Subtotal = 310.

TOTAL = 1500.

DOCTRINES

1. Drop Troops
2. Rough Riders
3. Grenadiers
4. Sharpshooters
5. Iron discipline

The drop troops doctrine is only really for the sentinels now and again to surprise my opponent or just for a laugh. The rest of the doctrines are more fluff related.
The rest of the army is pretty much chosen from stuff I like the look of. Its meant to be more fun than uber-competitive and actually requires some skill to win with.
(I’m 50-50 after 5 games, beat SM and necrons drew against Tau and got shafted by DE and Nids. I’ve posted this more for discussing armies that are more balanced than the 1500 guardsmen horde, than because I REALLY need someone to tell me I need the kind of army it takes me longer to set out the models than it does to play the game. Please assume I know the flaws and did it anyway. I'm more interested in whether you think it would be fun to play with/against...)

Cheers all

It's a great list! But i've only one question...why did you take the Grenadier Doctrine when you only have one squad of them? You have two slots in the elites section and as a double bonus, you can equip the Storm Trooper squad to infaltrate or deep strike! so why did you take the doctrine? I say move it and get another one!

He needs Grenadiers because if he took them out, he'd only have 1 troop choice.

Just be careful with the rough riders. The hunting lance is nice but you have to pick your targets well.
