I wonder which one people like the most, because they are the same amount of points, but are used in different ways. Any thoughts, please help.
This is why I voted Sternguard. There's a reason opposition players hate them, and there's also a reason no opposition players care too much about Vanguard Vets. Largely because they suck.I don't play marines but I laugh at vanguard and throw them some banshees, but I take stern guard very seriously. Sternguard out of drop pods is one of the things that scares me the most in the space marine list. I can handle termies, tanks, scouts, ASM's because i can get a running start at em. But i do NOT have a good hard counter for the first round of uncontested shooting that a ten man sternguard can put out. The very existence of the sternguard has forced me to switch to an all reserves list simply because having the sternguard chew up two transports immediately is too expensive.
Aww, that's just mean. At least there are certain situations (aka small unit of gitz + badrukk) where flash gitz can actually accomplish something, namely mowing down 2+ saves. Vanguard...no, they've got no redemption in my eyes.It's not even a question, Sternguard are great and Vanguard are terrible.
It's like comparing Lootas to Flash Gitz.
