More Imperial Guard

A few more Imperial Guardsmen. I started picking up these “Catachans” a few years back to use in a Savage Worlds Sci-fi Campaign – they were all to be members of a rival Mercenary unit the Players were often coming up against called “Morgan’s Marauders”.  In the immediate future they may actually be used as Catachans as I’m planning on running the free intro Only War mission for the kids some time. Who knows what they’ll be used for in the future.

All of the figures pictured in this post are from Games Workshop. They are © and ™ Games Workshop and painted by myslef and posted here entirely without their permission.

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version):

I have about a platoon sized force of these jungle fighters – about half are actually GW Catachans, others are other GW Imperial Guard (from before there were Catachans and Tallarn and Vallalans and Cadians and whatnot…) and a few i-Kore/Void Vasa Commandoes. I decided a week or so ago I should try and finish the force up and decided to break it down into three groups – There are three different poses of metal Catachan Guardsmen with Lasguns, so in each batch I have a few guys in the same pose plus a couple of support weapons. The guys above are one such grouping of same-pose-guys.

And here is a supporting Heavy Flamer and Meltagun

Finally a Catachan sniper and a Ratling sniper.

Coming soon on Tim’s Miniature Wargaming Blog:

A couple very late battle reports from last week and some EPIC distractions!!


  1. Fantastic paintjob, great details!

  2. Well done! These are some superb looking miniatures again.

  3. Very nice figures, you really did an excellent job on the camo.

  4. I miss that SW sci-fi campaign. Phobia: Robots and Major Delusion: Does not believe in lasers were the best hindrances ever.

    1. Did I end it with a TPK or did it just fizzle? We could always revive it!?

      Even if it was a TPK - We have the technology... We can rebuild them... Better... Stronger... Faster than before!

    2. Pretty sure it just fizzled - we started the Realms of Cthulhu campaign right afterward.
