Default 1500pt Imperial Guard list.

This is for an upcoming tourney. I don't have much more in the form of Infantry. I also have no interest in running an all Vet squad list, I don't plan to win, just want to have fun: Any thoughts?

Plasma Gun x2
Lascannon HWT

Veteran Squad
Meltagun x3


Heavy Flamer
Flamer x3

Infantry Squad 1
Grenade Launcher
Autocannon HWT

Infantry Squad 2
Grenade Launcher
Autocannon HWT

Special Weapon Squad
Grenade Launcher x3

Heavy Weapons Squad 1
Autocannon x3

Heavy Weapons Squad 2
Autocannon x3

Vendetta Gunship

Vendetta Gunship

Leman Russ
Heavy Bolter Sponsons

Leman Russ
Heavy Bolter Sponsons

Leman Russ Demolisher
Heavy Flamer
Multi-Melta Sponsons

I plan to board the PCS and the Special Weapons Squad into Vendettas if I need to grab objectives last minute. Like I said, I don't really have anything else to work with as far as Infantry. So how will this fare?

There's nothing particularly wrong with any of the unit builds, except that HF in the PCS isn't worth its extravagant cost over a standard Flamer. I'm also not a fan of GL's as it is one of the lest efficient and capable SW's, but you're not bothered by that so not a big deal.

The Demolisher is most effective either with Plasma Sponsons or just a Hull HF, but your build is still decent and will make any opponent think twice about his vehicles' movement.

I also put units like SWS's etc in my Vendettas for late(r) turn Objective contesting etc, but I never expect the Vendettas to last that long....more of a 'holy shit, they're still undamaged so I can actually use them as I hoped' kinda moment

The list will certainly be fun and isn't 'weak' overall, although HWS's and 10 - Men Infantry Squads are 'weak'...as in easy to kill.

Best of luck at the Tourney
