For years I have wishfully looked at 40K figures online and now I have finally taken the step to start playing myself.
I'm building my very first Imperial Guard army right now and found the Librarium when I was searching for some helpful advice.
The forum is great, it's hard to find a forum like this one with such a friendly atmosphere and helpful members :-)
I'm looking forward to get to know you, discuss every kind of topic and have a good time.
Nice to meet you all!
Hey there Phyrexianian, so have you had any friendly games yet & do you have anyone else to game with? & how big *point wise* do you have so far or not that much yet? if you have any questions &/or queries about your army, you can post them in their respective forum or just other post & threads there, & theres also a modeling & painting section you might want to check out as well here.
Well anyways you will get a lot of helpful advice here so enjoy your stay & welcome to LO.
Yes I've had a few friendly games although I can count them with one hand. I have some good friends in my region that I have played against and will challenge again in the future. One of them has a huge Orc army, the other one started this year, too, and builds a Tyranid army. There are others as well who I haven't met yet.
As for my own army: The current point value is around 800-900. I have bought a Russ, 2 starter boxes and a command squad :-) The army list will be in the Army List section soon, I guess, I have submitted it and now it's waiting for approval. Can't wait to hear your thoughts about it!
Guess what which is quite funny i have ALL 3 of them armies, my Ork army is around 3000-3500pts but my Tyranid & Imperial Guard armies aren't that big... yet, for my Tyranids i have 2 Lictors, 2 Carnifexes, a squad of Gargoyles & 1 Battalion (starter) box & for my Imperial Guard i have a command squad & 1 Battalion (starter) box... so as you can see they arethat not that big yet.
I'd love to see those Liktors, they have always been a favourite figure of mine. What kind of color pattern do you use for your Tyranids?
Maybe you can tell me a few things - as an Orc player - about how to position the IG in a small game against the green horde? :-) You must have lots of experience! 3500 pts, wow, do you have any photos of your army?
Well my Tyranids are from Hive Fleet Leviathan (the purple & white ones), as for Imperial Guard v.s Orks i can tell you that pie plates hurt a LOT Orks with their low armour saves (Leman Russ *wink wink*) & try to keep the out of close combat hope that helps.
Unfortunately i don't even any pics of my army, although those aren't the only armies i have i also have Dark Eldar (2000-2500pts), Necrons (5000-6000pts), Black Templars (2000-2500pts), Chaos Space Marines (just over 1000pts), Witch Hunters (1500pts) & i got given a small force of Blood Angels lol
Not one pic? Than it's about time you get your camera At first I thought I misread the part about your Necron army. In what kind of matches do you deploy all of them? Apocalypse? Or are you a tournament player (or both)?
Yeah i should get my camera out lol, but yeah Necrons were the first army i started off with that's why they're so BIG & then the Orks were my second army, i got given the Chaos army from a friend, then i got the Black Templars, Witch Hunters & then i started going halves in Dark Eldar with my brother & then i got the Tyranids (because i like Hive Fleet Leviathan) & then the Imperial Guard (catachan), because of this book i read & lastly i got given the Blood Angels... sorry about the history lesson lol.
Back to the question though... i haven't played in any tournaments yet but i have played a few Apoc games with my brother & a few of our mates but i usually play friendly games lol
Ich have a quick question, maybe you can help me here: Right now I have 3 ACs in my army (in the IS). But there are 3 Heavy weapons left that I just don't know how to use.
My anti-tank capability is quite low right now but I don't want to waste a lot of points for lasers in a BS3 troop that is easy to destroy... at the same time I could need some more anti infantry weapons for playing against nids and orcs. What are your thoughts about this? :-)
before you make those models have a look at the articles on the IG - starting off and FAQ and stuff like that - there is a handy article on making your HWS interchangeable which is really handy - I already bulit mine and had to purchase a few more! Have a look for the article it will serve you well as it has done me
