    Warrior IG?

    Has anyone ever thought of making an IG army with Warrior Weapons, Hardened Fighters, and Close Order Drill? It would be about... 4 pts extra per model, but they'd have +1 Initiative, WS, Attacks (because of 2 ccw's), and Leadership. You could give them a good amount of assault weapons, such as flamers or grenade launchers... and you could make up for the lack of heavy weaponry (sorta) with units attached to the HQ and TANKS!!! Maybe some sentinals, too, because they benefit from Hardened Fighters, as well.

    What do people think?

    I think we've all contemplated such a list at one time or another. It however turns a 60-point basic squad to a 100-pointer with the same 5+ and T3. It also requires B2B contact for the CoD bonus which can leave them flattened by any Blast.

    Cheap CC horde they ain't. That'd go to the Conscripts.

    Now I don't recall if you can combine this with Drop Troops. Because if so then they may have a chance (through sheer volume) of not having to slog their way across a battlefield.

    Probably not a good idea. Their save is still the same and they will still be dieing fast. So not really worth the extra 40 points. You could get another full squad out of two of those. I think I would rather have the full squads.

    Unfortunately, no, you can't combine them with Drop Troops... although you CAN let them infiltrate with Light Infantry.

    Also, if you really wanted to, you could make the last doctrine be Priests, so that when you DO charge into cc, you get to re-roll those all-important Hits. They're expensive, but then again, this probably wouldn't be a competitive army, just one that has fun

    Aww, there goes my dream of throwing some near-Feral "recruits" out of perfectly good Valkyries. But you know Light Infantry might be cool.

    Yeah, and you could probably do Close Order Drill a bit more easily with infiltrate than deep strike. You could maybe give them some assault weapons, like I said before... you know, I'm starting to like this. Later tonight I'll post an army list for 1500 points of infiltrating IG warriors! Just not now, I'm lazy and don't want to get up and look for my IG codex.

    A CC horde IG army has been tried several times. None have been effective at all. Any type of army with large assault elements will tear yout to pieces. Any type of high volume fire army will shoot you to pieces. If your in it for the fluffyness go right ajead but dont expect to win to many games. An IG army with 2 mass conscript platoons meant for cc would be fun though =). If your gonna do it though, defenantly take some rough riders and consider some storm troopers as well as the pimped out command squad with a power weapon heoric senior officer, 4 flamers, oresit with firce weapon and honorifica as well as the powerfist commissar. It packs alot of suprising punch and i have seen that one squad turn games.

    You have to look at it compared to another hoard army - Orks.

    For 9pts you get a Sluggy boy with +1 Toughness, WS 4, +1 Attack and I4 when he Waaaagghs. His Choppa also brings down all 2+ and 3+ saves to a 4+. This is way superior to a Warrior Weapon IG man with all the doctrine upgrades that actually costs more!

    If warrior weapons didnt cost anything I would take them. But thats just me.
