I love Death Korps... not really because of fluff or anything. Just because theyre models are amazing. I would love to feild a deathcorps army w/ no plastics out or even metal i cant. For my budget Cadians best but if i could have anything it would definately be Death Korps.

PS Mordian Iron Guard look coo too but at 5 buks a model... uh... no can do.

Death korps, definetly. Steel legion comes in close to, as do valhallans. Then its vossies, plastic cadians, mordians, metal cadians, elysians, tallaran, plastic catachan, preatorian and metal catachan last.

As to your poll:
Vostroyans, not vostrians
Valhallan, not vallaran
Tallaran, not tarriran
Mordian, not mordan

You also missed out: Tanith, Praetorians, Steel Legionnaries, Elysians and Catachan.

Others have wrote about how the other metals personalize their gaurd, but I think its just the opposite. I can paint all the cadain to look alike but the slight modeling differences such as poses and positions make them look rank and file and different at the same time. ( I use a standard cadian 8th color scheme ) And I like their fluff.

As you can probably tell from my avatar and sig, Death Korps are my favorite. I love the fluff, and now, the models are awesome as well. Valhallens and old school Cadians tie for the second with Tallarn coming in third.
But seriously, a Guardsman, I'm willing to bet, could a) outshoot me, b) give me the beating of my life, and c) shove more squad-based tactics down my throat than I'd ever care to digest. Guard are hard, hard men. Whether or not GW's inconsistent, Marine-worshipping fluff keeps with that, mkay?

Real men fight in tanks!

I think my favorites would have to be the Kanak Skull Takers for looks followed close by the Vostroyans. I play cadian thought, cheapest and most well stocked at my GW
Im addicted to Runescape and I'm proud of it!!!!!!<br /><br /><br />me likee de chocolate!!!<br />
I get so sick of abusive little retards who think they're god's gift to the world, and are in dire need of being spanked with a steel bat for a few hours.

Space Marines may be lauded as the ultimate warriors, but it takes a real man to walk with carapace armor and a hell guninto battle, then do their job for them without any genetic hoo-ha

Death Korp, these guys are so cool, they are a bit weird, celebrating their funerals on the day they join the regiment
All time is an illusion, lunch time doubly so

Oops. Wrong one.
