I've been playing 40k for about 5 or 6 years now. I currently have about 4000 points worth of Imperial guard, with another 4000 point armored company in the works (waiting on the packages from ebay!) I also have roughly 2500 points worth of SoB and Grey Knights. I discovered this forum while doing a google search for "Warhammer 40k tactics" Looks like I found the right place! I've learned quite a bit about what works and what doesn't for the footslogging grunts so if you have questions about starting an IG army, let me know.
