Default New Player From The Tau Realm

Hey Guys, I've thought seriously of doing Imperial Guard and even done a list, and I would love some advice. For I wanted to do an army with a good about of templates, indirect fire, and good solid numbers that can be somewhat like the British Army. I figured IG was perfect, but any advice or ideas for me would be appreciated.

Also, I made a list with the link below, and I think it might be cheesy. *shrug* I don't know, so I figured you guys tell me what I should be going for. I want lots of Infantry, lots of templates. I'll let you guys do the thinking!

Cheers,
Komrade Khaki

Edited: Crap, its in the IG List section, look for the one that said Noob and 2000pts so yeah . . . Ill place it here in a bit.

if you want alot of templates and indirect fire catachans are famous for their flamers, and mortarsare devastating in their armies. if you want british you could use preatorians for the colonial british soldiers. dont know how you could make modern english army. i suppose you could use old cadians with elysian lasguns(since the SA80 has the bullpup clip feed), but that would be obscenely expensive. as to your list: its a link to a site about HTML.

I was thinking just generic Cadians with a British Footbal jersy style to them. Midnight Blue under coat, White Armour and Red Decals, but wanted to play them mostly as a Light Role-styled army.

This is what you will need unless if you like losing horribly all of the time, guard infantry always get slaughtered and have bad guns so yeah lots of them is compulsory nowadays!

And if you take alot of infantry you have to do alot of painting as-well. :'(
