    Hi guys! I am wondering whether or not i should continue adding to my Imperial Guard army, or if i should start a new army altogether like Choas :ph34r:

    My current army contains:
    HQ: 3 Command Squads (Heroic Senior Officer, 2 Junior Officers), 3 Commissars, 2 Sanctioned Psykers, Commissar Yarrick, Nork Deddog (2nd ed.).
    Troops:60 guardsmen, 2 Chimeras.
    Both: Colonel Schaeffer's Last Chancers (15 models), *3 heavy bolters, *3 autocannons, *3 mortars, * 4 lascannons, *3 missile launchers.
    Heavy Support: 2 Leman Russ Battle Tanks, 1 Basilisk, 1 Leman Russ Demolisher.
    Fast attack: 2 Hellhounds, 20 Rough Riders, 2 Sentinels.
    Elite: 10 Ratlings. All 4 Assassins.

    What are your opinions guys and gals? What i could possibly add to this army that wouldnt just be for show

    Storm Troopers

    I like them, but that's just me.

    Good suggestion Llama. It would be nice to actually use Storm Trooper models rather than using regular Guardsmen all the time

    Thanks Llama.

    Dude, it's up to you. I'd add more becuase, no offense or anything, but your force looks kinda vanilla. I wouldn't change becuase with the new doctrines, just when you thought guard was getting boring, you can make your force be whatever you want. I'd stick with IG. Oh, and one more thing, don't listen to Jackass.

    Hi, Sergei Mikhailavich Gorbachev, thanks for the input. I know the choice is up to me, that is obvious as I started the thread asking for opinions rather than answers. I generally find that it is good practice to ask other people&#39;s opinions so I can view the topic from another perspective, such as your own. Often the viewpoints other people take I will never have considered initially or at any time in the future.

    I do not understand, however, what do you mean by vanilla. I know the term means bland or regular, but since I own 22 of the 27 possible units for my army I do not see what I am missing in order to create a varied force. Perhaps you mean I need for more infantry or something as it is the only area I cannot max-out in the force selection slots. If you could be more specific about vanilla and what you think I could add that would be much more helpful.

    Don&#39;t be offended, theres nothing wrong with &#39;vanilla&#39;.

    Well, you&#39;ve got my opinion. Vanilla - lets see. I mean it&#39;s a lot of what everyone gets. Maybe you have some cool conversions, but if not, get something to add spunk to your army. Maybe some forge world, or some kick ass converting. Doctrines to customize your force. Maybe you&#39;ll think of some fluff and make them allied with SoB. Something interesting like that. Make head swaps for things like hardend veteran squads. Make a mounted Commisar. Experienced players love things like that, as it makes your army unique, interesting, and fun to play.

    I&#39;m also amazed at your self-restraint in the category of Elites. Should be coming to an end about.... now&#33; Get yourself some storm troopers, do some converting with basic infantry and make hardened veterans out of standard converted infantry.

    Kasrkin use the ST statline. They can&#39;t DS or infiltrate though.

    BTW: Reavered: What type of IG do you play? I&#39;d reccomend getting some of the other kind for head swaps and the like.

    I would just buy about 20 more boxes of cadians.... b/c you can never have too many guardsmen.

    That would be something else fielding 6 platoons at 5 squads each... , some true Russian tactics then, can you say charge ?
