Hello, I'm a new player to 40k and I just picked up the rule book.
After researching a bit I decided I want to start an IG army, but I don't have the codex yet so I was wondering what to get.
any help would be nice, thank you :lol:
Buy the codex first. That and the rulebook are very important. I would buy the Battleforce and a box of Cadians to start with, but beyond that, I can't suggest anything before you buy the codex. The trick with 40k is that once you've bought the very expensive models, buit, and painted them, you want to be able to use them. The trick to this is to not buy anything untill you know for sure you're going to be using it in your army. Wasting time and money on uneeded models can get really frustrating.
If you have any questions about the codex, this is a good place to ask them. Of course, if you don't want to play Cadians, the above suggestions don't really apply. That's why you should buy the codex and make sure you know wich type of Guarc army you want to play.
We'll show these filthy aliens what Imperial Guard are made of!
I agree with fish, its what I did when I started playing guard. Tho I didn't collect Cadians, instead i created my own regiment using steel legion models as a basis, gave them 4 doctorines from the codex, and now have 1500pts worth of guard.
I'm still not sure what I will be playing, cadians are most likely though.
I just finished reading a few articles on their units, tanks and doctrines on LO so I've got a god idea of what I want.
And as for the codex, I'm picking it up this weekend...right after I see hitch hikers guide to the galaxy.
