Hey everyone, I'm pretty IG inept and I'm curious as what exactly DHs can induct because what the codex say doesen't exactly match up with what is on the GW website it seems. This is the site I'm looking at:
It says for troops I can have a Infantry Platoons and Armored Fist Squads. What are those exactly? I understand how the Sentinels, Rough Riders, and Leman Russes work I'm just kinda confused as to how exactly the IG infantry work etc. Can someone explain it a bit please?
Well, as for what models to use, Cadian Shock Troopers are the most common. Steel Legion models are also used, but more expensive. Don't worry about the names, they're just standard IG troopers.
You're gonna have to buy Codex: IG if you want to induct Guard, and all this is explained in there. A platoon is two or more squads of troopers, with one command squad. Second entry down is what you want here, and probably some heavy weapons teams once you figure out what you're going to do with them.
An Armored Fist is a squad of troopers in a Chimera.
As for what to induct and how to use it...
To Induct or Not to Induct
Inducted Imperial Guard
Ig + Dh
Daemonhunter/imperial Guard Army
Wow! Thanks for the info. So is that to say that for one troop slot I can get 40 troops, a command squad thingie, and (how many) heavy weapons squads? What would be the largest setup you could get?
Basically a platoon consists of three squads: 1 command, and 2 regular. All three of those can take heavy and special weapons, as listed in the codex. And I know you can add more regular squads to a platoon, but I don't know if there is an upper limit on how many. Remember, though, that adding a lot of squads quickly racks up points.
Since you *need* two IG troop choices to get your hands on the juicier inducted IG units (*cough*LemanRuss*cough*), I'd keep them both at the minimum size of Command + 2. You can always add more squads to your existing platoons, or entirely new platoons down the line once you've taken care of more important things.
Yeah that is pretty much my goal, to have 2 or 3 platoons of IG and a Leman Russ. So how many points roughly would 2 platoons cost?
