And so it begins!

6th edition have been here for some time now and i been looking a bit at it from time to time. Even tho i have planned to continue with my Tomb kings after i finished painting my Malifaux crew, it seems that the urge to continue expanding my imperial guard even more is bigger. That's right ladies and gentlemen, Ras is back!

As we all know 6th edition is out with new rules and a new meta and i intend to make the best out of the new changes. I will expand the army with cadian regiments, tanks and artillery as i had planned to do, but with a twist.

I will be adding Leman Russ's to my army, in fact i plan to add 3 of them at 1850 along with Pask as upgrade. I also intend on adding lots and lots of conscripts! At the present time i will not include any chimeras but that might change later. I made a skeleton list with the units i want to include at the present time. The list still needs some tweaking but i feel like i got the core in it.

The list  

CCS(6): 4xSniper riffles, master of Ordinance 100
PCS(5): Chenkov, 4xFlamer 100
Infantry squad(10): flamer, autocannon 65
Infantry squad(10): flamer, autocannon 65
Heavy weapons squad(3): 3xMissile launcher 90
Conscrips(40): 160
Stormtroopers(5): 2xMeltas 105
Fast Attack
Vendetta Gunship(1): 3xLascannons 130
Vendetta Gunship(1): 3xLascannons 130
Leman Russ squadron(2): 2xBattletank, lascannon, 2xheavy bolters, heavy stubber 390
Manticore(1): heavy bolter, heavy stubber 170
Total points 1505

Since 6th came out i bought this so far for the army(another Leman Russ is on the way and next month i will be adding more conscripts).

I am also working on my first cadian shock trooper so i can get the color scheme and painting standard  as i want it, but more on that in another post.

As always if you have any ideas and/or suggestions to improve the army please let me know.

Best wishes Ras
