Default Female Guardsmen

I heard tell that you can get female guardsmen from direct, but I looked and I couldn't find any. Seeing as the Guard is a equal opportunities employer I thought that GW made a couple of female models, but try as I might I can't find them. Does anyone here know where to find them, or would you have to convert them? and if the answer is the latter, what would be the best way to do it? ??? Please help!

I don't know of many female IG models, but here are a few suggestions:

1. The Last Chancers - contains 2 females, one with a rocket launcher, one with a lasgun.
2. I believe that there was a female Commissar at Games Day a few years back. Might be hard to get hold of now though.
3. Necromunda Escher gangers - not really suitable for most guard armies as they will look kind of out of place, but with a little trimming they work well with Catachans.

in the 'classic' range at the online store you can get the two girls from schaeffer's squad - 'rocket girl' and 'war woman' (or something like that) - plus there's eschers from necromunda and a tanith lady. i think thats about it. i guess if you are feeling ambitious you could chop heads off of some witch huntress types and green stuff some girlie bits onto guard uniforms. maybe a little 'hello kitty' sticker on the backback would help too. kidding. kidding.

I beleive that there was also a female model in the old metal catachan range. She looked just like Vasquez from Aliens.

Or if you wanted to take a long shot you could give SoBs hellguns and call them STs

That would be unbelievably difficult to convert though. SoBs are one piece metal models, generally with their weapons held close in to their body. Plus, they're wearing power armour rather than carapace.

You're best off using the Esthar Gangers from Necromunda.
