Default Skitarii

Hey guys, i recently bought a box of cadians for my b'day and realised i really didn't need them, after a few days of thinking of how to get rid of them i got an idea, why not knae something from them (duh) i was thinking of making a small elite skitarii legion, of about 25-40 men all completely beefed up and armed to the teeth with cool weapons, nay suggestions/comment?

40 men? You could make a nice Combat Patrol with that and still have them pretty tooled up and converted. If you maxed out on upgrades, you can easily pack all you need in a small army too...but you'd have to deck your entire army out with ludicrous amounts of upgrades. Most notable would be Sharpshooters (targetting systems/highly accurate guns), Bionic Enhancements (6+ Invulnerable save and carapace armour) and take Tech-Priests (duh) and possibly Ogryns if you realllllly wanted to make Praetorian Servitors that way (buying some Ogres and meching them up). What you do is all up to you...but those I'd see as the definite Skitarii choices.

An Infantry Platoon, an Armoured Fist squad, your Command Platoon gives you the 40 men you're after...add in your Tech-Priests and Praetorian Servitors and you've got a nicely sized army (with loads and loads of upgrades) to play with. That force, roughly, in my head would be well over 1000pts, which is terribly small but...well, you said blinged out so blinged out is what you've got

Definitely. I've consider Skitarii before...as with Death Korps. If they bring either out in plastic form, I'll be collecting them...as conversion/resin is either too hard or expensive an option to me. The skill required to convert some good Adeptus Mechanicus troopers is a good reason to actually learn how, but I don't have the ambition or drive to do it right now. If you do, then that's wonderful...and just look up a few tips and tricks to get the right extra parts and you'll be fine. Battlefield effectiveness is secondary to awesome models.
