I hate to be the one to put a damper on things, but this idea can be very offensive to alot of people. Promoting an army who slaughtered millions upon millions of innocents will be seen as disrespectful to say the least. Tread carefully...

It's only fair to warn him then.

Well first as Ryu said some people should may be offended by this. Yet if he still insits on doing this army then you should use Hitler as a count as hero for Creed or someone else.

I think Herman Von Strab is based on Hitler. Good luck with that anyway.

the first question you should ask your friend is, why does he want a guard army based on the nazi's? is it for the uniforms and camo's used? is it for the fighting stlye (and im talking army here, not politics)? or is it just to piss people off?
As been stated some people will be offended by the idea, and he will probaly find any gw store will refuse to let him use the army in store, same as some tournys.
also will be based on the standard german army,( the wermarct, i think thats the spelling, my germans crap), or will be based more on the SS side of the german army (going by the thread titel of nazi army, i say it sounds like the ss side of things)
it the army is going to be based on the standard german army, then make sure you dont use any swastica's or SS runes on any units, and may use a stylelised cross for the main symbol, just to make it look a bit more diferent.
but i strongly surgest you ask you friend why he wants that theame for his army, before you start work on it, becourse if its just to piss people off then you could get some shit for making the army for him.
and im not saying dont do it, just make sure he has valid reasons for it

oh and ps, dont ask this question over on dakadaka, as you will get some serious grife for marely typeing the word nazi in the thread title

One of my mates has an axis guard army and it has turned out very well for him, his trick, paint up the whole army as you would for a full blown SS gig, but he only painted half of the insignia, so it looked like an s. If you didn't like it, he's still safe, and if u did, well u can tell how awesome it was, for it was magnificently painted and balanced, pretty much WWII in the 41st millenium!

It's Wehrmacht by the way Fynn.

Again, tread carefully. We have had Nazi discussions on this forum before, almost always sparked from someone doing an army based on them. Not a good idea to post this kind of thing. It has had people banned.

Tactically speaking, Hitler didn't fight, so I'm not sure why you would want stats for him. It's like trying to make stats for the Emp in his current state, ignoring his psyker abilities of course, not that Hitler had them, more like he had psycho abilities ;). Maybe do his tank aces and use the IG equivalent or something. Have a look at the IG characters and see who suits what role.

Anyway, good luck, tread carefully.
