Alright, I have a bit of a dilemma choosing my last doctrine, and so I want to ask the good people of librarium online for some input:tongue:
So far, I have chosen: Close Order Doctrine, Sharpshooters, Stormtroopers, and Cameoleline
The fluff behind my army is that the 216th Cadian Heavy Infantry are deployed to the front lines in order to bolster defenses, and to spearhead assualts into enemy territory so that the flanks can make use of the opening of the enemy lines (Pretty much, if any of you have seen the movie, "the Lost Battalion" I'm the Americans). I have taken COD to simulate trench warfare and the the "Stick with eachother" mentality, and Sharshooters + Cameoleline to simulate better training and protection (Since Carapace Armor is a horrible doctrine to take). And finally I took Stormtroopers to simulate Heavy Infantry that provide fire support and deepstriking to take out entrenched objectives.
But I have trouble of what to take for my last doctrine, I was thinking about Die-Hards (Yes, I know Imperial Guard should avoid CC) because the description fits well with my troops but, I want a second opinion.
...And they shall fear the lasgun
Iron discipline is a good choice. It carries a similar theme as Die Hards and is a better doctorine. Also you could make up your own name for it such as "Mateship" which was in a White Dwarf article.
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
Well, if your heavy infantry is used to spearhead assaults (fluff-wise), then I see two really good options available to you. One would dictate the entire look of your army, and that would be mechanized (this could also simulate a "sick with each other" mentality, as they'd be constantly crammed into the tanks). Alternatively, the good old stand-by 5th doctrine, would be drop troops. Think of them as the 101st airborne dropping behind German lines on D-Day. Drop troops also offers the most tactical options.
