Default What next?

I currentally have 3 leman Russes (2 Battle tanks one demolisher), two bassies 80 guardsmen three command squads (two platoon one senior), 20 stormies 3 autocannons,and 2 chimeras.

While this is a two thousand point army, I still am anxious for more guard. So I'm asking what do you more veteran commanders recommend.

Well a Hellhound or 2 wouldn't be a bad idea. Maybe an ogryn sqaud would be good for intimidation purposes. For a fast moving unit get some rough riders (me personally I dont like but if they've got lances then they'll be a deadly counter charge unit). Another Command HQ but stock up with heavy weapons and lastly some advisor commisars would be good.

I would go with the roughriders as they are an excellent counter assault unit against enemy nasties, but there biggest downfall is there one hit wonder, just make sure you hunt an expensive enemy unit, roughriders are superb at intimidation I would know.

Ogryns also wouldn't be a bad idea, my 2 cents would be to throw in a commissar, and put them inside a chimera, and there you have it a perfect all round charge unit.

Some armoured fist squads never hurt anyone?

You only have 3 heavy weapons? (the 3 auto cannons.)

Get more heavy weapons, they are the most important part of a guard army...

Depends on your style of play really, my favourite is special weapons, not one heavy weapon in sight who needs em.

heavy weapons, heavy weapons, and more heavy weapons.

Throw one of the special characters in your 2nd hq slot. They can be fun to play around with.

Sentinels and Hellhounds dude. You have no fast attack other than the chimeras, which means you will have a hard time going on the offensive.

More infantry. Are there any special weapons/ heavy weapons in your infantry squads?

No I have no special weapons in any infantry squad because I used to have them and they weren't worth the points to me (Flamers couldn't get close enough and grenade launchers always missed).

Generally, lasguns won't kill jack. There are the rare occasions where you have tremendous luck and down a carnifex or an avatar with lasguns, but you can't rely on such freak happenings to win a game. Special and heavy weapons are a must.

That's why you've gotta get meltas and plasmas!
