the army isnt the underdog, the individual guardsmen are the underdogs. Sure they tend to win, but (at least if the table reflects fluff) the casualties are enormous.
The underdog is the lone guardsmen standing in a shitty foxhole as artillery (sometimes his own) rains down on his head and all manner of space monsters or chaos people try to kill him.

The best Guardsmen come from Catachan. Everyone knows that!

>> No.17937198

Personally, I fucking LOVE my cadians. But they do need to be gothick-ed up a bit more. Current IG just feel a tiny bit too 'un-40k' for my liking, but that might just be because all the 40k-madness units like ogryns, priests, and the like are crap.

Take a liberal assortment of mixed IG and infantry torsos, keeping enough in common to imply a uniformity once existed before scavenging happened. Mixing Catachans and Cadians is the simplest route, but throwing in a few Necromunda bits and 3rd party coats can go a long way.

So, I'm stuck with a valkyrie box. I bought it for some reason. You know, that kind of moment where every neurons of your brain derp in perfect synchro, as in:
"Hey, I hate assembling/painting vehicles because they are so big and flat, but maybe if I take the biggest and flattest thing around, it will break a threshold and become cool again!"

So, I'm stuck with that valkyrie (don't want to sell it because I'm lazy). And, to defeat the boredom and make it awesome, I'm thinking of a nose-art. Any advice about that (I'm new to free-hand)?
