    [1500] Cadian 8th - revised; friendly and balanced

    Greetings. I revised my list to include a wider variety of heavy/special weaponry. I know loading all of my troops with plasma and lascannons may be pretty powerful and there's a place for that kind of list, I'm sure. However, since I'm painting IG for the first time, I'd prefer a more varied list to keep my interest with all the painting and modelling ahead of me.

    Comments and suggestions most welcome.

    Looks like a pretty solid list to me. You might be a little light in your anti tank capabilities, but you mentioned you wanted variety in your weapons so this is understandable. You might want to consider missile launchers in your second infantry platoon however as they aren't too bad at performing both anti tank and anti infantry duty. Only reason I say that is your 4 heavy bolters in that platoon may not have very much left to shoot at considering you have 3 pie plates as well as 2 inferno cannons that should mean infantry will be dropping before you like nothing else.
    I feel pity for the swarm player who takes you on!
    Nice list.
    What Guardsmen dont want to hear...
    "Ok boys, time to fix bayonets!"

    Nice list.

    I appreciate the suggestion. There's definitely going to be a little tinkering to this list, but I have plenty of time in which to do it. Eventually I want to be able to field any situation, but for a first list, i'm quite happy with it. Gives me a variety of things to paint yet would still do well in a game.
