Have been looking to expand my Std Guard army Into an all Infantry army for a while now, recently had a go at Introducing Schaeffer and his nutters but found them a bit too hit and miss for my liking and have decided to go down the LI route with added drop troops for mobility/confusion purposes.
If anybody can give me any advice on succesfull Light Infantry armies then elightenment will be much appreciated.
Don't really think the guard do efficent cheese as such but hoping the list below with a few tweaks along the way could do the trick :w00t:

2 units with meltaguns would be better, anti tank is needed. also you do not want to kill your own men

great listt, you need a little maneouvering of your special weapons, maybe drop the voxes in your vet squads and make sure to drop pod melta vets, good luck

Thanks for the reply
Made a few changes here and there, started by dropping Iron discipline for close order drill this should help my drop troopers and HW teams adding +1 on their LD and INT probably more usefull than ID In the list.
Also made a boo-boo with the HW teams and costs, so I can now add In another demo charge for more random carnage.
Don't really want my command squad In the open/combat at any point so I've left them bare, from experience If the HQ ever becomes a valid target they WILL get shot!
I've gone for missiles over LC's because of their multi-role purpose, as for AP theres plenty of that about:yes:
I think adding overpriced special weapons to the Demo squads Is too risky, there going to be going within 6 Inches hopefully so the risk Is probably too great for more point wastage.

Any more comments/advice?
Thanks In Advance,

You can not have special weapons squads within your infantry platoons, special weapons squads form part of a command platoon, in troop choices you only get command squads, not platoons

Ehhh? :wacko:
I thought you could attach support sqauds like demo squads, sentinal sqaudrons etc to all command squads whether there your HQ command squads or your plattoon command squad, Is this not the case then?

No mate, re read the codex and be carefull about the distinction between platoon and squad,

HQ- Command platoon which comprises command squad plus other attchments as you suggest

Troops - Infantry platoon which comprises command squad plus infantry squads
