Remember, only Shot guns, las guns, las/auto pistols and ccws outside of gaunt and a single commissar whom gets a plasma pistol when it comes to sgnts and officers

no lascannons

lots of sniper rifles
Space Marines may be lauded as the ultimate warriors, but it takes a real man to walk with carapace armor and a hell guninto battle, then do their job for them without any genetic hoo-ha

Step one for playing Tanith: Ignore the doctrines in the guard codex. 12 point guardsmen are going to die, horribly, against anyone with half a brain. My suggestions for doctrines.

Light Infantry
and two doctrines of your choice

Taking Hardened Fighters and Sharpshooters as well will run your unit cost up so high that a normal guard army will outnumber you 2:1.
When you wish upon a star, your wish may come true. Unless that star is a meteorite hurtling towards the earth. In that case you're just screwed; unless you wished for death by meteorite.

the only compulsory one of their doctrines is sharpshooters, and so you dont have to spend that much

It's free. there are no special rules for them, you have to represent them with doctrines, its a bugger but, meah

i was speaking to the guys in GW the other day asking which list you are meant to use. They told me that if you are playing in-store or at a tournament you should use the doctrine, but if you're doing a campaign with friends at a local club or something similar you can use the chapter approved army list, as its awesome:P
