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.

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

Olivia Headhunter – Oldhammer special

Posted on August 15th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Results over manners. That could be the definition of Olivia’s state of mind and practical way of handling missions. Not that any of her employers have had anything to say about it so far.
Olivia is a special character, not only because she’s one of the most fearsome female imperial guard models you’ve seen in a while but because she was the gift model at this year’s BOYL.

Assorted Stuff: Immortan Drumpf and Imperial Guard

Posted on August 8th, 2017 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Finished up a few things over the last week or so…

Immortan Drumpf from HasslefreeMiniatures. If you remember waaaaaaay back in February when I explained the background to our MDRG campaign… I mentioned ultra-right-wing leaders running on xenophobic, populist platforms…? Well… this is HE. And He survived… and is now the leader of an army of nasty killer robots and gun-toting goons.
A few weeks back I mentioned reorganizing my Guaiacan Commandoes? I realized I had just about enough for a Battle Forged BRIGADE of Imperial Guardsmen… I just needed a few more Fast Attack elements. 
I’ve had a sentinel squadron, sitting, unassembled, on the shelf for some time. I had been thinking not too long ago about converting the pilots to look like Tallarn Desert Raiders and loading up the sentinels with spare cans of Promethium and ammo and bags and stuff – so they’d look reminiscent of WW2 SAS desert raider jeeps. But I realized the ones I have had the camo tops that the new ones don’t, and that the new ones come with weapons that would probably be more appropriate for desert raiders (las canons, etc. – longer range weapons that the Heavy Flamer and Multi-Laser options that come with the kits I have). 
So I decided to build them up as Jungle Fighter Sentinels for my Guaiacan Commandoes.

But first, I also painted up a few more old school metal ratling snipers for the force…

Five new Ratling snipers from Games Workshop.

I now have a squad of TEN of them!

The first of the three new sentinels I’m working on.

Same model different angle. I did still try to add some extra kit to the new sentinels.

More of the same.

Close up – hoping you might be able to see the driver in there.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

More of the RPGaDay questions… or not… I don’t know… They’re not getting as much of a response here as they are on my facebook group, so…
