Default How good are they?

What's so good about the new codex and would you suggest them allying with my space marines.

No, they do not want to ally with your Space Marines.

Guard don't need space marines anymore, the astartes are ..... antiquated. Well that's one mans opinion anyway. The only thing's i've notice are a much more structured arrangement some cool new special characters, orders are nice and these things called vehicle squadrons, yeah... nine leman russes, or nine of any of our NEW shiny artillery are nice.


oh almost forgot... we have air cav now, valkyries came to normal 40k. so... yeah we don't need space marines anymore.

With the advent of the new codex allying is doubtfully legal and it is also not needed. The 5th ed codex has everything you need and even more to field a stand-alone army. Heck i never manage to fit all the nice goodies i want in my 1500pts lists and marines won't help that. Also allied troops can't really benefit from orders and it would be hampering that advantage.

In all, my valorous guardsmen look at my enemies marines and say : Your soldiers are obsolete.

Although one has to admit through gritted teeth that three Space Marines are worth more than a single Ogryn, and they're also a little cheaper. Advantages: -1S, but same number of bolter shots at twice the range or double the number of bolter shots at same range, same number of attacks, same number of wounds, better BS, better WS, much better I, better LD, and most importantly, much better armor save. Only downside is -1S, -1T and lack of furious charge, but the above mentioned advantages and the 5 points you save (shiny new piece of wargear?) make all the difference.

But you have to think about who hold the gun too and what the cost is

True but with the simple amount of wounds they have you have to consider their close combat prowess. and with a good weapon for assaults they're prefectly suited for bare bones, no fancy trick (power stuff) combat.

Welcome to the boards Chapter Champion. Such open ended questions are generally frowned upon. Consider using the search function and looking here to find information on the new IG codex.

Locked. If anyone has any questions feel free to send me a PM.
