Hello fellow Imperial Guard commanders!
Tomorrow I have my weekly battle against Warlord 'Ardgit (an Ork player if you have not already guessed) and I cannot decide what kind of army structure to employ against him.
Our battles are always between 500 and 1000 points and I usually take an infantry platoon with two squads and an Armoured Fist squad to fill my troop requirements. But recently ive been torn between the previously mentioned troops and Grenadiers!
I'd like to hear what you guys think about the Grenadiers vs Platoon Doctrine option and what you personally prefer vs Ork, choose vs Ork, and why. The differences between Platoons Infantry and Grenadiers are fairly obvious so I will not list them out.
Typically I take a Leman Russ Battle Tank and either 5-10 Ratlings or 1-2 Fire Support Squads to support my Infantry, and more and more glorious tanks if the points allow! His army usually comprises of 20+ Slugga Boyz, 2-6 Buggies/Traks sporting their twin linked rokkit launchers and sometimes 10-20 Trukboyz or Stormboyz.
Any constructive feedback is welcome. Thanks guys.
