Well, me being a uber newb at 40K I need a whole lot of help with the rules. I've read the -Old- rulebook twice but am still concerned about a few things, because the rules don't actually cover everything, I'm sure you all know that alreay though.

1) When a heavy weapon fires you roll to hit, but do you have to roll to wound?

2) Does one unit of have to be painted the same color as the rest?

3) How much does cameloine cost for the imperial guard, cuz I don't see it in the codex at all.

4) Does a whole troop need a command squad and then a main one with a senior officer for the elites, troops, and heavy support?

5) If a lascannon equipted is equipted to a imperial guard infantry and fired, can other units in the unit fire with their lasguns?

More questions to come very soon :p.

there are no rules in the bgb about wysiwyg, nor about painting anything
5) If a lascannon equipted is equipted to a imperial guard infantry and fired, can other units in the unit fire with their lasguns?
p 18, first paragraph, also p 22.

Yes, roll to wound as normal using the weapons Str value

2) Does one unit of have to be painted the same color as the rest?
No, units can be painted however you wish

3) How much does cameloine cost for the imperial guard, cuz I don't see it in the codex at all.
Its in the Codex. Please dont ask for point costs. Not only is it against Copyright, but its also against forum rules

4) Does a whole troop need a command squad and then a main one with a senior officer for the elites, troops, and heavy support?
Dont understand the question completely.
If its relating to IG command squads, then each platoon needs a command squad of its own, plus you need the command platoon as your HQ


5) If a lascannon equipted is equipted to a imperial guard infantry and fired, can other units in the unit fire with their lasguns?
Yes, other men in the unit can fire their lasguns but they have to fire at the same unit the lascannon fired at


Hope that helps

1) Yep, roll to hit then roll to wound. (Unless it has a special rule like rending)

2) Do you mean does one unit of eg. guardsman have to be painted the same colour as the rest of you guardsman??? There is no rule saying what colour you have to paint your squads, but they do look better painted in the same sort of "theme". That is, a similar set of coulours used on everything.

3) & 4) Do you have the Imperial Guard Codex?? If you can't find it in there, go to the Imperial Guard Forum and post there.

5) Yes, if your lascannon fired then the rest can use their lasguns.

Thanks that covers everything. Sorry about the copyright thingy, I forgot :(.
It's just I don't own the rulebook or codex, I can't really afford that much at a time at my age...

Thanks a lot guys.

Welcom to the forums btw. And as much as we all wish we could just send one another the rules, we can't. Sorry mate. (thus the reason I only give page refs for general posts like these).

You are probably looking in the wrong place in the codex. Cameleoline is on p.57 under Special Equipment. It is part of the Regimental Doctrines part of the codex. These are things you can do to customize your IG army. I'm guessing that you were looking in the unit descriptions or the Armory.

PS - You might be able to save a few dollars by buying a used rulebook on Ebay. Also, look for the condensed rulebook that comes with the Battle of Maccrage box set (also on Ebay), it doesn't have all the pictures and background info that the hardcover book has, but it is cheaper and has what you need to get started. You'll also need an Imperial Guard codex. If you buy one used make sure it is the latest version (black cover). Good luck and welcome!
