Default Imperial Guard Landspeeders

Hi All
I have an interesting idea, but not sure how I would go about implementing it and whether I could actually make it legal in terms of a GW battle.

I'm an Imperial Guard player, obviously, and have always enjoyed the Imperial Guard tanks etc. However I also love the Space Marine Land Speeders and bikes. So if I wanted to take the Space Marine Landspeeder convert it into a Imperial Guard Landspeeder and perhaps add a few bikes to the squadron do you think I'd be able to take it into battle?

Speed after all is of key importance in warfare.

Ahh well there was a time the ig did have landspeeders...and they were awesome. If it were used as a proxy for a sentinal I would be ok with it...but there goes all your speed though. As for bikes, roughriders rules would be best. I am working that myself to go with my mech ig army.

I think GW should put bikes and other fast equipment options in their new codex if their doing well

I think that using them for sentinals would be fine.

Real men fight in tanks!

Sentinels would be good for the speeders, and bikes are perfect for rough riders. Post pictures when you're done!

You could use it to represent a Space Marine land speeder in apocalypse games. Not sure how you'd get around the open topped issue though.

If you do this, I recommend the classic land speeder model. It seems to be the most suitable version to me and the crew come seperate to the model rather than as part of the seat.
