Default Gue'Vesa

Are there any small packs(less than 20) of imperial guard men? Iwant to make a squad of Guevesas. Are there special sets for Guevesas?

Nope. You have to convert your own or use guardsmen. Cadian shock troops gets you 2 squads of 10 but if you want just one squad maybe try storm troopers. Im not sure that there is a coste effective way of getting 10 gue'vesa. You could perhaps bits order the parts for 10 cadians. That might work.

Look on Bartertown. Ask Guard players. However, I don't see any disadvantage to having 20 Gue'vesa ready.

sigh..... I'm so sick of people who don't read the important topics. if you had done that, you would have seen that there is a PDF download available at the GW site which has the stats for "guevesas". find it yourself.

*Sigh*... I'm sick of cocky people not reading the post and then having a go at another poster needlessly. If you bothered to read, he was asking whether there were dedicated Gue'Vesa models availble, not rules.

As it stands, you have to convert the models. It can be done very well with a box of Cadians and a box of Firewarriors.

Ah, yes. The sleep deprived post. We've all been there.

Anyway, GW will NEVER make an actual boxed set so that you have to buy two boxed sets instead of one.

Actually, they will do deals from time to time.* The 13th Company and the Zombie Pirates come to mind.* If Gue'Vesa end up being an official entry, I wouldn't be too surprised to see a mail-order package of some kind. I normally will order a few inidividual sprues from mail-order when I need something else I can't find locally. You pay a bit of a premium for that, but it is easier if you are only making a few Gue'Vesa.

One thing to consider before investing the time or money in converting some Geu'vesa is that the latest rumours I have heard on the new codex coming out early next year are that we are losing that unit. Admittely it is still just a rumor, but I have heard it from more than one source now. It would be a shame to convert up a whole unit and then not be able to use it in a few months.
