I've recently been considering on changing my current IG army list, it was similar to this new one but with an extra russ, no lascannons, veterans or missile lauchers.
It was basically one platoon with grenade launchers, an armoured fist with meltagun, two russ's and a souped up HQ, the entire army had carapace, chem-inhalers etc. It was very expensive on points for what i had and it wasn't very effective.
So i came up with this:
-master-crafted power weapon
Anti-tank Support sqd
Anti-tank support sqd
Same as Sqd 1
Armoured Fist Sqd
Leman Russ BT
-hvy bolter sponsons
Total = 1002 pts
I may drop a vox and get a few bolt pistols for my officers to lose the 2 odd points.
I hope that this list is more effective, but feel free to comment on it if it isn't or give ideas to improve it. Thanks.
i havent since grenade launchers do anything i ages. you might as well get plasma guns they hit harder and more often then a launcher. i would swap the power sword for a fist. youll have more impact in cc vs marines. 5+ to wound to 2+!
dont forget extra armour
I don't paticularly like plasma guns, it's a waste of points when they blow up, i prefer melta's. I don't mind the shorter range but at least i know the won't kill themselves in the process.
The power fist sounds like a good idea, i'll give it a trial when i next play. See if it works.
I completly forgot about extra armour. Thanks for reminding me. I'll probably lose all the vox casters are something to get the extra points i need. Thanks for the ideas. Any more?
Autocannons may be a better choice for BS3 guardsmen, as they have two shots each. I would change some of the anti-tank uints into fire support units, and keep a few lascannons to use against leman russes, land raiders, etc.
No need for mastercrafting the power weapon, or indeed the refractor field. If you are goin to use the master vox the best bet is to hide him in a corner, so mayub even drop the G-launcher. Thats just my personal prefrence.
With that many lascannons you may as well take out the melta gun as well. I doubt you will get very close to the enemy tanks with the side armour that the chimera has. Use the Chimera empty and use it as a gunboat.
Use the squad you get with the armoured fist as another squad, a heavy weapon and G-Launcher.
Maybe you could swap out the G launchers for plasma, but G-launcers can hold their own. Against anything other than power armout it will be fine.
As I always say, try to put the lascannons into your infantry squads, even though the missile launcher are cheaper in the infantry squads, your lascannons need protection. Nothing is better for that than bodies.

Specifically what kind of advise are you looking for m0z? Do you want the hardcore IG players here to rip it down and totally reshape it or are you looking for small tweaks with the existing models?
