I've just started IG , more specificly Vostroyans. I already have the Command squad and half a platoon. Should I use snipers in the Spec. Wep. Support Command squad, or should I use them lone? For the elite, Stormtroopers wouldn't really fit (I'm quite dissapointed thought), so I'm stuck with the Veterans. Are they any good? What should I take as a second troop choice?
Thanks for some feedback.
If you have the models and the points, a second platoon of men is always welcome. More men = More guns, heavy weapons, special weapons, etc. Otherwise, a cheaper option may be an Armored Fist squad. Armored fist squad can be geared up to handle infantry pretty well, and one of the few places a flamer could be useful. xD
You could always take a Grenadier squad and say they're the elite Voystran commandoes.
I don't know too much about the Voystran's so I'm just tossing random bits that work with regular IG. ^^;; Anyway, good luck!
FYI. Vets are REALLY good... better than storm troopers. So dont be disapointed that you have to use them.
As far as snipers go, Ratlings are the only really cost effective option. However, if you have the Vos models, the HQ spec weapons squad is the place for them.
As far as a second platoon, a command squad and at least two infantry squads with weapons iis a great choice. But an Armoured Fist is also good.
It's worth a krak!
I would just like to add that you can get Hardened Veterans at exactly the same price and value as Stormtoopers by buying Carapace Armour for them. Now both have 4+ armour saves, almost similiar profiles BUT the H. Veterans can have one extra special weapon.
Pity abt the 1 squad limit though. But there's no stopping taking that Veteran doctrine!
