Orks and zombies to provide hordes of mutants(conscripts). The best part is when an apoc game comes up I line up my traitor guard alongside my chaos marines and all is sweet.

I bought a box of thosw wargames factory minis the other day. Those greatcoat models are excellent. I use them as stormtroopers or vets with carapace armor.
thats actually a good idea for a chaos army. But i want to some how use my CSM with them as well. What could they represent?
These guys seem like nice Nurgle models.

ahh, i guess i was under the wrong impression. normally i just play friendly games so any codex is legit.

as for your CSM issue, unless you were going to a hardcore event id just use them as your sargents.

well thats just it. I wanted this to be a tournament legal army(so more than likely no CSM)

Chaos because of its coolness! Lost and the damned armies arent youyr typical guard army either and add a unique flavour to it.

I like imperial better... and for unikeness you can do a rebel army or a partisans one, if they come from a hiveworld they may have lots of tanks and valkiries (they make them, like in Armaggedom) and be a very colorfull army.

Mixing catachan and cadians (at the least, necromunda, tallaran and others if you can) for equipment and uniforms you can make a very interesting and original imperial guards, non chaos, army, speccially when you paint them with "realistic" aestetics... civilian clothes mixed qith military fatiges for example...

And you can even mix caos in!
using the more human minis to make veterans or conscripts... a "conscript" or veteran may look like a zombie if comes from a partisan army... just look at some WWI photos, and many of those soldiers werent conscripts...
