Hello fellow Warseers, as part of my New Years Resolution, I am starting a log for my Imperial Guard army, the 29th Nortesians.
Fluff- Nortesia is a planet, that due to its abnormal weather patterns, is covered in various landscapes that range from alpine tundra in the northern and southern hemispheres, to rocky snow peaks and vast salt lakes anywhere in between.
It is home to many ab-humans, though they aren't natives, but are the survivors of a massive planet purge by order of Inquisitor Ewan Callaghan.
The purge resulted in the death of thousands of xenos, ab-humans, psykers, and others deemed heretical.
When the escaped found the planet of Nortesia, civil war soon broke out, the ab-humans, psykers and other heretics joined forces against the xenos.
The Inquisitor soon heard of the situation, and being incredibly slack, decided to let them stay, but also to send most of the systems military to police the rebels.
Once they arrived, the troops soon found out what they were in for. There was little fighting amongst the ab-humans, heretics and xenos and all was rather peaceful. They instead found that the planet was recently infested by an Ork clan, and used conscripted ab-humans and xenos in their ranks.
What the Imperium doesn't know is that Inquisitor Ewan Callaghan is actually a heretic himself an is under the influence of Chaos. His plan all along was to draw the majority of nearby troops to one place, an then take over all nearby planets. He made communications with any other planet impossible for the Nortesians, and removed any vehicles and spacecraft capable of space travel.
Everyone on Nortesia is remains completely oblivious to the fact that their homes are being destroyed by the forces of Chaos, and continue to fight Orks on the the overrun planet.
Thats the basic gist of the story behind the 29th Nortesians.
Modelling style- I have used basic Cadian models, done basic conversions on them, taking inspiration from the Death Korps of Krieg, Valhallan, and Steel Legion regiments.
One particular log that has inspired me is get to the chopper!s log at DakkaDakka, here.
Now on to pics!
Here are my basic shock troops, they were made and painted about a year and a half ago when I first started this force
And what I've been working on recently
Some Heavy Weapons
And a female Plasma Gunner for my Special Weapons Squad

Also, if anyone has any spare Zzap Cannon wheels with or without the chassis, could you PM me please? I can send you a list of bitz I have, or cash if you prefer
Thats about it, I would love to hear what you think of this army so far, and any work I post in the future, but until then, cya later
