I've been reading Imperioul Armour a lot lately, and it's inspired me to start a DKoK-themed Imperial Guard thread. Other themes welcome too, of course.

Anyone have a larger size of pic related? My scan is pretty crappy

Well, I'm not concerned with tournament play so much, I guess. I don't know, it's the "feel" of the army I care about, and that's probably just going to involve a lot of soul searching. Hmmm, though I wonder, is a siege regiment really viable? Any experienced IG players able to tell me if you tend to move your artillery pieces around much? I'm thinking that static artillery could be a major Achilles heel

Very much so, thank you, TWSP

I've got a bone to pick with the Death Korps. So the big appeal of the guard is that they're just men like you and me and not superhuman monsters, right? That kind of gets messed up when you introduce flash-cloned killing machines like the Korps. They're not really IG, they're just weak Space Marines

This made me lul IRL. One of those, "Pahaha" laughs, too. I skipped IA4 and went right to 5, since I wanted to get into the Krieg books, so I only know about them from IA3. To be fair though, while the DKoK specializes in attrition warfare, but the Elysians are dropping into active warzones, surrounded on all sides, totally without support, and left to accomplish their goals. Both are very conducive to heavy casualties.

Where does it say this? I just finished reading IA5's campaign summary and the only mention of commissars in action with the DKoK is of several of them shooting Kriegers as they tried to TURN AND RUN. The DKoK troops then murdered several commissars in retribution, in order to flee back to their own lines.
