Default We Will All Go Together...

When we go.
An Imperial Guard army plog.

So I have decided to create this space for my imperial guard plog. The reasoning is that my old one is fairly convoluted with lots of half started projects and I hoped a dedicated log would encourage me to get more done. Hopefully this will also show my return to the hobby fully, as I try and get my guard to a playable point and play some games. I will include some background fluff for my army as I go, as the name suggested things are fairly dark for my guard and they may be loosing. Anyway I will have some follow up posts soon, assuming the Honduran wifi is capable of posting pictures. Stay tuned.

Mandatory picture post...

Ok so just to meet the requirements for pictures here are the two squads that I have painted previously. I think some touch ups might be needed, and I need to re order the squads for actual games. I have a rough idea of where to start army list wise; and need to get a platoon command squad ready next. My plan is to enter this years army competition. So I'm going to try and get stuff modelled and ready for when it starts.




Anyway here they are, nothing you haven't seen before so don't worry to much. But if you have any army direction advise feel free to pitch your oar in, always appreciate feedback.

Not sure that would fit the look I'm going for, but good suggestion.

Next up is some fluff for the army, it may even get a name!

Cheers.

Just a little fluff for my army, it's pretty fun trying to do it in the style of a Munitorum data file. Won't be back in England for another week yet so no actual progress on the models for a while, but feel free to ask if you want to access another file, of course I would have to check your clearance.

Nice! I like the data file, if you enjoy writing them, I'd like to access the ORBAT file for the 22nd and 13th in TF Spirit.

My army will mainly be made up of the 44th, with elements of the 22nd and 13th supporting.
I have also received word that Inquisitor Trebek has been dispatched to the Merida system to find out the fate of task force Spirit and the system itself.

.Folder: Merida Incident...
..Sub Folder: Munitorum records...
...File access: 13th Turan Ordinance...

The 13th Turan Ordinance:

Raised: 98.997.M41, planet Turan, standard tithes.

Air Defence Battery:
4 Hydras

Current Status: Unknown, no contact since arrival in Merida System, presumed lost.

Thought for the day: The Emperor fights on the side with the best Artillery.

Ok so that's the 13th, fairly simple regiment structure, shoot lots of shells at the enemy. I hope you like my alteration to Napoleon's quote regarding artillery.

Anyway i'v received news that inquisitor Trebek has reached the Merida system. Long range auspex readings show significant amounts of debris around the planet. It will take some time to reach the planet from the halo, however the inquisitor's ship has located and recovered the emergency data recorder of the Emperor's Spirit, and has began to decode the data. Hopefully we will soon know the fate of the Spirit, and of the regiments onboard.

Excellent stuff!

This is how my guard started out too. Then, they really took off in 2014 when I started filling out those bits that I had previously had 'elements' from... and now I have an immense force, capable of outstanding firepower!

Data access...clearance granted...

.Folder: Merida Incident...
..Sub Folder: Inquisitor Trebek's report...
...File access: Emperor's Spirit's data recorder...

Emperor's Spirit's data recorder:

Recovered: 185.997.M41, Merida System.

106.997.M41: Took four regiments of imperial guard aboard, damn ground pounders are already making a mess of my ship.

121.997.M41: entered Merida system, cruising time two weeks before we reach the planet. Iv informed the Colonel that he can contact the planet in a few days, once we have cleared the outer halo, and to stay off my bridge until then.

129.997.M41: we have made contact with the planet, things are even more messed up down there then we thought. The whole planet is at war with its self. Colonel Brecca is eager to get his men down there and sort it out. I for one am glad I will be staying up in orbit. We should be ready to start ferrying them down in a couple of days.

130.997.M41: Emergency automatic bridge recording initiated
What? What is it?
Sir, we have a proximity alarm... It's one of the SDF cutters, it's on a intercept course.
SDF vessel, this is Captain Utilla, alter your course immediately.
Impact in 30 seconds.
Fire thrusters, move us.
Sir we can't whilst we are launching shuttles, it would gut the ship.
Impact in 15 seconds.
Can't we shoot it?
With what Colonel, this isn't a warship.
All hands brace for impact.
Ship systems record impact, structure damage along the port side, hull breaches on decks 3, 5 and 6.
Damage report!
Coming in now sir.
Can we still launch the shuttles?
Yes sir I think so, yes shuttle 4 has just left the bay safely.
Morell that was one of yours right?
Yes sir, we were taking point on this one.
Captain, I'm picking up some strange energy readings coming from the cutter.
What kind of readings? Where from.
From the enginarium sir, it looks like some kind of energy build up.
Emperor's guts, they are overloading their engines.
Brecca to Danse, get our people of the ship, quickly, forget the kit just get them on the shuttles.
All hands this is the captain, abandon ship, abandon ship.
Sir shuttle 2 just launched.
Contact the ground forces, inform them of what's happened.
Shuttle 6 is away.
How long do we have?
End of recording, emergency procedure enacted, data recorder launched.

Clearly the mutiny in the PDF extended to the SDF. I'm unsure how many men made it to the ground, hopefully I can find out when we reach the planet. But this is unsettling. I think it's clear that captain Utilla and Colonel Brecca were still on the bridge when the ship was destroyed. Potentially so was Colonel Morell. Emperor be with them.

I'm glad you think so, but as Inquisitor Trebek's first findings show, not much of those assets may have survived the opening stages of the campaign.

On a modelling note, after travelling for over 24 hours, I will be home soon. And will dig out my guard and work out a plan. Yay!

Hey guys, finally home and had a nice day with the family today. Got my models out, with the "help" of my very inquisitive younger sister.

My plan is to obviously build a core army. So I have two squads, which I want to alter (expand later) and combine, and will need to add a platoon command squad, a company command and a vet squad and a chimera. So that will keep me busy.

Beyond that I have an idea for an auto cannon hw squad and russ conversion. But more on that later. As for my combined squad; want to drop both heavy weapons and the plasma. Take another grenade launcher and convert a vox man, and fill the gaps with regular troopers. I may stick the heavy bolter in the pcs for now, and maybe use the plasma for the vets.

Hopefully I will have something to show in the next couple of days.
