Terphion platoon — part 1

So I finally decided to start assembling an army seriously. So far I put together half a platoon of guys for my homemade custom world regiment. A bit about that first.

I was always interested in 40k fluff more as a template to work upon, especially since a universe with such a size and variety is perfect for that kind of thing. Thus when I decided to make my guard army I didn't want to go with one of the famous regiments, but had an idea about making my own instead. I like Catachan or Elysian aesthetic a lot but they are much better suited to represent veteran squads rather then regular guardsmen IMO. Most wars of the galaxy are fought by simple guys from some unknown planet and I think this idea represents what the Guard is all about a lot.
