Default (ab)using the Lost and the Damned list for a mixed Imperial force

Hi

My thoughts on my next army....I want to build a SM based force, but I also want to use & model a large number of the GW minis. I think the LaTD can do this:

HQ
Probably use CSM to get bog standard SM type HQ, maybe add a few Chaosy things to get a "character".

Elites
- Dreadnought
- maybe an elite SM outfit (Terminator types) or some fluff to justify an Obliterator

Troops
SM - ragbag of SM survivors from various chapters cobbled together from defenders, lots of "borrowed" gear
IG - I want one unit of city militia types (Tallarn), one of Imperial Navy (emergency defence)
Mutants become city defenders - opportunity to use lots of Necromunda etc etc etc

Fast Attack
- Rough Riders
- SoB as raptors

Heavies

- L/R Tank
- Basilisk
- HW squad.

Thoughts?

Defilers would be hard to justify... Dreadnought combined with local variant of Leman Russ?

I am sure you saw the "counts as" article in last month's White Dwarf. I don't see any problem in using the Lost and the Damned to represent a group of Imperial survivors. It actually sounds like a really neat idea. It always was one of the more characterful lists GW ran.

Depends on your location, I get the OZ WD, nothing on it in there.

Perhaps they'll release it this month.
