Default Imperial Guard Heroes

So I have 1 more HQ slot and i am not sure which hero i want to spend it on (and yes i want a hero). I've read stuff about Nork Dreggod(mind spelling), Solarus ... whatever. Can anyone tell me if theres any other heroes out there that i may be able to put into my IG Drop Troop army? I mean i didnt even know there were other doctrines until a few days back ...

You really can't have characters with drop troops. It's not a rule it's just characters have to be in a select army,with those exact doctrines for that force,IE uskar Creed-cadian. I don't think elsiyans have a character but the gw site might.

You could use cornol Schafer, he dos,nt require a spec. regiment.

Non of the characters actually have a SET regiment in game terms. Any doctrines you take will simply not affect them however.

If you're after a really cost effective character try either
Gaunt
Shaffer (sp?)
Deddog (although he is a body guard not a seperate unit)
Lord Solar Macharius

Lord solar should work to. In the codex dosn't it say that it must be a caidin army or a ameragedon,ECT. for the guy. Then they have spec. traits for those forces.

Yes but you can still use him game wise.... just like you can use that Space Wolf character (Russ i think) even though he went missing and was never seen again.

Kinda takes the fluff out of it, especially if you played a campaign ( although you could reaon he was a time lord)

schaefer is the only one that makes sense in an any-regiment force, him or yarrick. gaunt fights with tanith, creed with cads, that desert kahn dude with tallarn. it just doesnt look right having a superhero who doesnt represent the rest of his army.

they are an ineffective waste of points and they still are lame compared to the heros and monsters the badguys use, or a plain old honorifica sarge in a vet squad with a powerfist. i mean come on! schaeffer has a chainsword for feth's sake how tough is that?

so if you use them, it is obviously for character, so i figure you should stay in character with them and their army, right? perhaps its not in the rules, but is is in the cool rules.

Yarrick is pretty mean but they aren't rely that good.
The only good ones in the game are abbandon-C'tan.
