I know someone I talked to suggested GW could put out a "longcoats" box that could be built as Steel Legion, Krieg or Valhallans with just head swaps.

Yeah something like the HH Space Marine upgrade kits would work well with the Imperial Guard. Sell a basic box of bodies, say a mix of great coats and cadian style armoured bodies with weapons then sell boxes of heads and accessories for different regiments like Valhallans and Steel Legion. Wouldnt work as well with say the Vostroyans or Catachans as they have more unique designs with the ornate coats and armour of the former and the muscular ramboness of the latter. Honestly the Catachans could use new kits to, they have aged... bad.

They were one of the IG regiments i was least fond of, not because i disliked them or anything they just didnt click twith me personally but i dont mind them either. I would still think it cool if they got new models too.

In order of preference, this is how i rate the various IG regiments (the ones that had models anyway). Also in order of which ones i would like to see get range refreshes.

Cadian
Valhallan
Vostroyan
Scions
Steel Legion
Tanith
Death Korps
Praetorians
Elysians
Rough Riders
Tallarn
Mordian
Catachan

Yes i know, i put the most boring looking poster boys at the top but ive always liked Cadians. My brother had a lot of them when i was a kid (and lots of other IG units), they were in the Dawn of War games and had the Kasrkins which were the very first IG models i ever owned when i was a child. Ive always had a soft spot for them.

Valhallans for a while were my favourite regiment as a kid and i always loved the ww2 russian aesthetic on them so have a soft spot for them and own a bunch of the metal ones though i was planning on stripping them at some point in the future and repainting them as i feel i can paint them better now.

Vostroyans i just think are fucking cool, i mean Imperial Russian Steam punk cossacks in space, thats awesome. I remember when i was a kid there was a particular issue of white dwarf that featured them vs deathguard during the Medsusa V campaign and i must have read that battle report dozens of times. As ive mentioned before ive always been annoyed at myself that i never bought a set of them before they went oop.

Scions are neat, Steel Legion are neat. Have a soft spot for the Tanith due to the Gaunts Ghosts novels but was never too fussed on their models though i do have the new kit. The rest are okay. Catachan are at the bottom because the never really clicked for me and their models have aged horribly.

Especially since they'd be perfect candidates in the "long coats" idea.

597th Valhallan when? Would be fun to see one (Lord) Commissar Ciaphas Cain, Hero of the Imperium! on the tabletop.

Yeah and they could pair him up with Jurgen as something similar to an Ogryn Bodyguard. Give Jurgen a unique anti-Psyker ability or something since he is a blank.

Basically their back story is that they come from a shrine world and are dedicated to Saint Drusus, whose death mask they wear in honor. They're small in relative numbers but make up for it with superior training and equipment - going hard as fuck to get the job done with unwavering faith in the Emperor. Basically Cadians crossed with Sisters of Battle.

I quite like these new necromunda models

I think this lady could be a cool basis for an inquisitor/rogue trader conversion

Got my cadia stands box delivered today, though the delivery driver fucked it over the gate onto my path and caved in the side of the package before fucking off without getting it signed for. Despite that bullshit thankfully the box inside the packaging containing the actual models and codex etc was fine and everything inside is okay. Ill have a look through the sprues tonight and have a look at the codex too to read some stuff.

Some of the wargear options for various Astra Militarum squads are a bit... odd.

Astra Militarum Infantry Squad (Basic squad unchanged from last edition): x10 men, one soldier can have a special weapon , sergeant can swap their laspistol and chainsword for other wargear they had access to previously, you can have a vox caster and swap out two men for a heavy weapons team which can take any heavy weapon they previously could.

Cadian Shock Troops Squad: x10 men, cant have a heavy weapons team but can take two special weapons instead of one, can have a vox caster and their sergeant can swap out their laspistol for a bolt pistol or ditch both for a drum fed autogun, but dont have access to to other weapons sergeants typically have.
---Unique ability: Shock Troops: "Each time a model in this unit makes a ranged attack with a lasgun or laspistol an unmodified hit roll of 6 scores one additional hit"

Death Korps of Krieg Squad: x10 men, default comes with a plasma gun, cant take a heavy weapons team but two other guardsmen can take special weapons (excluding plasma guns), can take one medic pack, sergeant can swap out their laspistol and chainsword for other wargear they had access to previously. Can also take a vox caster.... but only if they dont take the default plamsa gun.
----Unique Ability: Death Korps: "Each time an attack is made against this unit, an unmodified wound roll of 1-2 for that attack automatically fails, irrespective of any abilities that the weapon or model might have"

Catachan Jungle Fighters Squad: x10 man squad, can take a flamer for every five men in the squad (but no other special weapons), can take a vox caster and their sergeant has a laspistol and.... nothing else. They get a laspistol. And grenades, but everyone gets them.
----Unique Ability: Jungle Fighters: "Each time a model in this unit makes a melee attack, an unmodified hit roll of 6 scores one additional hit"

The stats are the same across all squads. There are no unique options for Valhallan, Mordian squads etc probably because they dont do the models any more. No issues with the Cadian and Infantry Squads, Krieg are fine minus the stupid plasma gun or vox caster thing. And the Catachans are just.... lol

edit: This is not taking into account strategems, regimental doctrines etc that you can also use, just the war gear options.

I'm considering creating lore for an Imperial Guard Special Regiment that is specifically built to counter and kill Space Marines, chaos or otherwise. I think I'll have them be under the Inquisition and be made mostly out of Tempestus Scions using ceramite-penetrating hellguns. I'm having trouble coming up with more anti-space marine tactics for this regiment so I'm hoping you folks have suggestions.

I guess but killing space marines is what this group of regular guys do.
