My Imperial Guard Army – 362nd Matherian Experiditionary Force

Follow-up to My Imperial Guard Army – 362nd Matherian Experiditionary Force from SoundRich MkII


Elites choices are powerful, but rare units. They are usually more powerful versions of your basic units, or specialised units in their own right.

My army has but one elites choice at the moment.


I use these models to represent ratling snipers. Ratling snipers for the sniping core of the Imperial Guard. I have modeled these troops and sniper-observer pairs on large bases. In game terms I count each base as 2 snipers. The models were originally going to represent special weapons teams equipped with sniper rifles, but since 6 ratlings only cost 1 pt more than a special weapons team with 3 sniper rifles, I went for the ratlings. Other advantages are the bonus to cover saves, and the fact that ratlings can infiltrate. This way of representing snipers is common in imperial guard armies, as many people don't like the ratling models.

In games, these guys take on tough creatures (since they wound on a fixed roll they're perfect for shooting big monsters). I also use them to disrupt enemy squads, since a squad that takes casualties from a sniper rifle can become pinned, unable to move as they hit the dirt!
