Default Close Quarters Guard army (rather Primitive)

I was thinking about expanding my Guard army based around their existing fluff (i.e. extending it into another army yet keeping it along the same lines and sharing an element of background with my existing Guard).

My existing Guard have conscripts that are drawn from a primitive warrior culture that aren't that intelligent (they can just about use lasguns!) and I was thinking why not make an army of them. I'll be using the following doctrines:
* Conscripts
* Priest
* Rough Riders
* Warrior Warriors
* Hardened Warriors

So what do you guys think?

it works but independant commisars would be good fluff wise (i think anyhoo) instaed of priests dependant on how evil you see the imperium

I forget which White Dwarf its in, like 301 or 302, but you might consider using Abhuman Doctrines, I think a few of them allow for some Feral Type warriors.

Warrior warriors? or warrior weapons?


does harden warrior mean hardened fighters?

I didn't have my codex with me so your probably right there AfterCresent with the names. It fits more with the fluff the "primals" to have priests then commissars and could prove quite nasty in the process.

Indeed. Nice little list there... for tactics, may I recommend you watch Enemy at The Gates, particularly the first Russian assault.

Sounds very fun indeed.

Couple ideas here Constripts yes tons of them and can b used to great effect i also recomend iron disipline and could fit your fluff very nicely barbaric Ig that would rather die than surrender wow sounds like orks almost.

I would like to see 1 model as the sole leader of this horde perhaps something looking like a Khrone aspring champ but slightly weaker.

Powerfists would make quite a bit of difference in this army aswell nothing to fancy just something like.

HAH you thought gaunts where bad look at this *seeing a good 150 conscripts running right wards som1*
