So i was rumageing through boxes of stuff doing a general tidy up and came across a box of my old imperial guard and decided to start a new imperial guard army.. though i have no idea how to structure it. I am happy to buy new units but would like to include as much as the stuff as possible, they are mixed faction though(i already have a large amount of fluff to explain this) ;
ive kind of already arranged them in squads but am happy to change or mix and match.
various old characters
classic cadian ;
2 crew and lascannon
Vahallan / Tallarn
Val sergeant and a Tal sergeant with plasma
Val Grenade launcher
7 guardsmen (Val and tallarn)
maybe i should split theese into seprate squads?
cadian new style;
around 13 guardsmen
rocket heavy weapons team
3x mortar teams
Squad of 10 storm troopers
5 ratling snipers
+ 5 really old commando style guardsmen
1 commando with what i beleive is a melta
any help would be awesome , what do i need to make this legal? what should i add / takeaway to make a rounded 2000 pts list? ill be buying the codex next week. If someone could post up a rough list that this fits into that would be nice, thanks.
What you have isn't a lot, i'm not sure if you even have enough for 1000pts. Also your comando guardsmen I beleive would be catachans, they might not be i'd need a pic to be sure.
IG Best Gen 1st overall of 10 DE 4th overall of 6
Eldar 3rd Overall/Best General of 26--2nd Overall/Best General of 7--1st Overall/Best General of 11
They sound like the OOP stormtroopers. back pack and beret right?
As for what you have what fluff are you using to get them all together? It depends on that really as to the mix of what you use.
As vanrooyen pointed out there isn't a great deal here so pretty much all of it can be used. If you want a 2000 point list perhaps see my how to get started thread for a few ideas. All you need to do there is sub in what you already have.
I would suggest starting with a 1000 point list at most though it'll stop you making loads of mistakes IMHO.
If it were me the mordians would end up in command positions perhaps even use the lasgun mordians as sarges in the squads could look cool.
I'd use the Tallarns as vets and get a few more to make a decent vet unit, same with valahallans perhaps though they woudl look ok in the squads, beef it all out with a healthy mix of plastic cadians. Use the old school cadians as heavy weapons and command squad extras they do look cool like that. again the old school stormies could be used either as vets or stormies, the other stormies perhaps use as grenadiers?
pretty much there are so many options you are going to need to write up at least a 500 if not 1000 point list for us to help more really.
hope that helps
thanks for the replys, i guess im just going to wait intill i get the codex and then sort it all out using your suggestions.
my basic fluff not going into much detail is; They are the remaining few of a war that engulfed an enitre planet , the planet had extremely variying weather. Hence they are a miss match of soliders Vahallansfrom the ice areas, tallern from the desert's , mordians from the imperial city ect.... Eventually nearly the entire planet was taken by the enemy, the remaining men, remnance of the worlds army's hunkerd together defending one last scr4ap of land. It was 47 days before a transport ship arrived. They returned to a heroes welcome from there fellow imperial guardsmen, but Anger'd that they didnt stand and fight, the Emperor wanted them to be executed. Scared it might cause decent amongst the ranks and damage moral the order was never passed. Instead reformed into a single army they are orderd to fight in the most hellish of places and bloody wars. The emperor hoping they get whiped out at no order fo his own.
