    Army Type:Gren or Balances??

    Hey Guys,

    I have been playing IG for about two years now, but my army has remained pretty small. As I have debated how to expand my army, grenadies came into mind. They seem pretty cheap money wise, especially since there won't be that many squads of them. But I play marines and necro mostly, so am I better off using a balanced list or could a grenadiers list actually work well? Also, is it actually more cost effective?

    Thanks

    A normal list is more cost effective as for having the numbers IG are known for but grenadiers and stormtroopers can be effective if used correctly. If you plan to build the army based on money cost the smaller army is the way to go but a large army is pretty satisfying on the table.

    See, now the more I have thought about it, my grenadiers army wouldn't be completely elite, it would probably end up a fusion of a grenadier and a balanced list. I will have a list posted on here tommorow. The thread can be moved then if so desired. You guys can butcher the list up all you want, it can only help.

    Synergy hits it on the dot in his first sentence. If not used correctly they are not worth the trouble having. Smaller IG forces can be good but they have to be played differently than larger forces.
