Default In the Emperors name Let none Survive - Imperial Guard Log



My past
Ive been in the hobby for some years now and as any hobbyist enthusiasm has come and gone through time but ive always enjoyed it.

Why Imperial Guard?
I have always loved the look and feel of the imperial guard and nothing helps more than the fact that you can relate these troops, to the troops of today.

Why Elysian Models?
These are the most modern looking troops in the imperial guard range and that is exactly what I want.

How to paint them?
From the beginning I wanted them fighting in the desert which can give me a very warm looking army. These models are to wear more appropriate camouflage than what is usually showed by games workshop

Background
I wrote my own background for my army, which can be found below. I think things like this really do add that bit more depth to an army that makes it go from your models to your force.

So what you have all been waiting for, the models
I intend to start by building a 1500pt first then expand with models that I want. Here’s my first batch

Own Painted

Company Command in Chimera
Psyker Squad in Chimera
Platoon Command
Infantry Squad in Chimera
Infantry Squad in Chimera
Special Weapons team
Veteran Squad in Chimera

Vendetta

I like this dude.

In the Emperors name I grant you a dose of rep for your nicely painted models and cool background.

I love the Elysian minis, so it is cool to see a plog with them.

Being a treadhead I look forward to seeing how you carry the camo scheme over to the Chimeras.

Not much to report recently
havent got much done as i have been on holiday for the last week
but whilst on holiday i decided that i wasnt happy with my company commander
so he has jumped my table line to the front and i have produced this :

Two simple conversions have taken place, a head swap and a pair of boot swaps

So i introduce to you Major Joseph Endymion and Max the Dog







Next up is going back and finishing my special weapons team
Thanks for all the compliments it has really helped me keep my motivation through this blog

Been very quiet recently as well as quite busy but i have still found time to do some painting

unfortunately most of it has been on terrain in a big push to have a fully painted gaming board for the summer but i have still found time to finish my special weapons team

I have painted more detail on these because of your suggestions and wonder if you think they are an improvement, if they are i will plan to go back and put the detail on my previous models



and a big individual picture of my favourite model in the unit



Up next will either be my veteran squad or the chimeras for the infantry squads

Your style is improving... the only comment I would make is careful how you blend styles for different parts of the model. Your last pic the pants look great with the heavy dry brush affect, however the visor color is crystal clear stand out, perhaps a lighter highlight or even dry brush with a small thin brush over that area will give the figure more conformity.

Thank you means alot to know i am getting somewhere

The visor may have something to do with the fact i had only just painted blue varnish onto it above hawk turquoise. Ill definately try your suggestins once i know it wasnt just the fresh coat

Very drab, color style, I like! However, the visor sticks out like a sore thumb, and could do with some dirty-ifying.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

I am with Jackal, I really like the muted color scheme of your uniforms, but the red white and blue on the helms is just too clean and vibrant. It needs some weathering to make it look right. I will say that your style and skill has definitely improved since your first group that you posted up and I look forward to more of your work.
