Several of my friends make fun of the ig because there so weak in stats? Why do people always make fun of the almighty IG? Most of the people that say it i have beaten several times, but they still make fun even after I beat there butts in.
They say that they weren't paying attention during the game, or they blam me that I cheated somehow?
Why do people poke fun at us?
Because they play Space Marines.
Its shock at being beaten by a non 3+ save army there are always bad players out there, I wouldnt even make fun of a grot army, in case I lose to it and look really stupid.
Give your men cameleoline and put them in ruins befor shooting sm wit plasma and see how he likes that, oh and get several Russ'
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
I'm not a IG player but hear this alot. Especially a GK player I know. But I don't think he'd find it so funny when Guardsmen outnumber his GK's at least 4:1.
Its because they are jealous of us. Our army outnumbers theirs, that scares them, so they have to start making fun of ours to give them selves a confidence boost. I say let them have their fun, you can always wipe that smile off a few moments later when you comprehensively slaughter them
The Imperial Guard is like a punchbag - No matter how hard you hit it, it'll always be ready for a fight.
Vcitory for the Imperial Guard comes about through the sacrifice of our men, not through the cowardly survival tricks of other armies.
I think It's because Lasguns are the worst basic guns in the game. Its fair enough, But we have enough of them to bring down loads of Space Marines, and Russ' are just hell for Marine players.
So would your army be better if you had WH in it like mine?
Yeah easily understandable, each squad of ours can take a heavy bolter
or sumthin, and on top of that a specialist. If you want mount it in a chimera.
Then you have the cruel option of making a mechanised list. Like mine.
Throw a few tanks on top of that, and you got them scared. Thats why they laugh
at us. Well no less, we can probably smell the fear off of them anyway.

My friends used to make fun of IG, "the weak humans".
this was until they played a few games
them: "you done setting up?"
me: "yeah, my first troop"
them: "WTF that was one troop?!"
me: "yeah i have 2 more to go.
and then there's the 4ed Omega rules... god, they don't like those
space marines players laugh because they know the guard can get things that they cant.
lemen russ, destroyer, not to mention the heavy weapons that each regiment gets. i love watching guard eat marines :cool:
Probably the same reason my friends laugh at my orks.
They take a look at the general stat line and proceed to laugh. Only to realize that for everyone of their combat gods, you can get 2 manic killing machines to go raise some hell. The most fun I have is playing my orks against guard armies. The shooty horde v. the combat horde? Good fun!
Besides, I like the Imperial Guard. Their stuff is cheaper to loot. ^_^
