I found old gallery of Chimeras – check them out! 😀  On my old hard drive I found a pack of old photos with Astra Militarum vehicles. I really like Chimeras – simple design, a lot of modifications and variants. Kilka z nich możecie obejrzeć w tym właśnie poście. Enjoy and let me know which[…]

Interesting figure to paint this one but he turned out fairly well in the end.  Slightly restricted in terms of colour at the moment as I had a massive clean out of my dried up and useless paints, and am down to just a single usable brush. St…

WIP – Imperial Guard

Posted on November 3rd, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Started my next army project this week Adeptus Militarum or as they should be called Imperial Guard.  Was inspired by my copy of the Guard index and a re-reading of several Ciaphus Cain and Gaunts Ghosts novels.

Warhammer Community – The Regimental Standard

New post on The Regimental Standard

The Complete Guide to Conscripts

by The Warhammer Community Team

Attention, Guardsman! This is a special, officers-only edition of the Regimental Standard. In place of your required weekly reading, you are advised to field strip your lasgun while imagining potentially edifying publications you could be reading*.
RestrictedReading-Start1kAttention, Officer! Your regiment’s request for reinforcements has been granted. Due to recent casualties in war zones across the galaxy, trained troops are presently unavailable and thus you have been provided with Conscripts in their place.

Morale

Within the heart of every Guardsman is a lion, and the same is true of Conscripts – it just requires a little more coaxing. We recommend giving an inspiring speech before battle in a loud, clear voice. If the speech fails, simply repeat it, escalating in volume until the Conscripts seem duly inspired. If this still does not succeed, Commissars are specially trained to provide battlefield encouragement and should be able to make an Imperial hero out of even the most lily-livered of troops.
ConscriptsFig1se

Discipline

Unfortunately, bravery does not necessarily beget great tactical genius, and Conscripts are rarely recruited for their natural aptitude**. As such, we recommend not issuing any commands more complex than “advance” and “fire at will” – complicated manoeuvres can prove distressing to them in the heat of battle.
ConscriptsFig2ts

Organisation

Conscripts are to be fielded in units of between 20 and 30 soldiers. In units of fewer than 20, Conscripts tend to panic quickly and feel isolated, while in larger formations, troopers towards the middle of the squad become idle, believing (falsely) that having several comrades between them and the enemy/their Commissar is a guarantee of safety.
ConscriptsFig3tb

Tactics

When fielding Conscripts, the key is to keep all sentimentality from your mind. To be blunt, the construction and maintenance of a Leman Russ Battle Tank is a laborious process involving the combined efforts of the Adeptus Mechanicus and Departmento Munitorum. The recruiting of a Conscript involves putting a lasgun in the hands of a citizen and pointing them in the direction of the enemy. Be mindful of how your superiors will see the loss of one to preserve the other. Remember that rank is no shield from the gaze of the Emperor or His servants.
ConscriptsFig4g
RestrictedReading-End2je
We hope you enjoyed this opportunity for reflection, Guardsman! While you may leave this Regimental Standard less informed that you would normally expect, remember – knowledge is to be feared!
Thought for the Day: “The Emperor asks only that you hate.”

* Some potential titles include:– The Don’ts and Don’ts of Dealing with Mutants– The Imperial Cult and the Art of Chainsword Maintenance– Never Shake Hands With an Electro-Priest, And Other Advice For Fighting With The Adeptus Mechanicus** For more information on recruitment criteria, please consult Uplifting Pamphlet 3017//D: Brave Heart, White Shield: A Four Item Checklist For Probitors
