    As a Guard Armoured Co. Player, I think cadians are better, of course it's all really a matter of character, Catachans rule at Jungle fighting, but are quite often outgunned, i play a lot more Cityfight games and so, i use a cadian style army, under a different name, if u play jungle fights, go catachan, if u play cityfights, go cadian.

    Grand, Excellent choice sir,
    I would use a few tanks, the Leman Russ Squadrons can be invaluable at times, and Chimeras i think are a necessity for Armageddon units, use the multi laser, it&#39;s probably the best weapon there, dealing damage to people and vehicles if necessary, and never forget, you have 6 lasgun shots from guardsmen inside the vehicle, yeah, it may do absolutely nothing, but there&#39;s no harm trying.

    1: I am quite certain that the Steel Legion can use the same heavy weapons that everyone else does.
    2: In the back of the IG codex it says what heavy/special weapons the Steel Legion favors, aswell as what doctrines they use.
    3: Steel Legion is a mechanised army, they mount every squad in a chimera to make fast hit and run attacks i belive.
    4: Yarriks rules are also in the newest IG codex. Can&#39;t remember what page, its at the back of the codex aswell.

This will be my full army and then when city fight i will half it in 2,so what do u guys think.

    The last time i looked at it, an imperial guard squad was 10 men
    The Holy Bolter

    998. model bolter: Godwyn pattern with ammo counter, sinister/dexter lock mechanism and sickle magazine with 30 rounds of .75 calibre bolts with diamantine tips, depleted deuterium core &amp; mass reactive detonators. Fires in 4 round bursts.

    &quot;A bolter is a treasured weapon; but in the hands of a Space Marine it is a divine instrument of the Emperor&#39;s wrath&quot;

    3 Leman Russes and two Basilisks would take up 5 Heavy support slots... in most missions you can only have 3.
