[FONT=Times] I have just started to play Imperial Guard, but I know how to play the game so I am not an absaloute noob but I just wanted to know what I should equip my HQ with because I havent got one yet but will soon. I have two shock troops box sets and just wondering what I should get next any sugestions are appreciated thank you.
The actual Command Squad can easily be made from the Shock Troop boxes.
All you need is one Officer and 4 guardsmen. Usually you'll take something a little fancier than that, but when you first start up (and are likely playing small point battles) theres nothing wrong with a Laspistol and Chainsword on your Commanding Officer.
The IG HQ can become very complicated though, because you can attach many different types of squads to your Command Squad. Just read over the codex plenty of times and it will start to make sense.
Eventually, your Commanding Officers will likely carry a Bolt Pistol/Power Weapon or maybe a Storm Bolter and a Power Weapon.
EDIT: Pick a role for your command squad after you get a few games under your belt. Some players use them as a counter-charge unit, some just for the leadership and some as a support unit. I like to fill mine with grenade launchers and keep it behind most of my men.
I am the Aquila-Guerilla!
