    Imperial Guard and your opponents?

    ** I started a poll like this in the Necron board and I think it would be interesting to hear the same thoughts on other armies **

    You announce that you will be playing your Imperial Guard.

    What are some of the common statements you hear from your opponents?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Those of you without a Imperial Guard force chime in as well on the Poll.

    You look accross the table and see the Imperial Guard massing for assault.

    What are you thinking, when you see Imperial Guard lining up against your prize army?

    Good poll question. Most opponents just make lasgun jokes and laugh at flak armor. Luckily, that just makes victories that much sweeter.

    Yes I get the "it will be a nice, easy victory for me".

    Then my Lascannons pound down his tanks and MCs, my Plasmas eat his 2 and 3+ save troops, and my Lemans and Hellhound eat his infantry!:w00t:

    My frist few battles nobody respected us IG, but then I racked up a nice 6 battle sinning streak and they learned their lessons.

    Now I get alot of "Oh no I'm dead" and "this'll be close"

    i find that its usually a close battle but non of my opponents ever make any comments except for the odd curse word as i blow apart their squads using a leman russ or unleash the true destructive power of a leman russ exterminator. Players have gotten the jist to shut up when IG are in town.

    Nice easy win.

    The Guard just dont get any respect. My opponents see a couple of tanks as threats and thats it.
    This is good though, because I like to keep my strengths hidden... say Las cannons in squads.

    We just cant get no respect!

    Most opponents laugh when they hear I am playig IG. They stop while I am deploying, usually somewhere between 80 and 120 guardsmen.

    Geronimo, look out below. Here comes the brother with the offbeat flow. I just fell from the mother ship.

    Well I play Mech IG or AC with Infantry. So my opponents laugh until they see the entire 6' deployment zone fill up with vehicles with 5-6 pie plate droppers. Then they really cringe when I inform them I still have upwards of 30 infantry with 4+ saves. It quickly becomes a what do I shoot at first the 4-6 chimera's dumping 9 shots a turn into my squads/transports, Bassilisk, Demolisher, or three russ's + command exterminator that can eat through a squad a turn.

    But the typical comment is how do you afford so many vehicles... the answer of course is E-bay ( but I also highly recommend supporting your local game store through sales).

    My favorite are the arrogant marine newbs who laugh at flak armor. Then they shut up when I deploy two basalisks and more than 160 guardsmen. The 160 guardsmen is what really gets them.
