Icon for the emperor or for chaos?

Im planning on getting an expansion for my IG army(the battalion box) and am stuck with on whether I should dedicate the army to Chaos or go and fight for the Emperor. The reason for this is because i got a Praetorian Guard Captain who(if you look close enough) looks like hes possessed by a Daemon.

Entirely up to you.

I went for a "Neutral" Guard army.
They still hate Chaos just as much as the loyal Guard do, but they refuse to fight for the Imperium and hate them just as much as they do Chaos.

...so you mean like the Danakkan's? I mean they managed to get Orks to work for them.
But I was asking because i had already considered a neutral army but that didn't sound as fun as a chaos or Imperium based one but now I can't decide.

Chaos!!!

Really, it's all personal preference but Chaos offers a wealth of conversion opportunities, crazy paint schemes, and uniqueness. I have only seen 1 Traitor Guard army in over 10 years!

Besides, do you really want to bend the knee to a rotting corpse? Nurgle may be rotting but at least he's lively!

ya i know, i REALLY wish that "Codex: Traitor Guard" would come out.

if you can grab Codex: Eye of Terror, then you can write up a traitor guard list - its legit too...only you need to also purchase the IG dex as well...which is the easy part

be careful, if your a serious tournament player (or plan to be) always ask the tourny organizer if you cant take them, some will not recognize it but you will have the codex, so in theory you should win...just be careful.

& in general that is always a good practice for this army no matter what.

best of luck

Unfortunately the EOT codex has not been usable for several years. I Bought it to do traitor guard also. However i use the current guard codex for my traitors. Fantasy ogres with big weapons as hw teams. A stand in chaos marine champ(khorne) for straken. Chaos marauders and empire flagellants mixed with cadians,catachans and necromunda models for troopers. Orks and zombies to provide hordes of mutants(conscripts). The best part is when an apoc game comes up I line up my traitor guard alongside my chaos marines and all is sweet.

I bought a box of thosw wargames factory minis the other day. Those greatcoat models are excellent. I use them as stormtroopers or vets with carapace armor.

According to LUKEVALENTINE's test i am a diciple of khorne. Figures really.
