Army List – Corinthian 9th Imperial Guard

I have always liked the Imperial Guard. I had am army back in the day of 2nd Edition 40K. Back then I had Catachan models, or ‘Jungle Jims’ as we called them at the time.

The 5th Edition Codex is pretty fantastic, so I did play around with ideas for collecting an army for some time.

Here is the 2000 point outline I put together. It includes my two current favourite Leman Russ variants, and the Devil Dog, with it’s awesome Melta Cannon. Some people advised me to take a Commissar Lord instead of a Company Command Squad, but I decided I wanted the potential benefit of the orders system. I also like the idea of tank-hunting Sentinel walkers, hence the lascannon. The Infantry Squads  have heavy bolters or autocannon so i don’t have to worry too much if I need to move them. The Heavy Weapon Squads will cover them with their missile launchers.

If I were to add to this army, I would add another Leman Russ – possibly a Vanquisher for dedicated anti-tank support, a Valkyrie to carry my Storm Troopers, a Primaris Psyker, and of course, more infantry.
