As a throwback to the old rogue trader days…

Just for giggles, has anyone used the modern Cadian plasics to assemble a rogue trader style imperial guard assault squad? You know the kind, regular troopers with two laspistols or laspistol and chainsword, couple troopers with plasma guns..

I know they would suck in the game, but come on. Seems like fun.

I still have two squads of the old plastic bobbleheads converted with the old plastic beakie space marines. After a couple of decades, they seen battle again in the apocalypse rules. Although they died to the last man, they held up and inflicted enough damage to a large group of nurgle termies, a subsequent charge of the equally venerable roughriders wiped out the remnants.
Most of my old figures have formed veteran squads and assault squads among the newer models. A few have joined platoon command squads.
For regular games the veterans and assault squads of meltas and plasma are the norm.
But, mine are the Cadian 7th Cav…Nobody walks. The jumppack troops just don't seem to fit. Nor heavy weapon teams as tanks, chimeras, and sentinals have that covered. wink
But, yes they are still fun! Even more fun with rough riders following them in to smash opposing assault squads who are used to the substandard guard hand to hand prowess! evil grin

I plan do do one at some point using Cadian bodies with British Colonial heads. All with Las pistols & chainswords!

Tally Ho!

jump packs would seem to make sense as veterans or storm troopers of a drop troop regiment. otherwise, they would be a bit out of place in a standard ground-deployed IG army.
