Grenade launchers in veteran squads are horrible. Let's just start with that. Oh wait, I see some pintle-mounted heavy stubbers too. Yikes. Shocked

Second list is better. Regular Leman Russes are kinda fail though. Still can't get past those grenade launchers. My sweet BS4 guys leap out of my Vendetta and... do nothing Crying or Very sad Heavy weapons in a platoon command squad would not be my first choice either, but if you decide to go with it at least drop their meltagun. Mixing weapons like that is pretty inefficient. If you like grenade launchers (and I'm pretty sure you do) a platoon command squad is an ideal formation to field 4 of them.

Philosophy-wise you've got a hybrid list with a mix of foot, armour 12 and armour 14 units. That's okay, but you have to understand that your opponent will always have an optimal target for whatever type of weapon he's shooting. That's why the fully mech lists tend to dominate the interwebs. Unless your opponent can pop a transport all of his anti-infantry firepower will be wasted. The famous "Leafblower" list was hybrid, but featured a large amount of armour 12 vehicles in an attempt to overwhelm the opponent's anti-vehicle firepower.

Yeah it seems you like grenade launchers, but as a IG player you need to get over them. they are an AMAZING gun, but in reality you need all the AP2 you can get. Plasma guns combine both AP2 and anti vehicle capability. Grenade launchers simply deal with light infantry which everything else in the IG list can do.

I play IG and I have 13 models with plasma guns. I dont necessarily field all of them all the time, but thats how important they are. Luckily these days the other member of the blister pack is a melta gun...i remember the days when you bought a heavy weapon you also paid for another guy with a lasgun...

my biggest problem is I created the army when I first started playing back in early 4th ed. I took what looked neatand what every came in the kits they came with. I now need to remodel my grenade launchers with meltas etc. everything in my list is wysiwyg and I just dont play them much so I do not get much of a chance to take the time to remodel the ones I need with what I want. although I have all the parts to do the change overs now.
