New Imperial Guard Minuatures Coming!!!!!
« on: January 1, 2006, 04:34:58 PM »
'turns vox amplifier on Ultra'   ;D
   
    New IG troops are coming as i have heard from GW personnell today as i was looking for paints. In june they are releasing the Vostrolian imperial guard. They said they are a mix of Valhallan and Steel Legion. Great coats was all they could say they wore at the moment but it gives us a hint towards what they will look like. In the first week the Battle force will be released for 90$ and there will be plastics too.

    I have also heard of a plastic baneblade but they werent sure of that but theres a good chance.

Thats all i have to report now.

Yup, old news. The release of the first Vostroyen platoon is planned for 17/04/2006 together with a new 'nid lictor and a new 'nid biovore. The Firstborn will be released in 01/05/2006.

A further summery of release dates:
08/05/2006: Vostroyen lascannon team and command squad
15/05/2006: Vostroyan mortar team and officers
22/05/2006: Vostroyan assault weapons

And that's all that my list says :P , beware these dates can still be shifted around and might as well be all released at the same time as the city of death codex (29/05/2006)

Greetz,
Alexander

Woah... I thought that these new guard are going to be metal.  Are you sure they are plastics?

Also, are there any pictures of them, or is it too early for that?

Based on the prices I have seen for these guys posted, I would say they are going to be an all metal army. At least a good portion of it will be metal. Untill I see pics of these new IG I will hold my judgement. A new year and a new regiment! Ah! All is well in the IG!  ;)

From what I've gathered, the basic troops will be plastic, while pretty much everything else will be metal.
As to what they look like...
Turn to page 33 of Codex: Imperial Guard.  I just noticed the resemblence of the Guardsmen there to the descriptions of the new Vostroyans, and I can't believe that I hadn't noticed that before...
Just a thought.

hmmm, i was under the impression they were going to be an all metal army, however if its true they'll have interchangable heads (steel legion/valhallan style), then it wouldn't surprise me if the squads were plastics.

Seeing as there is a battle force coming out, it is probable there will be quite a few plastics... thinking about it.


Can't wait anyway, i want my Army to have a bit of variety to it (currently have a platoon of Cadian models, a platoon of Catachan models and small platoon of Steel Legion models(only got the Command Squad and 2 Squads, rather than the 5 Squads the Catachan and Cadian platoons have available to them).

No, and if there was then i'd personally go on a murderous rampage through the GW H.Q. in Nottingham, the Orks, Dark Eldar and Eldar are in desperate need of a new codex, i'm already irked by the extras the Guard will be getting in City of the Dead.

The plastic/metal ratio will be just like the catachans and cadians we have now. This means basic troopers and heavy weapon teams will be plastic and the more elite stuff like officers will be metal.

From what I've gathered, the basic troops will be plastic, while pretty much everything else will be metal.

lol, well these guys certainly match the discription (combo of steel legion and valhallan), kinda cool to be honest, men with greatcoats and gasmasks.

Nope.  The Vostroyan will be all metal.

Hmnm... it seems like nobody's certain about whether the troops are plastic or metal.  We should wait until somebody has official GW confirmation on this.

Why? It's already been said on Portent Warseer that the models are metal. I think this is solid information.
All the Emperor requires of us guardsmen is that we stand the line and we die fighting. It is what we do best. We die standing.

Yes interesting thought on this! I see that a lot of them have cyber enhancements. Maybe this we come up in their doctrines. One of the troopers in that pic seems too have a Cadian pattern lasgun.

I guess they are metal then.  That makes sense if Alexander's release dates are correct, because if they were plastic they would have a heavy weapons box like the Catachans and Cadians, rather than having seperate lascannon and mortar releases.

Ah well, I can still dream of plastic Valhallans/Steel Legion...

But Oink - who I trust from his rumours in the past - said that they would be plastic - and other sources I have heard (the majority say plastic.)

I believe they will be plastic from this - but to be fair only time will tell.
