Astra Militarum/Imperial Guard "Wiki"

Ave Omnissiah!

My blog is primarily my own personal fluff in the Warhammer 40,000 universe regarding the Draconis system such as the Knight House Yato in Draconis III, the Imperial Guard...I mean, Astra Militarum regiment trained there, the Draconian Armored Defenders, and the Forge World of Draconis IV with its Adeptus Mechanicus priesthood, Cybernetica cohorts and Skitarii legions, and the Titan Legion, Legio Draconis, known as the Dark Dragons.

Oh, and I'll throw in the Thousand Sons from time to time because they're my favorite Space Marine Legion. I refuse to believe that they are Traitors! They're just...ahem...secretly loyal to the Imperium!

Imperial Guard

Last week I mentioned that I procured a second-hand collection of Imperial Guard, right? But I didn't get to show it because I forgot to take pictures of them.

Well, wait no more! I took pictures of them! Here is my new collection!

All the infantry!

Armored vehicles
 As you can see, in addition to the 66 Guardsmen, a bunch of Company Commanders and special weapon holders (7 plasma gunners, 7 flamers, 3 heavy flamers, 1 grenade launchers, 4 meltagunners and a bunch of heavy weapons), I also have 2 Hellhounds and 5 Leman Russ tanks.

Oh, and I added more units to my Imperial Guard army. Well, not just Imperial Guard. I got hold of a Tech-priest Enginseer so that he can serve as a HQ for my Adeptus Mechanicus army. The rest of them are for my Imperial Guard. As you can see, I have a Lord Commisssar, a Primaris Psyker and 3 plasma gunners! And Sergeant Harker! The Primaris Psyker and Sergeant Harker are kitbashed, as you can see, but it doesn't matter, right? As long as they look the part. I also kitbashed a Stormspear rocket pod for my Imperial Knight, though it looks nothing like a rocket pod. It can double as twin Icarus autocannons if I need it to.

Reinforcements for the Imperial Guard (and Adeptus Mechanicus)

So yeah, kitbashing is funny if you can get used to it. I guess. The force stave looks a bit weird because I carved it out of 2 lasguns and a regimental flag (trimmed the flag off and used it as the psyker's cloak instead). I bet it's fragile and I don't fancy having to cart him around, but I don't think I have a choice.

I'll be getting another Company Command squad, where I'll kitbash a 2nd Primaris Psyker and get my plasma gunner, heavy flamer and flamer guys along with the final company commander. Let's hope everything goes smoothly! If things go as planned, I might even get a Shadowsword tomorrow!

  1. Can always use more guardsmen, but those tanks are a nice score. I managed to find a FW Tallarn tank commander and I'm thinking about going legit and not just 'counting as' all my cadians.

    1. That sounds really cool! I use a homebrewed regiment, so I'm flexible enough with mixing and matching different regimental doctrines, but I can see the appeal in going legitimate!
