I got 20 minutes until the realms are suppose to come back up, so I thought I'd jump on the forums and get peoples opinions of my transmog set :P
If you roll a human pally or even warrior, I really think the guard set looks cool and gets a lot of compliments when I'm tanking pugs. The guard sets been around forever, but, it kinda faded out and you never really saw people wearing it anymore, I believe a lot of people forgot about it all together now that we can trans armor I believe this armor is worth a second look.
If you are interested, here is what you will need to trans into a SW Guard.
Tabard of Stormwind - Purchase SW Vendor
Imperial Plate Belt – Crafted by Blacksmith
Imperial Plate Boots - Crafted by Blacksmith
Imperial Plate Bracers - Crafted by Blacksmith
Imperial Plate Chest - Crafted by Blacksmith
Imperial Plate Helm - Crafted by Blacksmith

Most BS should have this Armor set, here are the mats you will need.
(114) Thorium Bar
(12) Rugged Leather
(1) Star Ruby
For Gloves I just purchased Cobalt Gauntlets from AH, they are blue and I found match the Imperial Set well.
There is an Imperial Belt, however, I found the Lawbringer belt, usually available in ah for under 100g's, looks a lot better. The bright gold Lawbringer belt just looks much better than the Imperial (In my opinion.
This will be your best tip, in the Ah people are now selling the SW guard shield for up to 10k, whatever you do, do NOT purchase this, lol, not even for 1k. This exact shield skin is available after completing a short, easy chain in un'goro that begins with Maximillian of Northshire who can be found around 30.6,51.2 and the final quest on this chain will be The Ballad of Maximillian.
As for swords, there are several that will work, I personally chose the militant short sword
(a lower lvl grn available in ah) because not only does the blade look spot on to the guards sword, but it also has a blue and gold handle which matches the uniform perfectly.
This is what I found to be the best gear to transmogg your armor so that you look like a real Guard in Stormwind. If anyone has any better suggestions or would like to add to this, please post em up.
Enjoy your new armor set, remember to toggle (/) once complete, patrol around the trade district and watch noobs click you for directions. :D
