First of all, doesn't your HQ need to be in platoon form? And why is your commander a sergeant and your squad leaders lieutanants? I hope that this is a typo. For each troop choice you would need a platoon of troops. Do you even have the IG codex? If not, get one before you make an army list.

Mortis.
dont get soo worked up. its okay, he's just seeing what needs to be done and how to do it. if you wish to critisise do it so in a polite manner.

okay then
Tactica 100.
looking okay for a start (considering you dont have the dex yet). but a few points to consider here.......
1- Your HQ choice is being led by a sergeant. you cant do this. The army must be led by an officer. (lieutenant and above).
And i would suggest getting a techpreist in there.

2- Your troop sqauds are being led by lieutenants, although this can be done it must be the platoon leader squad that has the lieutenant (or above) in it. your normal squads need to be led by veteran sergeants or sergeants.

3- Your troop squads cannot have any more then 10 men in them (1 Sgt and 9 guardsmen)

4- Your legionares are elites choices as they are hardened veterans and may only be again up to 10 men.

5- You missile squad and be done..... but..... you may only have 3 ML in the squad and need 2 men for each heavy weapon team.

6- Listed you only have 1 platoon... you will two for a legal army.

7- Your fast attack looks fine for a steel legion army.

8- The support choices you have listed could be better used in the fire support teams for a platoon. Try and get a tank or two in as heavy support... following fluff with the steal legions reputation for using vechiles.

9- for ever normal squad of troops you take try and put in a squad of armoured fists. and then mount them in chimeras.


hope this helps tactica. when you get the codex go through it and reconfigure your squads and choice accordingly.

Well before all else, get the Codex. I can tell straight off you've never even read the Codex. Buy it, read it, learn how the IG are organised, then post up a list.

yeah, sorry about the outburst. Make sure to get the codex. The IG have a very unique organization style.

I was windering if there are any units that the steel legion can use from the normal IG's example: tankes or stormtroopers.
If so please tell me. Thanks

Yes, SL can take all normal IG units. (although im not sure about conscripts)
storm troopers are fine.
hope you can get a Dex and a full fledged list up soon
