Default New IG player... Where to next?

Hello, I am starting up my first guard army and I want it to max out at 2000 pts.. What I have so far is a hq command squad with creed and a master of ordinance in a chimera, al'rahem and 2 infantry squads each in a chimera as well as a sniper vet squad with harker... Where do I go from here?

I was going to have a mech force with the vet squad infiltrating

First, welcome to the IG fold. Sounds like you've got a decent core of infantry there. If you are looking for a mechanized force, I will humbly direct you to my recent Beginner's Guide To Mechanized Guard article: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.ph...c,94390.0.html

If you read down, there is a section in there covering collecting as well.

One thing I have yet to see a review for is the manticore missile launcher... What are people's opinions on this unit?

I would reduce the number of special characters you plan on putting in your army. It it a little excessive to have 3 of them.

If your looking to add something a bit more special for your vets and maintain the mobility a small wing of Valk/Vendettas transport them around very quickly and safely for a very small cost. Also they bring some very useful firepower.

One of Harker's strengths is that he can fire a Heavy Bolter while moving. Along with him giving his squad Infiltrate, they're best equipped with close-range weapons like meltas or flamers.
