Hey this is my first thread hope i dont break any rules o-o
I create models for fun to let my imagination go wild not for playing.
First off i really want to create a imperial guard inspired by kill zone .The helghan
I dont really have the money for a new imperial army because i just love to exspand my space marines.
These are all the character i am going to build in the future .
My main core units are assault and rifle man *important* There all cadian troops
For the start of a main bodys I will shave off the eagle on the helms ( dont know the names for icons) shave down the chest on some bodys.adding some cloth to place where i feel is empty or judging by there class. skulpt gas mask and goggles . There wil be 2 tubes from the mask to the back. I will also skult knee pads and little bits of armour where i think should be added mostly in the clothing part . I really want to make a big fluffy packed guards men to me there a bit skinny.I know people will say use death korps of kreig but i just dont feel like using them . 1 reason is there heads/helmet.
For weapons i will be using the forge world elysian weapons pack because the assault rifles look very similiar to the las guns . The rest of the weapons will be used i will be coverting some flamers into light machine guns (for lmg trooper) . sniper for the snipers ,flamer for pyro troop , grenade launcher for grenedier , plas guns and plasma guns will be my support troopers ,Light machine guns for lmg trooper
Now for the fluffyness besides the extra armour . This will be used for most of the models . I will be use multiple space marine pouches and im going to use one of the larger pouch just cut in half from the space marines and connect the tube from the gas mask to the back . Then i will use either fw elysain equipment pack or maxs minis guards mans back pack and pouches.
Maxs minis has great coat legs now just for bottom torso . Those will be used for sergents and rifle men and other characters . Rifle men wont have alot of pouches and big armour like the assault . i picture them like fast moving troops. i will be using regular las cannons for them and just cutting and thinning down the guns at certain parts.
Now the elite units
I plan on adding alot of armour but maybe 2-3 pouches max .
With some space marine grenades and krak grenades.
I think ill make them similar to support troops but packed with grenades and other things exsplosive related
look a bit armoured but but light weight . Some canisters and some tools
My lmg troops
I want them bulky and full of ammo
If some know where i can find round drums that will help thats my main idea the the light machine guns
I will use some sort of messy camo look to them . But still showing some armour and stuff .
My elites are going to be commandos and elite shock drop troopers commandos sub machine guns are shortened down las guns .
The leader ,general, commander ,field commander ,idk
i might use a death korps model but i want him headless most of the leaders in kz is headless they are very pale . If i do make him headless he'll probly be holding his helm and a power sword.
He'll be followed by 2 commandos a banner carrier and some other specialists <can u guys think of ideas
half of there mask is covered in a cloth ,hardly no armour at all only one tube that goes around the body. i might use scout shotguns or submachine gun or make them a melee type and make my own type of melee troop . <potiential fast attack
shock drops troopers
submachine gun and full of armour but no back packs i picture them also melee and ranged there quick and quiet . they'll be either dropped of by air or drop pods<remind me of odsts
Vechicles ill do another time need a brake from typing i rewrote this twice. please tell me what you think . I know i missed alot of thing also i lost most of the writing because of internet connection so i probly lost some good ideas . Please tell your guys ideas possible troops,vehicles. ALOT OF GREENSTUFF WILL BE USED . i dont plan on making this a playable army but if you guys can find a way let me know . I need round drums for my light machine gun .If anyone know please tell me . this will probly be like a 1-3 year project counting on how fast i buy the models. I do have alot of time on my hands .But the painting will take the most time . Im slow and like to redo most of my stuff ,idk .Mind alot of my spelling mistakes this took me couple mins to type . Also when i do complete this i have another project the ISA.
