Default Imperial Guard Concept Ideas

Here are a few Ideas i have for my new IG army that I am starting up. I am planning a Catachan-themed army, but rather than jungle fighters, I am going for City/Hive Fighters. Ideas and criticisms appreciated.

Let me know which of the two you think fit the theme, as I am rather torn atm. Note, I realize the bionic eye and goggles dont fit completely, realized this after the fact.

You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'

I did the drawing, but had the wife do the colouring as she is far superior at those kinds of things. I have the original concept images somewhere at the house. The small details are her touches though.

Any opinion on which is better?

I think the second one looks much more fierce. I think the colours look more gangy. How about you give them some cool gang tattoos?

dont take this the wrong way, but the way their hands and legs are positioned they look a bit gay. Howeve, that being said the wrong on the right looks way better. I like your idea of using catachans as city fighters. Cant wait to see some models.

yeah, they look a bit like some gay emo fashion contest.. not very imperial guard, no offence meant. i can't really say something to it cause they distract me a bit. if you trying to emphasize on a catachan city fighter look, they should come more brutish and way more armystyle --> urban camouflage. the big zipper really does not fit. they remind me more of some lone inquisitors gang gunslinger. a bit desperado style.. but nice painting anyway.

There is no such thing as too many tanks.
