Very non mobile. I am not a big fan of antitank in normal squads as you waste nine lasgun shots if you shoot at a tank.

I save the mass Lasgun fire for the Conscripts, who are cheaper than Guardsmen and make up for the lack of Lasguns. Besides, the Heavy Bolter gives out 3 shots compared to 2 Lasguns and the Autocannon shoots the same as 2 Lasguns but better.

2 sentinels, you better wnat these to die quickly because they will... if you take a tons of them, (if i take one i always take at least 6) enemys can't really contend with that amount of light armour

There is only one Lascannon, and the Missile Launcher can also double as anti-infantry blast when using frag. I'll replace one Missile Launcher with a Heavy Bolter. Could someone please make corrections where needed, as I am just starting Imperial Guard?

You can only have a single Medic in the Command Squad.

i would advise you to either take the stormies or the vets, not both. Andromidius, you beat me to the medic problem. also the vox in the command hq, not doing much unless its the master vox, and still not worth the points. you are missing out on all the great SW you can have.

Could I please have a list on what to put in and what to take out? I'll take out the second Medic and the Storm Troopers and give the Vets three melta-guns.

[i]Edit: Actually, I'll redo the list.
