Default Suggestions on what to get next.

OK, I am just now starting an Imperial Guard Army and I just bought a Platoon box, a Sentinel and an Ogryn (1) off Ebay for $50. (still need the codex though) I would like a few suggestions on what to buy next. I was thinking maybe a Chimera and some Storm Troopers and/or more Ogryns (depending on who I am playing) for a strike force backed up by the Sentinel. I would obviously need to get some Heavy Weapon Squads and a Leman Russ. Is what I have planned a good idea or not? Thanks for the help!

Fall In Soldier.

Read this

Nice little pick up.

Add on to the Ogryns for sure, they are great psychological units and are great on the table.

read through the topic linked above and if you still have any questions ask away.

I read through a little before I posted and finished afterwards. So I'm going to get some more Ogryns ( in Chimera) a Leman Russ and some heavy weapon squads. What would be the best heavy weapon squad against Tau though(My friend uses tau and SM mostly)? I was thinking some auto-cannons and heavy bolters would be good.

Autocannons are good against fire warriors (with AP4) and they're also good against skimmers.

Mortars are good as well, as most of the time Tau have trouble against indirect fire weapons.

(Oh yeah...I hoped the small how-to-start-guard thing helped you!)

if you want heavy weapons and you're going to get a russ you might aswell go for the battleforce. you're going to need more infantry anyways, and you end up getting them for about a 5.

Yes, Krezent it did help! I figured I mind as well get the battleforce, although I'm going to have to save for it. (gas and food come first!) ;D
