Welcome to Librarium Online!
Does anyone have any tips on how to get a Death Korps of Krieg force that is really good?
And, is Forge World the only place you can buy the models for them? They are really expensive in US Dollars...
Currently forgeworld is the only place that you can get Death Corps and yes they are expensive.
You may be able to pick them up cheaper second hand from Ebay or similar (if there is anyone who actually wants to sell any).
Current rumours have the new guard release including models in great coats with heads for either death corps or valhallans. This is still speculation and I am by no means an authority on this.
I also believe that death corps now requires at least two of the forgeworld campaign books to benefit from all their special rules.
Indeed, Forgeworld is the only place where you can get Death korps models.
Imperial Guard: 3000 pts
Chaos Daemons: 1000 pts
They look almost exactly like steel legion minis. Just paint them black with a skull on their person somewhere and there ya go.
Victory is achieved through mettle.
Glory is acheived through metal.
In all honesty, I'd say buying the FW models is worth it. They are gorgeous. I've painted a lot of them for my friend and its a joy to do cause of how nice they are.
I'd say use Cadian models unit you find a way to get them cheap, or build up your force enough...
Using the Steel Legion is a generally good idea. the main difference is in the mask, which normal nonces won't notice. A simple paint job free styled sorts that out though and they look excellent.
And yeah, you need the Siege Of Vraks books. Not just to use them, but for the book itself.
You get Thudd Guns or Quad launchers, whichever you prefer. But they are disgusting, even more so in 5th ed. and Krieg get more. And you get proper rules that are great. Its just generally a cool army. In all honesty, sticking with fluff when making the army is the way to make it the toughest.
By the way, don't just paint a random skull on them...make the mask they have have a skulled pattern on it. and it doesn't have to be the same as some folk think.
If you want to use the grenadiers, just get the FW ones its worth it. But they are just stormtroopers for Krieg rules.
Also, I'll post up some of the pics if you like.

In 1996 (I beleive) Warzone (I think) released a boxed set, with 28mm infantry in trenchcoats with WWII Desert style helmets, and gas masks. Multi Part. Plastic. Posable (well limited poseable the torso's were one piece, and about 5 different varients but stop whinging)
At Salute earlier this year i spent my last £ 50 before payday on Forge World bits, and was mortified to see a black bin later on that day with bags, with about 30 in them each for £ 10.
They're out there, I've seen them twice. If i see them again I'm getting as many as i can carry for a krieg army.
P.S. F/W are really expensive in UK sterling too. I still buy them as i have no hope of getting a morgage anyway.
