What are you going to buy? I would suggest 2 boxes of infantry... Nearly 2 platoons which will help you alot. Remember in guard the key to success is numbers!

Still learning

depends on what kind of guard army your going to make. DT or Mec or heavy inf??

25-05-2006, 09:21
spongebob thats not even 1 platoon 9 guard and 1 sergeant per squad, 2 boxes equal 36 guard and 4 sergeants

1 platoon equals 5 squads so that doesnt equal 1 platoon

i am planning on filling my army up with Guards, Storm Troopers, Sentinals, 2 Leman Russ Demolishers and a Basilisks

:D all used to take down Necrons, Space Marines, Chaos, Dark Eldar, Eldar, Tau, Tyranids and Orks :evilgrin:

Brush your teeth

i think he neabt one minimum size platoon.

a good start to buying a guard army, is your basic infantry platoon with command squad and 2 infantry squads, then your armoured fist squad and army command.

so models wise a goog start will be a command box, a junior officer blister, 2 infantry boxes and a chimera. and then you can go on and get heavy weapons.

also im from the uk so i dont have a clue how far $100 will go

Yep I meant just a single platoon. Well
$50 is a platoon
$55 chimera, kaskrins
Oh wait www.games-workshop.com.au if youre curious about the cost.

ok, spongebob if i sounded angry or anything like that i wasnt i was just kinda verifying

also i have decided what im going to paint them and what i will get

i will get 2 Guardsman box's

the Armour will be Black and the clothe will be catachan green along with the weapons

im only using 3 tanks as i listed before 2 Leman russ demolishers and a basalisk

If you can, id go for the battleforce. Give you a decent amount to start with and fills most of your slots. If not, get a couple of boxes of troops, command blister, special weapons blister, maybe a commander boxset. Whatever you choose, you will always need more troops!

agree. for £50 you get at least £65-£70 worth of warhammer

An Australian battalion is $150, so he can't afford it.
