I currently own several Fantasy armies and me and my friend are going to start 40k.
I am interested in starting an army that can possibly be good at ranged. I was thinking Imperial Gaurd? I already have the Codex for Dark Elder but I'm not too sure about that army.
So could I please get some advice on what army could be suited highly for pure range? Please could I have the good and bad points over the armys suggested too?
My friend is collecting Tau so they are out of the question.
Ranged wise you can't do much better than IG, due to the number of shots they can put out being far more than most other armies. That and the fact they can field 3 tanks per slot gives you a very hard hitting mech force. 18 tanks just from HS and FA slots will make your enemy sad
Eldar can also shoot well, but are a much harder army to play.
I will go and buy the Codex for IG and take a further look at the unit stats. ^^
A load of tanks do seem fun.
