Default starting ig got some questions!

OK, I'm starting ig and I'm not sure which regiment to use.

This is a list of the regiments I've got my eye on any questions about them, in no particular order:

Valhallens
Who are these guys, GW don't give a description?

vallarns

I quite like these guys, but the models are so expensive, 25 for a set of ten! what are these like to play with?

Cachacans
I like these and have some of the old modals!

steal legion
I love the models, and my bro plays orks!

These are the armies I am most interested in, are these mentioned in the codex alot? Also, do stats vary between regiments?

Stats are all the same, all guardsmen no matter what planet/regiment they are from are going to have the same stats. Really the only differences are going to be in the over all appearance/fluff of you army. As for picking one (if your going for fluff), pick one that suits your needs and build an army around their archtype ie: Tallarn (pretty sure you ment these guys) will be really mobile with some out flankers, Catachan will be more CC oriented (or as CC as guard can be), Steel legion will pretty much be mech with lots of tanks, and chimeras, no idea on valhallens i just know they are winter war specialists.

As for cost, the catachans will easily be the cheapest as they are pretty much all plastic (minus some special chars you might want). The rest will be about the same, as you will be getting metal minis and they arnt cheap (though rest of assured death korps will always cost more ^^). If you are looking into tallarn check on some of the stuff on forge world, they have some pretty cool models for heavy weapon teams and an alternative rough riders.

The Valhallans are a well known regiment, they're from the planet Valhalla, an ice world. The Valhallans are most commonly known as 'Ice Warriors'. I guess it's because of their 'immunity' to the cold/ice. :P

Do you mean Tallarns? If you like them, but you find them expensive (as they already are being metal models!) you could always try to convert some!

Again, you mean Steel Legion, right? As your bro plays orks, why not collect these guys? As some of the Sergeant models carry Ork Heads! And they are most notably known to fight Orks, you may of heard of the Armageddon Wars?

I think some of these Regiments are mentioned, maybe to say who they are, where they come from, and perhaps mentioning some of their respective Characters, which you could have in your army!

And no, the stats do not vary between Regiments, you just need to use the 5th Ed Imperial Guard Codex in order to field a Regiment/Army.

[spoiler]
Its because they live on an ice world... underground, in tunnels, their entire planet is basically an ice cube with a warmer centre. Caused by their planet being knocked out of orbit by a huge comet.
