Valhallan Ice Warriors
Death Korps of Krieg
I'm planning on starting to collect an Imperial Guard army soon. I already have substantial armies of Eldar, Dark Eldar and Tau but thought I could also use an IG one for the collection. The trick is I'm having a dilemma choosing between a company of Valhallans and a company of Death Korps of Krieg.
So the question I'm asking is- which is the best choice? From the experience of IG players, is one easier to collect than the other in terms of getting the right blisters and having to convert less?
Well there is quite a huge differance between them. Valhallans are metal, quite common on eBay (albeit also rather expensive compared to other IG armies) and the more expensive Death Korps are Resincasts from Forge World, really expensive. Did I mention they are really expensive?
As far as converting, I think you'd be better of using Valhallans, while the need for converting would be less with Krieg.
I'd like to recommend Valhallans, since IG rely on numbers and when those numbers come at a price of £3 each, numbers could easily ruin even a small country.
Death Korps are very much the in thing at the moment, plenty of people are taking them up, it's been a while since I've seen a new really nicely done Valhallan army though, go for it!
If it was me I wouldn't give it a second thought despite the price... Death Korps of Krieg. Their look and uniforms is something that is very interesting and you can play with colors schemes and insignia!
With a small difference comes the Valhallans resembling the Red Army...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Its easier to find a WWII miniatures game and play the Red Army. I game to Warhammer after playing Russians in another WWII game. Death Korps IMO look cooler too. Not every day you can field a WWI looking army.
Especially with those prices! :drinking:
I love my death korp they are the most detailed minis I have ever bought. With them you can use one of three lists, the standared doctrined list, the siege list found in imperial armour 5, or the armored company list. If you have the cash I really recomend a macharius, 2 battle cannon shots are just dirty.8X

i'd say go for DKoK, the valhallen models are quite old, an in some respects, quite ugly: the level of detail on DKoK is much higher.
But unless you (or your parents) own a few millions, collecting a complete DKoK army can get very costly
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
