    noob since Rogue Trader, 500pt army list ideas. need advice.

    as you can guess from the title. I haven't played in about 15 years and have just decided to get back into it with a guard army. Will start off small. I know the new codex is coming but i want to get a feel for it now. here are two lists i have come up with so far.

    Manpower based list

    command squad
    senior officer + krak and frag
    4 guardsmen + vox

    heavey support

    3x heavey bolters teams

    3x autocannon teams

    infantry platoon

    command squad
    junior Officer +krak and frag
    4 guardsmen

    infantry squad 1
    1 sergeant
    9guardsmen + vox +grenade launcher

    infantry squad 2
    1 sergeant
    9guardsmen + vox +grenade launcher

    infantry squad 3
    1 sergeant
    9guardsmen + vox +grenade launcher

    500pts

    General List

    command squad
    senior officer + krak and frag
    4 guardsmen + vox

    heavey support

    3x autocannon teams

    infantry platoon

    command squad
    junior Officer +krak
    4 guardsmen

    infantry squad 1
    1 sergeant
    9guardsmen + vox +grenade launcher

    infantry squad 2
    1 sergeant
    9guardsmen + vox +grenade launcher

    Tank
    Leman russ + lascannon and side heavey bolters

    500pts

    I eventually want to put together a well rounded larger guard army which doesn't contain too much special squads and relies on numbers of standard infantry and tanks.

    im sure there is plenty wrong with my choices (vox?) so rip them apart and put them back together and explain why.

    vox isn't worth it at 500 points getting rid of them will free up some useful points. rely on leadership bubbles instead (keeping your troops within 12" of an officer) guardsmen work best when massed together

    so if I am working with the manpower based army, I strip out the vox, that leaves 20pt and perhaps I should strip out the krak and frag grenades from officers and give one guy a grenade launcher in each command squad so I think that leaves 10 pts. any idea where they should go? melta bombs for the officers?

    steer clear of any close combat weapons (apart from on ogryns) you will get ripped apart before you can use them
