventing you from getting REAL mileage from the kit...  but I've figured out how to get Missile Launcher Teams, and Mortar Teams out of the kit by robbing bodies and legs from the infantry squad kits...  just need to invent more tripods to use all of the Las-cannons, Auto-cannons and Heavy Bolters...  in the mean time i might need to decide which of the three is most important...  wish i had another Command squad kit...  mostly because i haven't figured out how to convert another heavy flamer which wont look super out of place next to the PCS one.

 

still need to build the Chimera...  might do a "TANK DAY" and build it and the Razorback i have been putting off...

UPDATE! woohoo!

XW4YQuEJ_t.jpg rROwwaXp_t.jpg 2uvo5ctQ_t.jpg

(Idk why they uploaded rotated... Why on earth does any image uploading site autorotate ANY images? Sheesh)

improvised Work station is up and running... Focusing on my IG. gotta clear some of the build que since I have a few other IG things enroute.

I promise I'll do more frequent updates from now on.


(please let me know if the thumbnails open up to the full size images when y'all click/tap on em... When I tap on them it brings up a blank tab called "about blank")

Bonjour de La Nouvelle-Orléans!  I actually have a similar theme planned for my army.  My wife and I moved to "La Basse Louisiane" two years ago and we just spent our honeymoon in Québec.

I use IMGBOX because I can use it from my phone with very little trouble. Super important because I don't have a computer at the moment. (It turns out if I hold and open in New tab the thumbnails work). Also I can use the same images on multiple forums.
