Default Favourite IG special character?

As the title above reads, which Imperial Guard special character is your favourite? (Rules-wise, model-wise, background-wise, etc)

My favourite is easily Commissar Yarrick: he pretty much embodies everything that is heroic about the Imperial Guard, and his background absolutely rocks (he's a guy who the SPACE MARINES hold in high esteem). Model wise, he's so-so (I'd personally model that Ork power klaw a little bigger), but he still radiates pure awesome.

Second place goes to Ibram Gaunt, simply because I'm a big Gaunt's Ghosts fan. What about you guys?

I like Colour Sgt. Jarran Kell, Creed's bodyguard. He just seems like a huge badass. I can imagine him just beating the shit out of everyone on the field.

Maximmilian Weissman.

He is just so bad-ass. Oh and he gets a Baneblade, too. That's pretty tough to beat.

+++ Creed makes me laugh because he looks just like Churchil but he is not my favorite. Really I have two favorites, Schaffer and kell because both look really heroic.+++

Ok,

For fluff: Colonel Commissar Ibram Gaunt, why? The books are awesome, what else can I say?

For games: Colonel Schaffer, why? The penal Legion squads seem to put Veterans to shame, plus they have access to some of the best weapons available. Plus the Hobby opportunities for them are limitless.

There's alot of them I like actually.

-Gaunt, because well, he's fething Ibram Gaunt!
-Nork had that great bit of fluff where he drags that chimera wreck with the medikit inside.
-Sly Marbo is just plain badass
-Strakken also had a fun bit of fluff in a WD, plus he actually uses a shotgun.
-Grease Monkey of the Last Chancers. Ok he barely counts, but the nutcase took a bloody grav tank for a joy ride!

Guard really do have some of the best special characters

Catachan Colonel "Iron Hand" Straken. The guy's just plain mental. :P

I read Straken's introductory fluff (or rather, monolgue) in the old Catachan Codex. "Mendez, stop whining and CHARGE, DAMMIT! What? You got your leg blown off? Frag that, you have another, don't you?" He is officially a bad mofo.

Similarly, I read some of Gav Thorpe's Last Chancer stories, and I'm stuck with the mental image of Schaeffer calmly wading through a sea of Hormagaunts, hacking them down left and right and not even blinking as he does so. That's not bravery; that's a disdainful refusal to even acknowledge fear's existence.
