it seem pretty silly to say its over powered after one game, and if you are winning almost all your games of 40k, maybe you should find a new crew to play with.
I totally agree since I mean if you cant beat someone in one battle WTF totally unfair even if you have annoyed the dice gods but really you should be able to beat someone even without good dice since if you cant that army is overpowered so while Im sure tanks could always fire all there guns when standing still he should still move them since I mean come on who would make an Imperial Guard gunline its so beardy really cheesy and those lasguns shouldnt be rapid fire gg gquit so op you cant win against ig codex if you could you must be playing ig as well only more cheesy like with 15 leman russians or vindicated with their stupid vodka cannons stupid poisons I tried using my charm and wits but he wouldnt even take off his pants ni hao ++int 120 water you make never lose never give up never surrender never look the devil in the eyes while wearing prescription sunglasses stop purge dictatum when feeling down I like to plant flowers as while their benefits are not immediately apparent they will give a bloom of colour later on when I am feeling depressed after a single game of playing against the qqmore first you need to make sure that the soil is right for your bulbs as well as keep in mind the lighting as some flowers do not fare so well in intense lighting one should plan ahead about what their flower bed will look like you do not want to have some flowers overshadowed by other flamboyant blossoms a level of balance should be expected
How do youi beat IG with Sisters? Not failing tons of Acts might be a good start :-o

Hey! maybe rather than being completly worthless like most of you are doing maybe you can reply with some strategy and tatics other than rush up to guard with mech column with smoke screening anything out of the norm to deal with the new guard.
Rhino Rush up the middle and flame/CC away......saraphims with Infirno's and a jumpy tank hunting cannonness..
thats how I usually beat them.

And try not to fail your Acts tests
induct them. Just kidding. The stragey that works best aginst horde armies (yes guard is a horde army) is fight 1/2 of his army with all of yours. To accomdate all the models and tanks he has to bring he well have to spread out.across his deployment zone you on the other hand have a fairly compact list, so only use half of your deployment zone. Anther time honered tradtion is using your rhino as moving walls to deny your oppenet any shots other than the rhino's because even if it is destroyed it still blocks LOS (unles he rolls a 6) . Another trick you could try would be to tie him in close combat with your BSS and use divine guidance to make 6's act like power weapons. My last tidbit is target priority. No matter the enemy or army you play this simple concept can dramactly increase your chance of winning ( its not 100% because even if you make the right decsion sometimes the dice gods will hate on you) . Target prioty is this: asses what unit is denying you winning the game and anhilate it. As an example if you see that your oppenet has only 2 troops choice and the mission is counters all your shots should be at those 2 troops choice because if they are elminated the best your oppennet can hope for is a tie. Hope this helpfull

I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
Guard will have lots of units and trouble capturing objectives. Even more so than in the last codex, there will just be a few extra guys that can kill stuff a bit faster.
