Any ideas on what to use a Sanguine Guard squad as in the Chaos Dex? I really can't think of an applicable unit. There going to represent the elite guard of the Emporers Children, the ones with the halbards (I'm going to order the Grey knights weapon set alongside them). The Problem is there are no units sutible in the Chaos Dex with the right number of power weapons except termininators, which considering there bulk are right out.

Chosen can have a unit of 5 all with power weapons, or am I remembering wrongly?

Sure they don't have jump packs but tne they can infiltrate which i'm sure could be 'justified' as having been a pre-battle deep strike / surge?

Chaos Chosen. IIRC you can have a sgt with a power weapon and 4 other models with power weapons.

I think you could probably get away with terminators. Artificer armour gives them a 2+ save anyway. Just claim they have a personal forcefield generator and remember not to sweeping advance with them. Then make them all champions with a power weapon and combi bolter.

You could just use them as Raptors

The swords on the models dont have to be power weapons

I'd say Chosen is your best bet. Maybe switch out the jump packs for normal back packs.

yeah Id go infiltrating chosen with power weapons

its not really the best build for the unit but if your set on doing it this is what I would do

Well they have wings so possessed could be good. covers 2 of the mutations anyway (flight or power weapons)
