Default Recommend me a new army setup.

I bought a crap load of new IG stuff today.

I've got a battleforce x2, Cadian Shock Troops x2, two Stormtrooper squads and two HQ's (Yeah, I don't know why I got two. Reserves if I lose the first one, perhaps? ).

Go ahead, make your creativity run amock.

Do you have the new codex too? Since it was released may this year.

As for suggesting it might be useful to know what you have besides the battle force's storm troopers and HQ's (am I correct in thinking that these are the command squad boxes)

It might also be useful to know which battle force you bought the new or the old one.

Threads like these always make me wonder a bit.
The opening poster has just spent hundreds of dollars to purchase these models. Then, he will spend hundreads of hours assembling, cleaning and then painting his models. Afterwards, he will spend hours playing with these models. Why does the OP not want any influence over something that he paid good money for, and will have to live with?

Also, Cyreidel, open ended questions like this are really difficult to answer. You have two command squads, which means you have access to several special weapons. This opens your doors a bit. Do you want your troop choices to be composed of infantry platoons, or veterans, which can take 3 special weapons each?

You have a minimum of 6 heavy weapon squads, many more with conversions. Do you want these to be found in your squads, or seperatly in heavy weapons squads?

Your only vehicles are the two sentinels that come with your two battleforces. You need to decide, do you want heavy armour, or perhaps no armour at all? Leman Russ' are invaluable in my opinion. So I'd recommend you purchase one. Maybe exchange one of your stormtrooper squads for one.

Anyways, there's some food for thought, think it over, post what you'd like, and then people would be happier to help!

Actually, I have the old Battleforce's, which came with a Leman Russ, so I have two of those.

Anyways, I'l think of something, than I'l post here.
