Default Movie Guard?

heard of movie marines? well heres an IG version.
basically, its a squad of specialists, not dissimilar to the Last Chancers, but instead of being convicts, these men are the elite of the elite.

special rules:
expert gunners:
lasguns are assault 2
all men have frag and krak 'nades

incredible survival:
such is their ability to sense danger, their saves are invulnerable.

The Sarge:
a professional, loud, inspiring, and nigh-unkillable, this paragon of combat keeps the men on their toes.
ws bs s t w i a ld sv

4 4 3 3 2 4 3 10 4+

equipment: mastercrafted plasma pistol, Power Sword.
as long as the Sarge is alive, all his men automatically pass ld/morale checks.

The Heavy Weapons Guy:
usually with a nickname like "Animal" or "OX" or suchlike, this brawny individual exhibits an incredible infatuation with heavy arms
ws bs s t w i a ld sv

3 4 4 4 1 4 2 8 4+

Equipment: Heavy Bolter
Brawn: can move and fire heavy bolter
heavy bolters fire large explosive shells rapidly, it is RENDING.

The Sniper:
usually the lone, silent type, the enemy never sees its death approaching.
ws bs s t w i a ld sv

3 4 3 3 1 4 2 8 4+

Equipment: Sniper Rifle
Crack Shot: he may choose which model to target. normal targeting rules don't apply. also, he may reroll failed to wounds. on a 6 to wound, the shot ignores all saves. enemies must roll to see the sniper using night fight rules.

The New Guy:
fresh to the field of combat, he somehow manages to miraculously survive.
ws bs s t w i a ld sv

3 4 3 3 1 4 2 8 4+
Equipment: lasgun
lucky: whenever the new guy is killed, place him on his side. at the beginning of the next turn, roll a d6. on a 5+ return him to play with one wound.

The Hero:
somehow, this guy can do it all.
ws bs s t w i a ld sv

4 4 4 4 2 4 3 8 4+

Equipment: Chainsword, lasgun, boltpistol.
the hero doesn't say die: if killed, he does not expire until next turn. on that turn roll a d6, if a 6 is rolled, he stays alive.
heroics: if a 6 is rolled to hit (CC or shooting) it counts as rending.

Radioman:
hes a dude...with a radio. always calling for backup that only shows right when its most dramatic. either that, or he dies first stranding the squad without comms. c'est la vie.
ws bs s t w i a ld sv

3 4 3 3 1 4 2 8 4+

equipment: lasun, comm.
before the game begins, roll a d6. on 1-3 he will be the first model removed by enemy fire, all guys gain furious charge as they desperately fight for their lives. on a 4-6 you may reroll any reserves rolls made during the game.

The guy who dramitically dies:
ws bs s t w i a ld sv

3 4 3 3 1 4 2 8 4+
Equipment: lasgun, letter to family.
Inspiring bullet-shield: whenever a guy dies, you may instead remove this guy. the guy whose life he saves doubles his initiative and attacks for the rest of the game.

The No-Name grunts:
just about what you expect. what? you got a problem with that?
ws bs s t w i a ld sv

3 4 3 3 1 4 2 8 4+

equipment: lasguns

comments, improvements, you know the drill.

Hmm....sounds like a sergeant with honorifica (ok, LD10 instead of 9, but still), an ogryn with a suspensor-HB looted off a dead deathwatch marine, an assassin (seriously, you made an "elite" guardsman as good as an assassin??!?), a couple guys with variations of the "yarick effect"...oh, and the radio guy should be able to either call in artillery (but only on himself, with no scatter!) or call in some valkyries.

Provocativly dressed woman.
Ws Bs s t w i a ld sv
3 4 3 3 1 3 2 8 5+

wargear: lasgun

whenever the provocativly dressed woman comes under fire roll a dice. on a 2+ her blause becomes ripped for some stupid reason revealing her sexy lingerie. no explanation is given to my she is wearing a delicate red laced bra while on a spec ops mission. all (male) units within line of sight benefit from the 'feel no pain' special rule and their initiative is reduced to 0.
