Default Imperial guard help?

I was thinking after i finish my Crimsonfists, I was gonna start an Imperial guard Army... but i'm horrible at painting faces and flesh, so this is kind of stearing me away from Imperial guard. Does anyone have any suggestions on how i can avoid this? also whats the maximum number of armoured vehicles i could incoperate into a Imperial guard army without it being Armoured company? I want an IG army mostly becaus eof the Lemun russ, the just look so awsome, godly even. ;D

Faces- Helmets masks
Hands- Gloves
Arms- Body painting (warpaint)

Vechiles...

3 heavy support vechiles, 9 seninels in 3 fast attack, 3 more sentienls in command squads (so essentially 6 more if two HQ's are taken), Chimeras for every squad (6 troops, 3 elites, 2 HQ)... thats about it i think. unless you want a heelhound as fast attack.

Where would i get all thoughs masks from I was looking at the Forgeworld stuff, but it would start to get Expensive.

I could do steel legion?, but thats also rediculously expensive.

You could try painting them as guardsmen of African descent. Browns are easier to do than pale flesh, IMO. Or you could see it a a learning experience.

The Eldar Rule:

"If any model with the special rule Eldar! is on the battlefield the player may instantly declare victory and arrogantly storm out of the room. They may also claim any models, cash or cookies that are in the room."

I want to put to the record that I wholeheartedly support this rule and think GW should adopt it whenever they redo the Eldar codex. Cash and cookies are always good, and arrogantly storming out is an underrated pasttime

You could paint the face black and then apply streaks of red and orange to make a camoflauge look. This techniques is pretty easy to master as it usually requires but one or two streaks.

Darker skin is easier to paint than white skin. Dark flesh base and bry brush bestial borwn over it.... great look and it works well, it how i do my dark skinned catachans. But for masks mould them out of green stuff

you cant get chimeras for every troop choice since infantry platoons can't have chimeras, and you need one infantry platoon for every armoured fist. So you'd have three chimeras for troops(but you'll need 3 platoons aswell), 3 for your elites, you can get 9 sentinels (or 3 hellhounds) as fast attack and 3 leman russes as heavy support, then two more for each command squad, and 3 sentinels for each command squad. so thats 26 vehicles or 14 if you dont count sentinels. if you choose an armoured company than every guard infantry unit you ahve has to take one.

Not Armoured comapny but mechanised.
So each infantry squad has to have one.
That makes 35 chimeras alone on troop choices if you take a full regiment of troops

oh sorry miss read his post. so thats 6 chimeras in a full platoon, at 6 platoons thats 36 chimeras, then 2 for the command squads, 3 for the elite, 3 tanks for heavy support, , 9 sentinels for fast attack, then we get four support squads and a sentinel squad for each command making another 14 vehicles. so in total we have 49 chimeras 3 tanks and 15 sentinels for a total of 67 vheicles. if you dont count sentinels(hardly an armoured vehicle is it) you have 51 chimeras, 3 tanks, 3 hell hounds. for a total of 57 vehicles.
