insaniak,

So jealous of your Necromunda terrain. Interesting way of recreating the old classics using your Maelstrom's Edge stuff. I have been commenting on your other terrain thread.

Cheers,

CB

Thanks, guys!

Some progress on my Guard. I added the first infantry squad, using some more Maelstrom's Edge SecDef, and a heavy bolter, chainsword and bolt pistol left over from some Space Marine scouts. Also replaced the armoured Commissar's pistol with a storm bolter - Since in 2nd Ed, regular Commissars didn't have access to armour, I'll be running this guy as a Yarrick stand-in.

So, as fun as it can be to just build stuff at random, for the sake of winding up with a coherent and usable force at the end of the process, I decided to sit down and write up an army list for my fledgling Guard army. This involved a combination of trying to figure out something that was going to function ok on the table, while looking at what I can make using Maelstrom's Edge minis with a smattering of 40K parts where absolutely necessary. What I came up with is below... It's a little character heavy, partly because that means not having to build as many infantry squads in the absence of tanks, and partly because I just can't resist the allure of all of those psychic powers flying around the table.

I'll expand on this later with another command squad and some more infantry, and maybe look at some vehicle or rough rider options. Right now, I'm putting together the second infantry squad.

Nice, the orange flight suit works really well, especially when paired with the helmet.

Next Guard units...

- 'Ratling' stand-ins made from Epirian Contractors with SecDef arms and sniper rifles.
- 2nd Infantry unit with Sergeant's sword and plasma pistol stolen from Space Marine/Wolf Scouts, a MEdge Karist Radwave Emitter as a Meltagun stand in, and a lascannon made from a SecDef Chaingun with a barrel replacement. It's smaller than most modern 40K lascannons, although slightly larger than the Rogue Trader-era Guard lascannon. I think the barrel is too long, though, so will probably shorten it.
- Eversor Assassin stand in - an unconverted Karist Shadow Walker from Maelstrom's Edge.
- Inquisitor Lord stand-in - a Karist Kaddar Nova with some leg reposing and a right hand and staff (cybel glaive) taken from the MEdge 'Faction Expansion sprue'. The staff will serve as a force rod. He also has a Karist pulse pistol on his hip, which will count as a hand flamer.

Next up - scratchbuilding some mortars!

Marsayan is rocking some cool dance moves while using his psychic powers to get everyone to do the macharaina(sp?).

Nice little mortar scratchbuild. Will it have the spider legs from the robots or the drone type fans. If it gets any sort of mobility that is.

While I did initially consider having the heavy weapons on spider drone legs, I'm going with the mortar base just having a built in suspensor unit, to avoid it needing a huge base.
