For a while I have been working on my Gravchute regiment, modelled off of British Paratroopers, with inspiration from the Special Air Service too.
The 16th Regiment is a regiment of Veterans, each man hand-picked from other Avonian Regiments, and put through a rigorous selection process. Picking out the best soldiers, with the most promising officers selected from the best academy on Avon. Because of this process the Regiment is small compared to most other Guard Regiments, consisting of 4 Battalions, each of 5 Companies. Each Company is broken down into 3 Platoons, each of three squads.
Also unlike many Guard Regiments, the Avon one-six is occasionally broken up and sent to various different warzones, sometimes single Companies are even sent, distributing their specialized skills and abilities where they are needed. Because of this, engineer and support personnel are attached at Company level rather than at Regiment or Battalion. A Company of Sentinels are also attached at Battalion level to provide extra heavy weapons to the Regiment on their drops, as a Gravchute regiment, that one-six has no Heavy Armour of its own and relies on man-portable Heavy Weapons and Imperial Navy support.
A group shot of what I have fully painted, unfortunately I made the terrible mistake of forgetting to base before undercoating which means I'm going to have some difficulty when I come round to trying to paint the bases.
Some of them have since had sand added to their bases today, and I'll get round to painting them at some point, maybe try and cover their feet and legs and spray, maybe just have to go for painting Black.
A pair of Regimental Advisors, one from the Avon 40th Artillery Regiment, the other from the Imperial Navy, as the One-six doesn't have it's own armour it relies heavily on both Artillery and the Navy for support.

I may try and make it look more like British Desert DPM in the future, but I think I'm happy with them, don't wanna clutter them too much.
Staff Sergeant Nikolaus Slater, using the rules for Guardsman Marbo, or occasionally Bastonne with a melta-squad, depending on how I feel like using him at the time.
As you can see, Nick is quite tall.
I apologize for how dark some of the pictures are, I don't have a light box or anything and probably picked a bad place to take the pictures anyway with the window behind them.
I'm happy with most of them, but having seen the pictures I realize how untidy some of the models are. I'm particularly unhappy with the medic, his arms where I've shaved off the shoulder pads are ugly and misshapen
