Imperial Guard: Rebasing Project (Part 16 - Platoon Squad 7)

Grind, grind, grind.

Ever more units to rebase.

I almost forgot how big this army was.

You may notice that this unit departs from the normal grey uniforms of the rest of my force. Also that they are a (comparatively) modern Catachan unit as opposed to my normal vintage troops.

There's a good reason for both of these things.

For a couple of Codex editions the rules supported the inclusion of prisoners into the Guard as Penal troops paying off their debt to the Emperor.

So I went all "Con-Air" and produced these guys for a laugh.

The rules no longer support that option, but I like the unit so I'm keeping it as-is.
