Death Korps of Krieg
Elysian Drop Troops
Cadian Shock Troops
Other- Tallarn, Valhallan, Steel Legion etc.
Do you like Death Korps, Elysians, Cadians, or Vostroyans, or other?
I personally like the Elysians.
I like the cadians for 4 reasons.
1) the models are better than those of many of the metal mini's
2) they have all of the options (except for demo charges but you can convert yourself a martyr bomber with little difficulty)
3) they're cheap as plastic not metal/resin
and 4) you don't have to order them online, i just feel guilty going to my indep. retailer for a game and using models i got elsewhere
IG Best Gen 1st overall of 10 DE 4th overall of 6
Eldar 3rd Overall/Best General of 26--2nd Overall/Best General of 7--1st Overall/Best General of 11
Well the independent retailer part doesn't hurt me because i sadly don't have one. But yes Cadians are great. But everyone uses them or Kreig lately. I like to have an unique army.
I like the Elysian models, but I can't be bothered to pay for them. My current theme is based heavily on Elysians, but I'm going conversion heavy to make them out of the cheaper Cadian plastics. Don't get me wrong, ForgeWorld's minis look much nicer- more human and less bulky- but I don't really want to spend so much on so few.
Now that the new IG book is giving us Valkyries and we're gaining (supposedly) plastic Stormtroopers, an Elysian force will be easier to model than ever, and have A LOT more character.
Also- you totally forgot Catachans. Their my second favorite guard army. The USMC in space!
Oh man I forgot all about the Catachan! Good save.
I always liked the Steel legion the most, but since the Cadians are a lot cheaper I had to switch over to them.
I can't really choose. DKoK have awesome models and fluff, Tallarn look awesome in art (sadly, the models don't live up to it), and Cadians are the quintessential guardsman (or woman). Then there is the Mordians, who go to war in dress uniform.
"The sergeant major asked me what my job is. I told him it's to do what I am told. He gave me a medal. I like the Imperial Guard."
"Innocentia Probat Nihil"
vote went with Cadians.
my army is (or had been) based off a contempary usmc regimental combat team so loved the look of cadians using modern camo tones... though i still haven't gotten around to converting my leman russes to look more 'modern'y as well... mainly as i hate gw's fetish of tiny turret with oversized cannon.
I like the Death Corps mainly due to their Awesome appearence.
