does anyone know about links or have any ideas on the krieg way of thinking?
it is known that they consider themselves supposed martyrs for the Emperor, so is their main objective simply to die and killing the Emperor's enemies a nice side effect?
ive heard say they wouldn't even have medics because they wouldn't patch up their wounded.
how do you view the krieg?
idiots, I value the lives of every oe of m men, how can u serve the emperor if you are dead.
YEs, That buy charging into combat and into hellish situations there are repaying there dept to the emporor they created during there hersey.
Death is the greatest gift to the Emperor! Deeds are Greater than words! It is better to die for the Emperor than live for yourself! Death to the Xeno! Death to Mutant! Death to the heretic! Choke the enemies rivers with your blood! Smother the enemy with your dead! When in doubt throw more men at it!
I get a little over the top sometimes... comes with being an inquisitor and all. Anyways I think thats how a Kreig guardsmen would think, over top faith.
-For the Emperor
In an Imperium of a million worlds, what is the death of one world in the cause of purity?
He who allows the alien to live,
shares its crime of existence.
hmm so more on the side of fanaticism then.
I think its foolosh for IG to charge ahead into death thinking that some godly emperor will save them. Just cause some lunatic commisar or inquisitior orders you to charge out into death, would you do it? Same things as someone tells you to jump off the bridge, would you?
My strategy is based on careful tactical thinking, know your enemy, expose his weakness, strike hard, and retreat before giving a chance to recover. I am not a traitor or a disbeliever, but following orders without paying attention to anything elkse is a very good and effective way to get yourself killed.
I doubt they would be very fanatical, they're probably extremely humour-challenged, among other things. I would assume that they would simply go to war thinking "great, now i can get out of this s**t life a little faster."
the leaders, like colonels and commisars are probably the most dour and humourless people in the galaxy, as well as going by the old addage "if at first you don't succeed, throw more men at it."

think wwi german
Three Companies of the 26th Vinancium
143rd Airborne Badgers (99.9% done)
159th Corsair Rifles (35% done))
69th Armored Wall Busters (95% done)
Total 197 men, 12 tanks, 4 Heavy Artillery Pieces
I suggest you re-read your ww1 and ww2 history. You might be a little surprised at what the average soldier will do when given an order.Just cause some lunatic commisar or inquisitior orders you to charge out into death, would you do it? Same things as someone tells you to jump off the bridge, would you?
As for the Deathkorps of Krieg, I dont believe they would WANT to die, but at the same time they fully intend to sacrifice themselves in bloody glory for the golden throne.
Basically, they wouldn't just put themselves in harms way (they excell at siege warfare, sticking in their fortifications, fox holes and trenches is their forte, lobbing a few shells), however if they were given the order to charge into no-mans land, they would definitely not hold back.

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
but dont forget, we arent soldiers. We are commanders so technically we are the once who are supposed to give order, and each commander has his own agenda to pursue. So techinically, if you want to charge out into death, be my guest, I would never give such an order. but then I wouldnt have to since I personaly control an airborne unit
