View Full Version : What troop choise would you be?

27-03-2010, 23:39
I don't know why, but I want to be Guardsman :D

Maybe because of this fact.

27-03-2010, 23:43
Id be a grot.

Dasqueek-Master Assassin
27-03-2010, 23:45
I think Id have to go with necron warrior....

I AM a 100,000 year old robot that runs on super uber rapey sub atomic enery. Im tougher than a box of double fried sqig nuggets, and you just woke me up from the longest, and best, nap ever. I'm super cranky...

27-03-2010, 23:55
Conscript, including not being able to hit the broad side of the barn with a gun. But that could only happen if the IG has less recruiting standards than the german army or they hand out bionic eyes for free.

27-03-2010, 23:59
Nob with a power klaw.

If I'm going into a battle, I want 29 fine lads around me who will function as ablative bullet stoppers.

28-03-2010, 00:12
I would like to say I'm a T-sons Aspiring Sorcerer, but I'm probably closer to a Nurgling.

28-03-2010, 00:16
Knowing my luck: A Guardsmen

28-03-2010, 00:28
noise marine.

28-03-2010, 00:34
wouldn't mind being a vulture pilot/gunner :) or an elysian

28-03-2010, 00:35
I would be a Veteran Squad Sergeant leading a stealth sniper unit to act pre battle to take out leaders of the enemy force.

28-03-2010, 00:40

All you would do is give some random guy a consolidation move. Most likely a small child with a broomstick that sweeping advance'd your whole unit. No pun intended. Actually, maybe a little bit.

On a serious note, being a Dire Avenger would be pretty cool. Hopefully for Biel-Tan

Being a Khorne Berzerker would help sate my bloodlust, plus I get to run around with a chainaxe and bunny ears; anyone survivng the battle would be afraid of rabbits for life, and that's good enough for me.

Watching someone walk into a pet shop and having to hide in the corner muttering something about murderous bunnies until the men in white coats arrive would be hilarious!

Dasqueek-Master Assassin
28-03-2010, 00:44
Now I want to see a chaos army thats a bunch of guys with bunny ears and the rabbit from monty python as the greater deamon...

28-03-2010, 00:57
chaos marine cultists yes I know they do not exist in current eddition.

28-03-2010, 01:08
scout with sniper rifle. just sit around in a tree all day and snipe the unfortunate guardsmen taking a ****

IG veteran with a lever action shotgun and carrying the demo charge!!

28-03-2010, 01:23
Bloodletter FTW.

28-03-2010, 01:46
IG veteran with a lever action shotgun and carrying the demo charge!!

Isn't that basically a suicide run? Then again Im just a cultist with a las pistol and close combat weapon for the glory of SLANESH

28-03-2010, 02:21
Blood Angels assault marine. I get to fly around hacking things to bits. And if I succumb to the rage... well I get to fly around and hack things even Harder.... lol

28-03-2010, 02:26
Grey hunter sounds a lot like me.

Jack of all trades, master of none. And constantly feeling a bit irratated.

Red Beard
28-03-2010, 02:53
Deathwing Terminator (Its a troop choice ;))


Grey Knight maybe?


probably a guardsmen .. i was in the Army after all. :)

28-03-2010, 03:00
A dire avenger.
99.99% of the time, you're in a utopia.

Then a Necron warrior. In the 40K universe, no emotions at all seems like a good thing...

Then everyone else.

Shadow Wulfen
28-03-2010, 03:06
A Blood Claw, because running around causing lots of trouble and being reckless about it sounds like a good laugh.

28-03-2010, 03:06
A Tervigon...

I get to be a mother! :D

28-03-2010, 03:08
That dead Guard. You know that one guy in that one battle on that one planet next too all of the other ones.:)

28-03-2010, 03:13
A squad of Necron warriors. I always wanted to be 10 to 30 robots intent on eradicating all life.

28-03-2010, 03:15
Witch Hunter Retributor

I dont really like to get my hands dirty and I think their outfits are stylish yet intimidating. I would have gone with Dark Reaper but the seemingly mandatory helmets are a no-go and there isnt enough variations in their color palet.

28-03-2010, 03:43
A Grey Knight, without all the psycho indoctrination I would just go crazy in the 41st millenium.

28-03-2010, 03:44
If they caught me?

Penal Legionnaire.

28-03-2010, 04:33
An Eldar Ranger. I get all the bonuses of being an eldar, with out the rigours of having to take a path since like an exodite, I'd be a hardworking traveler.

Seems like a cool way to have an adventure, just visit the exodite worlds and if things get to grimdark for me then I go back to my craftworld.

28-03-2010, 05:12
An Imperial Navy Aircrewman. It is what I did in the USN (NAC/RS), when I was not jumping out into frigid waters.

Most likely I would get disillusioned with the whole thing and end up as part of a Blood Pact Death Brigade though (probably the guy forced to use the Plasma Gun or carry the Demo Charge).

28-03-2010, 05:31
I take mine back. I want to be a genestealer cult truck driver! I might actually qualify for that!

