Welcome everyone!
This is the Warhammer 2 Version of my Imperial Guard mod. This mod adds the "Imperial Guard" unit to the Empire faction. I wanted to make this unit for a long time. It is how i imagine a fictional imperial guard regiment for the empire would look like. It is not based on any lore material, however i did try to fit it into the lore as good as possible.
There will also be a mounted version in the future however as they do have customized textures and i want to do the same for their horses it will still take some time to finish them.

I hope you enjoy this mod but i welcome any constructive feedback so that i know what's good and where things could be improved.

1. General Description:

This mod adds a new unit to the Empire of Man:

Imperial Guard

"The Imperial Guard of Reikland is recruited directly from the most elite knights of the Reiksguard Order.
