Default what next?

well as the post says really.

so far i only have the battle force. i aim to get a grenadiers force. but i kind of want an 800pts force which don't use the doctrines first.

so what should i get?

of course the essentials are this.
- Codex
- Command squad (junior or senior im ot sure which yet)

next i am considering getting the armoured fist boxset. i would use this squad as a command squad or as a normal one to support my fire base.

what do you recomend

Get the armored fist squad. Getting the Command Squad's Officer seems boring :P You are going to mount your HQ on chimeras right? Can I see your list? Then maybe I can help you a bit more

As I understand, you want a Grenadiers force of 800 points. Or an army, with the Battleforce you've got, to become 800 points?

Well, as you know on the box it's contents:

-20 Cadian Shock Troops. (Forms two squads of Ten)
- 3 Cadian Heavy Weapon teams.
- 1 Imperial Guard Leman Russ Battle Tank.

Now all you'll need for a basic force is a Infantry Platoon Command Squad, and possibly another box of Cadian Shock Troops. And of course a HQ Command Platoon to lead them.

Once you've got the IG Codex, I'll do my best to help.

ok cheers.

umm, what is the minimum squad size for the command squads (junior and senior) because i could maybe get both basics in one box. to save money for now and then i could get another HW squad or a SW squad
