    1500pt Competative Versatile Army

    This is my first imperial guard army and was looking for some constructive criticism and tips

    HQ
    CCS-115
    Regimental Standard, Medi-Pack, Vox-caster, Plasma Gun

    Troops
    Infantry Platoon- 225

    PCS, Platoon Standard, Vox-caster, Plasma Gun
    2x Infantry Squad, Grenade Launcher, Vox
    Special weapon Squad, 3x Grenade Launcher

    Veteran Squad-135
    Vox, 2x Flamer, Heavy Flamer, Grenadier Doctrine

    Elite
    10x Stormtroopers- 185
    Sergeant Power Weapon, 2x Grenade Launchers
    10x Stormtroopers- 185
    Sergeant Power Weapon, 2x Flamers

    Fast Attack
    2x Vendettas- 280
    Heavy Bolter Sponsons

    Heavy Support
    2x Leman Russ Battle Tanks
    Lascannon, Heavy Bolter Sponsons

    Points: 1495

    Vendettas are used for anti-tank and transport to objectives
    Stormtroopers are used for objectives and getting close up (anti-Tau)
    Grenade Launchers are versatile and good against hordes and elite armies

    I hope you used a chaos icon, because I'm really not in the mood for scatter

    Alright, well, now that I'm here, I might as well get to it.

    I think my job is done here.

    HQ:
    The medipack isn't really needed on these boys. I'd use the pointsto get them Camo cloaks or some more special weapons. Maybe just put the points towards something else.
    I'd grab another plasma gun for these boys too. And a Chimera.

    TROOPS:
    PCS, fine. Plasma is expensive for a BS3 model. I'd put this model in the CCS and fine some cheap special weapons or a heavy weapon to put in here.
    Infantry: Grab these boys some heavy weapons. Autocannons go well with G-Launchers and are cheap too.
    Assault squads. They fine and cheap which is the way it should be. Maybe ditch a g-Launcher though and get a Democharge to deal with any Marines that get close. If you have to find points for extra guns or tanks i'd loose these. They're a points filler basically.

    Vets: Why are you wasting these guys BS4 with Flamers? Get some better special weapons like Melta or Plasma. If you can find the points give them a Chimera so they can get close to the enemy fast and cause the most damage.

    ELITES:
    1 These guys are too expensive. Drop these guys to Vets with Grenadiers. Use the left over points to grab them Chimeras. This will give you more scoring units to take care of Objectives.
    2 Give them some guns to make use of their Bs4 like the Vets. Plasma or Melta. Why pay through the teeth for these Guys AP3 Lasguns and then replace them with another gun?
    3: Ditch the Power Weapon. If you get in combat you're dead meat.

    FAST:
    Good.

    HEAVY:
    Good, drop the Lascannon though. This Tanks a troop killer so the Lascannon isn't needed.


    OVERALL:
    You've got a Lack of AP2 guns in here. If someone brings lots of Terminators or Monstrous creature you'll struggle to cope. Also you've got a lack of Heavy weapons in your list meaning you'll struggle with lots of tanks. Vendettas fill this gap nicely but chucking in a few Autocannons on your platoon squads can't be a bad thing.

    Superior stamina may win battles, but the ability to quickly recover wins wars.

    Grenadiers suck, 30 points you won't use if played right.

    I'd stick with 3x Melta in the SWS. Demo Charges are fun but sometimes that tank HAS to die.

    Buy 1 Veteran a Chimera, put the other in a Vendetta and a SWS in the other Vendetta.

    Drop the sponsons on the LRBT. That, plus demo charge and Chimera points saved can buy you something shiny. Also drop the Voxs if you need those points.

    Changes

    No Chimera for 1 vet squad
    -55
    Points: 1395

    No SWS
    -65
    Points: 1330

    Add 1 Veteran Squad
    Vox, 3x Melta, Demolitions Doctrine

    There I please both lord borak and prince of excess
    I think sponsons are worth it to make sure you take out an entire squad whereas there might be 1 or 2 left from the battle cannon.

    Why are grenadiers a waste of points?
    What did you mean by something shiny?

    Originally I was asking for help not more questions, but thanks anyway
    ----------
    Points: 1465
    this still leaves me with 35 extra points!
    Also another question:
    Can a heavy weapon attched to a infantry squad fire at a different target to the squad?
    Answers would be apprieciated

    They have a shorter range and are quite expensive in points.

    Why are grenadiers a waste of points?

    4+ save isn't amazingly better than 5+ and these guys are going to die anyway. If you stay in a chimera or in cover then you save yourself quite a few points.

    What did you mean by something shiny?

    As in a tank or marbo or something like that I suspect.


    Also another question:
    Can a heavy weapon attched to a infantry squad fire at a different target to the squad?

    No
