    I just got the new codex and want to get into Imperial guard, im currently playing orks. Most the games we play are small so i want to put together an armylist that i dont have to change based on who im fighting and around 500pts. I really also like the idea of a pure stormtroopers army. So here it is.

    500pts(480)
    Command Section(75pts)
    Junior Officer. The officer has Laspistol and close combat weapon, 1 Autocannon

    5 Storm Troopers and Sergeant(70pts)
    Weapons: Hellguns and targeters, 2 Plasma Guns. Sergeant has hell pistol and cc weapon.

    5 Storm Troopers and Sergeant(70pts)
    Weapons: Hellguns and targeters, 2 Plasma Guns. Sergeant has hell pistol and cc weapon.

    Sentinel Squadron(100pts)
    2x Autocannon variants

    Leman russ(165pts)
    Weapons: Battle cannon, Hull lascannon, Side heavy bolters

    I Still have 20pts to spend. who knows where. Im aslo considering dropping the leman russ and taking up 2 chimeras. Any opinions>?

    Oh forgot to mension the doctrons i took though you can probably guess. Carapace armour so my command squad has 4+ armour saves too. Making the whole army more stormtrooperesk.

    Carapace Armour
    Special Weapons Squads
    Stormtooper Squads
    Grenadier

    Wow. A Battle Tank in a 500 pt. list. Prepare to be called cheesy by anyone you play that couldn't afford anti-tank in 500 pts.

    But overall, you're troops aren't enough. Spend any extra points on more Stormtroopers. 5 man squads will get their asses handed to them. Maybe drop a Sentinel (or both) to afford more troops.

    The only problem you will have is winning the basic missions because your squads will be <50% or dead very quickly.

    Special Weapons squads? Where are they? What a waste&#33; And why have you used the Storm Trooper Doctrine and Grenadiers? When you take Grenadiers you no longer need the Storm Trooper Doctrine unless you want more than 3 Squads of them.

    Make sure you take your full allowance of 5 Doctrines (these would fit nicely):
    * Close Order Drill. (so you dont break so quickly)
    * Xeno-Fighters.
    * Die-hards.
    * Iron Discipline. (so you can rally after losing 3 men from your squads)
    IG since &#39;95.

    Special weapons squad was for larger games, i dont like the idea of switchin doctrins depending on gamesize.

    i think ive decided also to drop the doctrin carapace armour.

    the Revised army Essentualy is a command section, infantry platoon(missile lauchers), 5 man grenader squad, a leman russ.. and i got bout 50pts to spair

    thats about the size of it
