Default How many guardsmen?

Ok. Quick question. How many guardsmen is it usual to have in a 1500p/2000p army.
I use a LR battletank and demolisher plus 3xlasc. and 3xautoc. in every list I use.
What would be a good number?

as many as you can fit into your carrier bag, but thats just me. what i try to do when making new lists is create an STC squad. bascily get an infantry squad, give them any upgarde and doctrines you want, add any heavy or special weapons and the use that to create two platoons. then see how much you have left and decided whethere you prefer some upgrades to you command squads or if you want more infantry. if you feel you want more infantry get some more squads. and then when your close to your points limit you can modifiy them a bit. how many men you take depends on what your going to do, who you are doing it against and how your going to do. it would help if you gave me a list of doctrines your using and what opponents you fight most.
go to the above to help me on a browser game
