Welcome to Librarium Online!
i have been thinking about making a tooled up honour guard for some time and i have wondered what the set up should me, my first thought would be all get power weapons and bps, and two get plasma pistols and power weapons, and have it lead by dante. i am wondering if thats a good combo, or should i give them plasma guns, or what. finaly i plan on converting the plastic vetran kits to them so if u have any cool conversions ide be happy to kno.
any feed back would be much appreciated
An honor guard is a fun squad to play with but their cost can/is prohibitibly expensive. Unless you plan on mounting them in a land raider i would reccomend taking a SHP to lead them w/ a Exs., Plasma Pistol, and a grail (maybe a death mask). Upgrade one to a SP and give him a Nar/red, one to a vet sgt and give him a pf, and one to a SB and give him a chapter Banner. Add 5 power weapons and you have a unit that rocks in cc whether your charging or not!!!! You might also want to think about term honors for the sq if you don't care about the points cost, just remember that the SHP is a support character, there to make the sq better as a whole and you should do your best to keep him safe in combat.

You are also planning to spend about a million pts on something that could be creamed by one large blast template. Paint them up nice but keep the pts cheap.

This plan of your either way is EXTREMELY expensive in points. dante is already 200 by himself.Originally Posted by pigfat707
Honor guard are Nice, but I find the death company much more apealing then they... simply because of the less points costs spent into the squad.
Even if you are planning on playing 2000 points, which is the only time you ever use an Honour Guard i would still strongly say NO! lol.
The Honour Guard you are describing will cost an enormous amount of points and if you take a Land Raider for them, well that would just send them skyrocketing!
They can be easily taken out by alot of concentrated fire from ap3 and better weapons. Also they can be beaten in assault quite easily too seeing as they are only I4 you can easily send in a unit or character which is I5 and packs power weapons to take care of them.
Death Company are a lot better buy and i reckon you should go that way instead
I use a Honour guard led by SHP or Librarian (versus TS). It has got two PWs sometimes 1 or 2 meltaguns and the rest ordinary vet. assult marines....it has worked fine most of the times I've used it. The only thing (as you alreadu have taken up) is the point cost. My squad usually cost somewhere around 250 - 350 (without the character). That's a little too much for my taste....but hey! They kick ass...
