For the most part your army list is really excellent. I like everything in fact except for the unusual amount of sentinels with lascannons. If you really want that many lascannons, then drop three of the sentinels and add a lascannon squad. The reason for this is that you can HIDE the lascannon squad behind other units of troops but you can't hide the sentinels and they will die quickly. Also, if you really like sentinels, they are much more cost effective with either autocannons or heavy flamers. Also, the armored crew compartment won't save you for very long, trust me, I've been playing IG for several years now.
Another good substitution is removing those sentinels for a Basilisk. It really is the best tank the Imperial Guard has to offer. AND, you'll have just enough points left over for a squad of Autocannons. Not to mention one Basilisk costs less than three sentinels these days.
So other than replacing the sentinels with heavy weapons squads (Heavy Bolters and Autocannons are the BEST) I think your list is really nice. Also, if you already have the models or can afford it, then try to put a heavy weapon in EVERY squad including the command squads. I find that missile launchers are the best in command squads personally.
Also, you didn't mention it so I thought I might add this bit, but with that many ground pounders in your army, the Sharpshooter doctrine works wonders. I've been using it for 6 weeks now and my kill ratio has gone way up.

WOW! For a new comer to IG you have large force. Your force covers all shooting and close combat needs, but for the most part i agree with Hourglass. He pretty much summed up what you could do to improve it. Go with autocannons, sharpshooters, heavy weapons teams and a basilisk.

Hi, Mr.Death, Ive noted some possible errors in and your points calculation and also included some positive suggestions for your army below.


"HQ 103pts.

Perhaps i am wrong but my total points regarding that squad comes to 114. Remember that to become a Medic or a Standard Bearer the Guardsman MUST be upgraded to a Veteran. Additonally the master-vox must be upgraded from a vox-caster meaning their points are added together to reach the final cost [the cost of the Master-Vox in on top of the vox-caster].

I also noted the 9 man Stormtrooper Squad is listed at 199, when I calculated 189 points.

Squad #1 in Platoon #2 @96pts. I calculated 88 points. (No frags?)

Also, i am not sure of the role you have planned for your Heavy Weapons Platoon but i would recommend eliminating the Platoon and slimply moving the 3 Lascannons into your HQ Command Platoon as an Anti-Tank Support Squad. This would save you 45 points and allow them to deploy with the HQ, and not as a Heavy Support choice, which is usually first on the table top.

Additonally, i cant see your Guardsmen using their frag grenades at all unless you plan to assault with them all game. Either way, if they charge at the opponent they wont get to shoot their heavy weapons and if they stand still they wont need frag greandes. If you remove the frag greandes you have 50 extra points which when combined with the no longer needed Support Platoon Command Squad gives you 100 more points. Perhaps you can give your squads a Sharp Shooter Doctrine and reroll 1/3 of your missed hit rolls.

Also, since basiaclly all your squads have a vox-caster, a Heroic Senior Officer is definitely worth the extra 15 points as this will let you use his leadership of 9 for all the vox-caster squads rather than the Senior Officers 8.

I hope this helped :)
