    Hello and welcome to the home of the 6th Royal Australianus Regiment.
    The 6th is a fighting outfit of the mighty Imperial Guard, and is my first documented project.
    Here you will see the project unfold, from the first squads to the full regiment.

    6th Royal Australianus Regiment is based upon the 6th R.A.R (6th Royal Australian Regiment)
     in the Vietnam War, spcifically Delta Company, but later, if time and budget allow, the others also.

    To begin, the 6th Royal Australianus Regiment are a jungle fighting regiment, and the following
     doctrines have been chosen to reprsent them:

    Jungle Fighters (JF)
    Light Infantry (LI)
    Harderned Fighters (HF)
    Special Weapons Squads

    The first purchase (4th April) will consist of:

    1x Cadian Battle Force
    1x Catachen Battle Force
    1x Cadian Heavy Weapons Platoon
    1x Catachan Heavy Weapons Platoon

    The first squads to be made will be the:

    Delta Company Command

    Major Henry Smath (JF, LI) 100pts
    J.O. - Laspistol, CCW
    1x Guardsmen with Master-Vox
    2x Guardsmen with Rocket Laucher
    1x Guardsmen with Lasgun

    11th Platoon Command

    Lt. Gabriel South (JF, LI) 80pts
    J.O. - Laspistol, CCW
    1x Guardsmen with Vox
    2x Guardsmen with Rocket Launcher
    1x Guardsmen with Lasgun

    Following this will come 2 squads of troops so that 400pt battles can be fought
    (combat patrol states only one troops choice must be present)



    i have written a small 400pt armylist to field, and i should e able to make them with the extra bitz. i ran this lit through the IG board, and i got a pretty good response from it:

    Major Henry Smath (JF, LI) 75pts
    J.O. - Laspistol, CCW
    2x Guardsmen with Rocket Laucher
    2x Guardsmen with Lasgun

    Speacial Weapon Support Squad 45pts
    1x Guardmen with Sniper
    5x Guardsmen with Lasguns

    11th Platoon
    Lt. Gabriel South (JF, LI) 75pts
    J.O. J.O. - Laspistol, CCW
    2x Guardsmen with Rocket Launcher
    2x Guardsmen with Lasgun

    11-1 (HF, JF, LI) 103pts
    Sergeant Bruce Black -Lasgun
    6x Guardsmen with Lasguns
    2x Guardsmen with Heavy Bolter
    1x Guardsmen with Grenade Launcher

    11-2 (HF, JF, LI) 103pts
    Sergeant Victor Ansley -Lasgun
    6x Guardsmen with Lasguns
    2x Guardsmen with Heavy Bolter
    1x Guardsmen with Grenade Launcher

    This provides a core force, and central firebase for when i get a larger force.

    6 days until the big purchase


    My original plan was to combine the catachan arms with the cadian plastics, however whilst flicking through my large WD collection,  I decided against it. I will use primerely the catachan plastics, never theless the army will continue.
    Unfortunatly, due to serious budget cuts to the defence sector this month, I am only able to purchase one battleforce, this being the catachan battleforce. this still alliws me to build both command platoons, and two sentinel walkers.

    4 days until the smaller purchase
    NEXT UPDATE: WIP squads

  • The Mortar seems pretty odd being chest deep. And I dont like how the other 2 mortars is not on bases. I bet they will breck during transport or get lost. But thats just me.

    I do really like the RPG style rocket launcher. Thats really nice.

    Also my grandpa was in the Aussie Special Ops in Vietanam so this will be kind of fun to watch ;)

  • yeah they look pretty weird are u basing them though if u spamed water effects then u could make it look like they are set up in a swamp. if i just said your idea great but if not feel free to steal it....

    just thinking

    with the other mortars u do actually need those bases or i know some noobs gonna have a fit bout it

    they always do

    no offense its not actually all of u
    The imperial guard is comprised of real men... they go to war in nothing but a paper vest (well it may as well be)
    unliek those space marines and their fancy pancy adamantium armour....panzies!
