New 40K is out and one of the most intriuging and controversal new rules is that of allied detactments, and whilst I accept that the chances are someone will find a broken combo somewhere, as a non-tournament player I'm excited by the possibilities.
As it happens I happen to have a few Imperial Guard models in my collection (around 45) which are never going to amount to a whole army, but now find themselves in the painting queue and destined to support to Space Marine Army. To start off I've painted a Patrol Command Squad and an old Mordian officer who I've painted black and am going to use as a Lord Commissar. Next up will be a couple of infantry squads to round out the infantry platoon. I've also finished another objective marker which is a little comms array.
