Default Special Forces...

Ok...

In my guard armies, i'm doing a smaller, more elite force, mounted in either chimeras or Valks (playtesting the Mech version at the mo)

and i was wondering... 'cos i like storm-troopers so much, what modern special forces should i model 'em on?

the ones i like are...
SAS ('cos i'm a brit )
SEALS ('cos they're kinda cool)
Spetsnaz (FOR THE MOTHERLAND!)

and my mind's gone blank, cant think of any more...

just wondering if you think modelling storm-troopers on modern spec ops seems like a cool idea? , which seems the best from the above list? (dunno about Spetsnaz even though they're my favourite... always though of Cadians as a kinda 'western' force... :/


feel free to suggest others

oh, and cheers for your input guys

What about the Australian SAS, or the United States Marine Corps Recon teams.

AFEUR
GSG9

Both are relatively unknown compared to the more popular ones (though GSG9 sees many fans too).

You know you want to do something Russian - it is just so appropriate for the Guard

Actually, a lot of the guard range is based on various periods of the German military.

I can certainly offer some help with translation/ transliteration if wanted - I'm currently studying it at uni, and have some time free.
