it would be possible but it would also involve a heck of alota money $$$ (as you only get a certain amout of stuff in each pack and it would take at least 3 packs too make 1 a squad).

also thed be best suited with warrior weapon doctrines and prolly be the Kanak army.

In all it wouldnt be a very useful army either with IG (or for you GI) as theyd need at least some support (even the kanak)

the only way you could sucessfully do this is by using warrior weapons with catachan models (as there packs come with the most CC weapons and pistols)

unless someone else has a better idea :

this would be better suited to a different army (plus IG arnt very good in CC anyhow)

An all CC Guard Army can be very devastating, Hardened Fighter, Warrior Weapons, Vets, and Tooled-Up HQ's you're gonna have a lot of Melee-Dakka.

117pts.
Commissar with Laspistol and Power Fist. Attached to HSO.
60pts.
Preacher with Eviscerator. Attached to HSO.
65pts.
Sanctioned Psyker with Force Weapon and Honorifica Imperialis. Attached to HSO.
62pts.

total: 304pts.

Thats true, Wargamer, but its not very good or effeicient and with the new line of sights rules, you have to be very clever to get them into combat. Plus at 38pts a model for that HQ choice, it isnt very effective.
However, I have used a JO with BP, PW and 4 men with flamers. For 70pts its great as it toasts light infantry and with so many auto-hits your gonna kill some marines making your points back. Also if they die, they die. They are only guard after all! More meat for the Imperial Grinder!

Alone, no... but when put out of sight, or in an army with bigger things to worry about, then it's a great unit.

Besides, I use 3rd Ed rules more. 4th gets more broken each time I use them...
