Whiteshields, also known as Conscript Platoons, are Imperial Guard units consisting of either normal Imperial citizens, with little or no military training, conscripted into service, or newly recruited Imperial Guardsmen/women, who have not yet received their formal training. Whiteshield units are typically formed out of necessity, when fresh bodies are needed for the battlefield. Unlike the standard Imperial Guardsman/woman, Whiteshields do not wear regimental insignias or heraldry; instead, they have a simple white stripe painted on their helmets to identify their position within the regiment.
Using the Cadian quick build kit, I built and painted five more Whiteshield soldiers. While I painted the previous group of Whiteshields in an urban camouflage pattern (please see part 1 for more details), I painted this group of Whiteshields in a jungle camouflage pattern. To distinguish these miniatures from the standard guardsman, I painted a solid white stripe on the helmets: the distinguishing mark of a Whiteshield.
