Default 2000 Pure Infantry

I have been doing IG for a decent time a few years but I got a crazy idea one day to do a pure infantry no vehicle army. When i suggested this to some other vet players they just laughed (ominous sign) and agreed to let me borrow some models not having enough to pull it off myself. Keep in mind this is a new concept for me so I'm trying to keep it simple and not take doctrines, and NO VEHICLES. Just pure 100% IG troopers and ALOT of heavy weapons.

They are planning on pitting my army against an Eldar and a Chaos Space Marine Iron Warriors force in a few 1vs1 matches to see how it would turn out. I think with the number of Heavy Bolters, Mortars, and Grenade Launchers that i will rip through the Eldar but I'm not sure about the Iron Warriors so i took some missile launchers, autocannons, and ratlings (love the little boogers) for some anti-heavy infantry firepower. The Conscripts with flamers are just for meat shields to slow the enemy a turn or 2 at most. They will be deployed far enough ahead they cant follow up and charge into my Troops before i get at least one more turn of fire. Mostly I hope I can through enough firepower out to turn them into swiss cheese and even if they kill a whole squad of troops or heavy weapons and it wont matter.

indeed you are right i forgot about that i only se one squad anyways so it never mattered before. I managed to correct it by replacing 2 of the Ratlings squads with a squad of Veterans and 4 Ogryns for only 1 more point.

Remember, Senior officers are Independant characters, they can be picked out in close combat, so, a power sword is probably a better choice then the power fist.

Also, the Master Vox cannot be a veteran...

Only Medic and Standard bearer-or any customised veteran...

YAY! Template weapons! There is no chance in hell I would not hit.
Good list. But damn, that would be a lot of work to model/paint etc. And pricy.

Also, you cannot take 10 conscripts.

The minimum platoon size for conscripts is 20.

Conscripts act as a big horde-remember?

i dont use conscripts often i missed the 2-5 squads of 10 on that just combine the two squads no problem there, and if the only other problem was the master-vox thats another easy fix take off the vet upgrade for him. I want to keep the power fist cause although he will be a target there will also be about 24 other targets such as lascannons that will pose more immediate threats. I'm still sad i cant have 3 squads of Ratlings but I made up for it with Mortars, Grenade Launchers galore with 12 of each and 3 missile launchers plus 6 heavy bolters and 6 Autocannons i have little to fear from infantry then with the 6 lascannons and the missile launchers vehicles will die. To protect from close chargers and assualt units i have 2 squads of Conscripts with flamers and 4 Ogryns to form a good solid meat shield of wounds. As for modeling and pricy this is a temporary thing lasting for maybe a week or 2, im borrowing IG troops from others in my area cause they are curious about how it will turn out as well.

K I think it's a really cool idea in taking an all infantry force, this is something I never dared to try mainly because of all the men you have to paint :P. Although I might try it soon in the form of a all infantry drop troopers force ;D.

I only see 1 major prob in your list....where are all the junior officers for the infantry and heavy weapon platoons? You need to take a command section for each infantry and heavy weapon platoon. Hope it's only a slight oversight I made, because this mistake will probably effect your list a bit.

Greetz,
Alexander
