    1500 Point IG Friendly needs a shave and advice

    I've bought no IG so far, so this is a great time for me to design my next army. I was thinking I'd buy 3x Cadian Battleforce, but I could change that plan.

    Anyways, this list is basically gunline so I'm concerned about missions like recon. I had the Doctrine slots so I took Drop Troops for the potential of dropping a squad or two into scoring zones. Otherwise it's pretty much stand your ground and shoot.

    Doctrines
    Everyone has Drop Troops (except the tanks) since it is free.
    Sharpshooters for the extra 8.5% hits.
    Close Order Drill
    Iron Discipline
    -Empty Slot-
    Command Platoon
    Command Squad [81]
    1 Junior Officer: CCW; Laspistol; Iron Discipline; Honorifica Imperialis
    3 Guardsmen Lasgun (x3),
    1 Standard Bearer
    Anti-Tank Squad [120]
    Sharpshooters; Lascannon (x3) (Sharpshooters buys me 8.5% more hits)
    2x Standard Las/Plas Gunline Infantry Platoons [287] points each
    Command Squad
    1 Junior Officer Iron Discipline; CCW; Laspistol
    4 Guardsmen Meltagun x4
    2x Infantry Squad: Close Order Drill
    Plasma Gun
    Lascannon
    Veteran Sergeant CCW; Laspistol
    1x Sharpshooter Platoon [275] points
    Command Squad: Drop Troops; Sharpshooters
    1 Junior Officer; Iron Discipline; CCW; Laspistol
    4 Guardsmen; Grenade Launcher (x4)
    2x Infantry Squad Close Order Drill; Sharpshooters;
    Grenade Launcher
    Heavy Bolter
    Veteran Sergeant w/ Lasgun
    3x Leman Russ Battle Tank [165] Points each
    Battlecannon; Hull Lascannon; Sponson Heavy Bolter
    Total Roster Cost: 1545
    86 Infantry
    7 Lascannons
    2 HBs
    4 Plasma
    6 Grenade Launchers (Rerolling 1s)
    8 Meltas in Suicide command squads
    3 Leman Russ (3x 14 armor hulls)
    3 pie plates
    3 Lascannons
    6 HBs
    Weird, I thought I'd have more models, I guess I went a little too Lascannony?

    No, your Lascannons are fine!

    I would mode the Hull Lascannons on your Russes to be HBs and that will save 30pts right there. Then drop Sharpshooters from the platoon. IMO the only place for Sharphooters in a HW squad (like your Lascannon Squad )

    I also might drop one Russ for a Bassie, but I that is me.

    Overall nice list!

    Hmm If I save 30 on taking out sharpshooters and maybe another 12 demoting the Sergeants and 30 downgrading the Lemans' to bolters... then Id definitely be under.

    If I dropped a tank I could get another lascannon squad and maybe another infantry squad.

    I'm more used to assault-cannoning and breaking IG than trying to win with them. Do I need something else to help with missions?

    You win the missions if the other player is all dead anyway, but your Russes can be sroring units. If there is any squad that I like for grabbing a quarter is a full Grenadier squad with two Plasma Guns in a Chimera.
