Default Death Korp of Krieg

I started building my second IG army which is Death Korp of Krieg. My problem is which codex do I use the forgeworld or standard IG codex?

If you want to play in tournaments, and make it easy on people in friendly games: the IG codex.

All you have to do is use the forgeworld models as the units in the IG codex. It's pretty simple.
In Apoc games, though, there's nothing stopping you from using the forgeworld one. It's just that your standard gamer and standard tournaments are going to use the normal dexes.

Since IG is the base codex, you should use that if you plan on playing with most players. FW codices are generally not used in tournaments (as far as I know, anyway) or play without advance permission.

Also, the current IG codex has a lot of great ways to build mechanized infantry.

Friendly games, sure, you can use it since it is a legit army. But real tourney and stuff, heck no.

The new IG codex has official rules for many of the FW vehicle models.

For example, all the FW IG artillery variants and Leman Russ variants have rules, as does the Valkyrie.

The Death Korps infantry themselves simply count as normal infantry - you can always use FW models instead of GW ones as long as the rules are from the codex.

Ok, sounds good to me ;D

I'm planning on to make my Death Korp Mechanized. I'm going to include some standard IG vehicles and FW vehicles (Only in a friendly game).

The FW models are fine as long as the rules appear in Codex: IG. So you can use your Manticore, Colossus, etc.

The ones that do not appear there (titans, vultures, the salamander vehicles, etc) need opponent's permission.
