i am planning on doing an all infantry gaurd army in my oppinion a heavy weapons squad is tougher to kill than a tank
In the name of the god Emperor of mankind we clense the stars of the witch, the heretic, the mutant, and the zeno for we are his hammer we are the impereal guard and we smash our foes with one great strike for the Emperor, for the Emperor, for the Emperor.
Hey there are, Mr. MMMMMCM.
Just want to introduce you to a function of our great forum, called the Search function. You can locate it quite easily when in the Imperial Guard forum, sort of above all the threads and to the right side. There have been many, many topics about infantry-heavy and all-infantry armies in this forum, and it'd be a good idea to use the Search function to dig those up, as they may answer all of your questions for you. :yes:
Leman russ's are super marine killers and a guard army with these is a lot better when fighting heavy troops like marines as the ap3 cannon can blow away whole squads at a time
All infantry armys are very good in a shooting war with other armys as the number of heavy weapons we can take means that we have a killing range of 36"+ and its harder to kill off a squad in cover then a tank with a lucky lascannon hit
One problem with infantry armys or guard infantry armys is that we have so many men that its hard to move your men were you would like and there is not enough cover to go around.
Aslo close combat can be a real killer for your army as enemy squads can jump from squad to squad because they are so close together and there is no room to space your squads out 7" like you sould
It would take a lot of painting for a all infantry army as were talking about 200+ men
"Hey sarge, this lasgun is heavy. I wish we had something lighter."
