    I would consider beafing up your HQ command section with a few close combat weapons, a vet. sgt with a banner and at least a power fist for your colonel. I know it sounds like a waste of points when your up against anybody who is better in H-T-H (ie everybody exsept Tau and grots) but it's what I always do and it works for me.
    Hold the HQ section back behind your battle line, then as your line takes the enemy charge you can use the superior leadership and banner to stop your boys running off, and then you can counter charge the bad guys. You would be suprised how well this tactic works, and so will your opponent.
    Good luck.

    i like the sound of a power fist on a human smacking guants and orks etc. on the head, but i wanna keep it in line with the ww2 soviet army and i cant see where the power fist comes in.
    The banner sounds good, should i get a few comm-links?
    Thank you

    Comm links are only usefull if your forces are spread out.

    Good theme, I always thought that the Imperial Guard codex resembled the Red Army. There is no reason not to have a earthshaker cannon or two and to go with the theme got all 5 commissars. Some mortars would be a fine addition and don't limit yourself to 1500 this is the Imperial Gurad, aye

    I have been thinking about your soviet army, and I had an idea. You could use the City fight army list published in chapter aproved. It allows more flexabitlity in your troop choices and it even lets you take urban snipers,
    which are very similar to death world snipers. If you have ever seen the Jude Law film Enermy at the Gates you will know why this is a good idea. If you haven't seen it yet then I surgest you should before you do your army. It's awsome and feels very authentic.

    I'd recommend making less platoons and more squads in the platoons. Also, Vanquishers aren't as great as they would appear. I'd go for the standard Leman Russ.

    A Vanquisher is better than you think. Out of every tank in the IG the Vanquisher is the most lethal tank-hunter. The AT shell means it can pierce anything easily.
