Imperial Guard Apocalypse Army – 4500+ Points

I have recently been working on expanding my Imperial Guard army list using a range of unpainted miniatures out of my bits box. I’ve fleshed out my 2000pt army to over 4500pts and have included a range of cool old miniatures that I acquired 8 years ago or so from a bloke I went to Uni with. He was relocating to Sydney and when he found out I played Games Workshop he dropped off a huge armload of his old miniatures. These miniatures ranged from original Rouge Trader multi part Space Marines to the Adeptus Titanicus board game.

I love these miniatures which date from the dawn of 40k and help give my army a real unique flavour, whilst also helping me boost it up to a sizable Apocalypse force.  With these additions I can now field over 200 men, spread out between the following.

4 platoons

2 Storm Trooper Squads

Ogryns

Snipers

Rough Riders

16 Sentinels

Demolisher

Chimera

Veteran Squad

I am turning these original Space Marines into a Platoon of Imperial Guard Veteran’s equipped as grenadiers. They will be armed to the teeth with heavy flamers, flamers and meltaguns.

Adeptus Titanicus Sentinels

This collection of Adeptus Titanicus miniatures will be converted into a full company of Scout Sentinals, They will be split up into 5 or so squads with different weapons in each squad, hopefully giving me a wide range of tactical options and a company of 16 sentinels!

The Army is also going to include a few miniatures from the old Space Hulk board game, some early Ogryn models, some Necromunda gangers and more.  Check out the gallery below to see out the full army broken down into squads and stay tuned for more updates as I work at converting, painting and playing with this new expanded army.
