    Price to start again?

    I bought my Guard slowly, and scratch built some things. I want to know about how much it would be (in American $) to start a guard army, just infantry. No, I'm not yet sure what I want in it, otherwise I would figure it out myself, and I may be designing it for a friend anyway. So, just infantry with heavy and special weapons in each squad, no tanks/sentinels/chimeras, and 2000 points. I'll start writing a list, but an estimate would be nice.

    And as a matter of curiosity, whats the most youve shelled out at once? Do you save and buy all at once, or buy things slowly?

    How many guardsmen does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
    None, their lasguns work fine.

    Ah I'd say its a bit more than that.

    Lets say and average squad will cost you 100pts, including special weapons and heavy weapon.

    A box of 20 cadians, about $30?
    Heavy weapon $10-$15?
    Special Weapon $6?

    So say its about 20 squads of men, that works out, roughly to be $600-$700, when you add comand squad etc.

    Woudl you be using Kasrkins or Ogryns?

    Wow. What if you converted Cadians to be stormtroopers and did Grenadiers? 750 pts for the grenadiers, and 405 pts for the Stormies...1155...so that leaves 800 pts. Cmd squad takes about 100.700 pts left. Add 3 Heavy Platoons, that shoud be about 700 (dont have codex accessible).

    90 Cadians, 90/20=4.5, so 5. 5*35=175$
    105 for the three heavy weapon platoons...
    So thats 280$ without special wps, other than flamers and grenade launchers (oh, yeah, wonderful weapons...)
    90$ for the stormies spec wps, so 370$.
    with the tax in my area thats $400.53, and thats doing cheap guard.
    So, $700 is probably about right for a normal, balanced 2000pt force.

    Aside from the topic, in your opinion, would a 2000pt infantry guard army cost more, or would a 2000pt armored company cost more?

    2000pt infantry army hands down, there WAY expensive compared to tanks

    tnaks 200pts each (roughly) each one costs $85 (im working in NZ dollars here) so thats 10 tanks, 10X$85=$850

    if you're willing to work with a Mechanized force,

    350 bucks is a respectable army (7 * the 50 buck "Armored Fist" Boxed Set, scores you 2 platoons, and a HQ... but no real heavy weapons...)


    Otherwise, if you look out there there's a respectable "Cadian Army Boxed Set" (Not the battle force, but an army set with 30 infantry, an armored fist, sentinel, 2 hqs, and a heavy support squad) for around 200 bucks...

    i shelled out something like 300 for my 1500 - 2000 point IG army with that boxed set, a leman russ, 3 sentinels, and another armored fist... (I use Carapace and Drop Troops as the core of my army, the other doctrines are still under debate...)

    at this point i'm waiting on the new guard so i can make 'em into some custom Grenadiers/Veterans...
