    [1000] Mech Guard

    ok, here is my first attempt at a mech Guard list. The doctrines I am absolutley using are: Mechanised, Ogryns and Storm Troopers. As for the other 2 doctrines I was thinking of using Chem Inhalers and Carapace armor. The armor will really help against marines and the I like the I dea of my men NOT running because they are too damn stoned :lol:

    ok heres the list:

    HQ(266)
    -Junior Officer: Honorifica, Plasma Pistol, Power Sword
    -Heavy Bolter Team
    -Medic
    -Master Vox
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB
    -Sentinel
    -Lascannon

    Troops
    1st Platoon(375)
    Command Squad
    -Junior Officer: Bolter
    -Plasma Gun
    -Vox
    -Missile Launcher
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB
    Squad One
    -Sarge with lasgun
    -Plasma Gun
    -Autocannon
    -Vox
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB
    Squad Two
    -Sarge with lasgun
    -Plasma Gun
    -Missile Launcher
    -Vox
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB

    1st Armored Fist(190)
    -Sarge with lasgun
    -Plasma Gun
    -Lascannon
    -Vox
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB

    Heavy Support
    Leman Russ(177)
    -Hull Mounted Lascannon
    -Sponson Heavy Bolters
    -Pintle Heavy Stubbers


    :::::::TOTAL:::::::
    998

    Not much planned in the way of tactics. I will use the platoon command Squad to advance and secure any objectives, and they can hold out until the others arrive. The armored fist and Leman Russ are my Anti-Armor Support, with the Leman blasting away while the AF trys to flank enemy armor for a better shot. I may remove the Commisar and replace him with a Cadian Sentinel.

    Please rate this :lol:

    EDIT
    Ok, I took out the carapace armor on my Junior Officer and the Commisar is also out, they were replaced by the Sentinel with a lascannon.

    The list looks lean and good, just make sure you have the Lascannon Sentinal in the back, as they can die easy.

    I would have the Leman Russ with just a hull HB and Sponson HB, and drop the Subber on it. Then I would take those points and upgrade the missle launcher to a Lascannon. It is more expensive, but worth while.

    Cheers,!!

    Well this is my belief of Mechanized guard,

    1. Always stay cheap, dont over soup anything up, you should come in lots of tanks, and mass so i dont really like the idea of carapace armour.. if you do that, reather get grenadiers yeah?

    2. Close order drill would be ideal, if you know templates are not a problem, therfore you can save points off from vox.

    3. Mechanized guard MIGHT have some struggles on lower point game, as there is not much access to all the tanks XD. but they excel if those oppenents cannot handle AV.

    4. I dont really like my guardsmen holding plasmas.. maybe leave it to storm troops
    because they are load of points, and dont have the best aim.. and die when it overheats...

    recheck your points, i believe your have your infantry platoon rather very cheap in points.


    5. you MAY take sponsoons, but its not requried XD
    to keep things cheap, like in small games, dont put any sponsoons on your lemans, simply because you will be firing your ord primarily and this does not allow you to shoot anything else.

    HQ(266)
    -Junior Officer: Honorifica, Plasma Pistol, Power Sword
    -Heavy Bolter Team
    -Medic
    -Master Vox
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB
    -Sentinel
    -Lascannon


    are you going to get close in hth with this group or something? i say drop plasma pistol and power sword.. i mean you've got a heavy bolter, i dont think your getting close?


    keep your sentinel back, as said.

    Troops
    1st Platoon(375)
    Command Squad
    -Junior Officer: Bolter
    -Plasma Gun
    -Vox
    -Missile Launcher
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB
    Squad One
    -Sarge with lasgun
    -Plasma Gun
    -Autocannon
    -Vox
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB
    Squad Two
    -Sarge with lasgun
    -Plasma Gun
    -Missile Launcher
    -Vox
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB

    Recheck your points,
    A non equipped minimal platoon should cost 410 points without any weapons.
    your equiped with tons on these guys XD

    1st Armored Fist(190)
    -Sarge with lasgun
    -Plasma Gun
    -Lascannon
    -Vox
    -Chimera: Turret Multi Laser, Hull HB

    nice anti armour.

    Heavy Support
    Leman Russ(177)
    -Hull Mounted Lascannon
    -Sponson Heavy Bolters
    -Pintle Heavy Stubbers

    tone down your leman russ, take out lascannon, and stubbers.

    :::::::TOTAL:::::::
    998



    Tactics it all depends on you.. I'll just tell you what i do, but i wont say it gurantees a win.. just my personal tactics..

    Strip everything, keep all infantry, chims get hb hull and mult laser turret

    I'm a fan of raw power.. lol i'd say take two leman russ battle tanks.
    DO not take sponsoons, you dont need them, when your firing your ord
    If your scared of anti tank, take lascannon hull instead.

    Tactics would keep everything together and moving.
    take smoke screens, move up and blast with mult,las,heavy bolters and the battle cannon

    if not just keep the heavy bolter.

    if you dont understand my list.. i'll write it up for you XD.



    hope this helps?

    About my points, your right...I was looking it over last night and I realised that I forgot to add the cost of my platoon HQ in there..proving that I am the absolute *best* at math ^_^

    Anyways, heres my new list:

    HQ(175)
    Command Squad
    -Junior Officer: Honorifica Imperialis, Storm Bolter.
    -Heavy Bolter Team
    -Lasgun
    -Melta Gun
    -Chimera: Multi Laser and Heavy Bolter

    TROOPS(676)

    1st Platoon
    -Command Squad
    --Junior Officer: Storm Bolter
    --Plasma Gun
    --Missile Launcher
    --Chimera: Multi Laser and Heavy Bolter
    -1st and 2nd Squads
    --Sarge with lasgun
    --Plasma Gun
    --Autocannon/Missile Launcher
    --Chimera: Multi Laser and Heavy Bolter
    Armored Fist
    -Sarge With Lasgun
    -Plasma Gun
    -Lascannon
    -Chimera: Multi Laser and Heavy Bolter
    HEAVY SUPPORT(145)
    Leman Russ
    -Hull Heavy Bolter

    TOTAL
    995


    Ok, unfortunately I don't have enough points to add smoke to any of my APCs.
    I took out the Power sword and plasma pistol and added a Storm Bolter to make my HQ more shooty. Also I took out all of the Vox Casters and have taken the Close Order Drill Doctrine. I am keeping the plasma in my infantry squads because I will be facing mainly marines and there AP and strength come in handy and have served me well thus far. Also the heavy weapons are Vital to defending key locations against power armored foes IMO.

    Thanks for all your advice so far, I hope to see more :lol:

    Let us know how your battle go. We all can use help, and Bat reps are an excellent way of sharing strategies that work and don't work.

    Ok, changed my list minorly. I got rid of the Medic, and added a Storm Bolter to my platoon HQ. As for sharing tactics, I'll go out and get those 3 Chimera's soon, paint em up and let you know how the battle goes.

    Well, the only thing I can see with that list is I can pack more marines in 1000points than you have guardsmen, personally I think you should consider dropping the Russ for 1000point games. I have never actually used IG mind you but I know most of the codex, so don't take my word as gold.

    Ya, I am a little worried about my lack of infantry. That Leman has been with me forever though...used it in a grand total of one game. However, in 1000 points I have 6 armored vehicles which is a bonus.
