    IG Tactics PDF. 120 pages. 50,000 words. Pictures!

    Hi guys.

    We at The-Forum-That-Shall-Not-Be-Named have recently completed a large Imperial Guard Tactics PDF. Fifteen authors have written a selection of articles, giving unit overviews and tactics ideas for everyone's favourite servants of the Emperor. We have a massive collection of pictures as well for some juicy eye candy. I thought you might be interested, so I've shared the links here.

    This PDF is intended primarily for newcomers to the Guard, but I like to think there's some food for thought even for the grizzled Veterans amongst us.

    For those unfamiliar with Rapidshare, just click 'Free User', and then wait 40 seconds until the site condescends to let you click the 'Download' button. If this download does not work for you, there is another here on MegaUpload.

    If you're wary of downloading something from a new guy like me (entirely reasonable), feel free to check us out first here on Warseer.

    Best regards,
    Adam

    From reading down the Command Squad section, I notice some odd builds that have medics and bodyguards attached to a more shooty squad that sits within a Chimera anyways...dosen't much make sense to me unless the squad plans to get out and assault...frequently. Sure chimeras aren't the sturdiest vehicles in the universe but if your CCS is riding at the spearhead of the mechanized assault, expect that his tenure will be rather short.

    I think its the 'new toy' syndrome kicking in a bit, but I just never liked the cost for the bodyguards especially with their fixed loadout, but I'm more of a fan of the ~150 points or so CCS...unless its a CC CCS, in which case I like Straken and a Priest.

    Skimmed through most of it.

    I like most of it, but there are some issues I have, mostly with praising gimpy units as good and disagreements about unit assessments. I'll read it in depth and give you a full review.

    That is pretty much where I am with it. Great in parts, spotty in others. In general seems to follow a theme of having a good idea, then making it almost right.

    Example: Flamer command squad in flamer chimera with flamer turret. Not really necessary to drop the Multilaser for no real benefit.

    There are some great quotables in there though:
    "Normally I despise idiotic, unsubstantiated statements like “Unit x sucks!” but frankly, the Punisher is about as useful as chocolate chain mail. Avoid at all costs. ~Editor"

    "Demolisher. It does exactly what it says on the tin. ~Bodysnatcher"

    "Finally, demo charges. We have an aircraft and we have a bomb. We want to use
    the bomb on the enemy. We are therefore going to give the bomb to a guy, and
    have that guy jump out of the plane. When he arrives on the ground, he will throw
    the bomb at the target. Something about this has never seemed quite right to me.
    ~Mandragola"

    The guide mentions that Scout Sentinels can start on the board in DoW mission (Pg. 56, Sentinels article). How so?

    From what i've read it's an alright tacticia but i've seen much better. I'd agree tat it's good fo beginners but a beginner probobly won't want to read the rulebook; then his/her codex; then 120 pages of tactics, almost half of which is teling him to specialise his squads (4x flamer command squads and such).

    Additionally it doesn't seem to have enough nerw ideas to get many veteran guard players interested in reading all 120 pages.

    That's just my opinion.
