View Full Version : Favourite Imperial Guard Regiments!

I did as many as I could in the poll - add others if they are not listed.

So, who would you say is your favourite regiment and why?

I have always liked the miniatures from when I first saw 'em, and I felt that the background for them, with their war against the Orks after suffering so badly and their conscription of almost every single person left on the planet to combat them was just brilliant.

Also, there was an image in the 3rd Ed. Imperial Guard codex (I believe) that had a picture of the 999th Valhallan regiment, raised to fight the Orks during the battle of Valhalla. Something about it just appealed immensely to me. :D

My favorite look is the Steel Legion, my favorite fluff is the Death Korps, the line that I actually built an army with was the Mordians.

The ones I make myself. :) My favourite models? Probably the Tallarns or the Valhallans.

Just like I said in the poll in General Discussion. There is only one world where the Guardsmen have caused an Inquisitor to fear the men on his own side as much or more so than the daemonic creatures he was about to face. Those Guardsmen are from Cadia.

Gotta love the Catachans

An unexpected lead so far with three people going for the Valhallans - interesting, I have to say. I expected the Death Korps of Krieg to almost instantly dominate this thread.

But, unexpected occurances make life interesting!

My first love when the first IG codex was the Valhallans... just purely for the look of the models, and Captain Chenkov...

Nowadays, still like the Valhallans, but the Death Korps are too cool to ignore....

08-11-2007, 19:43
I voted Valhallan in the end because I really do love the models. :)

I love the Catachans. Why? Because they are simply so darned gung-ho about fighting, because they come from the probably worst planet in the galaxy, where their children learn to fight before they can walk, because they have a special character whose name is Sly Marbo. I mean...

Armageddon Steel Legion - Name, fluff, models. I like painting them too, and I use them as my armored fist troopers. My second favorite would have to be Tallarns.

08-11-2007, 21:43
what about my praetorians...

or have they been offically dropped from the fluff?

08-11-2007, 22:24
vallhallans russians FTW! follwed by praetorians and steel legion least favourite is death korp

08-11-2007, 22:37

Catachans says I. Burly gung ho woodsmen from the deadliest jungle in history.
Eldar, ork, nid or necron alike: You walk on their yard, you're cruisin for a bruisin.

Steel Legion, they are my main army so I have to vote for my boys. Seriously, they are my favorite models and the fluff is crazy cool. Armageddon FTW!

Vostroyan Firstborn i just think they are cool.

Gotta go with Steiner on the first part. When I get around to doing Guard (and I will - have no doubt about that!) it will be wholly my own regiment.

Modelwise... gah, its tough. There are, imho, a LOT of good Guard models out there...

The few Tanith models are among my favorite, but you really can't make an army out of those; Mordians and Praetorians score big points for the bright uniforms, and I love the Vallhallan and Vostroyan looks; Cadian has that lovely "Modern" look to them, which I also dig a great deal in its way; and the Tallarns have a special charm all their own imho...

I don't think I can make a decision model-wise; I really like them all in their own way.

It has to be Praetorians. There is something about Pith Helmets that make me start drooling. Plus you can make it look like the are pink and fluffy

Models and background, Death Korps of Krieg hands down. After that, Steel Legion then Cadians.

09-11-2007, 04:28
I really WANT to like Tallarn...but something about them. I dunno...

Yes you can, you just need to be ready to convert a lot. :)

I do love those FW DKOK models but they are very expensive for what they are (says someone who bought 5 sets of Vraks Militia + command, pyskers and Enforcers) I voted for Cadian as I have so many of them and their are just so many things you can do with them and they seem to be the most supported Guard model. They also look...well practable - don't get me wrong trench coats look great but the Cadian gear looks suitably advanced enough for my own image of the IG.
