So, I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about the one and only army that I've never played. The lowly Imperial Guard. I've never had a taste for them, and likely never will. Seems to much of a modern military army and not a futuristic army..... Meh.
But, with my recent thoughts on what would scare me, it's not the "Leafblower" army that bols uses, it's more along the lines of the following:
Company Command Squad - 165
- 4x Plasma Guns
- Chimera - Heavy Flamer - Multi-Laser
So, it's 19 autocannons
18 Flak Auto Cannons
10 Melta Guns
4 Plasma Guns
13 Chimera Chassis
11 Scoring Units
That to me is a far greater danger than the leafblower can be.
Maybe I'm not popping all of the tanks first turn, but I can pop enough of them to give my opponent headaches until the meltas show up an ruin the rest of their day.
