Since the latest in-game teaser seems to have stirred quite a discussion regarding the color of the las-beams, I'll leave it up to you to decide which do you think would be more appropriate for the game.

Red like in DoW 1;
Yellow like in DoW 2 and some books;
Blue like in some books.

Yellow, seems to be like "In the middle" And I think it would fit on them really well :3

If Pythus in the image commenting box is correct, then the older Las-Rifle models have red lasers. Since we're (assuming) on a backwater planet, I doubt the Imperium really cares to give us the best equipment, so I'm picking Red.

But like the ending of Mass Effect 3, it's just a color, so whatever we end up with, I'll be fine.

i chose blue, because i see the 113th rifle regiment(the one we're using) to be a well equipped/stocked regiments and not some last minute regiment with hand me down gear. like Catachan said, if what Pythus said is true, it would suit them just fine.

and the local PDF can always have lasguns with red lasers since, again like Catachan said, its just some planet with no real importance. so i doubt they'd put having up to date gear as a high priority for them.

If that's the case, shouldn't they be off to war instead of guarding an unimportant world?

It's called reinforcements.

I'm wondering what the SFX is going to be like, because in DoW 2 they sounded really wimpy

my personal opinion :) not officially how the regiment is. and even so, if they were the closest it would make sense to ask them for help instead of other regiments which could be weeks or months away.

Seems most people want the IG las-fx to be red, this will make distinguishing between older and less efficient lasguns such as used by PDF and renegades/cultists and newer models harder, especially since lasers are pretty fast going in the mod as it is.

I'll let the poll go on until July 1st before making a decision.

I've only ever seen red lasers in Fire Warrior, Dawn of War, and Space Marine so I say we go with what everyone is used to, besides blue just doesn't look threatening enough.

Space Marine also had green lasers.

Hm... I see some mess with the informations in here. To make things a bit more clear:
The color of laserweapons depends on the used frequenzy (Dont know, if this is still the right word in english. I mean the justification of the weapon.) and can be changed on the field with the right knowledge and tools (But it's forbidden for default soldiers.). As you can see on many lore pictures the default lasweap color for Imperial Guard goes from white to blue/white. (This is one of the few more certain facts in WH40k cuz we can see it directly on the lore pictures and as far as I know it's written in some of the older rulebooks/codices.) Some imperial units change the lasercolor for one or another reason. (It's legal as long the Mechanicus does this.)
Edith says:Chaos Renegades use what they can get, therefore the color of theire weapons can differ even in the same unit, but in lore they have red lasers in most cases.
