Good morning fellow gamers,
with the new goodness that is the guard codex I've been considering jumping on the bandwagon. I haven't seen the codex myself, so I have a question for those of you who had. Is it possible to build a solid, competitive Cadia list based only on the models currently available to the IG from GW? ForgeWorld has plenty of tanks available, however, they do charge quite a sum for most of them, so I would like to avoid them.
Thanks for any input on this!
Besides, there's nothing that can't be done with conversions (or in fact would be best done by conversions)

Thanks to both of you, guys. Now, can anyone give me a rough estimate at how much money I'm looking at for a good force that can be scaled from 1000 pts up to 2000 pts? Considering I do wish to enjoy a couple of tanks as well.
Its very possible, it would be easier with the new models out, but its still easily possible, i mean i have 80 guys and 4 tanks in a 1500 point army.
hmm a price estimate, well i screwed up with my army i just bought models i like at first then after about 6 months to a year of playing i finally got the codex. SO basically i spent probably around $200 before i actually made a list, then i spent another $400 making that list, this was for a 1500 point army.
I would say just know what you want in an army then make a valid good list and buy it,a s long as its reasonable, liek the Imperial Guard regiment in the old codex(well the half regiment) i was thinking about making that then i took the time and calculated it up, it would be about 50k points and $14,000.

We who have seen war will never stop seeing it....In the silence of the night, we will always hear the screams....
I would definitely plan an army first. But the thing is, I have a pile of daemons sitting at home which I already use in fantasy, and I wonder whether getting three Soulgrinders would cost me more than a 1500 pt Cadia force in all its galore, head on with the mechanical niceness that is the IG tanks and transports.
Anyway, thanks a lot. I'll check out the codex tomorrow at a local store and see if I can come up with something on place, possibly getting a price into the equation as well.
Get the dex and post up a list, also with your question of is it possible to make a guard army without any FW stuff, most of the guard players i know including myself dont have any FW guard stuff.
IG Best Gen 1st overall of 10 DE 4th overall of 6
Eldar 3rd Overall/Best General of 26--2nd Overall/Best General of 7--1st Overall/Best General of 11
That is encouraging to hear, regarding the FW stuff. Allright, I'll pick up the codex and let you know in the AB subsection. Cheers!
