Default What if.........

Hello

Please note that i have only included imperial guard regiments that already have metal models which are either on the online store or under classics and collectors.

All opinions and replies are welcome.

Thanks

well death korps of krieg would be my choice, but thats un-fair to people who dont like the ww1 look. so im going to have to say valhallan. valhallans are the second most 'generic' regiment after cadians. you can do anything short of desert fighters with valhallans. so now we would have plastic cadians, catachan and valhallans. with those sprues you could do just about anything really.

I would have to go for the Tanith.They would be the most convertable after all.

no, they would have to have separate cloaks like SM scouts with sniper rifles, and it doesn't look nearly as good as the metal ones where the cloak is attached to the body.

I wouldn't mind a steel legion or a Krieg plastic guard army. Would look pretty awesome.

Tough choice, I'd have to say the ice Warrirors or Steel Legion. Both are pretty generic trench coat wearing guard. It's just weither you have helmets and rebreathers or fur caps really. To be honest I'd say the Steel Legion is more generic than the Ice Warriors and would make a good basis for other armies.

PS: Scout capes are not seperate. They are attached to the torsos.

Steel Legion in plastic FTW!
Btw, forgeworld is throwing together plastic Death Korps, as we speak. ^^
(El expensive, though.)

How about this?

Make a Steel legion plastic set with simply long trench coats.
Make a conversion upgrade kit with fur hats and baggage laden torsos to convert them to Valhallans?

That would make everybody happy.

Even for the Krieg wanters, add a sprue with spiked helmets and backpacks with gas tanks.

I have planned for a while to someday GS some cadian sprues to Ice Warriors, then cast that, and produce my own sprues... oh well...
