good imperial guard character?

Postby Pheonix » Fri Jun 29, 2012 6:10 pm

so, im looking for an imperial guard model/character to paint, but i want it to perform well on the tabletop. im interested in lord castellan creed, what are your thoughts on him? i already have a commisar and a Master of Ordnance (unpainted though), if it's worth the points and a really nice model in your opinion then please let mo know. preferably an individual model but if it's a good unit i'd consider getting it.

cheers as always.

my lord commiser is a pretty nice modal but my friend built him and painted him maybe a good modal to build and paint

I really like Creed as a model and want to use him as my ccs commander as I don't have any named Hq. But my local gw hasn't had him in for ages :(

I have insta-killed DE characters, slain SM characters, punched tanks and head-butted land raiders with him. XD

Though there is a certain build you need to play him to his fullist.
