Very Wrong.
Those things are about the size of Guardsmen, and are not cheap to manufacture (fluffwise of course). Give up hope.

No kidding. The mental image of the model is just...wrong. Way wrong. Event hinnking of conversions the way the claws look on a marine makes them look ape armed. Could you imagine a guardsman trying to lug those things around?

Two of them could use it as a heavy weapon

One of these days i'm going to do a comic strip based on some of this. I just have this image of two guardsman trying to jam this contraption at a marine while one grumbles aobut why they didn't just get issued a couple of power swords.

+++My guess is the next guard units to be released will be plastic versions of all the metal infantry models. There was a rumour a while back about plastic Valhallans and Steel Legion+++

+++I'd guess not many until the new codex is released (which will be two or three years at least). The guard are a pretty well rounded army atm, unlike the Tau who need waaay more options in the army list . If the Guard get anything it'll most likely be new versions of existing models+++
