Imperial Fists – Support Squad

Hey all

Another quick update today. Finished a support squad for the Imperial Fists. These guys have magnetized weapon hands, allowing them to swap out between a wide range of different weapons. At the moment I’ve painted up options to equip them with either heavy bolters, plasma guns or flamers. In theory the squad can be equipped with any hand held special weapon or any of the underslung heavy weapons from Forge World. I’d love to get some volkite weapons for them next to give them a few more choices in equipment.

I’ll probably use them with heavy bolters most often, as I think this is a weapon combination that the Imperial Fists can really take advantage of. Their legion special rule means these guys fire at BS5, with 30 str 5 shots between them. More, they also have tank hunter thanks again to being Imperial Fists, meaning the squad should have no trouble taking out the odd rhino here and there, which can always be very handy.

Getting very close to the end of the list for the Imperial Fists now, so very excited!

Cheers guys!
