These look great, the conversion work really makes them stand out from being 'cadians in urban outfits'.
Also like the fluff you've built around them - its important to have a story for the plastic toy soldiers!

I look forward to seeing this army develop.

Thanks gents! Your comments are really appreciated and a great source of continued motivation!

I have had a great time building the fluff gradually and am finding as I am opening different boxes of models to start putting together the story is writing itself, which is making the depth of the whole story grow richer with very little effort.

I strongly encourage anyone who is looking at starting an army or is working on changes/new units for an existing army to take a few moments to think how it fits in to the GW universe and what you want the army to be. Something as simple as wanting a model you like and a few other units to make a list is enough as a base for a story line and could inspire you to develop the army beyond what you first thought. As a simple idea on this theme consider giving your units battle honours: every time a LRBT destroys a significant enemy unit, paint on a tally mark or add a decal to celebrate the victory; or if your platoon wipes a mean unit in close combat, consider adding a momento (eg: a helmet) from the defeated unit to the bases of some of the models. Something that quick and simple really adds to your army over time.
