    1000 point urban fighters

    Hallo again everyone. This is my attempt at making a group of city fighters for my urban table. 100% friendly gaming, no tournaments, since I have yet to actually play with an IG force. It's my first attempt at an IG list, and seeing how I already have collected a lot of these pieces I list here, I made plans to possibly buy the rest and fill in the gaps. What started as a few units for apocalypse games to reinforce my chaos troops, like the leman russ and the armored fists, may just grow into an army unto itself. Now I'm here looking for a little advice - should I finish up this list, or is this list too weak to use against anything more than a pack of 12 year old girls?

    The idea I went for was lots of blast weapons, and infantry units that can hide behind buildings and out of sight, lobbing mortars and occupying fortified objectives. If the enemy gets too close they can burst out of hiding and spray them down with meltas and plasmas before grouping up to make use of close order drill. And the vehicles, well they umm... kill stuff. Hopefully.

    I'd personally don't think close order drill or xeno fighters - eldar are very good (eldar's higher I will likely kill you before you get a hit off) but then they could work with the strategy you described.

    If you give one squad a doctrine you need to give all the squads that can take it that doctrine.

    COMMAND SQUAD - HQ 106 POINTS
    -1 senior officer + power weapon, carapace armor, iron discipline
    -2 plasma guns
    -vox caster
    -veteran standard bearer
    Make a jr. officer with honorifica imp.
    INFANTRY PLATOON - TROOPS 140 POINTS
    -1 junior officer + power weapon, carapace armor, iron discipline
    -2 melta guns
    -vox caster

    INFANTRY SQUAD [10]
    -1 melta gun
    -1 mortar
    -vox caster
    -die hards

    INFANTRY SQUAD [10]
    -1 melta gun
    -1 mortar
    -vox caster
    -die hards
    I think your points in this platoon are a bit off because a base platoon (command + 2 squads is 160)
    ARMORED FIST SQUAD - TROOPS 185 POINTS
    -1 grenade launcher
    -1 mortar
    -vox caster
    -die hards
    -chimera transport + multi-laser, heavy bolter, heavy stubber
    Get some smoke launchers on that chimera

    1 HELLHOUND - FAST ATTACK 123 POINTS
    -extra armor, smoke launcher
    Consider a pintle weapon on this.

    1 BASILISK - HEAVY SUPPORT 125 POINTS
    -indirect fire
    Good.

    1 LEMAN RUSS - HEAVY SUPPORT 160 POINTS
    -hull & sponson heavy bolters
    -extra armor
    Very good.

    1 LEMAN RUSS - HEAVY SUPPORT 160 POINTS
    -hull & sponson heavy bolters
    -extra armor
    Again, very good

    Your list seems a bit light on anti tank firepower, you have one weapon above strength 8 to penatrate AV14, and those meltaguns will have trouble getting close to enemy armour without infiltrating or deep striking, you have an extra doctrine point consider drop troops you never know when you may want to deep strike. Also my advise would be to lose the die hards and xeno fighters as your list is slightly over in points because of your infantry platoon.

    Good luck.
