    Starter Army (500 pts)

    New to IG. This is what I came up with after a little light reading. The Games Workshop I go to is pretty well populated and due to lack of funds this army will have to stand up to any army that comes its way. I choose the sentials as an attempt to help the army hold its own to heavily armoured units, but it probably isn't enough. I choose ratlings because of their awsomness (hobbiits with sniper rifles ). This list seems like it wouldn't hold up in many situations, so criticism please.

    HQ:
    Command Squad = 139
    bolt pistol + power fist
    vox + carapace

    Elite:
    Ratlings = 50

    Troops:
    Platoon squad = 322
    2X Infantry
    3X bolt pistol
    commissar
    vox

    Fast Attack:
    2 X sentinal = 250
    2 X plasma cannon
    2 X camo netting
    2 X smoke launchers

    Total = 498

    I'm not really sure how Platoons work. does the commisar "stubborn" rule apply to the whole platoon or just the squad hes in? same thing with the vox, does it apply to everyone or no?

    Welcome to Guard and the Forum too!

    HQ:
    Powerfists on Commanders look cool and it's very satisfing when you club some Chaos Terminators around the Face. However you might be better off spending those points on Guns. Plasmaguns/G-Launchers or just an Autocannon to keep things Cheap.

    Carapace might not be worth it to be honest. It's alot of points just to increase your save by one. Consider Camo cloaks or some such and then hide them behind an infantry squad so they get a nice 3+ Cover save. At 500pts though i'd not bother and use the points else where.

    TROOPS:
    Platoons. Well first off platoons consist of 2 Infantry squads and a Platoon Command squad. Now thats a minimum of 25 men. I'm not sure you have all these squads as you just list 2 infantry squads. Also, each 'platoon' only counts as one Troops choice. You can take veteran/penal legion as individual troops choices but no infantry squads.

    Commissars and Vox rules will only apply to the squad they're in. However you can combine infantry squads together so you only need to by one of each for the 'combined' unit. In regards to vox you will need a vox in the squad recieving the orders AND the unit issuing the orders.

    FAST:
    Sentinels are great but at this point level these guys are just too expensive for what you get or indeed need. 2 Armoured sentinels with Autocannons and then no upgrades is more than enough to go tank hunting.


    If you're after a 500pt list this is what i'd throw together.

    HQ:
    Company Command Squad. 2 G-Launchers, Powerfist. -75pts

    TROOP 1
    Platoon A
    Platoon Command Squad. Autocannon -40pts
    Infantry Squad. Autocannon, G-Launcher -65pts
    Infantry Squad. Autocannon, G-Launcher -65pts

    TROOP 2
    Veteran Squad. 3 G-Launchers, Autocannon, Demolitions -125pts

    FAST:
    Armoured Sentinel. Autocannon -65pts (I think)
    Armoured Sentinel. Autocannon -65pts

    That revised list only comes to 490 points because the armored auto-cannon sentinels are 60 points each so I'd do this quick revision based on Borak's list which is great for this point level:

    HQ:
    Company Command Squad. 2 G-Launchers, Powerfist. -75pts

    TROOP 1
    Platoon A
    Platoon Command Squad. Autocannon, 2 G-Launchers -50pts
    Infantry Squad. Autocannon, G-Launcher -65pts
    Infantry Squad. Autocannon, G-Launcher -65pts

    TROOP 2
    Veteran Squad. 3 G-Launchers, Autocannon, Demolitions -125pts

    FAST:
    Armoured Sentinel. Autocannon -60pts
    Armoured Sentinel. Autocannon -60pts


    500pts

    Hello there, Koj. Welcome for Librarium Online. Feel free to contact either myself or another moderator if you have any questions. In the meantime, I'm including a link to our forum rules. In it you will find that listing individual point costs for models is prohibited; it is also copyright infringement. You can, however, list the total points of a given squad, or the points for a single model if it comprises a squad on its own. For this reason, I've removed all the individual point costs from your army list and tallied them up per squad.

    Also, to let you know, this thread belongs in the army list section, which can be accessed at the top of the IG homepage. No worries. I'll go ahead and move it. I just so happen to have this little doohickey from Back to the Future that's been modified for just this purpose.

    Then again, you could have a go at Penal Legions. I love using them Might not win you every game though

    HQ

    Lord Commissar : 85
    Power Fist

    Elite

    Guardsman Marbo : 65

    Troops

    Penal Legion : 80

    Penal Legion : 80

    Penal Legion : 80

    Fast Attack

    Armored Sentinels : 80
    Autocannon x 2

    Well that still leaves 30 points which I have no idea what to do with
