Default What made me join the guard

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Winter Assault

I got to know W40K through the Dawn of War series and by far, the Imperial Guard from Winter Assault inspired me and contribute to my decision to take up the Eagle.

Soon, I begin reading the various IG novels and my love of IG grew even more.

This is the finishing blow. The youtube vid that truly inspired me to become an IG: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1zkuZ1bcr4

I got to say the Cadian models did it for me. I just love the fluff and playstyle too.

I played The Lost and the Damned, and they suddenly became illegal. So I started using my mutants with Renegades rules from the Siege of Vraks, expanded the army with some Imperial vehicles... Et voila!

What made me join the ranks of the Emperor... Death Korps of Krieg!

The models are just so awesome! They allso make a big hole in the wallet so this is going a long-time project.

DoW:Winter Assault did me in too. Heck my Cadian army will be a mechanized version of the Cadian 412th Shock Troops Regiment complete with General Sturnn ;D

For me its about the variety in the models, from the 2nd ed. Catachan to the Mordians models, gaurd have a flavor for everyone.
