I decided to start this project log as a way of getting feedback and ideas on my project for this year, a full platoon of veterans. I'm slowly building up a full infantry company of Imperial Guard, I've already finished the command section and 2nd platoon of 541 Infantry Company, here's the pics of them mustered ....
There's more pics of them on my blog Corbania Prime
, if you're interested. Right, back to the project, 1st platoon is going to be my veteran platoon. I'm not sure on the size yet but I figure a bare minimum of a command squad and five squads, I'm not sure on whether to do the heavy weapons squads or not at the moment. So, I've been working out what I actually want in the way of unit types. So far, this is what I've come up with ......
- Snipers - a unit of 10 counts as ratlings. I've never liked space halflings, so I'm going to use the standard cadian and catachen snipers for the unit, I've already got six sorted.
- Harkers boys - a unit of infiltrating camo'd vets tooled up to do some damage led by my Harker model. I'm planning quite a bit of GS work on this squad.
- Shock troops - a unit of vets in carapace armour, I've got ten of the inquisition storm troopers who'll fit this role perfectly and not clash with the storm troopers I have already.
- Standard vets - two units of standard veterans customised with cadian and FW bits to make them stand out against my normal troopers.
That'll give me 5 squads of veterans and an interesting mix to 1st platoon as well as a wide range of hobby opportunities which will give me plenty to get my teeth stuck into. Pics of Harker coming soon guys.
