Default What do you think of the army: Death Korps of Krieg?

Well, i was recently on forge world, and i saw the new models coming out soon for the IG and it was none other then, Death Korps of Krieg, well, i have never played a guard army, but, after seeing those models, i know now that i am gonna have to get some of those models and get into IG, i just never thought the cadians or catachens looked that good, the vostroyans had me swayed, but the Death Korps toppled me over, i just want to know what you think of them.

thanks ;D

They are the most amazing things ever! They are the perfect guardsmen, the only problem is they are something like $70 American/10 men. :'( Too much for me. I started 40k with IG, but swayed to Tau- these guys have me thinking second thoughts.

I've been waiting for them for the longest time. I'm thinking a squad a month for me.

They are deeply cool. Unfortunately I'm already commited to an all-FW Elysian army, so they're out of the question.

While I am also considering doing a smaller DK army, I also have to finish off my Elysian list.


So you realize what you are getting into when you play an IG army. I was use to playing my Marine save when I started playing my Tau. And to let you know, it was hard to see my Fire Warriors go down to heavy bolters, auto cannons and anything Str 6 and above.

So be aware of the IG save. ( I am, my kroot have not real save unless they are in the woods ) The FW drop very easy to most medium to heavy weapons. Those AP4 weapons suck.

So the IG save is pretty much non existant to most weapons out there.

But the Elysians are awesome but I really look forward to getting some DK

They are incredible. I was about to go all Steel Legion but then FW introduced those. I have two Steel Legion heavy weapons units, but i figure i can just convert them. $70 is a lot, but i must try!!! ;D

They are awesome models. And if I had enough money, I would totally get some. But for now, I'm going to stick with my Catachans.

The DKoK models are excellent, if only they weren't only from FW, they are so expensive to get, does anyone know of a moddeling guide to making DKoK
