I was thinking about making an army just of storm troopers. I would use the grenadiers doctrine and add 3 squads of them. Then in my elites choice i would also have a couple more squads of storm troopers.
I do realise that this army wouldn't do very well but i like the storm trooper models.
What do you think of it?
Space Wolves 12-1
Wood Elves 1-2
I love the models as well, but without some HW Teams, you are right they would get killed.
I take Grenadiers Doctorine, mount a couple of squads in Chimeras, have a HW Lascannon Squad, and three squads of Veterans with Lascannons, throw in a Fire support squad, three Pie plate droppers a Hellhound, and you have an effective army!

if you want to do all stormtroopers then you have need longrange fierpower from somethin elece how about leamonruss(sss)
you can have 2 in 1000 point loads of stormtroopers with plasma guns and and a tooled up command HQ take the carapace armour doctoain and have the HQ in that and all vetrerans with specail weapons
or is you want infantry with fier power take a veteran squad with carapace armoure and 3 las cannons
ues stormtrooper models and your away
(conveerting the laas cannons maby do them in the style o fth eold rapier laser destoryer maby a forgeworld cyclops demo vehical with a las cannon and power pack from the cadain spres on the top?)
in fact i like the idear of stormtroopers with las cannons so much that i will convert one of my 3 scratch build cyclopses in to a las cannon and take vertrans with carapace armoure useinf stormtrooper models
OK so Stormtroopers havent got heavy weapons in the squads and you cant take HW teams that are storm troopers, but that does leave you countless other options:
As someone said, take carapace armour and do some conversion, after all your command squad isnt gonna be storm troopers
Take HWs in other ways:
The problem with storm trooper is not the lack of heavy weapons, this can be dealt with, the problem with ST armies is this, The strength of Ig is their numerous and cheap troops, by using stormtroopers, you up the cost and down the numbers by making them elite but the thing is they are not Elite compared to other armies, the average space marine, CSM, necron, gene stealer or aspect warrior will still wipe the floor with them, so the points upgrade and the reduced numbers are rarely worth it. That said, it dont rule the army out, the carapace armour is nice as is the BS, but it makes them harder to use effectiely
this has been discused so many times, theres loads of topic about it out there.

you should use daemon hunter allies so you can have sergeants with power armor
