Darth_Exilespace marines. better all round.

I disagree man, like we said earlier, the General is all that matters. Mezy also got a point, even if I doubt you may find an infantry field of battle where such a difference could make any difference...

It depends on how an army is formed, if some one doesn't mind painting all the models then guard would probably be better, it's possible to fit 90 conscripts in a 400point battle, only BS2 and strength 3 weapons but once anything get's withing 12" that's 180 shots, nothing is standing up to that plus the mammoth amount of heavy and special weapons that guard can have would take away the marines saves. Oh, and basilisks, in the right hands a basilisk is truly scary.

I reckon the Guard are cooler, cause they got more balls than the Marines. They have to combat pretty much every every threat to the Imperium in just a flak vest (T-shirt) and a lasgun (lightbulb). The marines get their fancy power armour and holy bolter. well they can shove their damn bolters up their arse. Still like the marines though. DARK ANGELZ. Tabletop, id say marines are probably stronger. But it's always more fun to win a game with guardsmen against marines, and say i won buy shooting you up and running scared when you got close.

You'll have to choose, your 90 guards or the Basilisk, man... By the way, I'm not even sure the 90 could win. A good general knows how to work with the geography... :)

Yes, but they're outnumbered by the Imperial Guards.

These two armies are fundamentaly different, you don't play 'em the same...
