Default How many guardsmen do you play with in 2000pts?

I wonder this due to the fact I would like to fact that all the guards around us only play 20 to 40 men per 2000pts game. Also tell me how much if over 120.

20 to 40 men per 2000pts is [size=16pt]extremely[/size] low. Mech infantry might have numbers like that. I'm at about 95 in my 1500 point army. And if I max out the vehicles in my army to get to 2000 points I'll still have 95 guardsmen at 2000. You can't go wrong with guardsmen, they do it all.

by buying a load oftanks and other bits of gear that ren't from the infantry platoon??

I would have to say if I ever get to 2000 points with my infantry guard I will be looking at the 120+ mark - plenty of heavy weaponry!!

If you're just counting platoons, I only field 1, 3 squad drop platoon, so thats 35, buy with my HQ, theres another 4 support squads, so that brings the tally up to just over 60 counting the HQs bodyguard. I also use grenadiers though, so I've got another 20 stormtroopers on top of that with a stack of supportig tanks.

I am working on getting more models though, and fielding 2 3 squad platoons, but I use steel legion models, so a single squads costs me $80 plus tax, plus any special weps I put in the squad. Archive prices are ridonculous.

Holy crap! You can squeeze all that into a 2000 point army?!

Its tricky but yeah, lots of points slicing and finding cheaper ways to do stuff. Like how if you have a junior officer with an honorifica imperialis then its 5 points cheaper than if you did a normal one. I also recently dropped carapace armor making stuff alot cheaper.
