Default Praetorian Imperial Guard

I've been working on the latest version of my Praetorian IG for a while now, other things slowly taking shape (besides more Infantry & Heavy Weapons) include converted Grenadiers modelled as Life Guards, Roughriders of various types, more Officers, a rather charactful Kill Team oh and tanks.

Command HQ


Standard Bearer Conversion



Infantry Platoon


Heavy Weapons Squads


Lascannon Conversion


Heavy Bolter (Gatling Gun) Conversion


Autocannon Conversion

TY guys, I must admit I'm quite pleased with how the armies working out (though I wish I was a faster painter! lol) have another Infantry Platoon on the way at the moment which I hope to follow up with my first squad of Grenadiers, they're undercoated at the moment having finished the conversions a little while ago, looking forward to getting them painted.

Thats the tip of the iceberg, between what you see there, my old army and what I have still untouched by me I can muster about 8000pts of Praetorians

They come from two of the limited edition box's, with about half of the rest purchased back when they were still in blisters in the shops, the rest I've picked up on ebay over a few years.

Welcome the the boards! Great job, and a fellow Praetorian my army looks like crap next to yours but none the less welcome. I give you 9 out of ten I love the conversion work and the faces. I wish you painted my Praetorians....
