i havnt thought of a name or any fluff for the army other than a light infantry (hence the hvy bolters and missile launchers rather than heavier stuff)...
2 plasma guns
x3 IS - Hvy bolter & grenade launcher
X2 hvy weapons squads - 3 missile launchers
Vet Squad - harker, 2 Grenade launchers
Leman Russ - bare
3 scout sentinels - auto-cannons
let me know what you think
oh, just thought any ideas for names will be a big help
RecklessFable's Journey to Mediocrity (Painting an IG army)
I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
don;t waste a CCS on suicidal tnak hunting duties. Or even better give the meltas to Harkers veterans (drop the g launchers to get an extra one) and give the platoon command flamers so you can overlook the BS 3 issue.
Other than that i tend to agree with RecklessFable on the HWTs, they die fat to easily and at this points level with no other huge infantry threats about they will have EVERY antiinfantry weapon the enemy has pointed at them. Another Russ would be much better, get the extra points from dropping one of the sentinels.
Hope that helps.
Yeah Reckless and Nbolo gave all of the useful adivce for your army composition, however I might be able to help with your regiments name.
-A list of pre-made GW regiments
List of Imperial Guard regiments - Lexicanum
Some of these have fluff and such but if you spend enough time i'm sure you'd find something helpful, either ideas or as a regiment for you to use.
-Here's a list of some specific regiments you wan want to look into.
Drookian Fen Guard - Lexicanum
Zuvenian Light Foot - Lexicanum
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
thanks for the input,i'll get onto re-writing the list with your comments in mind (somethings might not change for fluff reasons tho)
the main army i face is eldar, with quite a mobile CQC force so i was planning on firing a lot at them...
as for the name i was thinking of these;
Zuvenian Light Foot - Lexicanum
as i own the novel i can take inspiration from there in kitting them out and modeling them..
thanks for the help
ok s the list has changed a bit (at least i think so)
HQ - CCS - 2 plasma guns (kept back untill there needed for support)
Pcs - 2 flamers (same idea as CCS)
IS1 + 2 hvy bolter, grenade launcher (provide support/ capture and hold objectives)
IS3 - Autocannon, grenade launcher (provide support/ capture and hold objectives)
2x hvy weapons squads - 3 missile launchers (take out most armour/ my friends avatar )
Vet Squad - 3 meltaguns, 3 wi shotguns
Chimera - hull hvy flamer (tank hunters)
Storm Trooper squad; power weapon, grenade launcher, flamer (provide support and help hold objectives)
2 scout sentines - autocannons (mop up survivors)
Leman russ - bare
as i said before my main enemy is eldar, and he doesnt posses that much AT weapons so i feel my LRBT is safe...
havnt been able to get on much but have played a couple of games wi that list and its won 3 drew 1 and lost 1
thanks for all the help..
p.s the army is now called the vardan 992nd i beleive (cant remmeber off top off top of my head)
