BoLS Retro Corner: Codex: Imperial Guard 2nd Edition

Dec 9 2015


Come take a ride in the BoLS Waaaay Back Machine: It’s Codex: Imperial Guard, 2nd Edition!

Fall In, Trooper! It’s another GLORIOUS Day in the Guard! It’s not easy being a “Normal” Human in the Grim Dark. But some times the little guy needs to stand-up to all those Heretics, Mutants, Psykers, Genetically Enhanced Killing Machiness, Xenos and over-all bad apples!

Codex: Imperial Guard brought us a closer look at 6 specific Imperial Guard Regiments: Catachans, Cadians, Mordians, Valhallans, Tallarns and Atillians. We also get a glimpse into the organization and structure of the early Imperial Guard with Commissars, Ogryns, and Ratlings. And of course, don’t forget about ALL THOSE TANKS!

Life in the Guard didn’t mean survival – It meant victory at any cost. Just don’t forget your Imperial Guardsmen Uplifting Primer…Or you’ll be shot.
