Default Rogue IG

RIght now i am collecting Tau, but after i'm done collecting them, i was thinking of collecting Imperial guard. i like the fact im fighting for human side, and the massive tanks. but they have a " good guy feeling" just like the tau. so i was thinking of making some Rogue IG. like pirates sort of. There home world would be on some deserted moon behind some planet undetectable by most means. Granted they would have a limited Army list, but I could involve Mercs a whole lot. I'll have to thinka l ot more on colors, and fluff behind them but i think this would work out ok. just wanted to know what you all think of this idea.

If you want to play IG, but dont want to be "good", then just do traitor guard. Get all guard units, except commissars, priests, and other obvious imperial units. There are rules in the Lost and the Damned codex.

It's a good idea, coming up with backing fluff is always good for an IG army to differentiate between the billions of faceles goons with flashlights. *You could make use of abhumans like Ogryns, Xenos Mounts, and Ratlings to represent limited manpower and the need for bringing in vagabonds and vagrants to fill the ranks.

LaTD or Traitor guard is an option, but it's evil by neccesity and chaotic rather than simply rebel.

ya see, i was thinking more like rebels who hate the ways of ther emporer or something like that. but there not purely evil. they'll be likes mercs, fighting along side any army, granted they pay em well. But they will have a hint of evil. like fighting along dark eldar or chaos space marines by there own free will.
i just thought of something. do you think that i could use raided weapons and stuff like weapons i got off of dead orks or tau, and use em? and also for tanks, i'll have a limited amount of them but mostly i'll use raided tanks like the orks do.

Ruleswize, no you can't. You could use counts-as rules for looted vehicles but legally you couldn't wihtout opponent's permission.

neat idea. the tanks would not have to be a problem, just constrain their use. abhumans sound nice, and include some kroot as mercs who inadvertantly joined up.vets would be a must,as well as special weapons teems to represent the elites your army containes from countless battles and expereince. same with HW squads. drop troops would be nice,to represent that they dont have huge ships to drop them off brfore hand, and their fleet may be a mix of many different merchant ships with necessary "adaptations"

hope this helps.good luck, and thank you for chosing the guard

Nothing stopping you using a completely unrestrained list - just rewrite the fluff to suit.

Priests don't have to be Imperial - they can be anything from Chaotic to simply worshipping a different God.

Commissars are simply political officers - all armies have them, even if they aren't all quite as strict. You can possibly even say they are Sergeant Majors, who are renowned for being extremely uptight and punishing - even to their own officers if they think he's failed his duty.

Techpriests - rogues/techies or possibly even Squats (heresy!).

Sanctioned Psykers - non-Sanctioned Psykers

etc etc etc...

Why not? A load of them did for Chaos.

Besides, like I said you could just have them as a non-Adeptus Engineer or a Squat Mercenary.
