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.

  1. This is just the list I've been meaning to tell my friend about. He said one reason he doesn't play to often is because he wasnt to win and doesn't feel that he has much chance. Referred him to this blog last week. Been meaning to send him one of your lists for 3 months. Never made it a priority. Have forwarded him this link and said to share his list with you to see if you have feeback. Told him that you, Natfka, have been instrumental in making my Dark Eldar a success.

    Thanks again!

  2. The list looks awesome, but I don't understand how it works, you have more then the FOC allows. I'm still new to the game only playing for the past five months. I'd like to know how this all plays out at 2500pts.

  3. I assume you are referring to the troop selections as being over. Its not. Foc for this list is 2 HQ, 2 Elite, 5 Troop, 2 Fast Attack, 3 Heavy Support. I will do a follow up on how it works.

  4. Ok I see now, you had 9 Veteran melta/plama gun squads, that's where I was confused it looked like you had 18 melta vets, and 9 plasma vets. Though the HQ's seem off, you have 2 CCS, which is 2 HQ's and 1 Lord Commissar which is another HQ, so that's three unless there's some rule I've overlooked that allows 3 HQ's.

  5. Thats just how army builder prints out. Its listing 9 veterans and 1 sergeant. I clarified above. I forget sometimes that people are not very familiar with army builder.
