thats alot of melta guns. you planning on getting up close and personal? you might want to bunch all the missile launchers into one platoon and use drop troops to deepstrike the rest. very good list, only complaints are the upgrades to the SO. he has the same LD as platoon commanders, so theres no need to keep him alive that long. carapace bionics and Medallion crimson are too expensive in my opinion.

I've seen it before in gws sample lists,only thing you added was the 4 commissars and 3 Psykers.Why didn't you make your own,it would have your own personal tastes and diversity.

Typing in CAPS, even in the subject only, is not appreciated.


I don't like this army, it's as bland as unsalted cardboard. You could have at least tried to put a little variation in...

The one main problem i see is alot close support but very little ranged weaponry and if your opponent has alot of shots they will be slaughtered, If you come up against an army that has better close combat than your army list (which is basically every other army) they will rip you a new one. Basically you really don't want to get close with guard the only army that i can think of that dose not have any good assault troops is Tau and they have big guns to make up for it! Never assault with guard get Ogryns to do it for you.

anothe rproblem is the lack of medics. as the others said, diversification is good thing. maybe you should kit out the platoon squads more...
