Welcome to my thread on what I hope will someday be a finished IG army.
Way back in the 3rd ed IG codex there was a small section on a little know regiment called the Lexxian 9th.
The brief description describes them as coming from a death world populated with many vicious predators. Each regiment would adopt one as a mascot, the 9th chose the Sawtooth, a feline predator that can grow to the size of a horse. It is claimed that a soldier must defeat one of these creatures before becoming a sergeant or officer. A trooper is allowed to wear a single Sawtooth fang for every successful campaign they have served in.
Ever since that small piece on this obscure regiment I have been captivated by it. This regiment is actually the product of nearly 4 years of planning. I've taken the core idea and expanded it. I'll post the background and regimental history in a later post.
For me I see the Lexxian troops as hardened figthers that use light infantry tactics such as scouting, inflitration, close quarter fire fights, stripped down kit etc. I've kit bashed this regiment from a variety of sources and this is the concept piece I came up with. I wanted to build an all plastic force and with only the one picture to go from I've got plenty of room to expand on.
This guy is actually going to be one of the squad sergeants, just need to add a bolt pistol, pouches and a few extras. Below is a group shot of the Regimental Command squad.
Medic, Standard Bearer, Commander, Master Vox Operator, Grenade Launcher Veteran.
A close up of the Commander, note the Sawtooth fangs on his belt, and on his armour. There's a fourth attached to the handle of his bolt gun.
So there it is, the beginning of my Lexxian 9th regiment. I hope that this project log will be of interest to all. I am running this log not so much for motivation, but for the great feedback and suggestions that everyone has.
