Default Examples of High-tech Imperial Guard?

Since I'm finally working on my Imperial Guard(Only got a Kasrkin Squad and a Valkyrie, but the rest is coming), I need some inspiration. I want to make my guard look as High Tech as possible, so I was wondering if anyone had any examples of what other people have done for a High-tech or modern looking Imperial Guard Army.

I mostly need ideas for improving the look of the IG vehicles(Chimera-chassis vehicles, Leman Russ, etc... Valkyrie looks pretty good already) , since I'm using Elysians and already am planning on putting some scopes on the lasguns and putting balaclavas on the heads, but infantry examples are awesome as well.

I've been searching google for a while and couldn't really find anything, so anyone willing to help will get an E-Cookie. Thanks.

Did they make an Elysian Guard regiment? I was looking through my Feb 2011 issue of White Dwarf and they had an Elysian Trooper, that was different from the conversion someone first made for them waaaaaay back in the day during the Armegeddon campaign.

Wonder what this does

Forge World is your dream.

If you're looking for Elysian Chimera based, *shudder* try having a look at combining a Tauros (or 2, or a Venator) with a Chimera. Make them on wheels.

Perhaps a Predator Turret (Baal Flamer for Heavy Flamer/Inferno Cannon, swapping autocannon for a single Lascannon = multilaser, and there's no point in a heavy bolter).

Lemon Russ, could use the Mars Alpha hull - more sleek.

As said, taking any spare standard lasgun muzzle breaks, clipping them off, and the Bullpup carry handles, and reattaching as scopes are the way to roll.

Could perhaps look into current attachments on weapons - telescopic stocks, longer barrelled DMR rifles, bipods, foregrips, UGL's, MASS, railsets, perhaps changing the ammunition box from a battery to proper ammuniton, etc.

Have a search round tactical websites such as UKTactical for ideas.

Ya...not gonna hack and slash a perfectly awesome model like that. Might use the Tauros as a count-as hellhound.

I may this for my Chimera, I had seen it before but I completely forgot about it until you mentioned putting the Chimera on wheels. It looks good based on the final picture put up.

Good idea. The Predator turret would definitely help with the hideously small turret they currently have on the Chimera.

Found it on the Forge World website, but it has only a single picture with a not so good angle. Do you know where I could find some more pics?

I had never thought of that before you mentioned it in my other thread. And you can find bulk lasguns so cheap on eBay

I'll check it out. I already found this awesome tutorial for miniature Digital camouflage. Rock salt, who knew?
