Is a perfect tune for when my Space Wolves are riding their Space Wolves, along with their Space Wolves. In space.

Also is very good for my chaos demons/CSM allies. Especially if you look at it through Ahriman's eyes...

Still trying to find something that suits my evil space elves well. Metal doesn't really feel like it fits, though symphonic metal has some potential. Just doesn't feel sophisticated and arrogant enough. For my World Eaters, this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X51bFfyDoLE) seems fitting enough.

when my panzers (LR's) are storming in, and my fast movers are zooming over the table..
when I go 'all in'.....
the tune in my head is 'the spy from Alaska', by the 4skins (I live in Fairbanks Alaska, and was a skin in the 1980's)

when I just got a good beer buzz, or and stoned on Maryjane, and am just looking at my men standing to on the shelves in formation....
then the tune going through my head is the 'Radetsky March', esp if the conductor is Karajan......

My Mordian IG infantry army likes Carl Orff's "O Fortuna" from "Carmina Burana".

My StarWars IG, of course, is fond of John Williams's "Imperial March".

And my old World Eaters Chaos army had Korn's (naturally) "Dead Bodies Everywhere".

0.00 - A lone guardsman looks out across the battlefield the night before
0.50 - The army locks and loads and gets to the front line.
1.42 - All guns OPEN FIRE!
3.18 - The lone guardsmen surveys the carnage before succumbing to his wounds.

There it is! Star Wars fits EVERY 40k battle regardless of army - our fav is Empire Strikes Back movie soundtrack.

Runners up:
- Classical station on pandora
- Aphex Twin & Autechre mix
- Ghost Buster's movie soundtrack

Hmm, my Imperial Guard would have to be something like 10th Man Down by Nightwish (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQuRzlGGtVY). Though I've not considered it much.

For my Warriors of Chaos I can't go past Into Battle by Ensiferum (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKYhi6Om5wg); epic metal and lyrics about going into battle with gods by your side? Doesn't get any better than that.

Perhaps you could convert up some honour guard as the Emperor's guards (the red-clad sword-wielding ones in Return of the Jedi)? Pairing them up with a converted Palpatine could make a pretty good Aun'va counts-as.

Back to the topic at hand, when defending a position against a determined relentless enemy I often find Stand My Ground (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nmq1h5cQdk&feature=BFa&list=PLA93FBFFB92366058&lf=plpp_video) by Within Temptation to be rather fitting, amongst other songs and tunes.

That is because Nightwish and The Ride of the Valkyries are both awesome! I haven't heard much of this Ensiferum, so I can't vouch for them, but I can confirm that the other two are!

Speaking of which, when engaging elusive Eldar vessels in the cold void of space (as I briefly referred to in my first post on here I am also a Battlefleet Gothic player), I find The Siren (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPmnVi0GiHk&feature=related) by Nightwish fits rather well.

You know one of these days I'm going to have to convert a Hammerhead to be fitted with a giant extensive sound system and set of speakers to play out background themes for my forces.

I haven't found anything that really hypes me up for Eldar, though the Last of the Mohicans seems to fit the theme.

No.
I feel they can't share the same theme song though even if they form the army together. For CSM I'd pick Psyclon Nine's "Parasitic" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52xoRLh2dWw) and for the Daemons of Slaanesh Genitortures' "Lecher Bitch" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0POZBcCuG0)

Not enough Sabaton!

For my IG Armored, I'm usually fond of Ghost Division (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5V6sxZ8-eg) or Panzer Battallion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ayjVxUC2qDE) depending on my tactics.
For my IG infantry, Into the Fire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWlYDTH48bg) is always a good one, but The Price of a Mile (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbw1pGUhG7Q) is also a favorite, especially if I'm going all-infantry.

White Scars ride into the fires of hell with Hellrider (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wN5RMWPixc)!

My Eldar and DE remain musically challenged, but I would say that Art of War (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMFPvB1HTAk) is a good one for Eldar... ;)
Maybe too "rough" in vocals, but the lyrics themselves are totally Eldar!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdEVk5i0Pf0 - more guardsman goodness. With this clip you can really get the feel of battle withgunfire and rok n roll

Well my SOB army have two themes really. First of all I usually listen to 'Princess of the Night' by Saxon as this is loud, fast and the tune words stick in the mind and I like trains. The other track that often creeps into any play list when doing anything SOB'ish is 'In Trance' by the Scorpions. Not sure why but it just sounds sad and female?

My IG and probably Orks also I like to listen to some stomping army music, something like the Panzerlied, the song from the Battle of the Bulge movie.
