Title: Imperial Army Concept Artwork
Description: From a display at WHW...

I saw this on a display board at Warhammer World last week - they were labelled "Imperial Guard/Army Designs" and dated 1998... so I don't know whether they are intended to be pre-Heresy or not, but they certainly look cool!

Excuse the reflective surfaces, I will try to get better pics another time...

I've seen those somewhere before, but can't remember where! Good pictures.

A few of them look similar to the diagrams of the various regiment designs in the IG Collectors Guide - I wonder if there was a brief for a ton of them to be created, and then they only went with a few in the book?

interesting stuff though, cheers Shroud!

They are the images from the IG codex 2 back. There were about 60 of them.

Yeah like lucius says they are from the old guard codex with the green border.

I've not seen the guy with the bow before though.

Thats the kind of stuff GW needs to put in White Dwarf again.

Wow, great pictures !

These all appear in an IG codex.

I think it's 3rd edition.

Been looking for a decent wallpaper that features all those old school IG soldier lay outs. Can't seem to find any around.

Sorry for the threadnomancy, but Shroud, since you work at GW now, couldn't you try to get better pictures?

Apologies for "threadomancy".

Yes, that's right. I actually happen to have a copy of the Codex in question. It's the one with the old-fashioned Cadians fighting in the trenches on the front cover.

Sorry to burst your bubble Shroudfilm, but they are definitely present day 40k Imperial Guard regiments there. They're in the middle of the book and each has a small anecdote about them.

All I said was that the drawings were labelled as "Imperial Army"... just because something is still around in M41 doesn't mean it wasn't ALSO there in M31.

Calgar - as has been noted, these are in the old IG codex in a reworked form. Do you have access to a copy?

Unfortunatley, no I do not.
