Default Need help kinda

I was thinking of making an infantry heavy static force with lots of lascannons. Still don't have the details waiting to borrow a friends codex. But I can't decide if that would be to much of a powergaming army. on one hand it's mostly ap 2 weapons on the other hand there aren't alot of them.

Well, this army would not do that well against the likes of horde armies (like Tyranids) but may prove nasty against Space Marines and Chaos...

Then again, you will have lasguns to use against infantry. Are you planning on taking any tanks?

Tejis:

You seem like the kinda player who wishes his army to be HUGE (numbers wise) with lots of infantry and a massive firing line.

Its possible to get many of your lascannons into this army. But you might want to think of taking somthing that isnt Las related like a single auto cannon or heavy bolter. Maybe a team of them if you wanted.
But honestly if you put some fluff together to go with the army it shouldnt be a power gaming army.

Heres a sample list for your ideas and this might actually work but it will be expensive in both points and cost. Its got all you wish for in it. All las and all men!!

The list isn't legal. You can't take Heavy Weapon Squads as HQ, they have to be taken in a Platoon. Re-read the Codex entry more carefully.

Firstly, the weapons squads need 3 guns in them. Secondly, on the HQ can take these squads.

I don't know where you got these units, but they aren't in the Codex.

These platoons are illegal; there is no JO in them.
