I am building my Steampunk IG army and Want to know what I should use for my Regular Infintry. I was concidering Empire Milita, or Bretonnian Men at Arms. What do you think? If you have a Suggestion, Links Please!
I straight away thought about the warmachine line. Some of these infantry models look superb. However you have the two problems of it not being officially legal as well as being expensive. I also noticed that you have warmachine referenced in your signature so I guess you've had a think about their figures already. Here are some units that you could use: http://privateerpress.com/warmachine/gallery/khador/units/winter-guard
I would stay away from warmachine as a whole, but that is just my opinion. The reason being (in addition to price and not being tourny legal) is they are full metla, I don't know about you, but full metal minis have been the bane of my converting existance. I hate trying to do a major conversion on a metal mini, I would hate to think about doing a conversion on a full metal army.
As for tanks, that is simple: Use standard Imperial design tanks, but just 'steampunk' them up. Think of it like you would doing an ork looted conversion. Your simply taking the base vehicle and adding bits to it, but instead of dirtying them up, your teching them up. Extra hoses, pipes, and other bits will work just fine. You'll also want to use alot of brass paint on a fail ammount of the metal that is not armor plating.
Brass was used in alot of things during the victorian age, but the armor that used was still made of cast iron that was sometimes painted over.
