Default My soon to be completed 1500 pt IG army

Thought I'd post the army list to see what everyone thought:

HQ
HSO w/bolt pistol, P fist, honorifica
4 guards w/ master vox and 2 flamers
Mortar squad w/3 mortars
Anti armor squad w/3 lascannon

Heavy

3x LR w/Battle cannon, lascannon, smoke, x armor, pintel storm bolter

Fast

2x Sentinel w/autocannon
Hellhound

Troops

JO w/power weapon, bolt pistol
4 guards w/1 flamer, 1 grenade launcher, 1 vox
3x squad of 10 w/V sgt w/CCW + pistol, 1 w/grenade launcher,



Doctrines:
Cameoline
Sharpshooter
Iron Dicipline
Harden Fighters


The idea is to move the infantry forward under cover of the LR tanks while the support squads and sentinels secure flanks. Hellhound is for kicks

What do you think?

I'm not an IG Expert but it seems you only got one Troop choice. You need a second troop choice (e.g. a second Platoon or an Armored Fist Squad) to fill the two compulsory slots.

AFAIK An Imperial Guard Platoon that counts as one Troop Choice consists of a Command Squad and from 2 to 5 Infantry Squads.

get rid of the honourifica on your HSO, its pointless. honourificas give him the profile of an HSO, he already is an HSO.

disband the anti-tank squad, hand out the lascannons to your guard squads.

what are your vox casters doing? you have a vox in you JO squad and a master in your command squad, but none of your infantry squads. either get rid of all the voxes or get rid of the one in the Jo squad, get rid of all the Veteran sargeants, and give all infatry squads vox casters.(i do this)

give your veteran sargeants lasguns instead of laspistol and CCw, works better.

get rid of the stormbolter on your leman russ. if you fire your battlecannon you can fire it, if you fire your lascannon it will be at a tank, wasting the stormbolter. for those ten points your better off getting Hbolter sponsons. the only time you should take pintle weapons is if you have hull Hbolter and sponson Hbolters.

you wrote down a load of doctrines at the bottom but never said which squads have those doctrines. are they jsut for fluff?

and lastly, take your two sentinels as two one-man squads. that way they can aim at different things and the enemy has to fire two squads at them if they want to whipe them out.

P.S. oh yeah and you need the second troop choice

I would feel naked to go to war with so little troops. More infantry is needed.

I don't want heavy weapons bogging down my infantry movement. The sentinels are in two squads of 1 each. I put the H bolter on tank in case I get 2 weapons destroyed results, but yes I'll delete them. I want to manuver, not sit like so many IG.

All the infantry have the doctrines.

I thought the vox had to be with the leader not the squad. I'll put them in squad if i need them. I want the HSO leadership on the squads.

Also point taken on honorifica.
