The Penal Legion

I have finished the first squad of my Imperial Guard; penal legionnaires. They aren't the greatest in game terms, but they look like they could be fun. They have been made from GW Imperial Guards with the heads replaced; these come from West Wind's 'Secrets of the Third Reich' range. They fit pretty well if you drill out the necks of the figures. All wearing guantanamo orange uniforms.

I have started on a second squad; this time using a mix of Imperial Guard torsos and arms alongside Beastman legs and heads. In the original fluff you could have Beastman squads... I used to have some of the original figures, but they seem to have disappeared. Pity; the beastman with a plasma pistol and chainsword was quite nice.
