Default Re: I need some help picking an Army

Ah then the Imperial Guards are ther best choice then.

The Imperial Guard are often first, last and often the only defence against the enemies of Mannkind. So their basic strategy is sit and shoot. Their savings are +5 so you need to stay in cover ALWAYS.

The Infantry Squad which is the backbone of the Imperial Guard cost only like 60 points (base points) and you can add special weapons and heavy weapons to add to their firepower. Quanity has its own quality. 20 lasguns have a chance to take down a terminator or 2. Mass firepower is the word here. Also deploymeny. 1 Infantry platoon is made up of a command squad and 2-5 Infantry Squad. Also, I Infantry platoon takes only one troop cost. So, if you manage to roll for troops. A succesful roll will get you 25 models at least plues their special weapons and heavy weapons. Also, the Basilisks are one of the best artillery guns of all the army along with the Leman Russes the main battle tank of the Imperial Guard.

The Imperial Guard has the most flexible fluff. There's a million worlds in the Imperium. Just make up a regiment, put in some doctrines to suit the fluff and you got yourself a personalized army.

There's many heroes within the Imperial Guard. Just give him the right wargear but not too much, and you got yourself a flavorful leader.

Though united in their cause to bring glory to the Golden Throne of Terra, regiments are still loyal to their worlds and regimantals rivalries are not rare.

Hope this helps
