Imperial Guard

My Imperial Guard are my longest standing army, which I've had since I was at school. I only really got any of them painted (with my wife's help) for a Throne of Skulls event many years ago. Since then I started expanding the army myself, painting things up a unit at a time.

I had tried to expand the army with an extra 2,000 points during the 2014 Independent Characters' Hobby Progress Challenge, but that failed less than halfway through as I ran out of momentum once I hit my first major road block.

I tried one game of 8th edition, and now we've hit 9th edition. The army is paused while I wait and see what the new Guard Codex looks like for play. I don't want to paint up a ton of stuff then realise I've painted stuff that doesn't work any more, or isn't any good.
