    The Imperial Guard Foot Soldier Thread!

    "I love the infantry because they are the underdogs. They are the mud-rain-frost-and-wind boys. They have no comforts, and they even learn to live without the necessities. And in the end they are the guys that wars can't be won without." - Ernie Pyle

    This thread is for all the foot-slogging, cavalry mounted, artillery manning, men, women and mutants of the Imperial Guard!

    I thought it was about time that the back bone of the guard got their own thread. We all love tanks but what about the guys who march alongside them? So if you have a any conversions, tips, tricks or just want to show off your latest squad then post them here for all to see.

    My most recent conversion, a prototype for a WW1 German themed force.



    And some of my older models.

    Fantastic German. The skin on the arms of the other blokes look great too. Can you do a tute on the skin? It seems, at that size at least, to strike a good balance between the appearance of depth and normal skin.

    To be honest i cant actually remember the recipe personally, all i can remember is that i blatantly stole it from spikyjames so all credit should go to him

    Edit: I trawled through spikyjames plog and found the recipe.

    Skin:
    Tallarn flesh base
    Ogryn flesh wash
    Tallarn flesh first highlight
    50/50 tallarn flesh/elf flesh next highlight
    elf flesh next highlight
    final highlight 50/50 elf flesh/skull white

    All i cans say at the moment is some plasticard, a fair bit of filing and a bit of G.S. Im going to be doing a detailed tutorial in my plog soon so keep your eyes peeled.

    Innerwolf, i like the use of the brettonian plastics and the pig iron heads. The stormtroopers look good too.

    Every model in this thread is awesome - I particularly like the winter Storms (ha!), though the meltagun seems a bit massive to be aiming like that.

    Hear hear!

    Here's what I have completed of The Royal Enfield Fusiliers, an IG regiment based on the Old Regular Army of 1914.





    @ innerwolf - Your Vostroyans are wonderful.

    I really like these guys. The fur looks just right.

    Did you base your troops on the mid-20th Century Cold War? I always get that image for some reason looking at your troops wilsonian.

    Great conversions. How have I missed your log? EDIT: Ah, no, I didn't miss it, I just haven't checked it for several years...

    As for me, I'll just highlight some various conversions I like. Firstly is an example of nine different special weapons made entirely in plastic, with different poses. No need to buy the expensive and repetitive metal figures.



    Next are Sanctioned Psykers. Again, entirely plastic with no identical models. Just root through all available boxes and sprues for the various different greatcoats, and swap the Astropathicus staffs around a little.



    Here's a lascannon with power cabling made out of headphone wire. Very simple, and allows you to have long flexible cable for many different poses. Also an autocannon with the loader in the midst of changing the ammunition box.



    Finally, the WFB Empire army has an excellent selection of plastic banners to use for standards. As they are blank, it also allows you to create your own insignia and iconography (in this case, my regiment's symbol is a winged hammer) to use instead.

    Re: The Imperial Guard Foot Soldier Thread!

    @ Morden279: I'm glad you liked them! I never got such a flattering compliment ^^

    @Lord Cook: Sir yes sir! I wanted to make them fit with my Vostroyans without going the fluff-wrong way (making them Vostroyans)
    Awesome psychers!

    If cavalry is allowed, here comes mine . I read the Vostroyan 22nd Firstborn Regiment uses rough riders under the name of Hussars, so I converted mine to resemble napoleonic times lancers.

    As long as its Imperial guard and not a vehicle then its welcome in this thread. (Not that i hate vehicles, just that they have their own thread)
