Its been a long time since I have thrown up a list on the blog, so with all the email requests I have been working on lately with readers, I thought I would throw down an Imperial Guard list that I like. Note that my favorite point level is 2500pts, so I generally make lists at that point level. The games are just more enjoyable, and I think the days of 1500pts are really disappearing.

Here is the list. Please note that the Commissar Lord will be attached to the combined 3 infantry squads near objectives in the backfield for the 2+ cover save, while the other 5 troop units will be charging around the battlefield in their chimeras with 1 melta unit (the one without a chimera) for starting for sure in a Vendetta. There is always flexibility to throw another veteran unit into a vendetta as well during deployment.

I just could not come up with the 55pts to give the second melta unit a chimera without sacrifices elsewhere. Its a mech heavy list, with plenty of ground troops if you need to create that barrier to protect first round armour assaults.
