    WW2 8th Army and Modern Desert themed mixed-gender Guard Army

    So, three years and four months after my last post - and having gotten back into 40K again - I decided it was time to burn down my previous plogs (let's face it they were terrible) and start a new thing.

    That new thing is Guardsmen.
    Again.
    But not just any Guardsmen.
    Guardsmen and Guards-women.

    I spent a great deal of time looking around for the perfect models for my Guard army, something that would fit in with my old models (everything is based for deserts) but would also be something new. I've always loved the idea of gravchute armies so it will be made using the Elysian army list from Index - IAAM.
    After settling on my 1000 point list I selected my models, deciding I wanted to do a mixed regiment.

    1000 points Elysian list:
    HQ
    • Elysian Company Commander
    • Elysian Company Commander

    TROOP
    • Elysian Drop Trooper Squad w/ Grenade Launcher, and Vox
    • Elysian Drop Trooper Squad w/ Grenade Launcher, and Vox
    • Elysian Drop Trooper Squad w/ Grenade Launcher, and Vox

    ELITE
    • Elysian Drop Sentinel w/Heavy Bolter
    • Elysian Sniper Squad
    • Elysian Sniper Squad
    • Elysian Veteran Squad w/ Bolter on sarge, Shotguns, 3x Meltas, and Vox
    • Elysian Veteran Squad w/ Bolter on sarge, 3x Meltas, and Vox
    • Elysian Veteran Squad w/ Plasma Pistol, 3x Plasmas, and Vox

    FAST ATTACK
    • Tauros Assault Vehicle
    • Tauros Venator w/ Twin Lascannon

    HEAVY SUPPORT
    • Elysian Heavy Weapon Squad w/ 2 Mortars, 1 Missile Launcher
    • Elysian Heavy Weapon Squad w/ 2 Mortars, 1 Missile Launcher
    • Elysian Heavy Weapon Squad w/ 2 Mortars, 1 Missile Launcher


    In the end I decided on:
    • My Line troopers would be modeled after British 8th army in WWII
    • Veterans would be more modern looking troopers complete with Boonies
    • Sniper teams would be conversions and whatever cool models I could find
    • Heavy weapons teams would fit with the line regiments
    • Officers would be specialist models.

    As an Elysian list I also decided that at 1500 points my army would add three flyers:
    • Avenger Strike Fighter
    • Vulture with Punisher Cannons
    • Twice

    So to begin with, my two Company Commanders:
