Hi, I am trying to make my army a grenadiers/storm troopers/special forces unit and I wish to know what should I give them rules wise? Grenadiers equipment is obvious (which is the reason for my army being in full Carapace Look a Like):
I tried to look in the Only War RPG books for the Grenadiers, and apparently they are good at assault (and siege, so they would probably be equipped with meltas) but they also have a sort of powerful will, which I can only translate through HQs like Creed or Yarrick.
The greatest victory in this game, and in life is winning having as much as fun as possible!

nice models. the females look decent as well, however, why would they abandon their specialist gear? droptroops wouldn't just put off their helmet. perhaps try to clip a helmet to their belt and try to sculpt a microphone on their head? i really like the fact that you included females in the army though!
On the modelling side of things, this has a very appealing look to it. Nice inclusion of female squad members aswell.
Is it posible to see each miniature in more detail? I'd like to give a few tips on how to make them look better. - One thing that sticks out to me is where the gun should be gripped by the right hand. On the models where it is visible, I can see an enormous gap between the hand and gun. clipping or shaving the gun stock would greatly reduce this gap, and with some tweaing of the pose, make the model look even more ready and able. - I do like the se of Power Armour arms, however, it feels a little too armoured when compared to the rest of the model. Modified or custom Scout arms would probably be best, however if you have the GS know-how, you could try sculpting Carapace armour of your own design onto these. - The Sergeants feels a little dis-connected from the squad, with their Gunslinger over Command posing, making them appear to be some Rogue Trader rather then the LEader of a squad. In-game, I also fear it wouldn't do them much good in combat, as all their gear is Shooting focused. - The "Power Packs" look cool, but very inconsistant from model to model. I'd recommend grabbing plenty spare plastic Vox-caster pieces, and converting a few to find a unique look you like, then try casting with Blu-stuff for plenty of replication.
These are just my opinions, and I hope this army theme/project continues and looks great ^_^