28-03-2010, 06:22
Guardsman with a melta-gun. These are always the last ones to be removed as casualties so I'd stand more of a chance at survival.

28-03-2010, 06:27
Guardsman with a melta-gun. These are always the last ones to be removed as casualties so I'd stand more of a chance at survival.

Or Id like to be Platoon Commander

28-03-2010, 07:06
A Daemonette......:shifty:

....what...somebody needed to say it..:shifty:

28-03-2010, 07:12
A dedicated transport. Vroom!

28-03-2010, 07:13
noise marine.

Yeah...sign me up as a Gwarmarine too!

28-03-2010, 07:17
Ork in a deff dred. What would be better than being incased in a 12 foot tall stompy doom mech? Hopefully with a rokkit and a skorcha, the rokkit just for fun times outside of combat "oops I blew up another trukk! Who's gunna stop me, you? didn't think so." And the skorcha to make my enemies "do da burny danse," on account of it's funny.

Failing that a guardsman with a plasma gun. My life is gunna be short, but damn is it gunna be sweet. "Hey guys did you see that? I totally melted that plague marine! Is it hot on this ice world or is it just me?"

Or maybe a tau fire warrior. I'd much prefer to be a crisis suit pilot, but everyone's gotta start somewhere right? Plus tau have snazzy uniforms and plasma weapons that don't melt your face off.

28-03-2010, 07:26
If I had a choice, probably a simple tactiacal squad marine, but I want a heavy bolter damnit:D

28-03-2010, 10:52
I think I change my own choise to Ratling.

Little is sexy.

28-03-2010, 11:41
Chaos Space Marine, better "career prospects", unless you get turned into spawn that is.

28-03-2010, 11:44
I think I change my own choise to Ratling.

Little is sexy.
Too right :)
Guardsmen are IG's bitch. They will and have to do all they are ordered and they go down by the thousands. No TY.
I wanna be a Death Jester... Doing awesome compicated plays, wearing a uber lookin' coat, messing people up with my shrieker cannon....sweet :P
Other than that, fire dragon, a warlock, or a blood ravens librarian lol

28-03-2010, 11:53
^None off which are Troops choices to my knowledge.

28-03-2010, 11:56
A Warhound Princeps in Legio Metalica would be perfect. But in fact I'll be a humble tech-servitor or an enginseer who would dream all the time on the possibility of driving a Titan.

28-03-2010, 11:57
Yeah I know, I didn't put much thought into that post as regarding the actual thread...
Out of all troops choices... A SM Veteran Sergeant with a nice wittle power fist and plasma pistol :)
That or a Ranger.

28-03-2010, 12:34
Daemonette. Its awwwright.

28-03-2010, 12:44
Tau Fire warrior, shooting from distance with pulse rifles and other cool hi-tech equipments...
I would have to serve the ethereals all the time, and I wouldn't have personal goods, almost no private life at all... but hey, I would have been brainwashed since birth by ethereal propaganda so I would desire nothing but to serve the Greater Good! :D

28-03-2010, 12:58
A necron warrior, simply for the fact I'd be able to do authentic live-music performances and quit having to use FX on my vocals when I have the real thing "naturally".

Logarithm Udgaur
28-03-2010, 16:27
Daemonette. Its awwwright.

GD ED for letting me get that reference.

28-03-2010, 17:02
An Eldar guardian. No silly life long conscription, no warrior cults or warrior caste. Leave me alone, I want to water my plants.

28-03-2010, 17:15
Oh if it's still troop choise that you want to keep then I stay Guardsman.

28-03-2010, 17:37
Tac marine.

28-03-2010, 17:43
gotta be a Noise Marine! an old school one with the electric guitar!

28-03-2010, 17:54
If the dice gods have any say, then some sort of squat.

28-03-2010, 18:57
Eldar Pathfinder.

28-03-2010, 23:00
I'd second the eldar ranger idea - travel the galaxy, have adventures, visit strange new worlds, meet random alien races and never have to actually fight in any battles because I'd be an overcosted and suboptimal choice.

Wolf Lord of Croatia
28-03-2010, 23:26
Even though I would probably end up as a IG cannon fodder, I would like to be Gray Hunter of Space Wolves carrying a Bolter and Chainsword. I mean... Is there better chapter to be a part of other then Space Wolves or Salamanders? We fight and win by day and we drink and sing by the night! Aint that something, eh?

28-03-2010, 23:30
A Broodlord. I get to skulk, shred, and boss around many-limbed underlings.

This is even more true if Broodlords have totally replaced Patriarchs in the lore.

29-03-2010, 00:09
A necron warrior i would actually be able to do the "robot"

29-03-2010, 00:15
I second the Deffdread... alright so I'll be sligthly insane and never able to feel anything but rage... kind of like now... well, no biggie, strap me in.

Captain DD
29-03-2010, 01:01
Isn't that basically a suicide run? Then again Im just a cultist with a las pistol and close combat weapon for the glory of SLANESH

Can be. But I REALLY want to see the whites of their eyes!! All over the ground.

