I feel a story coming on.
These men are the 957th Rifle company of the territories of Mala and the last line of defense on the southern front. They hold the line with only cold steel and bravery against the war beast of the treacherous Domino republic.
They are the last line of defense and will hold the line against all odds and to the last man they will fight.
"For the people and for the princess!" -957th Rifle company battle cry
this looks amazing... and now im inspired to do some more writing... damn i was taking a break
'The grand imperial army of Dune'-sounds good.
Thanks for the comment
Luckily there are plenty of good alternatives for guard. If you don't mind having a non GW event legal army then historicals are a good way to go. The recent plastic napolionics are very tempting. At about $25 for 50 infantry you can't go wrong. Add a few special weapons and other bitz and they should look pretty good ( I'll be modelling green stuff gas masks onto mine).
If you just want gasmask heads a lot of eople have been using a company called pig iron productions. this would be a lot cheaper ( but not tournament leagal-if you care about that).
