What self respecting Imperial Guard army would be complete without at least one squad of Conscripts? I plan to run Commissar Yarrick quite often and conscripts are a nice unit to use as bodyguards for him. On those rare occasions when I don't need conscripts, having a bunch of spare riflemen kicking about is always useful for fleshing out command squads when you don't have the need or the points for weapon upgrades.
I batch painted this lot over the course of three or 4 evenings and I don't think I have a single Guardsman left unpainted in my entire collection now, not even in my bits box. I must have about 150 infantry all painted from the humble riflemen to Vox operators to heavy weapon bases.
I am trying to get all of my cityscape buildings finished this week so I will post up some pictures when they are done.
Only three more sleeps until 7th edition, well two if you are downloading the Epub at mid-night on Friday.
