Not sure if this should be on the iron warriors section or here, so correct me if I am wrong

 

but I was looking at doing an auxilia list for my IVth legion.

was asking if any has done one yet, and what models were used.

was looking at doing grenadiers supported by penal/angry mob, mostly to drown the enemy with bodies.

was looking at doing anvil industries for most of them.

Sektor from the Age of Darkness podcast has a thread (above) about his Volgan regiment that he links to his Iron Warriors. There we also a number of other threads where people are developing Militia armies to support Legion forces.

In terms of models, it depends what you are after. Imperial Guard models are easy to find, easy to convert and look the part. If you want something more Geno Two-Five, Perrys miniatures (https://www.perry-miniatures.com) offer some good Napoleonic or Seven Years War models if you want a more traditional uniform. You could also consider WW2 historical models, especially the plastics from Warlord Games (https://store.warlor...ons/bolt-action). Warlord are also now selling Konflict '47, which despite being an awful game (like Bolt Action), has some good 'odd' pseudo-historical / sci-fi models. At the end of the day, think of a theme and shop around for bits to convert into what you want.

I like the bitz box, ancient models for levy troops, need to see if my opponents are ok with the occasional non GW fig in those mobs (urban war, warzone, etc) thank you good sir!

Victoria miniatures does several styles of infantry as well, worth checking them out. They just came out with some brutal looking gas-masked grenadiers that might fit in well with the Iron Warriors!

digging them hexenheim troopers, might shave the spikes off the tops, would be very nice as grenadiers, and the price isn't too bad either, thanks

If I were going to do Militia (or Solar Auxilia for that matter), I'd probably go with Anvil Industry.
