Default arkadia/arcadia

I heard about the planet Arcadia/Arkadia when I was reading some second edition rules, of course it was basically saying "the Arcadians got their butts kicked greenskin style" but i thought it would be a good planet for my guard army to be themed from.
does anyone know anything about it? ???

Funny thing I play arcadians ;D

The were the orignial guard regiment in first ed. Here are the mini's

I realize that that paint scheme makes them look like 2nd ed. cadians but if you look closely you will see they differ, note the sarg's las gun that is the orginal IG las gun. I updated the lasguns and stuck catachan arms on them. here is the rest of the army





here a shot of them in action, note the lasguns...that a first ed. lasgun, I would say start your search for fluff in the Compenduim, it has the rules for IG in there.

Those look like Praetorian figures. Are they? If not could we get a close-up of the lasguns? I can't tell the difference :-[

It is part of the first edition rules, the other part Rouge Trader. In the compenduim had the rules of IG, Army list and some fluff. It's been a long time since I have seen the compenduim (I lost mine about 7 years ago), but if you can find one you should find some more info on Arcadia. Off hand I would say docrines would be: Ogryns, Heavy Weapon Platoons, Tech Engineers, Conscripts and Independant Commisars, those were the avialble units back then. But then again it was a long time ago, I could have forgotten some
