hey everybody as of you know i'm in the middle of build a imperial guard army, but i have abit of a thorn in my butt, the chosen of Doctrines.
The now i have took sharpshooter, hardend fighters, storm troopers and finally santioned pykers.
I have one more to choose but i caneled it down to ratlings and tech priests engineers or xeno-fighters.
but i can leave that one out right now if i cant make up my mind please imperial guard players give me your thoughts(anyone really)
<MortalKombat> stfu mat|t u ****
* Acaila sets mode: +b MortalKombat!*@*
<@Acaila> FINISH HIM
<MortalKombat> omg what! man
* MortalKombat was kicked by Acaila (forward, forward, back, back, forward, punch)
Unless you are taking them purely for fluff I would drop the Pykers.
Grenadiers and Rough Riders are both far more effective.
Why not use Chem-inhalers or carapace armour?
They would give your army far more protection, for starters you wouldn't killed outright by boltguns because of the carapace armour. And your leadership would recieve no negative modifiers when you get mullered in combat.
This is just what i use in my Guard, feel free to do what you want.
Iron Discipline! your army can't leave home without.
Well, of the three u said i would choose ratlings: techpriests are complete crap and taking both Hardened and Xeno fighters is a nonsense.
my set up is grenadiers,ratlings, iron discipline, vets, and sharpshooters.
dont take the psykers, total crap, same with the techpriest, waste of points.
xenos fighters i dont like, only works if you IN CLOSE COMBAT WITH ORKS OR NIDS!!
id go for ratlings and vets.
My favorite doctrines are:
Carapace Armor - I fight a lot of Marines, the 4+ save means my guardsmen have a save against bolters.
Veterans - I make all of my anti-tank (lascannon) squads veterans to take advantage of the BS4 that they have.
Conscripts - Meatshields to slow the enemy advance
Sharpshooters - I give this to every squad that can take it, rerolling the ones makes a big difference.

i have seen a lot of people use the sharp shooters one and that is a must as most IG armies are shooty you are bound to miss some and it would be great to re-roll say a failed plasma gun hit
sorry it doesnt work on plasma guns (they die too fast to get accustomed to the weapon)...
"Remember; long, uncontrolled bursts."
Dont take Xeno, Techpriest, or Psykers. Totally waste of points. Iron Disipline should be there cause Leadership is a big deal to your men that need to stay and fight. Second think about taking Close order drill. Its free and +1 to I and Leadership isnt that bad for a free doctrine, or Cameleoline. If you play with a decent amount to alot of terran the +1 to cover is a great deal.
