ok im kinda newbish to an impirial guard army but i thought it would be cool to start a drop troop one. of course one of the doctrines would be drop troops the others would be storm trooper squads, speacal weapons teams and heavy weapon teams and 1 more but i dunno what(sugestions would help). i would also have no tanks mainly just valkyrie with some storm troopers and vulters hear and there, and some sentinals.i also need some info of what heavy and special weapons i should give to my troops. so yea any help would be cool .thx.
I play most of my games against a Valkryrie, and they are really nasty things. But not to have any tanks as IG limits your choises a lot (cyclops tanks are nasty too).
Your opponent will have to make a special list to deal with two or more flyers, including anti-air platforms etc.
One of my tactics against flyers is to get more flyers then my opponent, I do that with my Dark Eldar, fielding some Razors.
With my Tau I field a Skyray, but it is always the first target a flying enemy goes for (obviosly).
Flyers, hate to fight them, love to use them. And remember they are official rules, your opponent might cry, scream or even refuse to play them, wich makes him very childish and you the moral winner.
the for the reply. yea no tank but its not exactly like u can parashoot a tank down can ya? well i dont think gw would say so any way....
they use pods for tanks, and guard drop boats (see eisenhorn nove 1 Xenos)
id go for carapace as my last or sharpshooters.

THX* not the
There is actually a codex based on drop troops. There called mobile infantry found at grim stalkers sight. I copied the codex and its awsome. They add a few suits and stuff and some special infantry and infantry weapons. Very cool, you should take a look
Just do a search on google or yahoo for "grim stalkers imperial guard"
When goblins blow themselves up its stupidity. But when humans blow themselves up its bravery....odd isn't it
well if you take valkryies then you might as well take grenadiers since those can fly into battle
