After wondering what my next army will be, I've finally chosen. Since I love Guardsmen and wanted to do Chaos I thought "Why not do traitor guard?". So basically I want my Traitor Guard to look like the ones from Space Marine. I saw these miniatures in a store a while ago that people used to use as Steel Legion (Though they weren't games workshop models). They were the same scale though. I thought they were Warlord miniatures but from looking on the site, they're not. So if anyone knows these models or something similar could they tell me please. Thanks.

Probably Wargames Factory Stormtroopers (http://wargamesfactory.com/webstore/alien-suns)
I am using them as the basis for some Valhallan conversions

There are always the ones from pig iron productions too. You can use them to kit bash with IG kits and whatnot.

I have seen these used to make some damn good looking IG variants of Steel Legion and other WWI/II gas mask stylised troops.

EM-4 do a range of future warrior types (originally by Grenadier) in haz-mat suits, complete with full face gasmask. Scroll down to the 'NBC troops' near the bottom of the page - though the picture quality isn't great. Copplestone Castings have a few more in a very similar style (hardly surprising, as Copplestone sculpted the originals).

THANKS MADPROPHET! IT WAS THEM! I'll check the other ones out though, and I've actually used Copplestone Castings models before. I used their Civilian Militia to make Conscripts, and the female troopers for random female guardsmen. Thanks guys

Of course, there's also Forge World's Defenders of Vraks, for a more overtly Chaotic (and expensive) force.

I really don't like the Pig Iron heads. Not for how they look, but for how they're ever so slightly out of scale, and for how a lot of people will just plop them on bog standard Cadians and call the job a good 'un. I know I'm in the minority on that, though.

I purchased a couple of boxes of the Wargames factory Stormtroopers and tbh I was disappointed.

They didn’t fit in with GW's Steel Legion models and the quality compared to GW plastics I found to be rather poor.

Still I guess they are alright for bulking out a Guard army.

That's exactly what I did with my guard. I bought a couple packs of Kolony Militia helmet heads and put them on cadians. Looks great, same scale and everything.
