Greetings Citizen. Congratulations! You have been drafted to the Imperial Guard. Due to your Governor's benevolence, you may choose which regiment you join. Choose well, for it may well be that you give your life in service to your God Emperor and your Imperium.

The one thing always mentioned in GW canon fluff about Mordian Iron Guard is how "everbody thinks they're useless because of the uniforms and parading". If you know about this regiment, you know about that bit of fluff. As such, if you see someone post a picture of Mordian Iron Guards and say something similar to that bit of fluff, I can assure you they're in on the joke and you've just look like a faggot for not realising that.

Ruining subtle jokes is fucking annoying and is done by oblivious people with a shit sense of humour. The joke was already made, you don't need to add to it by saying something obvious.

Also, Mordians are based on US marines in their parade uniforms and as such are shit.

Brimlock infantry. Starve, steal or soldier.

>> No.27724718

You're half right. The drill-and-march routine is what they do on the battlefield. You know, the same ones everyone else fights and dies on.

That's right. When the Kriegers are cowering in their trenches, when the Steel Legion are safe in their APCs, when the mud boils and plasma rains from the sky, the Iron Guard march towards the enemy in perfect formation, never breaking step.

Tanith First and Only. Your commisar won't (most likely) shoot you in the back of the head for crapping your pants in front of a Baneblade and you have plot armor. Unless you are a named char. Or just in an unlucky company.

Alternative: Jantine Patricians. Being a douchebag is fun.

>> No.27724942

Why don't Tau just make goggles/impants that give them depth perception?
Then they can apply their powerful ranged weapons into things like lightsabers.

From there, Tzeentch just needs to give them souls and they'll be be able to warp travel and turn the entire galaxy into a Karl Marx theme-park.

>don't have to ever fly on foot
It's mechanised, not armored. The Chimera's just to get you there. Or were you expecting to spend all battle firing out of the top hatch and not taking any objectives?

>you don't slam into the ground at the speed of sound
Nope. Instead, your vehicle either explodes or implodes around you. You're dead either way, at least the Valkyrie can stay out of range.

>> No.27725093

They get plenty of action. Usually by marching directly into the killzone of your nearest enemy fortress, chanting battle hymns and looking fabolous. Quite manly and dumb/grimdark

I was referring to armoured not mechanized, hence saying "and inside a tank at that." Also the Steel Legion in question is from Only War referring to tank aces abilities or something, implying that he is a tank crewman or commander.

Why doesn't 40K have an ODST equivalent anyway? I mean, it's not like it's a unique idea to the Halo franchise. Heinlein did it in 1959, for fuck's sake.

I thought Elysian Drop Troopers were that.

>> No.27728135

I think the closest equivalent would by the Elysian drop troopers. Mostly they don't have any power armor troops because that would bleed over too much into Marines

>> No.27728207

ODSTs don't even use power armor. It's more like lighter Carapace armor with limited EVA capacity.
Not particularly. Elysians use grav-harnesses to jump from Valkyrie-pattern aircraft, not from orbit.

The closest thing were Drop Pod Sisters, noow that I think of it. Which were at one time a thing.

Shock Troopers in Carapace Armor maybe?

Drop pod can be used by normal human, it just doesn't happen in the guard, but I'm sure some mercenaries and RT use them.

>> No.27728374

Not in game they don't, and probably not in significant numbers.

>> No.27728391

Just put me into a mechanised artillery unit or, even better, a logistics corps. I'll be waaay back here, away from the fighting.

Marines kinda do the orbital drop thin. Well, and anyone with a grav-chute can do jumps that make modern HALO drops look tame.

>> No.27728625

>Not in game they don't, and probably not in significant numbers.
From Into the Storm (RT)
Drop Pod
capacity: 10 individual in power armor (which works to cushion the impact) or 10 individual with specialist drop cocoons (which also work to cushion the impact in the absence of power armor)
It's a shitty way for the guard to deploy in any case.

I want to see more diverse plastics. Great coats, mordians, even higher ups like a plastic commissar kit that can be assembled in many ways (I have a small army of just commissar figure, even the highly coveted female commissar from gamesday....98 I think it was? Still trying to get the Commissar Cain figure...one day, ill find one complete for less than five hundred fucking dollars.). Hell, would love a sprue with parts to make some of the abhumans as well. But no. Rambos and Canadians it is, forever.

I suppose if they field mostly valkaries and only 0-1 vendetta it would be nice and fluffy.

But still, that kind of army isn't fun to play against if you don't have/can't get good anti-air
