Default Rebuilding my army

Some background information:* My name is Eric, I live in Gainesville Florida and I began gaming when I was eleven years old, approximately ten years ago.* My first army in anything was Imperial Guard for 40k second edition.* I spent the next seven years having many a happy Saturday gaming at my local store the Traveling Mage.* When I was eighteen I started school at the University of Florida, and honestly found myself to be more interested in playing rugby, drinking four nights a week, and chasing women, though not really in that order.* Having largely settled down now that I'm 21, and on a three year hiatus from gaming, I am thinking of getting back into the hobby.* I figured why not start up again with my guard.* However, I only played a few games of third edition, and found the game to be far to mainstreemed to really enjoy.* I figured I would post what models I had and see what I could make with them.*


I have
one command HQ
* * * *with captain, comlink, heavy and special weapons- all of which are metal
two command squads
* * * with Lieutenants, comlinks heavy and special weapons- all of which are metal
one platoon of three squads
with sarge, heavy and special weapons each- all of which are metal
one platoon of two squads
with sarge heavy and special weapons each- the only plastic guard I own
my HQ platoon had three squads- all metal
three mortars
three heavy bolters
two las cannons and and auto cannon
I also have a leman russ normal versions
A leman russ exterminator version
and a chimera that I will probably never use as it has been largely converted for usage in the now defunct game of Vor: The Maelstrom (which was an aw some game btw.)

I also have loads of necromunda figures that I'm sure that could be used as militia, probably around fifty or sixty
And probably just as many regular human models from various other lines, such as Void human troopers, though I Imogen Games Workshop still hates all other games with a passion.

I imagine this is around 800 points. I probably won't use the chimera as an armoured fist squad, and I no longer have any las cannons because I loaned them to a friend to use at Jonescon (huge event in Gainesville) and will likely never see them again. Too bad to since they were the old model cannon instead of all this new fangled catachan stuff.


All that said, where should I start, apart from the obvious buy fourth edition rules and IG codex (I already own second and third editions, plus the catachan.....)

Metal age. i would recomend starting over with the troops. Too bad you have to buy a special book to use the russ exterminator.

Why do I need to start over with the troops? Theres probably fifty catachan, twenty of which are plastic. And countless metal special and heavy weapons teams. I assume that those are still acceptable models to play games with. Right? I imagen you can still find them on ebay or bartertown.

You are correct; old guard models are still acceptable, and by rights deserve a lot more respect, than the new ones.

Yeah lascannons and/or missle launchers would be a good idea in some of your squads. Anything armored will be a threat to your army.
