Fantastic with epic proportions! I love every single detail of it, you can see a lot of effort. Are they mostly Deathwatch? (Blood Angel, Ultramarine and Space Wolf?) I can see some techpirest and the Terminator is a Grey Knight? Who's the guy dual wielding guns? I can't recognize the guards with helmet, are they all imperial guard? Really impressive!

Its a deathwatch kill squad, lead by n inquisitor, in the terminator armour, I figured the guardsman and dual weilder are his personal retinue (the guy dual wielding is a convict/penal division, hence chained to the inquisitor) I wanted to try some of the more twisted denizens of the imperium :-) . I know the guardsman aren't entirely codex, but I like the openended nature of 40k so there's room for randomness XD. Glad you like it though

That's an awesome retinue! And guardsmen not being entirely codex? You probably have never seen this pic then. It came from an earlier edition of the Imperial Guard codex:[link] and [link] it's so full of win imho.

lol, I've been into GW sinse 87, i knew the guards have a huge range of styles, but occasionally people forget and crit without realising too (sorry for bracketing you in that category)

Oh you mean them not looking like Cadians or whatever? And I was posting it up to support, didn't mean to come across as criticizing. I like seeing different regiments and those pictures are what got me into liking the Imperial Guard. Btw, did you model them off of anyone in particular? They remind me a lot of cuirassiers [link] (wikipedia pic).
