Hmmm... very infantry reliant... That may present a problem when dealing with low-model high-points armies, like Space Marines. I looks great, though... I really like it, especially the plasma.

I must remind you though, As far as I remember, you must take a senior officer in your command HQ, as a Lt. can't lead a company.

i would have the lascannons in dedicated squads.also if you are going to min/ max like that, use vetrans so you can get your moneys worth of the equipment. also, i say this to everyonebut, medics are a big help.

yep, 2 or 3 lascannon squads and dedicated anti-infantry too. the lascannons are stopping your squads moving. guard are mostly STASTTD (Sit There And Shoot Them To Death) but they need some mobility in their infantry. personalyl i think rough riders are a bit useless so i think they should dissapear and Sentinels instead.

It is far to static for my taste, but then some prefer the shooting line approach. It is a valid method of playing IG.

I like less troops with more doctrine, skills. I'm also into DS, so I take meltas rather than plasma guns. The lack of tanks is also of concern, since you have nothing to stop template weapons like whirlwinds, hammerheads, or such.

It would be a contest of dice playing against this army. The key, I think, is to force you to start moving on one flank to get away from my massed attack. This would cause those nearest units to be unable to employ the heavy weapons and thus be vulnerable to things like tank shock, and FoF.

You have twelve lascannons, and twelve plasma guns! Do you need that many?
