Anyone got any advice on how to buy an IG border patrol (My first 40k army, whopee!), cheapest way possible? I'm definately going to buy a shock trooper box, but what else? Chimera? Sentinel? Heavy weapon teams? Oh, it should also be moderately competitive. ^_^
Should be playing against Tau mostly, if that is of any help.
Many thanks in advance!
Cheapast way to buy warhammers of any sort? Ebay.

IF your looking for cheap stuff nad you dont want to use ebay there is laways the cadain battlforce, add that plus a cadain shoock troops box and a command sqaud and your good to go.
well, first you need 20 troops at least and one command squad, i would go with 30 or 40 infantry, just for fun
if yo field 30, you can get 2 boxes, then use the remaining 10 guys for a platoon command
that gives you 220 pts, so give the commander a pwr swd, and a vox, and all the other zquads a vox, then you have245, so take a squad of either vets or stormes, then you should be at the limit with some extra weapons
Cool, so 2 shock trooper boxes seem to be the cheapest way. Thanks!
I would suggest that you buy the heavy weapons platoon box, because IG is nothing without their heavy weapons. I fight tau most of the time, and the way to make them cry (if they're mech) is to take as many missile launchers and lascannons as possible. Otherwise, get heavy bolters or autocannons to shoot up his fire warriors and light vehicles.
Despite your excellent advice, I managed to sell off one of my lungs and bought one shock trooper box, the command box, the heavy weapon box and a sentinel, any tips on how to get to 500 pts and at the same time keep the "scouty" look of the army?
for 400 points i would take 2 sentinels, a chimera and 10 troops... and maby some vets...
sorry reflex but you need 25 guys MINIMUM for a troop choice, so yo need a little more
