Just got hold of my copy of the new Codex:Imperial guard
I've now successfully converted my Roster to 5th Edition, but theres still some things bugging me
Firstly i've had to remove my Commissar from my command squad and the closest i can get to keeping him there is by making him a Commissar Lord and attaching him to the command squad. which is fine, but it puts all my eggs in one basket. but hey, all in the name of fluff :D
Characters, i want to choose some characters to either purchase, or scratchbuild (most likely second option) and add into the ranks of the lucky 88th. Whilst ive never really been fond of named characters outside of playing themed games (armageddon = yarrick and ghazgkull) etc
I can see the best way to add diversity into an army now is to drop in these characters like seasoning, to boost squads and platoons for specific missions.
At the moment i'm leaning towards Gunnery sergeant Harker, he adds a heavy bolter to a veterans squad, and being "catachan" he allows the veteran unit to move through cover more easily - quite befitting a cityfighting veterans squad.
as for others, i'm at a loss.
i'd like to hear others views on the new codex, plus the characters etc.
