I asked this once before, but i'll do it again....Why can I never find any Imperial Guard battle reports? whenever I do (white dwarf, on the battle reports forum, etc....) there all about how some smurf army kicked our heads in last weekend. How bout we start posting some where the Guard win? we really should get on this because it's making me depressed!..come on...please?
Are talking about batreps in white dwarfs or just in general? The guard one once when allied with the smurfs, but in every other one I've seen they lost becauase they fought an army that got new stuff.
In an Imperium of a million worlds, what is the death of one world in the cause of purity?

i have seen guard lose beacue of pathetic army lists... honestly who takes conscripts against orks... i would rather spend 170 points on a leman russ that could blow them apart...
sure, you could make dodgy army lists to let your opponent win, but i thought a high priority in the game was winning... think about it.Originally Posted by Kaiser
I'd say having fun is the priority. Making a list to specifically counter and annihilate your opponent wouldn't make for a very fun game in my opinion, but each to his own.Originally Posted by Reflex
oh because taking a leman russ makes it boring and un-fun for everyone. in most 1000 point armies i see at least 1 russ tank, and i suppose taking one is cheesy now because orks cant blow them up... YEAH right!Originally Posted by Kaiser
I did a couple battle reports vs Tau and I win about 50/50 vs them. With photos and everything. It should be somewhere in the battle reports section of these forums.. kind of old though.
I dont think that you can make a cheesy guard army Kaiser as our troops can only take plasma guns for marines and lascannons for tanks so there isnt a lot of room for cheese
(i like lascannons better then missile launchers)
If your fighting marines whats the point of taking flamers or grenade launchers when for a few more points you can take a plasma gun which is the only weapon that will kill a marine with each shot
Just look in white drawf at the fun lists they use that never win as they cant take out heavy armour
Think of it this way, if you were a marine player wouldnt you want your opponent to have the same chance of winning that you have as you have the better army and if i was playing i would like it to be a close game not one where squads of guardsmen cant even kill one marine
