Due to the tight schedule I was working to, every time a mini was finished, it was packed straight into my case ready for the tournament and I never actually saw the army as a whole until I unloaded it onto a tray at Warhammer World ready for the tournament. While I was happy with the results, I was not expecting the response that I got on the day. As a gaming list I don't think that what I was running was completely viable for a highly competitive setting however, I did bring something to the table for the team.
I was nominated for both "best army" and "best conversion" (For the fleshy camo netting on the russ) and much to my surprise I went on to win best army!
This took me completely by surprise and I even though we didn't go on to win as a team, I was very pleased with what I achieved. Below I'm just going to add a few more shots of the army. I was offered to leave the models to be put on display at Warhammer World but I just couldn't bare to part with them when I finally came to make the decision.

|Close up of the freehand work on the fuselage, again another little reference to my all time favorite band ;)|
|The first of the Leman Russ tanks. This was used as a Pask counts as. Got quite a bite on it yet it often succumbed to enemy fire early on in my games.|

|Second Leman Russ|
|The flesh representing camo netting was what earned me the nomination for best conversion.|
|While I only used two veteran infantry squads in my games, this little group will probably be used as a command squad when I'm using this army as Renegades and Heretics rather than standard Guard|
|Possible contender for use as a company commander, Sgt., or priest|
|This was the first model I built for the army whilst toying with the idea. The main body is a DV cultist but the chest is a loose ribcage from a basing set and the hat and head are from the command squad and ghoul kits respectively.|
Overall I had an absolute blast making and using this army. If I remember correctly it only achieved a win, a loss and a draw as an Imperial Guard list but when using it in all it's glory as a chaos renegades force I'm on a win/loss/draw ratio of 3:0:0, Not bad going if I do say so myself. I'm currently working out what I would like to add to this list and I have a few units currently in the pipeline already which I hope to share with you soon!
Thanks for reading!
