PostSubject: Should I choose IG or IR?   Tue Jun 01, 2010 5:15 am

Hey there, I have a question.

I have a vision for my future squad (doesn't everybody!) and I don't know which squad would better serve it. They are basically Imperial penal legion 'stragglers' left on the planet, after both allies and enemies leave ready for the planet's exterminatus. They need to build a ship to get off the planet.

At first I immediately went to IG, but I recently skimmed over the renegades and I saw that they could also be a small group of 'stragglers' with very limited equipment. The main problem is I really don't like the idea of chaos in mutations. I thought I could maybe rationalise it with toxic sewage left on the planet, but then I don't think that can cause you to have two heads. Also, there's a risk of recruits being killed just for a 'sewage' mutation. But I also don't want the highly organised structure of the IG.

Anyway, I've gone on for long enough, basically, which would you choose?

Thanks!

the choice between IG and IR are very different.

You can play the IR's as a disgruntled IG squad and take no mutations just hope the hell you don't roll up a mutation later.

My IG's are based on the Urban fighters and my IR's are heavily into the mutations. especially the Sergeants as they are the power houses for the IR's.

My first sarge has sword/slugga combo with scorpion tail and spitting acid he's the close combat machine. the 2nd is a very different choice he has the HUGE mutation with the cloud of flies as the second choice. the cloud of flies are there to cancel out the +1 to hit the IR sarge suffers due to his huge stature, not a bad combo. Armed him with a slugga and sword at the moment but he will get a shotgun later.

the other thing to consider is the skill tree your officers will take. this can also be fluff driven if you can roll well...

personally the IG offers better equipment but with a bland structure whilst the IR offers limited resources but with some big flavour.

best thing to do is try both forces use what ever figs you got as proxies and see which path better suits your story and give it a whirl.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Imperial Renegades does open the possibility of feilding a Genestealer Cult - all you need is the right "counts as" fluff and modeling... in fact, that's my plan for my next, next, next Squad.

Glory to the Four-Armed Emperor!

Mord and myself will be doing the Genestealer cult Squad once we get the Kroot, Chaos Cult, Space marine scouts, Adeptus Arbites and Rogue Traders sorted out...

just give us time it will get done....
