Default A funny thing that's happening with an IG HQ

Hey!

I entered a small friendly comp on another board and it's just to see which member will have the better HQ. So I had 200 pts overall and I seeing that most people were going toward SM HQ, I put aside my beloved Chaplain Thu'Ook and decided to go to war with an IG HQ... I PM the organizer of that small comp and I wanted to be sure I could take an IG HQ since it was composed of 5 models (all included in the cost of the HQ). I was given permission 'cause he was sure IG HQ are not that powerfull... well, that's where I kicked in hard! Here's my HQ I'm using:

Doctrines
Hardened Fighters
Carapace Armour

HSO
Equipment:
Plasma pistol, power sword, refractor field, bionics

4 Guardsmen
Equipment:
4 Plasma guns

ATM, I have won all my 9 fights!!! No loses!!! The one I'm actually proud of is the Deamon Prince I killed in a rain of plasma fire!!! Now, I won all of those fights in the shooting phase... just hope My guy won't let me down 'cause if I'm charged, I'm not sure I'll win the day... still, I have 4 men with my HSO!!!

Go IG!!!

but why?
plasma is hot and ouchies
and its highly unlikely youll get 5 ones in the shooty phase

I might have too start putting more plasma in my HQ choice when i get my guard (and im likeing the carapace armour)

anything is possible. ive seen many a battle turn over a 1 on a roll.
im playing catachans so flamers are a plus in my assualt squads.

did you upgrade your guardsmen to vets? i would, esp after 9 victories

me? legend?
anyway catachans are the best army for balance. low points, iffy saves(but you are in the flipping jungle! armour dont matter with a tree in front if you!), great stats for guard, and all the numbers of a normal guard army.(i use the catachan codex... much less watered down than the stupid doctrines.)

COOL
okay back on topic

the way i see it is that Thu'Ook there dosent like getting into CC situations therefore the need for flamers is exempt

Problem with the new Rapid Fire rules is that, whilst you will get 10 Plasma shots at 12", statistically you'll frag two of your own men in the process.

Yet another reason I dislike 4th Edition...
