    Default Traitor Chaos Imperial Guard winter-themed army by Awaken Realms

    Hello,

    It’s time for a new project – this time Imperial Guard army with some Chaos flavor. This is however not some rag-tag force of traitors and mutants, but the elite force of veterans and Stormtroopers from an ice-world, hardened in the harsh environment and experienced in many campaigns.

    Take a look at them – and more will soon follow. Click on the image to see image in better resolution.













    How do you like the infantry done in snow scheme?

    The paint is nice, I would clean up the red on the forearms of the Stormtroopers, but Chaos? Huummm. Nope. The models still have their imperial markings and they're not desecrated in any way, the only thing that sez Chaos is the banner. You could just paint up a second "imperial banner" and sell this lot as an army that swings both ways.

    So quick question. I have a 30k mech army I would like you to do. Is there a way to get a price quote?

    Like everyone else has said; brilliantly painted army but not really chaos. the banner alone looks to be the only chaos bit from a glance (and even then it's topped with an Aquila).
    Step forth and be recognized.
    No mercy. No pity. No hope.

    Yes, sure, please visit our website (http://awakenrealms.com/) and send the message with the list of models and ideas for painting - you'll get the response soon!

    And for now...
    It’s time for an update. What a Guard army (loyal or traitor) can be without some tanks?

    And answering the questions, it was meant to be done with minor Chaos incursions, with presence of the Imperial imagery. Not every traitor army is the bunch of possessed madmans. Perhaps this regiment is associated with Alpha Legion, what would justify the presence of both Imperial and Chaos imagery?













    How are the tanks covered in snow and reinforced with sandbags appearing to you?

    Are you sure those are sandbags? Look closer to couch cushions to me. Too uniform in size and distribution of the sand inside them. Plus you have the bags on the Hydra resting on the vehicle's track.
    Loving the paint, and the magnetic extra armor and sponsons are a nice touch.

    Hello,

    It’s time for a final update! Two centerpiece model (a moving fortress of Shadowsword and a warp-spawned Heldrake – a prove of the Regiment’s change of allegiance) and the full armyshot.













    How is this army appearing to you?

    Beautifully painted army. I too just wish it had slightly more chaos imagery.

    I love the Bullgryns (Ogryns?).
