Arny Submission: Imperial Guard 2,000pts

We are continuing to look at the lists readers are making all this week, and see just what people are experimenting with. List building is just a ton of fun, and I will be posting up in the order I receive them.

So if you would like to submit an army list (if you already have an idea of what you might field), shoot me your list to share with others. Please title your email "8th Edition Army Submission" or similar, and shoot it off to Only first names will be used along with the submission

So, the Imperial Guard are looking badass right now.
Here's an attempt at an Infantry Company, using two Brigades, to get lots of nice Command Points.
It consists of the Commander, and his Command squad, with their assigned Commissar in HQ,
and 4 Platoons, consisting of:

1 Platoon Commander and Command Squad,
3 Infantry Squads
1 Heavy Weapon Squad
1 Rough Rider Squad
1 assigned Lord Commissar

It's 17 points shy of 2,000. A missile launcher or something on a squad somewhere would bump it up a bit.

In total, there are almost 200 guys on the table.

Theorycrafting, of course, but a fluffy, dangerous infantry company is possible.

1 Company Commander: 35
Power Sword, Bolt Pistol
5 Lord Commissars: 5 x 55: 275
Power Sword, Bolt Pistol

12 x Infantry Squads: 57 x 12: 684
Plasma Gun + Vox + Power Axe

4 Platoon Commanders: 4 x 25 = 100
Bolt Pistol, Power Sword

5 Command Squads: 53 x 5: 265
Medic, Vox, 2 Plasma

Fast Attack:
6 x Rough Rider Squadrons: 50 x 6 = 300
Hunting Lances

Heavy Support:
3 x Heavy Weapons Squads: 3 x 72 = 216
3 Lascannons
3 Heavy Weapons Squads: 3 x 36 = 108
3 Heavy Bolters
