Hey guys thx for helping me out in the first few weeks of my new endeavour, now i just have to decide what type of IG looks better, stronger (if the guardsmen could cover this part i'de be happy) and buy them. I dont know, i saw the steel legion units up for sale on the GW net and thought they reminded me of some german soldiers back in WWII (Lol) anyways im kinda keen on the SL rather than the Big C (Cadian) tell me guys.....i think the imperial fruit blender has a bit of chaos stuck inside..
Well the Steel Legion is crafted to look like it belonged in WWII, they are very cool looking.
I don't know what looks "stronger" but I like the look of the standard Cadians. Very professional looking. But for sheer pizzaz the Steel Legion models have it in spades.
I love the look of Steel Legion, but if I was going to start again, I would go Cadian because they are way cheaper and more convertable.:rolleyes:

If you have the money go for Krieg, if not Cadians.

With them having all the Heavy weapon teams (plus a few that you normally can't get), there is no reason why you shouldn't get a Krieg army (if you have the money of course).
I play my 40k with friendly fire.
Finally fixed the link!
Vostroyans look bad ass, in my opinion. They may not have the scare factor of the Armageddon, or the professionalism of the Cadians, but they do have that "I'm going to kick your ass with my furry hat" air about them.
I would suggest thinking about your armies background, and what you want them to be like on the battlefield before choosing which range to go for. A mechanised or tank heavy force would use the Steel Legion minis, of course (Or maybe the Vostroyans, they look very industrial). Maybe a drop troop army? I'd use cadians for that one =P So, choose your doctrines and then your play style and get back to us ^__^
In the interest of not totally hijacking the thread however, I vote that you go Cadian if you actually like to build the models. The Kreig are cool looking but you will be dealing with tons and tons of troops in a guard army (usually). It's much nicer to do this with plastic models because of the cost but also for the conversion potential. I recently made myself a squad of vets with long trench coats made of greenstuff under their armor and the bretonian men-at-arms heads and shields. Most of my plasma and meltas are conversions as well. Having more than GW stock sculpts adds a lot of character to an army and that is a lot less easy to do with metal models than plastics.
As for where, it's in the forgeworld newsletter.
