Default 500 pt army

am planning on building 500 point armies for all the races of 40K, so I was wondering what units to include in my IG one.

thanx

Or a Hellhound at the very least. What you probably don't want at such a low point value is a Basilisk, since you are unlikely to be able to cover it adequately.

In fact, as an aside, why are you building lists at 500 points? Guard really don't get good til about 1000 anyway.

Honestly unless this is going to be combat patrol 500pts of guard is pointless, also kinda hard to fit in a list. Unless you want a catachan list this is gonna be hard to make effectivly...

he's making a 500 point army list for every race. heres a sample one
Command Platoon
SO

Infantry Platoon
JO-MIssile Launcher
Squad One-Missile Launcher-Veteran Sargeant
Squad Two-Missile Launcher-Veteran Sargeant

Armoured Fist Squad-Missile Launcher-Veteran Sargeant
Chimera-Multi Laser-Hull Heavy Bolter-Pintle Mounted Heavy Stubber

Sentinel-Auto Cannon
thats a combat patrol type army, if you want something heavyier you can take of the sentinel,heavy stubber and Missile launcher and get a hell hound but then you wont have much anti tank. So if you think your getting some heavy tanks you might want to take off the sentinel and replace the missile launchers with las-cannons.

500 points... ouch thats hard. heres one almost straight out of the box...

command squad:
S.O. w bionics, bolt pist, ccw, surveyor
veteran medic
veteran standard bearer w bolt pist, ccw
guard w meltagun
guard w voxcaster

infantry platoon:
command: JO w las/ccw, surveyor, 1 vox/laspist/ccw, 3 w laspist/ccw
squad: 10 guys, 1 has vox, 1 has grenlaunch, sarge has laspist/ccw
squad: 10 guys, 1 has vox, 1 has grenlaunch, sarge has laspist/ccw

armored fist:
squad:10 guys, 1 has vox, 1 has flamer, 1 has vox, sarge has laspist/ccw
chimera has multilaser in turret and heavy bolter in hull (or hv flamer if you prefer - cost the same)

sentinel w multilaser


and thats it... 500 points... trouble with that amount is you are barely filling your troop selection requirements and have no points for a leman russ, or a heavy weapon squad, both of which are guard staples... but i guess all the other 500 point armies wont get all their cool toys either....

if you want to be cheap... take the regimental doctrines 'drop troops' and 'close order drill' cuz they both give your squads a bonus ability at no points cost.
