I have been collecting a random assortment of old metal Imperial Guard/ Necromunda models for a while with the intention of creating a scratch company inspired conscript platoon. The term scratch company is used in the 'Gaunt's Ghosts' novel 'Necropolis' to describe guerilla/ militia style fighters made up of depleted PDF squads, gangers and angry hive citizens who have taken up arms in defence of their city/ planet.
As my force is currently fighting on the planet of Vesen, in the Horizon sub-sector, this unit is made up of Vesen locals.
A good portion of the squad so far is made up of the classic metal Cadians. These are members of the Vesen Defence Force. I thought the less high-tech look of the armour and weaponry compared to my Vastadtians in their Cadian pattern armour suited the PDF forces.
I have used members of the last chancers and a few classic Tanith figures to the squad. I thought these guys looked like local militia fighters.
I also have a few Valhallan and steel legion models, representing the polar forces that defend the polar promethium fields (a vital lifeline for Imperial forces on Vesen). There is also a rat-skin in the mix. The next batch of conscripts will include a lot more of the old Necromunda miniatures I have accrued.
And finally some of the scratch company defending a lonely imperial outpost.
I recently picked up an Imperial Strong-point and this Imperial Bunker for a reasonable price. I was excited to paint the bunker up. More pics of this model very soon.
