Default Cadian 8th. The 3rd Guard Army.

So having traded off my marines to chadmac for his guard, I got to work writing up a list. Had some problems to begin with, running out points... then I got the hang of it and finished up with this.

HQ
Company Command
-Creed
-Kell
-Auto Cannon
255

ELITES
6x Ogryn
-Chimera
-Extra Armor
-Hull Heavy Flamer
320

TROOPS
Platoon Command
-3x Flamer
-Heavy Flamer
-Melta Bombs
-Power Weapon
80

Infantry Squad
-Auto Cannon
60

Infantry Squad
-Auto Cannon
60

Infantry Squad
-Lascannon
70

Infantry Squad
-Melta Gun
-Melta Bomb
-Power Weapon
-Krak Grenades
Commissar
-Power Weapon
130

Infantry Squad
-Melta Gun
-Melta Bomb
-Krak Grenades
-Power Weapon
85

Veterans
-3x Melta Gun
-Demolition Team
Chimera
185

FAST ATTACK
Vendetta
-Heavy Bolters
140

HEAVY SUPPORT
Leman Russ Demolisher
165

Leman Russ Battle Tank
150

Hydra Flak Tank
75

TOTAL: 1750.

I am looking for a comp 2.5/5 army. And I think this achieves it.


As for the army itself, I still need to find a creed and kell model and 6 ogryn as well as a basilisk to use for a hydra conversion. Aside from that I own all of it + 6 sentinels, a few more men and a few more russ'.

Now then, some Pics!

The sorting table, with the vendetta in peices ready to be stripped and most of my extra stuff.


Chimera and Russ for stripping


The Demolisher with commissar.



The Friuts of stripping. All the minis in the box need to go back into the goopy 50/50 solution of metho and simplegreen.



And finally, a test mini. A very easy scheme to paint so that it looks gritty and wartorn. This guy hasnt had his details done yet (face, waterbottle etc) but he will be a secondary objective marker.

Updates! These are off another forum, so ignore the weird connection between parts.

Got my bases sorted out. These ones don't have any extras on them but these guardsmen will get split up as I do more bases to mix in ones without debris and ones with it.

Simple undercoat black, coat calthan brown and drybrush tallarn flesh.
Also note i've started on the second squad.


my 25mm objectives and some new bases to be undercoated.

The whole force currently. 3 more tanks and another 20 men are on the way from trades.


More.

Officer.



More bases.


Objectives (25mm and one 40mm)



[hr]

So total so far.
2 demolishers
30 infantry
1 Chimera
1 Officer
5 25mm Objectives
5 40mm Objectives
And
Commissar

I received yesterday another 10 on sprue troops from a trade and am getting another 10 along with 2 chimeras and a russ from JoD next week.


Onto the actual update and pics.

Complete Chimera.


Commissar Demolisher.




Other Demolisher (with crewman)








More text update!

Tanks were easy to do once I figured out what I wanted. A coat of Knarloc Green and a coat of Denhib stone for the base. Wash with black and mud respectivly than drybrush the base colors liberally. Details in grey and yellow etc.

The Second Demolisher has 2 etchings from the basing kit skirting the back of the turret, and the cannon is from the new kit, cut into to fit on the old turret.

The commissar one was missing the armor plates that form the bulk of the turret behind the cannon, so I improvised with an armor plate from the superheavy kit.


EDIT:

Also just finished a commissar about 10 minutes ago.

Fantastic army! Infantry turned out great, but I really like the tanks cameo the best. Keep it up.

Consider the Commissar tank idea stolen. ;D

Would NEVER have thought to use Baneblade plates instead of sponsons.

Since Sponsons stink now that defensive weapons are S4 or less. It does involve cutting out the sponson mounting bitz to get it flush, and its a bloody tight fit.

The battle tank looks a little plain from the top view. It may just be the top of the regular russ lacks detail with the hatch closed. The infantry look great.

Update time! yay :P.


So I received my package from JoD with 2 chimeras, a russ and some guardsmen in it and also got around 50 guys, 3 commissars, 3 psykers and a chimera, another russ and some bitz.

So minus what is currently soaking for stipping and the models on my desk (around 50) this is the army as it stands.


Guys needing parts

Platoon command 1/2 done.

Another Platoon commander


Ratlings


New Chimera


Also got my creed and kell, so now I have all the minis for my generic base list.

You really have perfected making and painting armies quickly and making them look good to boot.
