The Stratix Legions are comprised of some of the most dedicated and loyal guardsmen in the Imperial Guard. The Stratix Legion was first raised during M.39 on the HIve planet Arya, shortly after an Ork incursion into the Stratix system directed at the Armory World known as Eagle's Helm. The Aryan legions were masters of close combat and trench warfare but due to the mountainous terrain, their tactics proved unless against the Orks. The Aryan Legion was almost completely wiped out and was consolidated with units from both New Ireland and Freeborne. Units from New Ireland were unique in that all peoples from the planet had a crimson hair color, and the people of Freeborne were masters of tank combat. The Aryan guardsman at first disdained having, what they considered, "lower humans" being part of their ranks, but grew to accept them as brothers once they realized the new units potential on the battlefield.

I'm creating an Imperial Guard army comprised of both Kriegish (Aryans) looking guardsmen and Cadians (New Irish and Freeborne). So far I have about 120 Cadians in various stages of being painted. I plan on having most of my Kriegish units mounted in chimeras and the Cadian troopers mounted in valks. I have 12 heavy weapons teams all with autoguns and lascannons, and 3 bazookas. I have tree scratched built Valks but i think i'm going to wait for the time being and buy real valks. My Kriegish Aryans will be made of Maxmini trench coat torsos and legs with Pig Iron Colony gasmask heads.

Right now I need Ideas on what additional vehicles I should give my army, and any special units I should buy. The Aryans hate mutants so orgyns and ratlings are out
Heres what I have painted so far:
