I was thinking of starting impirial guard but i am unsure convince me to join your ranks model wise fluff wise and winning wise
If one must convince you then the guards aren't for you. It is a passion, the desire, and the wanting to lead the grunts to war and death. That and also you got to have a sense of humor as you would be incline to kill your own men.
Where the heck did all them guardsmen come from?
Great Wolf! Is that the howl of the 13th?
It's not really a case of "convincing," since in the end you're the one who's going to have to enjoy the army. IG armies tend to have a lot of infantry (whether you want to or not it seems!) supplemented with solid vehicles, and they are usually quite shooty. If that doesn't sound like fun to you, I recommend finding a different army to look at. If you like the models, then that helps too, and if you're a fan of the fluff, then there you go.
It doesn't "benefit" anyone for them to try to convince you, so why should someone do that? If you think you'll have fun with Imperial Guard, I say go for it.
I don't think the Guard are for you. If you need to be convinced, that is to say if you can't even be bothered to examine their pro's and con's yourself, the chances are that you won't be bothered to invest the large amounts of time involved in creating your army, customising it and then learning to win with it.
Sounds like Ultramarines might be more your thing.
Demanding that us Guard players 'convince' you is arrogant and condescending. You should try making your own decisions, I heard that doing so is an important step toward maturity.
A little more tact might have been rather more helpful in this case, don't you think? ~Raven~

It is entirely your choice OP; YOU have to find what YOU love.
Mes enfants. The OP might not have engendered much sympathy (or even interest, I suspect) by the way he posed and articulated his question, but let's make sure we keep it civil and friendly, shall we? Having said that, I'm not convinced this Thread has much of a shelf-life ... ... ...

If you need convincing to start an army, then it's probably not the army for you. I suspect that unless it's an army you and you alone really want to build and play, you'll lose motivation and stop halfway through if all you've got to work with is what others have said.
In my opinion, unless the army calls for you, it's not an army you should be starting.
