Let's roleplay. Your the real General of the army you play, and you have to find a way to get your army to the battle(not transportation). What motivational tools would you use to get your army to the battlefield? This could be benefits, pride, threats, anything.

Well, I just started my first army, Imperial Guard, and I know most IG generals would use Commissars, threats, and "I may be bad, but I'm not 'Xenos' bad." But I think I would try to entice my Infantry with pensions, benefits, maybe take care of loved ones in case of death. You know, that kind of thing.

Look forward to what people have to say.

tell them each and every warrior-borther will be rewerded for fighting and dying in service to the chaos gods to acheive there objective, if they fail to achieve their objective their souls will be feasted on for all eternity by the scavengers of the warp and denyed greater rewards,

i would put a bone on a stick that stretches from their helmets, and that would make them move forward, if they win, they get the bone, if not, they have to eat Lidl brand dog food. (ps, i play space wolves)

Well since my army is Orks, I guess it would be fairly easy for me, I'd promise my lads a good krumpin' against any 'un we'd be fighting, throw in a couple of barrels of Fungus Beer and Stompa/Gargant and I'd be set with a almost endless wave of boyz at my back. Heck, make it a Stompa/Gargant that runs on Fungus Beer!

TBH I'd just say that the Imperial Fists were on the planet/had once touched the planet and warrants an extermination of the populace "just for laughs" 'Nuff said (I play Iron Warriors)

great way to motivate space wolves:

point at the enemy and shout 'THEY HAVE BEER AND THEY DONT WANT TO GIVE US ANY!'

for my marines the 'courage and honour!' stuff should do

for my guard, hmmm. Perhaps not use commisars, but try to appeal to their sense of loyalty to the emperor. actually, commisars is simpler and more reliable

My Imperial Guard Regiment doesn't use Commissars which is allowed because of the unquestionable loyalty to the Aba Aba Mushira, The Most Holy Emperor, his Saint Lord Solar Macharius and their liberators and Lords, the Tribe of Al'rahem. Their spirtual needs and further motivation, boardering on fanatisium, is provided by Priests of the cult of the Redemption. BURN & PURGE!

I would change this slightly by saying I'm not Xenos bad, I'm worse:biggrin:

my eldar would also be easy be telling them we can all join the path of celebration after the war

You'd bankrupt the imperium doing that!!!! That is if you play the IG the way they should be played, with only your command squads standing at the end of a battle. If this isn't happening, you're doing it wrong ;)

I'd get rattlings to deliver orders, while standing on the shoulders of ogryns. Failling that, i'm sure a please wouldn't hurt.

tell them that we are being paid three times what we would if we where on the enemies side and that the enemy tried to get us to fight with them for free, then my troops would charge across the battlefield and try and kill them all,
or tell them that I've ordered an ordnance barrage on our position and then a lance beam following our path to the battlefield and if we don't start moving we're all dead.

1 SONG!
We're no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
A full commitment's what I'm thinking of
You wouldn't get this from any other guy

I just wanna tell you how I'm feeling
Gotta make you understand

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you


EVEN CHAOS CANT TAKE THIS SHIT LOL
