Default Feudal Imperial Guard army

Anyone ever seen an Imp Guard army based off of a feudal world... Ya know more cc specialised with lotsa rough riders and other medieval elements. Think that just may be my next army and wondering if it's been done before.

I haven't seen this in 40k, but I have seen it done in Necromunda. A friend of mine did a gang of pirates using Empire bits, which loooked good. He has also done a squad of Empire troops using militia bits, so pistols and swords, which he then armoured with those baldricks you get in the Soldiers of the Empire box set.

I think it could be quite effective, visually at least, if you did a Bretonnian army so rough riders/knights, peasants/conscripts. One issue is whether to take Carapace Armour as it seems fitting that a knights armour should be reflected in the statline. Mind you it could be quite expensive as you would need laspistols, so you'd have to trade bits or else buy boxes of troops just for pistols, not a good idea.

well, verwoerd this is all hypothetical. lets not try to crush his/her dreams just yet . using warrior weapons, he could have a pair of cc weapons. he doesnt necessarily need everyone with a las pistol and cc weapon. that would be suicide. 2 pts a model. i would buy a box of catachans and a box of empire or somthing equally odd.
also look at the kanak skull takers in the codex.

Well for pistols you could just use the Empire Flintlocks. As for Ogryns use Orge Leadbelchers as they kind of look the part what with the huge guns which as good for clobbering as shooting. A particularly useful box set would be the Empire Militia box. If you are really serious about this why not come up with a rudimentary list so we can see where you want to go in terms of docrtines and such. I know its just a concept but this would make it a bit more concrete. Empire handgunners are not really great models, so I would stay clear of them Shas'O, after painting an Empire army you learn which models are good or not. The only decent thing about them is that two of the models have detacheable handguns.

I'd love to create a list, but I don't own the imp guard codex yet... Which brings me to another point,. anyone know how soon the new one is so I know if it's worth it to buy 3rd edition or just wait fer 4th?

Uh, The Imperial Guard codex didn't come out all that long ago. Your probably looking at a good number of years before the next revision of it. In other words, best to get the current codex.

Ahh, I see. Thanks man. Another idea I had was to make a Leman Russ/Steam Tank variant. Anyone think it'd look good?

If you are prepared to spend a horrible sum of money on a steam tank, it would not only be unique but also HILARIOUS!

The doctrines I would choose are Rough Riders, Ogryns, Warrior Weapons, Conscripts, and perhaps Preists.
