    Depends on the points limit.

    500points = 1 to 2 troop units
    1000points = 2 to 3 troop units
    1500points = 3 to 4 troop units

    The basic idea is 1 troops option for every 500points, plus what ever you want.

    Hope that helps,

    Bearing in mind 2 out of 3 missions are objective based, I tend toward spending 30-50% of my points on Troops. How many squads those points are made up of depend on the size of the game and my opponent.

    I am using 2 scouts squads and 2 tactical squads at 1850 and that feels like the minimum.

    I don't often use Scouts so I tend to use 2-4 tactical squads for most matches. My last tournament at 1850 points I used three full tactical squads.

    At 500 to 1000 pts I'd use 2 tactical squads;
    1500 pts - 2 to 3 tactical squads;
    1850-2000 pts - 3 to 4 tactical squads.

    It depends on your army. I can run 2 Tac Squads at 1500 because I spend more points on killy units. They can split up for 4 scoring units or stick together to minimize KPs. All I need to do is hold 1 objective more than ==My== opponent.

    I usually play 1 scout squad and 2 full tactical squads in 1500 pts.

    Even though i always combat squad my tacticals in objective missions, i usually plan on capturing +-70% of the objectives and contesting the others. That way my Troops aren't spread too thin.
