No probs, must admit I've never considered using IG in Space Hulk as I would have thought they would get whupped pretty quickly, but I might be tempted to buy some Pig Iron figures with gasmask heads to use as IG.
Picking up some Necrons might be a possibility as well, but must paint 15 Chaos termies first.


EDIT: going off on a tangent again, should add you've done a cracking job of those marines Patrick!

The goggles and the textures on the covered helmets are really, really nice.  :-*

As far as Imperial Guard in Space Hulk are concerned, if memory serves right one of the expansions from first edition had a campaigns book with rules for weapons such as las-pistols and lasguns. I'm sure it had a point-buy system for designing your own scenarios as well, with rules for Imperial Guard.

Termies get whupped too if the stealers reach them, it's all about shooting them first I guess. That said, I never played 1st edition.

Of course you can always just substitute the models and leave the rules intact, works for 2nd edition anyway.

Great models too, nice paintjob and those goggles are awesome! Might have to steal that idea 8)

Yeah, I really gotta paint my troopers ;)

You're partly right, Deathwing had a mission generator and Genestealer had profiles for lasguns etc, but there were no rules for Imperial Guard until the Citadel Journal article I linked to above.

I was really inspired by the work on this thread-do much do that I secured a few squads of these excellnt Copplestone troopers just yesterday. If the OP is still around, would you mind sharing the paints you used for the fatigues? Just what green/OD is that? Any help would be much appreciated!

Good-looking figures.  It's hard to make military style PJ's interesting.  But you have. Very well done.

Hi Hrothgar,
The paints that I used were all from Reaper Master Series.  The base color is Camouflage Green followed by a shading of brown+green ink. The highlight is Camouflage Green and Linen White. The highlight might be a little stark, so wash the green with Matt Medium and Camouflage green.

We would like to see pics when you are finished!  lol

Stunningly gorgeous!

I just ordered a bunch of E-4 Troopers, and I swear these are very similar.  I'm assuming Copplestone did those as well.


I'll bookmark this as a fantastic reference.  If I could get mine only half as good I'd be pleased!

Well done.

He did all the Future Warriors for Grenadier, IIRC.
