Default summer vacation project

Hi. the topic name is maybe very bad but whatever. My summer vacation have just started and my Tau army is nearly finished, so i was hoping that someone would post a 750 points army that is versatile (and cheap in IRL )

I've posted a similiar in the Dark Eldar. So you Guardsmen (and generals) can try to convince me that IG are better then DE.

I'm kinda new to IG myself but i chose the IG because they use tactics that acctuly looks like the way we fight in these days. and ofc they look way cooler

Ok

IG has more infantry but it is balanced by the fact that you get twice as many men in an box but in infantry alone you'll be spending more money for the basic stuff(HQ and 2 Troops).

For tanks on the other hand DE have 2, the ravager and raider. IG have the Russ(2 variants, even more if you buy IA) the chimera transport, hellhound and Bassies.

DE have more expensive troops that are only about as good as guardsmen(the basic warriors) then even more expensive elite troops.

Down to the basics

if you like tanks go IG, if you like hordes IG, but if you like elite expensive troops that you HAVE to use effectively to win, Go DE

Heres a cheaper in RL list, without relying on grenaders
Buying 3 boxes of Infantry and 1 box of Heavy Weapons 140 bucks at full price but most places have discounts so it could cost around 100

HQ

Heroic Senior Officer 118
Power Sword on Off
Flamer Gaurdsmen
Flamer Gaurdsmen
Flamer Gaurdsmen
Master Vox


Anti Tank Team 135
3 Lazcannons
Vox
SharpShooters
Light Inf

makes use of the Heavy weapon bases and the Kneeling models

TROOPS

Junior Officer 50
power sword
Vox

Inf Squad 93
Grenade Launcher
sharp shooters
Vox
Light Inf


Inf Squad 100
Missle Launcher
Because the Missle Launcher from the Heavy weapons platoon can be used on an Infantry men on foot so make use of three of them
sharp shooters
Vox
Light Inf


Junior Officer 50
power sword
Vox

Inf Squad 100
Missle Launcher
Vox
sharp shooters
Light Inf


Inf Squad 100
Missle Launcher
Vox
sharp shooters
Light Inf

746 points

The list was meant to be a list that has a chance in a real battle but I had to rely more heavly on Doctrines and Wargear to fill it out but keeping it cheap in RL
realistically playing IG is expensive

Yeah thanks all i go IG.

My local shop are going to close and tomorrow they lower the prices to 40% Friday 50% and at last Saturday 60%!!!

shopaholic anyone?

by the way gnome i like your list. Dark Eldar seems to be very advanced with their guerilla attacks and you must be very lucky with dices and such. IG is more like "Deserters will be shot!" and you are pushing forward with a huge guardsmen offence :P

*update*
meh the store didn't have any IG so i went to another store and bought Soulstorm
