Default Basing an army on a theme (own or existing army)

Of course, its one of the most customisable armies ever, except it takes a while to paint :'(

Guard are very easy to customise... we have at least eight model ranges!

Guard are next to the tyranids one of the most customizable armies in 40k, both model wise and rules wise. The doctrine system is great, it has endless possabilities for a cool guard army. The model ranges are huge as wargamer already said. IMO tau are hardly customizable, there is only 1 standard army, no means of making it more personal.

Getting sick of all the 40konline server troubles :P

Imperial Guard mech force: 1500 pts (work in progress)
Imperial Guard Infantry: 1000 pts
Tau: 1500 pts
Necrons: 2000 Pts

Themed armies are just a click away my friend

Man, this origami dream is beautiful, but those wings will never leave the ground without a feather and a lottery ticket.
