Default The Guard Poll, v.2

Alright, this is a reprisal of the "The Guard Poll" by Walsy which was locked for incompleteness by Wargamer. Basis is this: Which type of Guard is considered to be better by the Generals of TO.

My personal vote must go to stormtroopers. I love the idea of a small, hard-hitting force that can deploy flexibly, but I cannot stand Space Marines as they are too god-like. I'm in the process of building a Stormtrooper army based around the force from Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade.

(p.s. I also love the Arbites, but don't know where I should post army lists or tactics questions... any ideas?)

Arbites generally go in Witchhunters.

I really like my mechanized storm trooper army. I'd say the worst one on there is heavy infantry. Compare a guardsman with carapace with a storm trooper. For two points you get BS4 ld. 8, better sergeant options, the ability to take a chimera, two special weapons (I usually prefer special weapons over heavy in my infantry), frag and krak grenades, targeters, AP5, and the awesome Kasrkin models.

That is very true.. if I were to ever wnat to make a heavy infantry force it would be done solely with stormtroopers.

I move that this poll be closed for incompleteness. It doesn't include the "sentinel rush" army or the "ogryn assault" army...I'm sure we can all think of some others that have been overlooked ;D

Anyway, I went with mechanized. Chimeras kick some serious tail. They provide mobility to a pretty static army, mount 2 heavy weapons and a pintle, and have better armor than rhinos.
