Default imperial guard weaknesses

no, im not an infiltrator...i play guard and was just wondering(a couple of seconds ago) what should i look out for in other armies and what should i strongly consider taking in my army list.

P.S and do any of you guys think the vanquisher is cheesy?

I think a single Vanquisher is fine, but a couple BS4 slick-loading Vanquishers are cheesy. Everything is ok in moderation, just don't kick the arse out of it.

Railguns. And anything with AP5, like pulse weapons, or hellguns.

...or bolt guns, or shuiken catapults, or splinter rifles, or gauss flayers, or flesh borers...basically almost all basic infantry weapons. Wait, I guess Guard are pretty screwed.

Strength in numbers!

Not to mention any of those if they have a longer range than a Heavy Bolter/Autocannon.

WE HAVE NO WEAKNESSES!!! *psst... the commissar is behind you*

anyway, i really dont think guard have a weakness. when youve got 150 + basic guys, 2 squads of the only good cc unit weve got, 2 chimeras whose job is to blow up after givving just a bit of covering fire, and 2 tanks that the enemy cant see...


i see no weaknes.


allthough i hate warp spiders, little 22 point ba*tards. >

Mid AP and mid strength.

do you guys think guard can soak up moderate close combat? it seems they make cc a big issue around here?

i have found somewhere to put my weird battle story!

i battled leestar a little while ago, i had a unit of chaso bikers fly towards one of my troop hq's, well, 2 had already died from shotting and 1 crashed in terrain but the 2 that assaulted where stuck in assault with 5 people for 3 turns, in the end 1 of mine fell and he lost his bikes. kick@$$!

[although i only beat them in the end because i commited another squad of 9 to the assualt]
