    Hey all! My first post here. Usually I post up at the command tower IG, but thought I'd stop in here for a change of pace.

    So basically, I'm curious as to what doctrines you like to use and what armies. My IG army, which is subject to change as I'm only now starting it, uses steel legion storm trooper models.

    Carapace Armor
    Mechanized
    Enginseers
    Grenadiers
    Iron Discipline

    Whaddaya think of mine? If you have any advice or want to share your own doctrines, It would be great.....

    i use

    Carapace Armour
    Drop Troops
    Hardened Fighters
    Iron Discipline
    Die-Hards

    i picked these cause i&#39;ve always wanted 4+ saves, i&#39;ve alwayz wanted a CC IG force w/ now WS4&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; and the rest just fits my fluff

    as for your doctrines, they&#39;re not bad, the only thing i wouldnt&#39; do is mechanized, because of the money cost to buy chimeras for every squad

    Hello,

    Question regarding the doctrine costs.

    is the cost of the doctrine worht for a squad or for a troop ?

    For instance, if you have a troop of 4 squads and you take the carapace armor for the whole troop, is it in total 20pts or 80pts (4*20) cost ?

    In the French codex, the phrasing would imply that it&#39;s per troop, not per squad.
    More interesting...

    well, i kind of have the same feeling, as in the English Codex it says per unit, i took it as per squad because in the armoury Carapace Armour is 5 pts per model, so 20 pts per squad isn&#39;t too bad IMO, so i just put it on every squad to be safe

    Well, now I&#39;m not so sure what I&#39;m going to do after all. I&#39;m leaning away from mech forces (I&#39;m not sure why, I seemed so intent upon building one this morning) but I don&#39;t have any idea what to do. Since I&#39;m only really just starting, I can&#39;t really tell what would be better for me... Any help would be great.

    Oh, and by the way the URL for the Command Tower, possibly the greatest IG site on the net, is as follows:

    my army uses the following doctrines

    drop troops
    carapace armour
    close order drill
    hardened fighters
    sharpshooters

    i use mainly sentinals, sooped up close combat infantry, and inderect fire weapons

    i LOVE flamers because theres no need for balistic skill. therefore i have many heavy flamers and flamers

    my basic plan is to hold back most of my army in reserver with just a few infantry and my tanks out. the tanks and infantry with heavy weapons shoot at the enemy as the close in and then about 3rd-4th turn i drop all the vetrans, officers, infantry and sentinals behind then enemy not only catching him in crossfire but getting stuck in and such, if the enemy beat me in close cmbat, which is suprisingly not very often they still have to advance towards the tanks and infantry in formation.
