Hi, yes it i another one of these posts but don't exit yet, I could really do with some asistace with my Imperial Guard army. I usualy play 1500pts in a 3 player all vs all, with me, Space Marines Ultramarines and a Tyranid elite army. The other game I play is a 1000pts 1v1 against Space Marines, but it is ot that that I am struggling with.
In the 1500pts game, I have a hard time withstanding the Tyranid army as my Guardsmen's lasguns cannot even wound some of them! The only way I have won (just) so far is by sitting back, doing squat all whilst the other two armies duke it out and thin down eachther's numbers upon which I step in in the last turn or two. But that is not a very interesting and enjoyable trategy which also doesn't sit well with the opposition.
My army list is:
Command squad - Senior officer, commissar, sentinal (mars-pattern)
Small Karskin squad
Command squad w/ 2 infantry squad inc 2 heavy weapons teams w/ lascannons
Command squad w/ 2 infantry squad inc 1 heavy weapons team w/ mortor
Leman Russ w/ side sponson heavy bolters
That is my list without ay wargear that I hange every game as I am still experimenting with some. I am currently using the last codex however the new one should be arriving within a couple of days so give advice based on the new codex lease if possible as I am unsure whether I will be playing any games untill then.
you haven't much special weapons, in my list i have maxed out all special weapon options exceot for R riders some grenade launchers can do a wonder against hordes and they could do something at MC's,
so my advice: drop the stormies and use those points to buy more special weapons and heavy weapons stormies aren't very usefull against tyrannids because they wound the same as a lasgun does
BTW: a land raider in a guard list(?)
I swapped my army with my brother just after I bought one s I wanted to keep it for a while but he said I could use the baneblade at any time.
About the heay weapons, I wa thinking of changing the ones I currently have into lascannons and getting 3 more teams with autocannons. That way, I can kill his uber upgraded carnifes's and Hive Tyrants whilst having enough strong shots to kill the one squad of gaunts he has. The zoanthrope is a bit anoying, as are the warriors...
You may want to pick up the current Codex.
