Hellados One walking around holding his own arm

One using his own arm as a club

A hopping guardsman could be fun (maybe even mid hop


Was you thinking the one who had lost his legs could be holding himself up with one arm and still shooting with the other?

Think you need to watch Saving Private Ryan (beach scene) and Band of Brothers (all of it it's amazing) for inspiration

Yipyioh Plenty of good ideas coming in, thanks so much guys!

I have started to make a list of the "deaths" for the Guardsmen, and have typed it into a document which I have uploaded on a sister thread to this over at Dakka. I'd upload it here but I'd rahter just have the one upload and point you guys to it so you can look at it, laugh, cry, rage, and then come up with more ideas!

I'll be updating the file regularly, and it can be found on this thread:

vipertaja Hopefully somewhat different ones:

Guardsman sinking into quicksand/mud.(Or being dragged underground by something)
Guardsman being electrocuted by communication equipment or something? Guardsman struck by lighning!?
Guardsman being under psychic/sorcerous attack?
Guardsman that's been run over?
Guardsman trapped/crushed under rubble.
Haemophiliac bleeding out from papercut or haemophobiac fainting from it? You decide.
Guardsman puking guts out.
Guardsman "checking the barrel" of his gun Looney tunes style.
Guardsman running with scissors.
Guardsman choking on something?
Guardsman throwing the pin, not the grenade?
Guardsman dying from boredom (ok, maybe not).
Guardsman with a broken limb or two?
Guardsman dying of a heart attack?
Guardsman being dragged/held down with hooked chains...that hellraiser style "Chains of Torment" spell used by sorcerers in dawn of war.

vipertaja Definitely an idea I'd like to see followed through.

Suggestions(some of which are a bit similar to already suggested unfortunately) :

Someone falling onto their own sword/knife? Also kind of similar but walking around impaled with sword.
Guardsman melting due to some corrosive substance
Guardsman about to turn into chaos spawn.
Guardsman infected with nurgle's rot or other.
Guardsman infested with tyranids doing the whole "Alien/parasite wasp" thing.
Guardsman that has drowned with his head in a small puddle.
Guardsman devoured by local flora or fauna.

Doing greenstuff flames is not hard but if you don't really don't want to you cut the top knot off some ork heads and glue them on and paint them as flames. Simple and easy to do plus most ork players don't use the head with the top knot they cut them off.

You could have a guy tap dancing on a land mind or taking a whiz on an electric fence.
The one guards man with several bullet holes in him flipping off the enemy.

Chaplain-Grimaldus The plastic Cadian or Catachan set has some where you can put binoculars on or so forth, pointing hand, holding his hand to his mouth to shout etc.

Sounds good man! Bring some visceral realism to the table, an army like the Guard takes horrendous casualties!

For the suicide what about some of the heavy weapon team arms? They are in a fairly good position ad would need less work.
I've honestly NEVER handled a heavy weapons team before, I previously just used other models like roots with Smartguns and such. Any recommendations on which heavy weapons arms would work best? Or is there just a single "general" set of arms that attaches to all heavy weapons?

I just thought the two-bases thing would be funnier, and I'd always stick the two bases in the same squad.

DestroyerHive Have a tank running over guardsmen.
Barbed wire on a tank, with guardsmen stuck in it.
A guardsman peaking out of a tank, slumped over the heavy stubber.
A Commissar dressed as the grim reaper.
A guardsman drinking poison.
A guardsman riddles with bullet holes.
A coffin on a base.
