Where Are You Imperial Guard Players Located


Ok I have added a poll to the blog, going to try something new out.  Something that I always find interesting and cool is that this hobby is so widespread and enjoyed around the world.  So that is the question of the day.  Where are you IG players located?  Feel free to respond in the comments as well and you can add your region/city and not just your city.  For example I am in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, USA.

I find that certain areas and regions tend to have favorite armies.  Here Tau and Chaos are very common.  So answer the poll and answer below.  Muster for the Guard.  What world are your from?

  1. Hey,

    I am from Germany. Right now I'm located in Charlotte NC. Here in Charlotte I saw a couple Tau and Nids players.
    The gaming community in my hometown in Germany is much bigger. And I think most people play different armys. Before I left I had to fight a lot of Taudar and so on.

    Cheers

    1. Have you checked out Victoria Miniatures? Great Praetorians on there.

      Here are mine

      Here they are in store

      They really are an improvement over the old 40k ones in terms of availability and the shipping is great!

    2. I am a Praetorian man myself and have been for the last 17 odd years!
      Happily, I live up the road from Victoria Lamb (of Victoria Miniatures), in Adelaide, South Australia.

    3. I'm sitting on about 200 of the GW Praetorians, a bunch of their Heavy Weapons Teams, several Chimeras, Leman Russ, and other IG tanks, as well as the old plastic Stormtroopers with the berets (I think they could look cool painted up in Praetorian red and blue). I've been hoarding bits to convert Praetorian Rough Riders. I have the old Macharius figure that will look cool all painted up in gold. And I have ordered stuff from Victoria Miniatures (they have a lot of great stuff). I intend to use a few of their Pith Heads to make a "counts-as" Creed among others. I've also been eying up their Penal Guard models.

      Reading this blog has me pretty stoked to finally paint up the lot.

      Nice army and blog, Jayden.

      Col. Ackland, very convenient for you!

  6. From Tokyo.
    Here, we have a very interesting environment with lot of different armies.
    Strange Fact, there is almost no vanilla Space Marines, I only saw once a Raven Guard player. (SW, BA are present)
    There are some pure IG players but a lot of players ally with IG for Vendetta and some artillery or Hydra.
    Especially GK, so there is a lot of painted black tank here.

  10. Germany - Nordrheinwestfalen - Münster, many Tau and Eldar, like Angel-the_Fang said, despite the fact that i am on the other end of germany.

  11. Nyköping Sweden, Seems to be alot of taudar and necrons arond, most of the IG players have bagged their guard in favor of something with a little more OP

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm from Paderborn, Germany.

    There are very few guard players around to hold the line, most play loyalist marines, Tau or Eldar. Or the flavor of the month of course.
    Funny thing though, the few enthusiasts who still play guard as their primary army all still have projects to keep them busy.
    Be it conversions, pure tank companies or stuff like that, there's always something to expand, unlike the "I have 1000 gaunts and 50 MCs, I'm done" of other armies.

  18. Brisbane Australia. Great Tourny and casual scene. Handful of Guard players. Quite a number of players command SM armies but most tournies and groups have a good mix of other armies. My casual group commands, sm, neuron, tau, eldar, GK, DE and hopefully soon a bid player :D!

  20. Monroe, Wisconsin- I have Steel Legion (and several other armies also). A friend who lives in Dakota, Illinois plays Cadians exclusively. There are a handful of Guard players who play in the tournament scene of Madison, Wisconsin also. Tau, Eldar, Daemons, and Necrons are currently the most popular at the moment.

  34. Utrecht, Netherlands. Been collecting guard since 2nd edition, mostly Cadian models nowadays that I use as Jopall Indentured Squadrons in cityfight camouflage. Great blog, big thanks for all your efforts!

    1. What models do you use for the Jopall?

    2. I convert Cadians, I remove all shoulder pads and try to make them look like real veterans, using Elysian and renegade forge world bits, autoguns, gun straps made from green stuff, non-helmet heads, catachan command squad bits. I also make the housing of their lasguns shorter to make them look more like assault rifles. I really like the fluff for the Jopall, fighting to pay off their debt to their government. So I figured individual troopers would use all sorts of non-regulated equipment so that they can kill the enemy faster, thus paying their debt faster. I read somewhere in the fluff that once a trooper is considered to have paid his debt, he is allowed to return to Jopall to live as a free man.

    3. The only time I have read about them other than a picture in WD or the IG Codex was in the book Redemption Corps. The air crews assigned to the storm trooper were Jopall Indentured. The pilot was upset because the Commissar had the tallies of the kills the aircrew had made and happened not to be in the area. I would love to see some pics.

    Most armies are well represented, and there are very few who play net or cheese lists. Those that do don't play them in casual games. I haven't seen any true Grey Knights players, though some people take them as allies. There's even a Sisters player.
