    Just going through what else I had . I was able to make up the below to but never got around to using it. Is it still better go and load the battlefield with loads of troops on the ground ? with a Primaris Psyker
    & Priest supporting? rather than my original post above? Their Mordian Iron Guard my Troops. My opponents will be mainly Tau, Necrons , Tyranids and sometimes Space Wolves.

    Re: 2500 Imperial Guard

    There are no more platoons, FYI. You're going to want to get the new codex or build your force in Battlescribe. Vet squads and Platoon Commanders are Elite choices now and Command Squads are separated from the Company/Platoon Commanders.
    Crucifiers (SM codex) (11881/693 PL)
    Orks (3745/255 PL)
    Astra Militarum (8049/458 PL)
    Fallen Crucifiers (CSM codex) (####/354 PL)
    Death Guard (2232/123 PL)
    Primaris Marines (1699/80 PL)
