Welcome to Librarium Online!
As the topic suggests, I am trying to pick an allegiance to a faction for my IG. It will either be Loyal Imperial, Chaos Undivided, or Slaanesh. Give me feedback as well as votes.
meh, go loyalist. millions of worlds so your fluff options are fairly open. chaos renegade militia does look cool and has some really nice forgeworld models and conversion opportunities but meh, it's a little narrow on the imagination scale (the concept of chaos in general isn't that great imo) and even more so with focusing on just one god like slaanesh, whom i must say won't be the slightest bit pleased that you'll be hard pressed to field all your units in multiples of 6, his favored number.
but if you do chaos, there will be props to you, but only if you do them right...
i miss lost and the damned, they're what chaos armies should be, not warbands of chaos space marines, simply a couple csm's leading massive hosts of cultists, mutants, and traitor guard.
We are the first line of defense of Humanity. Chaos is for people that enjoy make conversions for the models. If just there was some extra rules... Something like a posesed Vendetta or Armoured Sentinel with a Giant Chainsawsword or Mutated Ogrins. Honestly, if GW make a chaotic IG codex, that can be just awesome.

yeah. and i've now realized that a pink army would look really wierd (for IG). and special rules would be nice. a great project for an apocolypse army.
The conversion opportunites are phenomenal- you can make demonic tanks, bio-valkyries, whatever you want- without the darn inquisition looking over your shoulder.
I am a dyed in the wool Cadian, love em
But... if I had the chance to do it all over again... I think I would go chaos undivided.
A) it's rare, most IG players are loyalists
conversion potential is insane
C) the fluff is very cool
Use Straken as a Aspiring Champion, Ogryns as daemons/mutants, Commissars as enforcers, Penal Legions as mutants, ect ect...
Hell you can even use GKT as Chaos Terminators.
The biggest downside is that is will most likely cost you more money and take you longer to build, but they payoff is worth it imo
Very disturbing to look at. Though I beat him handily. We had a nice little Ogryn on Ogryn battle at the climax. Where, I'm proud to say, my boys (in their 2nd Ed wifebeater shirts) slapped his girls down and took the objective.
sounds funny. i'm still trying to decide. and while we are on this topic, we come to another dilemma, conscripts. i have decided not to include conscripts in my army because they are probably the worst invention mankind has seen since the toilet paper dispenser hat. what do you guys think?
Skip conscripts unless you use Chenkov, they're not very good anymore.
Chaos Undivided or Loyalist.
If you pick Loyalists, non-Cadians are nice. If resin and metal models are too expensive, then simple conversions like head swaps from companies such as Pig Iron work too.
There is no such thing as a plea for innocence in my court. A plea for innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty.

even with Chenkov, I played a game on VASSAL today. they were the first to die.
