As some of you know I've started a Krieg Death Korps army and have already posted some pics of them in the gallery (if you haven't seen them check it out quick! ).
I've decided to make the 993rd KDK Regiment commanded by Colonel Stagler from the 'Warriors of Ultramar' novel.
Now what I'd like to know is if anyone has any fluff or other information about the KDK. I know all the basic fluff as described in the IG codex but I'm looking for insignia, markings and so on (for example, the Cadians have their distinct Cadian Gate badge). I was wondering if anyone has any info on the symbols of Krieg.
I'm a fluff nut and I insist on my minis being as true to the fluff as possible... :rolleyes:
Well Boba, i assume you have read the chapter approved entry for them. If i remember correctly there was a lot of people lying across barbed wire so the units behind them can walk across their bodies. As such they say that the Death Krops welcome death. So i would say go with the skull motif. Lots and lots of skulls painted on their armour.
Hope it works out for you should be a great army to have when it's finished.
I play Death Korps, and am trying to redo the paint job on my models, so I don't really have that much in the way of insignia on my models.
I'm not sure in the fluff exaclty what their insignia looks like. I know it would rely heavily on the use of skulls.
The Good News is here!

Thanks fellas... That was what I was thinking of... I have already added the skull motif to the gas masks of my DK ladz... Skulls it is then!
i play death korp too,yeah the skulls are a big symbol they use, if you look on the back of the armageddon sentinal box it has a death korp sentinal for idea of what those look like, forge world has the new tank commander coming out, if it isnt already, they also automatically pass morale checks too
I know alittle fluff for the KDK being they got me into 40k. Like what some others said they have lots of skulls and dark clothing and they really don't care if they live or not. There was a article about them in an older WD can't remember the number that had an interesting story and a cool pic of a squad of KDK going against a mob of Black Legion.
It's fantastically exciting in a really boring way.
Intelligence is but a light in the darkness of life.
My mind is like a vacuum cleaner, it sucks up all of the little crap, but the big stuff has to be picked up by hand.
No I haven't actually read this CA entry... :huh:Originally posted by chemicalcaveman@Apr 5 2004, 13:13

Where can I find it?
I can't actually remember the number Boba sorry. I would have to look through my collection of WD's and see. Unfortunally i don't have them with me.
It's in the Chapter Approved 2003 book, along with a lot of other army lists, somewhere in the beginning of the book.
