Here's what I used in the battle. It is a test-army. And I will never use ut again. The infantry platoons were just fodder, they didnt stand a chance...
Please comment the list. Command Platoon
Colonel,Power Fist,Bolter, Carapace Armour
Veteran Sergeant, CC Weapon,Laspistol, Carapace Armour
I dont have much experience with IG so i really dont know what to say , but to me it looks okay. Yes it was a terrible terrible loss, but il be back!And now i got my new stuff :twisted: talos, more incubi , grots and more wyches. Im gonna set up a new army during the next few days. If you wanna test your IGs against me just drop by one day :twisted:
I must say that u have a pretty bad list....not wanting to be mean or anything.
First off, for the HQ:
Ditch Nork, your commander is human he doesn't worth any more than the guards do....Unless your "assualty" HQ really works for u, I think it's way too pricey(more like super pricey). Could spend on more tanks or troops....cuz if most of the opponents reach your line you'll be dead anyways....u wanna get to shoot them as much as you can. For me, an assualt HQ would be colonel with power fist, comissar with powerfist. U shoot the target enemy unit first, then use these guys to assualt with a squad of guard or two to back up.
Take out the motar squads.....they don't do stank against marines.
Oh, and if he's troop heavy, go for missile for ur AT squad...much cheaper and get autocannons to take out transport.
Never ever get granade launcher when u fight against marines, they can't penetrate the armour. And Stormtroopers should not be moving much anyways.....they should be ahead of your army to slow down the enemy, and shoot them out. So get the plasma guns.. and ditch the grenades, you're not going to assualt them.....plus if the enemy tanks is that near, they'll be moving and you have to roll 6 to hit. If you wanna be an attacker then give them flamers.....a lot more worthit.
Don't waste you BS4 with flamers, besides these guys don't make good assualt units due to lack of armour and everything else....give them deathworld vet. buy a bunch of plasmas and hide them in woods(4+ inv save).
Why are u getting a bunch of vet sergent??? And give them ccw??? Ditch all the vet sergent, including the ones in elites. If u want an assualt squad, give one of your command section with powerfist and flamers. The other command section should be holding the line with his LD. If u want to assualt then get chimeras and give to your HQ or get a amourfist squad.
And give all your troops heavy/special weapons...well, if u gonna use them as cannon folders then give heavy, if u wanna keep them moving then give special to the units.
split up the units for your setinels so when one get hit the other won't. Take out all the upgrades, their armour are really bad, u don't wanna waste the points on them. maybe keep the x-tra armour and get a smoke launcher....but u should keep them in cover anyways....
If you upgrades a lot of your guys because u don't have enough models, then play on a lower scales.....guards fight in numbers not in upgrades.
I can't remember all the units he used. But he used a Land Raider Crusader, Vindicator, Scouts v/Sniper rifles (I think he used 9 snipers), Can't remember how many marines but he used five terminators and a couple of heavy weapon teams.
Maybe Master Belail can post his army list here?
The vindicator killed a lot of guardsmen, and so did the crusader.
I also play IG. All mine are Deathworld Vets.+1 WS.
Try adding a Griffin or Basalisk. These are ordanance type barrage weapons and if the enemy suffers even one wound they have to test aganist pinning, and a unit that is pinned is a target.
