Beer, Pipes, and Guns... Dwarves had the right idea.
In all honesty with the current rules, I wouldn't take wither. White Lions are slightly more effective, but they are still competing for slots with bolt throwers and eagles, and my commanders have better uses than lionguard.
Modelwise, the PG models are absolutely brilliant and they have nice fluff to, so I had to vote for them.
i went phonix cus they are arguably the best looking models in fantasy but the rules for both units suck and i wouldn't be caught dead feilding either until they are updated.

"i'm gonna grant you your greatest wish i'm gonna show you a world without sin" ;- serentiy
"I am a leaf on the wind, watch how i soar" ;- serenity
rules wise i chose white lions. stubborn (i'm quite lucky with I@C) and the almost always get to charge and hack the enemy appart.
Altough the fluff of the PG really cool is (as are their miniatures) only they suck in the game.
So i chose WL.
Fluff: White lions - The bodyguard rules are pretty cool. But I also because I think the fluff for the PG is broken. Think about it. The PG cause fear because they fight in absolute silence even when killed. However they panic/break just as easily as spearmen. I'm sorry but if they are that unphased in combat that they fight and die in absolute silence they should also have something that goes with that. Like stubborn, immune to psycology, unbreakable, immune to panic. At least one of those things.
Usefullnes: White lions - They can become a special choice, woodsmen, bodyguard, str6. Stubborn with general, Korhil. PG are always rare, too expensive and you need too many to take advantage of causing fear.
Looks: PG - They are the coolest looking infantry models in the games. This is the main reason I sometimes use them. They just look too cool on the table.
They are silent because they are magically bound by their oath to defend the fire that decides on the Phoenix King (I forget what it's called).if they are that unphased in combat that they fight and die in absolute silence
My vote goes to the PG, because the models and fluff are cool.
Fluff wise i think that white lions are better, i mean they have to kill a lion to get in! But combatwise i think that casuing fear is better and so i would go for phoenix guard. However the other rare options are both better that lions or phoenix.
If i had to make a choice tho i would say WHITE LIONS.

Both a waste of time as rare choices. :wacko:
