Drop the third squad and get heavy weapons, fast. You have no real way to deal with anything above light infantry.

And remember, a guardsmen&#39;s BS is 3, so you&#39;ll be missing alot of hits.

You seriously need things like:

Autocannons
Heavy Bolters
Missle Launchers.

Hope I helped!

2 Missile Launchers.* ;D

And move the heavy bolter off, the HQ is enough of a target and points sink as it is.

Seriously, you NEED heavy weapons like missile launchers. And your HQ is to points heavy, IMO.

And be sure to put the heavy weapons in full squads.

...Seriously, your HQ will be annihilated. Put it in with some buffer meat.

Ok. First change one platoon to an armoured fist squad. This leaves you with more points, more mobility, and the multi-laser / autocannon gives you some light tank busting firepower. And just letting you know, I dont think that guard commanders can take a storm bolter AND power weapon. They cant hold a storm bolter in one hand without terminator honours which they cant take. I might be wrong, but that&#39;s what my local games workshop owner told me.

Tau aun..
you can take 2 weapons, but onlly one can be a two handed weapon. power weapon in 1 handed. Stormbolter is two so it works

then what would you suggest as a good HQ? (to everyone)
