So let's be mature about it. It's not supporting a facist regime, it's not screaming Neo-Nazi, It's simply a testimony to the strength of the axis war machine and is filled with awesome video game characters. Good job man.

I enjoy the army,
Before the self righteous crusaders come out of the inter webs.
look at this for it is. They are very nicely painted and converted IG army and, they do have a overall German theme. No bad images just iron crosses(around before Nazi's)
Painted in WW-2 color schemes. (I like how the iron crosses used are GW ones, the BT look awfully close) He has nothing offensive to any one IMO. (Unless you hate red skull)

Overall a pretty good painted IG army would like to see more pictures good free hand work and nice feel of the army.

I really like the army, I don't see why anyone should be offended by it.

Its cool, now I want someone to make an Indiana Jones Army. GO!

I really Like the paint scheme. But I be a hater of the SS, but considering that all of the traitiors during WW2 of Germany were all military, it makes sense i am not offended by this.

Though all I gotta say haters are going to hate this.

If he *had* painted his officers like SS and put swastikas all over the place, I'd be questioning his morality, however, as-is I don't find the army to be offensive at all, but I also don't see how it fits into the 40k universe at all. Seeing the Wermacht insignia on 40k stuff is just out-of-place. If you want to play the Wehrmacht, play Flames of War, the 40k universe really isn't a place for real-life themes. The game has the themes mostly represented already by various analogs, such as the Steel Legion or Death Korps.

Hey look, it's this thread again. /facepalm

The army is fine, especially now that you edited out the Hitler CCS. A german themed army is cool, especially one based on video games and comic books. When you start incorporating Hitler/Swastikas/etc. though, you're heading down a path that most folks will not be comfortable with.

Consider that the following comes from a proud American who isn't a fan of Nazi stuff at all: There's a difference between the German Army and the Nazis/SS in ww2. The lines are often blurred and it isn't a good thing because most of the guys in the German army were simply doing their civic duty just like anyone else who serves their country. I do not see any swasticas, SS symbols, or the like; and therefor there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with the army posted above. Before anyone starts saying ANYTHING against this thread also consider the disgusting furry crap that has been posted on here in the past few months (I think we all know that ridiculous thread).

That being said, the army is very well painted, and I think you did a great job capturing both the german army and video game inspirations that it has.

I like the paint job. The Red Skull officer was hysterical, and totally unexpected. The flags in place of sniper cloaks is innovative. I may do that myself sometime. All in all, I don't really think this army is offensive. I also note that there hasn't been a single post thus far from someone who is offended. Maybe civility and rationality can win out today.

It's funny, because I haven't actually seen anyone in the thread claim to be offended by the army. I have seen a lot of people be offended by the idea that someone else *might* be offended, however

Nobody has addressed the fact that the theme simply doesn't fit the universe, however.

Painted nicely, quite striking...but once again with such themed armies, really in bad taste.

(Its not the same as playing a Nazi army from a game set in that period, or pulp. Jury rigging the theme into a completely different setting can irk some people...)

...Though I do myself have a contintent of my Imperial Guard army based off an alternative future fascist sci fi series....I just don't use any of the insignia...I just like the look of the armour... =/

It's really on your view as to whether it's in bad taste or not.

Bottom line is, if you open a thread entitled "4th Reich Imperial Guard" then don't be surprised with what you see or be offended.

Like I said in my edit, its alright playing Nazi themed armies in WWII or pulp setting, but your just going to bug people with you choose to use such themes in a completely different setting.

Oh and Lord Deth, you should check out the film "Jin Roh". The soldiers in that have some really cool armour which would go well with the look of your army (though you'd need to do minimal plasticard/greenstuff work to make them). ^^

Why would it bug people? The death korps of Kreig have a very heavy Germanic feel to them, that doesn't bother people (that I know of?).

So a WWII army of any kind shouldn't bother anyone: they're your models do with tham what you wish, as long as you're pleased then that's all that should matter.

Still I do see where you're coming from and what you're getting at, perhaps I'm too liberal for my own good...

If you want to play 40k, stick with a theme that fits in the universe. Like I sad before, the existence of the Death Korps is not a reason to *play* real-life themed armies, it's a more suitable alternative. If you want to play a WWII army play flames of war.

Or play 40k? I seriously do not believe you are telling people that they cannot play a game of toy soldiers because of the way said soldiers are painted/modelled, more suitable or not.
