812th Armageddon Steel Legion

812th Armageddon Steel Legion

The bulk of my Armageddon army, currently fighting in the big Third Battle of Armageddon, routinely against Orks, but may occasionally have to deal with Chaos Space Marines as well.
History
They don't have much experience when it comes to fighting, only recently been stood up as a regiment as the war against the Orks rages on. As a result most of their troops are green recruits taken from the streetgangs of the planet or seasoned veterans from regiments that have been wiped out and forcibly disbanded. They

Paint Scheme: Not finalized yet, but will be a mix of khakis, gunmetals and dark earth colors for troops; vehicles will be grey with cream colored camo. As the army is fairly young they are enthusiastic about decorating themselves and their units with the spoils of war, and so Ork heads on tank or other trophies of war and homemade medals and awards aren't uncommon.
812 Armageddon Steel Legion 500 point Dismounted Platoon - A scouting force built as a conventional dismounted infantry platoon with recce assets. My first attempt at a small squad so I can start building with a purpose.

Armageddon Steel Legion Expeditionaries

A brother army of the Armageddon Steel Legion, the Steel Legion Expeditionaries, are a highly trained Regiment of Armored Imperial Guard that is sent to a number of outer-rim frontier worlds under threat of attack by Xeno forces, in particular Orks and in toxic environments. They specialize in heavily armored assaults, anti-vehicle tactics, and en-masse ork infantry extermination. Often fight alongside the Death Korps of Krieg in toxic environments, due to their shared specialized training. Most Guardsmen in this force are Veterans due to their experience fighting on Armageddon before embarking on these extended away missions.
This army is mainly so I can experiment with paint schemes and unit composition and for playing games in other environments or non-conventional games like Apocalypse, Escalation, Kill-Team and a sort of Space Hulk type game, while keeping with the lore of my army.
