After the Storm - One Last Outing for Codex Imperial Guard

-->
Opposing forces have been widely scattered after violent atmospheric disturbances in the last twelve hours, with infantry digging-in deep, naval forces grounded and armoured units being secured within impromptu laagers. Now though, as the rad-storms and electron blizzards begin to subside, the ground elements have started to reorganise and get back to the job at hand.
In this sector, both sides are keen to locate an unidentified object which disappeared suddenly from scanners after plummeting from high orbit towards a post-industrial wasteland deep in no-man’s-land.

I'll be making the journey down to Plymouth after work tomorrow for one last game using the soon to be retired Imperial Guard codex for a big old scenario bash with the good Admiral Drax. Pictures will be taken aplenty I'm sure, but first I had to put together an army. The scenario calls for flyers and artillery to be left at home, and for the army to be broken into two core elements, the main Infantry force of 1500pts, and a more rapidly moving Cavalry group of 1000pts which will arrive from reserve as the game. So here we go!
