As the title says, do you think that your army will struggle against the new guard codex?
Or is it just a marketing hype from GW to sell more models, and that you will still walk all over the imperial guard?
As I'm playing 4:th ed chaos and looking at what they did with orks and SM. yes I will fear IG on the other hand I won't play against them either until chaos gets into 5:th so it's just one more opponent that I can scratch off my matchmaker board. then again I could use SM rules for my choas but then why did I buy all them 1k sons...
The new IG codex will be abusable and IG will be getting a significant boost vs older codices.
anybody not playing orks or SM should be worried about this and prolly orks too.
Afraid-no. Wary-yes. I enjoy playing guard though so looking forward to it though some combinations look annoying on paper. I play Chaos so its a nice match-up.
Currently play: 4000+ of Black Legion
My army's Codex is from 3rd ed so they might have an advantage in that respect, but they'll still be Guardsmen
guard : Pagk = 6,25 : 1 (no special weapons). And I really hope that 6 guardsmen will be able to handle 1 pagk
guard : Tagk = 11,5 : 1 (still basic loadout). so I have 110 guardsmen + for every 10 of the termies.
Also, if I save as many points as I think I will, (unlikely) then I have room for some more of those 30 grey knight termies (lovlely CC squads in a guard army)
They're lovely CC squads in any army; Fearless, WS5, S6 at Initiative, with a free squad psychic hood, and if you take a Grand Master you can one-shot anything with your Nemesis Force Weapon wether they have Eternal Warrior or not. Trouble is, is a squad that costs the same as a Leman Russ really value for points in a Guard army?Also, if I save as many points as I think I will, (unlikely) then I have room for some more of those 30 grey knight termies (lovlely CC squads in a guard army)
