I'm doing this from memory, so some things might be off - mostly I'm looking for general comments at this is my first IG army list.

The ideas behind this list are:
1) almost every unit has light infantry, so they will get to deploy last and hopefully in ideal positions
2) I spread out the hvy/special weaps to minimize the impact on the armies effectiveness when I take casualties
3) the command platoon has all assault weapons so they can shoot and move - this is a benefit since they are the only unit w/out infiltrate, and I'm planning on running them behind lines to provide leadership support where needed
4) the Infantry Command squad originally had 3 plasmaguns and a sarge w/ a plasma pistol (because I really like the model and happen to have a lot of them!) but I eventually decided that concentrated too much firepower and points in one unit. I would really LIKE to use the cool plasma pistol models - but it just seems like a bad idea for a sarge to use a 5pt probably one shot weapon that could kill him! Of course, that's what the medic is for.
5) I will try to use the remnants squad as a speed bump - to tie up the enemy in close combat - which means I'll have to keep my other squads well back, I gues..

ANY comments welcome as this is my first foray into IG. I also have GOBS of rough riders I'm trying to convert too, so thoughts on using them in an 800 or 1200 pt list are also welcome! :)

Thanks!
