ITT: We talk/post about our favorite regiments that need more love.

Why can't we get more stuff about Vostroyans, Mordians, and Tallarns?

When are they gonna make the Vostroyan Command squad available again?

Any ideas how I'd go around a Mordian Iron Guard costume so I can use to cosplay?

Space Aussies are clearly the Ozlandus 'Redbacks'.

But I agree, Space 'Straya need some love, as a planet and a IG regiment.

I read Commissar and Iron Guard.

Iron Guard was a fantastic book, I loved it, the twist was perfect, it felt grimly dark like 40k should feel instead of borderlined like many Black Library books, and above all, it really emphasized the culture and traditions of the Mordian Iron Guard. You never forgot which regiment you were reading about, no sir. I love that author now, and I gained a lot of respect for the Iron Guard.

Commissar was okay, but it was bland. If it weren't for the fact that one central element of the story was based around Vostroyan noble codes, you could have replaced the Firstborn regiment in the novel with just about any other regiment. The author rarely went out of his way to use Vostroyan terminology or to even describe the soldiers or uniforms. Rather disappointing for a diehard Vostroyan fan.

>> No.33484385

I think it'd be cool if there was an Indian Imperial Guard regiment. Like, not Native American, but Indian.

Problem is I know next to nothing about Indians outside of some background history, so I wouldn't know how to make the regiment.

>> No.33484981

Actually, I think the fluff behind this pic is of Vostroyan soldiers charging INTO Tau positions. Apparently the Vostroyan general grabbed the flag and inspired his men into a last charge against the Tau.

Fuckload of Vostroyans charging from the left towards those Tau.

>> No.33485133

>>33485053
I see it the opposite way - see how the Tau are in that ditch down there, below that ledge the Vostroyans are on? I think that was the position they had taken as they tried to surround the Vostroyans to force them to surrender. It's static and it provides some cover, like a WW1 trenchline.

I think the reason the flagcarrier is on that ledge is to inspire the soldiers to keep fighting. He looks like he's sort of in a running position, right? Maybe that's just me.

Are things that exist in the IG, they're just referred to as cavalry. There was this battle report type thing, think it was in Inferno! magazine, it was about Imperial Guard triumphing over orks. Dragoons played a major part in the war.
