Hello everyone

I was wondering if there's any stuff known about specific imperial guard regiments fighting the splinter fleets of hive fleet kraken on the eastern fringe, apart from the mordian guard. Preferably those in the standard pattern armour.
I'm asking this for inspiration on any wall of martyr terrain sets, which has imperial guard (cadian pattern armour) corpses all around it, and I'd like to paint it 'in theme', so to speak.

And yes, I still use the nomer 'imperial guard'. I'm of the stubborn oppinion that the codex is now called astra militarium because it includes both imperial guard and imperial navy.

I still use "imperial guard" as well. I own a complete army of these guys but as i haven´t played a game for quite some time i didn´t buy the astra militarum codex. so i go with the old name. and if i want to play a game, my friends would be ok with me playing the old codex.

But on to your "problem", i can´t help you when you look for some existing fluff concerning guard regiments fighting in that area. But as there are thousands of regiments fighting all over the galaxy, i would just invent my own one.
Maybe even invent some little fluff of your own and make sure that the whole regiment gets wiped out by a hivefleet :twisted:

For the colour scheme i would do something that fits to the colour of the bases/terrrainsets that you use. Off the paradeground they use camoflage so you can come up with whatever you like.
