Also, as for your choice of Doctrines:

Sharpshooters is a waste of points. Trust me, I've been a SIGAFH player from the beginning, and so I know what works well and what doesn't when it comes to blowing the hell out of people... and Sharpshooters ain't it. Giving it to anyone other than a Heavy Weapon Team armed with 3 Lascannons (A guy called Jenkins on EO did the math for this) is a waste of points.

Carapace is the same. While less men die, they cost more, so you have fewer men to begin with... and they're only really useful against AP 5 weapons. AP 6 or less, and you still lose the same amount of VPs per model killed. Higher, and you lose more VPs per model.

Xenohunters is fine, if you're willing to model severed heads onto every single model. Otherwise, you can't legally use it.

Finally, the reason I hate Guard Newbies is I've seen so many of the stuck-up scumbags plonk down a bunch of Plastic Cadians, so up themselves that they refuse to accept that I, a Veteran before they'd even seen a Lasgun, may know more about their army than they do, and provide a variety of ways to tell me to piss off... then get slaughtered, often by me.

Doctrines were the Guard's "shiny", and for this I will kill GW. Guard should never be collected on "shiny" units, rules or whatever. Guard armies are hard work, and if you can't be bothered to learn how to play the damn army, like most Doctrine-drawn whiteshields, then I have no sympathy for you.

If, however, you are willing to learn how a real Guard army works, then I am willing to help.
