i have some questions reguarding guard point cost, it shows that 1 platoon equals one troop choice then it says 2-5 squads= 1 platoon and that costs 60 pts plus weps ect, my friend says its 60 pts per 10 guys is that how it works? say i have 6 10 man guard squads all with sergent, plasma gun and lascannon, how much would that be?

It's per squad (10 guys). So for example, your absolute minimal platoon would cost 160 points (1 JO, and 2 squads)
55 guardsmen for 100 points would be quite a lot! ;?

how do you have a lascannon in an infantry squad, or do you have a heavy weapons platoon with you HQ and you putting them with you squads like the eldar.

6 IG infantry squads, all with plasmaguns and lascannons, would come to a grand total of 570 points. Plus the cost of the 2 JO's required (you cannot have a platoon of 6 full infantry squads, so would be required to split them and make it 2 seperate platoons with a JO each).

Also, you should google "garfield minus garfield". Awesome.
When first i read the guard codex i was astounded by the sheer number of heavy weapons you could field. Not realizing the low BS of the IGmen, i thought "how on earth can anyone beat this?!".

Remember as well that you can field remnant squad for each platoon, I believe you need at least four men at 6pts each. I run a flamer armed troop of seven to act as counter charge with my platoon HQ.
