Default Just need a little help...

Im running with the idea of adding Nork to my company command squad to give it alittle kick. Now should I just scratch that idea and go with 2 body guards insted? I just cant squeeze in the MOO that I want so bad. Im trying to go with a 4,000 pt. mech guard army with a platoon of static guardsmen plus heavy weapons squads aided by 2 manticores to sit on a objective and give me some artillery. My company comand squad will be there with them they also have a chimera on hand.
Well what should I/you do?
Or forget the bodyguards all to gether and use the points else where.
Thanks.

If you're keeping your command squad hidden in the back then you don't really need him at all.

The way you have your army set up, you don't really need Nork at all. With you company command hidden in the back you will be fine, as you have a lot of other "juicy" targets for your opponent to be distracted.

Yup I dropped him completely. Thanks. I also shimmied around alot of points and units. But still only came up with a total of 155 troops, 3 LRBTs(not in a squadron), 1 LRER, 1 devildog, 5 chimeras, baneblade, 2 manticores, and a stromlord! Not counting the guys on the ground of in the stormlord. And I still dont feel its enough....I need more armour!!!! >

Would any of you really care if I used DKoK infantry(not the grenadiers) as my vetrans w/ carapace armour? The grenadiers @ forgeworld just dont have the models for the options I want. Not unless I want to spend my lifes savings. But what do you think? I could just say their specialists sent in to help out an incompetent officer. I could even paint my Stormlord Kreig colors.

Jester,

If these are the only Kriegers in your army, that is enough to set them apart from the rest of the troops as they have the Gas-Masks and snazzy looking equipment/uniforms. I don't see a problem.
