Default Just a quick question..

If i decide to play as imperial guard, just for the sake of fluff could i be rebel IG, but not suffer any penalties? Basicly what i mean is i could fight my friends IG with my rebel IG.

Not a problem... if you want to model strangely, but use standard rules, it's fine... I remember seeing one guy who had Orks in pristene dress uniform, and was using them as standard Guard.

Yes, a rebel guard army would be quite cool.

One themed on the rebels from Starwars would be even cooler.

Just don't do a Catachan rebel army... seen that, and it just didn't work.

I saw a rebel armored company, too. I'll try to find the link...

As far as gaming goes, its perfectly acceptable.

Modeling, well, yes, but no defilers, no mutants, you know, the icky stuff. You can operate a normal IG army with teh normal IG codex, and not use any special rules.

Just avoid anything blatantly Imperial (eg: Preachers and Commissars) and you can do it no problem.

I think as long as you follow a specific codex nobody can complain. dont mix and match. my bud was telling me about making a Lost and Damned army using that list with guard figs, so why not use other figs for a guard list right? traitors, pirates, mercenaries, PDF, whatever just follow the codex and no-one will mind whatever background your army has (they are planetary colonists cut off from imperium, forced to develop their own militia = some pretty good varying doctrine ideas) just imagine stuff up man thats why we play.
