I plan to get a large IG force to go along and pwn with my WH base. I am just gonna put up my list that will evantually come to be but I am going to breach 1000 pt mark with next purchase. And I was reading the entry for the two squads of IG required and it said platoon or armored fist. So does this mean IST don't count for that? If they don't I am going to get armoured fist squads
500 pts in Hq I lord and retinue and infantry 10 SOB 11 SOB 10 guard 10 guard
Fast attack 3 sentinals Cadian 3 sentinals cadian 3 sentinals armageddon
heavy support 1 Exorcist 1 Exorcist 1 Exorcist
Transport 4 Chimeras any left over points would be for more guard infantry squads cause there cheap and will hopefully allow me to get another Chimeras
The whole list without sentinals is 1180 pts if I remember correctly with it is 1645 pts which leaves me room for 2 AF squads and 2 chimeras at an additional 290 pts
So I would be able to tear apart enemys at the 4 FT range while Chimeras rushed forward into range and open fire also dropping off the troops so the infantry would footslog forward with cover fire from 9 sentinals 3 exorcist and 6 Chimeras.
The very existence of flame-throwers proves that some time, somewhere, someone said to themselves, You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I'm just not close enough to get the job done.
Are you those people?
No, IST do not count towards the two IG Troops choices needed to use Sentinels and/or a Leman Russ. They're a totally different army! Likewise, IG Troops choices do not count towards the mandatory two Troops choices you must field to have a legal army - those must be legal WH Troops choices (IST or So. So if you want a WH army with a Leman Russ and/or Sentinels, you need 2 WH Troops and 2 IG Troops first.And I was reading the entry for the two squads of IG required and it said platoon or armored fist.
