Default Feudal World Guard

While working on my Sisters of battle I'm also trying out some imperial guard to work with them. I reckon my sisters are going to need some heavy support, and these are the guys who are answering the call.

I'm not a big fan of the cadians or catachans. Both are too chunky in my opinion. I thought I'd make my own guard for a unique feel and something that would go better with my sisters. I'm trying a combination of brettonian men at arms with cadian weapons and gear. So far I have assembled an infantry squad and a command squad. See below.

This is the infantry squad.



Some close ups on individual guys.



And this is the command squad. I'm quite pleased with how the officer has turned out.



These guys are ready for priming now so I'll be painting them soon I hope and posting some pics when they are done. Hope you like them, and C+C is welcome.

I've seen it done before and everytime I do I love them. Great work Someguy. The Officer does indeed look great. What is the guy next to him?

How easy are the conversions by the way?

It isn't all that hard to do. The Cadian arms need a lot of cutting up to fit on the men at arms' bodies and then sometimes some GS. I found that some torsos were easier to work with than others.

Positioning the models is the hardest part. It's relatively easy to get them standing in a kind of neutral "at ease" position with the lasgun pointing down. Getting them to look like they are aiming at something is harder. I haven't yet tried making them run, crouch or anything like that, but I may do later.

The heavy wep teams take a while to do, since I've been feudalising them. These are some close ups of them.

Haha I get it now. Very nice.

I was very impressed with the Heavy Weapons Teams. Rhino wheels right?

Leman russ/chimera wheels. I got a sprue of them ages ago and they have come in very handy.

Those look awsome, and with all those spare cadian bits I expect to see some impressive body-barricades too!

Those are fantastic!! If someone had told me they were mixing Brets with Guard I would have scoffed at the idea. Glad to be proven wrong.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

These are cool. Ive seen it done before for blood pact very effectively. They used goblin faces for the grotesque masks.
