Default Vostroyans good at plain boards

I was wondering Are vostroyans any good at fighting on a plainboard or are the just good in city fighting? Because if not i might buy a city fight board.

Vostroyans in City Fight... if you're talking about the "Official" doctrines, which includes Equipment: Carapace Armour, then I would say that other Imperial Guard lists could be FAR more suited to City Fight than Vostroyans.

Cover Saves in the urban environment make Carapace Armour a huge waste of points compared to, say, Cameleoline... while the Carapace Armour of the Vostroyan Firstborn increases their survivability in more open battlefields.

Vostroyans are a joke in City Fight, my guess is GW ignored any and all urban warfare doctrine and just made cool looking mini-marines. On plain boards on the other hand, vossies rock! This is the only place where the cost of their carapace is justified. Their sharpshooters aided heavy weapon platoons will own the battlfield with unrestricted line of sight, and special weapons teams can be freely dropped around without worrying of deepstrikeing them into a building. Their hardened fighters is pretty much wasted, since its one of the few doctrines that work great in city-fight. Personally i'd skip that doctrine, or restrict it to command squads to use as speed bumps.

Well, theres no real reason that you have to take the doctrines listed, if you like the models.
