746pts

95 models on the tabletop in a 750pt battle is pretty good, it think.
i wanted an infantry "blob", with enough models to "soak up" shots, and few heavy weapons.
what do you guys think...?

Here's a better one:

4 Guardsmen - Missile Launcher

10 Guardsmen - Grenade Launcher, Missile Launcher
~83pts

50 Conscripts -

That's 110 Guardsmen, 7 Missile Launchers and 5 Grenade Launchers. Exchange the Missile Launchers for Heavy Bolters if you wish...

I love conscripts! so what i do is have a 50 man conscript platoon for every infantry platoon i have, this makes all my armies very infantry blob style. My favorite is and HQ squad 2 Infantry platoons with 2 squads each and 100 conscripts 2 leman russes and a demolisher. The rest of the points go to heavy weapons and wargear. Its basically a hoard of infantry with three main tanks out and about kicking a**.

nah you have to take off the tanks for that, but 50 conscripts are only 200 points so you can get plenty in a 750 game, if you want infantry blob armies you need conscripts, but be sure to have a commissar near them, they have Ld5 so a its easy to have 30 guys leg it off the field.

In 750pts 50 is about your limit, since you need Infantry Platoons as well.

Oh, and Iron Discipline will sort out most morale problems. Best 5pts you can spend.

you can get like 80 if you dont take any upgrades for your command squads or too many heavy weapons.

Mmm...

=680pts

That leaves you 70pts for weaponry. Let's give a Missile Launcher to each infantry squad - 60pts - and a single Meltagun to the HQ.

Weak, in my opinion, but doable if your opponant doesn't have more then a single tank.
