Ok I know Space Marines as allies are stupid cuz you cant use Adepta Sororitas, but , Are Imperial Guard worth it....I really want a Leman Russ and i heard there good at shooting. I know u need two troops choices to get a Leman Russ so realisticly how many points are the troops gonna cost altoghter and plus the cost of the tanks is it worth it to get the guard????
You'd be looking at 465 points for the two infantry platoons and a leman russ with no upgrades (just hull heavy bolter), or 405 points for two armoured fist squads and a leman russ. All of this is without upgrades, basic troops and basic tanks; no sponsons on the russ, no heavy or support weapons on the squads. All in all, it is not worth it, you'd be looking at a third of your points in a 1,500 game.
hahah thanks idinos for putting that into perspective i think Ill just stay to pure sisters they plenty good with out a Russ. But Imperial Guard is kewl i think i sence a new army comming on here...
I think its worth it simply to see the look on your opponents face when they see the Russ.
"I thought you were playing Witch Hunters?"
Most people don't expect that kind of ordnance from a Sisters army. Paired with an Excorcist.... ugly.
Yeah thats what i was thinking too lol, But if i were gonna take the two troops of guard i would proabley only play it in 1500-2000 obviously. Should I take the Regular ones or the two armored fist ones???
It depends on what you want or what you are up against, armoured fist will get you significantly less men and two more vehicles than normal companies, so it is all a matter of numbers/priorities.
I think guard are worth it. Since the Witch hunters codex came out I started an imperial gaurd army. Besides, you know a weapon with 72" str9 ap2 (lamun russ battle cannon) is a nuns wet dream. I can already see the tv commercials.
"its big, its phallic, and it can smite the foes of the emperor! Get your very own Lamun Russ battle Cannon. Order now and you will also get 2 platoons of imperial guards men for ONLY 600 pts!"
Jesus only 600pts thats a big load of change. The tiny problem is there low ld score, you may want to get a second HQ for a Heroic Senior officer. And since you can neer use doctrine you cant get Iron Disipline to have them regroup at below strenght.

Well i just got the Ig codex and two boxes of shock troops to give me sumthing to assemble and work on. While i read the codex i am currently assembling my first guardsmen
Who needs Iron Discipline when you have vox casters?
