Join the ranks of brave men and women inducted into the God-Emperor’s armies, trained to fight and sent off to far flung stars and systems to hold the line against the coming night.

They are the thin line that protects the Imperium from complete and utter destruction. They are the Imperial Guard.

Hello everyone!

ShaneHM here reporting on my shiny new army with battle report to go along with it.  For those that don’t know me, I ran the 40k league at Game Empire: San Diego for almost 7 years.  I play in tournaments once or twice a year (and tend to do well), but I usually prefer a more leisurely pace to my competitive fun.  Enough about me though!

After playing two games of 6th edition it became apparent that my Ork Green Tide army just wasn’t as good in the new edition.  I had been slowly converting my Imperial Guard over to Chaos and decided it was time to fully turn their backs from The Emperor’s light.  I sold off anything that was painted loyalist colors and used the money to buy some of those sexy Forge World Traitor Guard models.

While going through this process, I decided that I wanted to try out the new psychic powers.  After drawing up list after list, I put together this army that is pretty off the wall and incredibly fun to play.  It’s not the most competitive, but this is what I’ve been enjoying most so far in 6th edition 40k.  To add some flavor and killing power, I’m using Grey Knights as a base with Imperial Guard allies (blasphemy, I know, but Chaos loves blasphemy!).  I’m only using Inquisitors and Henchmen from the GK book, so you can’t cry cheese too loudy.  These two armies have the cheapest Psykers, so I maxed out on HQs.  On with the list:

If you haven’t read the first two installments of this article you might want to start there.

 

I have gone ahead and converted a Ellyrian Reaver into a Centigor.  Since, I am not very artsy I am quite happy with the result.  I even think it is a better representation of the what I believe a Centigor should look like than the actual models.   Below I will give you the step by step instructions that I used followed by a gallery of photos.

If you have not read the rest of this diary you might want to start at the beginning.  When I started building my 16000 point army I knew there would be some challenges. The most obvious challenge is money. I have been looking for ways to curb the cost of this monster for some time now. One of these ideas is to use proxy models when ever I get the chance. I will only do this for the models beyond that of a standard game (3000 points).

Looking at my army I have a need for about two hundred Centigors. Games Workshop charges about 12.00 a piece. That is just way too much money. I guess that leaves me with two options. One is to sculpt them all myself, or make a master mold. The other seems to be converting them. Both the options will take a considerable amount of time and both seem daunting.

About two years ago I started looking for a cost efficient model to convert. I was at a loss and had given up. Then GW came out with the Island of Blood starter set. It contains Elyrian Reavers. A very inexpensive model. You can get 5 on eBay for like 5 dollars shipped. Yes, I had decided it was time to start converting.

Now, that I had chosen the base model for my Centigors, I needed the rest of the pieces parts. You can get everything you need out of the Gors box set. Or if you are cheap, like me, you can find everything on eBay to make five Centigors for under 10.00. Yep, that’s right five 12.00 figs for only 10.00.

Next time around I will either post my how to make the Centigor from a a reaver or I will post some pics of the one I have finished. I am still deciding if this should be a video, written instructions, or both.
