Have had a traitor guard army since the eye of terror campaign. Love them to bits. But I have been reading about (note: have not had access to read the actual codex) GSC and sounds like a great opportunity for a bit of thought play.
Purestrains can easily just be daemons, patriarchs can be better daemons, and the rank and file stay as they were.
Im under the belief that rank and file grunts in a GSC are better at H2H than regular guard and I think this would be well reflected as chaos worshippers should have a close combat preference (I know mine do when I add priests)
So how do people feel about this?? Would it make anyone butthurt over the idea of fighting a non purple GSC or would you all appreciate the effort taken to change the focus of my army from priests and charismatic leaders to daemons and arse kickery??
