    2000 Points Massed Infantry

    I was looking at the Imperial Guard codex last night and thought itd be pretty wild to make an army with as many guardsmen as possible. I doubt it'll win against highly mobile armies due to the total lack of mobility on my part, but see the face of my opponent as I put down over 200 guardsmen would make it all worth it. If you have any opinions on how it'd fare, it'd be nice to hear them.

    Anyways, here's my attempt at a massed infantry list.

    personally id try and get in some special weapons. plasma only in the lascannon squads is probably not the best way to go the biggest weapon id stick plasma with is an autocannon then you dont waste the plasma shots. with so many men it is a shame not to have conscripts or even a light inf platoon to swamp the enemy! id go for more weapon variation personally. missiles are great in quantity and autocannons can help where the lascannon is a little to strong ie. transport killing. id love to see the army on the field though. it does need a banner more for the look of it though!

    This could be a nasty army. Actually, it is one of the nastiest guard armies I have ever seen. What could beat it?

    Anything with a decent amount of ordanance weapons could because they all have close order drill therefore mass casaualties if you get the hit.... But other then that tis' a pretty good army....

    Although, I would like to add that I would not like to play it. Sitting and shooting for six turns with no mobility sounds pretty boring to me. But it really does look lethal.

    Cut the head off the worm. i.e. use indirect fire, assassins, whatever to get at the command squads. Then pile on the shooting to make them run.

    I disagree, only those who don't think would deploy in COD fashion against an enemy with an ample supply of templates.
