If you were to join the Imperial Guard

...and had a choice of specialty, what would you choose and why?


For me, I'd try to get in a Leman Russ, Vanquisher variant. Leman Russ tanks just always interested me. I think it'd be a hell of a ride to command one into battle.

A close second would be a heavy bolter team, so I can get stuck in for the Emperor..lol

Personally, I'd like to be an Ogryn, no idea why. Either that or a veteran, the obvious reason of rank and knowledge.

I would be a stormtrooper. I mean, who can't resist that cool wargear and the glory of being the finest in the IG? After that, I might be a tank commander for a Hellhound if I were a pyromaniac. The third option would be a ratling. You can avoid bullets pretty well and still be a great sniper

Yeah but if you were a ratling you'd be living in a world of farts...I dont think I could take it...

I certainly couldn't, though missing bullets and being able to snipe others does sound pretty sweet.....

An Inquisitor could still execute you!

I would be part of a Destoyer Tank Hunter crew, "Tank Sniper".