29-03-2010, 02:16
Leman russ commander....but im gonna hang outside the coupla with my chain sword screaming as we charge the enemy (i hope we dont hit a bump)

(its a troop choice in the forgeworld lists lol)

Cromwell Haarlock-Leth
29-03-2010, 03:17
Some kind of cultist in a Nurgle worshiping army...

Or a Necromundian Delaque ganger press-ganged in the IG.

29-03-2010, 03:32
I'd have to go with either Eldar pathfinder or a Dire Avenger Exarch.
Or, not an in game model would be a Eldar Corsair.

Knowing my luck?
I'd be the Guardsman issued "Blow up Bob", the Plasmagun who's only successful kills has been the gunner that carries it.

30-03-2010, 15:04
I like a challenge so I would like to be a guardsman. I would like to get the opportunity to get my hands on some random space marines power armour while he was in bed and wear it myself. After donning said armour I would then infiltrate the ranks of the astartes and see how long I could get away with it for. Should be a laugh that. The fact that I am six foot and eleven stone would probably result in my efforts being especially pathetic but like I said I like a challenge so I would put my heart into it and hope for the best. You never know...

30-03-2010, 17:02
IG veteran with a lever action shotgun and carrying the demo charge!!

Shouldn't you be Duel wielding those lever action shotguns?

Oh Subtle MW2 references :p

I'd personally like to be a Space marine scout, but in reality, I'm the guy who gets executed by the commisar for sneezing.

30-03-2010, 17:47
Grey Hunter. First we fight, then we drink, and then there's some fighting, and then FEAST. Followed by more fighting and drinking, feats of strength, bragging while drinking, fighting while bragging, and finally fighting while drinking with a 50% chance of feasting.

30-03-2010, 21:18
mmm...chances are I would be a gaurdsman, assuming I can still smoke.

30-03-2010, 21:53
Mega armored Nob. I get to be stompy and krump stuff while hanging out with my boys.

30-03-2010, 23:08
If the dice gods have any say, then some sort of squat.

There goes the clock again. Remember 'Just say No to saying to that word that peoples says'.

30-03-2010, 23:14
Fire Warrior.

They can blow up titans (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warhammer_40,000:_Fire_Warrior) don't'cha know?

In reality, a guardsman. I can shoot moderately well and I'm good at taking orders so I'd be better than a conscript, but not by much.

31-03-2010, 00:56
I'd either be a Dark Angels Deathwing termie, or a grot just so i could laugh at how funny I am...

31-03-2010, 02:44
I'd probably be an Ork Kommando. Stealfy 'n all un-Orky like, crumpin' some 'eads in da shadows wif me fayvrit choppa!

Barring that, I'd say I'd BE the Plasma Gun. Everytime you'd shoot me, I'd blow up in your face out of spite.

31-03-2010, 03:37
with any form of luck a guardsman, and with any real luck a guardsman from a good regiment, like cadia, tallarn, catachan, steel legion, vostroyan, volpone, jantine partricians, an armoured regiement.

31-03-2010, 04:04
Biker nob.

31-03-2010, 04:12
If I got to choose: Space Marine all the way, ideally a Space Wolf (Good times and free grog!). Superhuman genetically modified to kill stuff? Yes please.

Barring that, a Commissar in a platoon command squad. Probably the best life expectancy a member of the guard can get, considering you're one of the two greatest threats to a guardsman's life on the battlefield (the other being the enemy, of course).

If we're going off actual, real life combat ability? Probably a conscript. Maybe a chimera pilot, since I've probably got the technical knowledge of your average Mechanicus bottom feeder.

31-03-2010, 04:26
I would love to be the Emperor's champion :P

but for troops I would go either with fire warrior or guardsman.

herald of kairos
31-03-2010, 05:24
oh oh can i go back an edition and be a last chancer.
now there was a troop choice, whatever gun i want i'll just filch from some other poor fool who's then probably shot for misplacing it by there commisar as i'm led into battle by probably the meanest son of a b***h in the galaxy and then gets let go afterwards(hopefully):evilgrin:

31-03-2010, 05:45
Crimson Fists Sternguard trooper. When life gives me lemons, I give life the business end of my .75 caliber toolbox. I quickly find out that there are very few problems in life that a combi-melta can't fix.

Bingo the Fun Monkey
31-03-2010, 08:50
Ratling Sniper. A tall one.

31-03-2010, 09:27
I'd want to be a space rat, but sadly that's not possible... (sad face)

...a Soul Drinker chosen marine with a meltagun. Take that you loyalist marine rhinos!

31-03-2010, 09:51
I'd be a Tau Firewarrior.

I get to fight, then go home to my wife and kids and watch the Ethereal Approved(TM) Trid programs.

Plus, I get a gun that hyperaccelerates an unstable core and a general that doesn't want to send me on a suicide run, bay-bee!

And I get hooves.
