Forward Planning

I'm starting to come to the end of a few projects, they've sort have snuck up on me without me realising. I only have a squad of ten and 6 heavy weapon teams to finish off 2nd Platoon. With the advisers done, I've only got the command squad troopers to finish of the Company Command Squad, and I'm working on those now. Even my Armoured Assault Company is almost done, after the vanquisher, I've got a executioner to do and it's done for the foreseeable future.

So, my mind has been wondering, trying to think of what to work on next. Veterans? Valkyrie squadrons? Amphibious force? Artillery? So many choices, but I think I've got it. I picked these up in a trade last year.


In total, there's 10 officers, 35 lasgunners, 27 special weapons, 6 heavy weapons teams, one sentinel standin (I built that) and one centaur standin. I reckon I can build a pretty good special forces unit on of them. I'm basing it around a company command squad, a couple of stealth vets with lascannons offering long range support. A platoon based around Al'rahem, that can outflank supported by two special weapons squads with demo and melta. Add in Harker with demo vets for some tank hunting and Marbo and the snipers for good measure.

After my recent adventures in sculting, I can see quite a bit more sculpting in this force, especially as I've got at least 40 camo cloaks to do and I'm putting webbing and berets on them.
I reckon I'll end up with quite a good lighting strike force.

So, what do you think guys? Am I mad? Inspired? Disillusioned? Love to hear your thoughts.

Sounds like you need to get to work...LOL.

Every other army I have ever tried to paint always seems to leave me wanting something more. With the Imperial Guard, the possibilities seem to keep coming and coming and coming...

Cheers!
