worth putting that idea from the Ogryn thread that they attach quite well to SHTs?

they can hide from being shot at and provide decent bodyguards from a fast moving assault enemy.

This is well over a year old now. I'll look into revisions and/or accompaniments.

Wow - as someone who has delved into IG for the first time this is gold, mate. Big ups on the effort and thanks for other gamers' useful replies.
Things like the setup of Sentinels to protect arty, the different roles of armored formations and the general overview of the list is priceless. Wish I'd read this before my recent outing with Guard, but you live you learn, I guess.
And they ARE Guard after all...plenty where the dead ones came from!
Thanks again for the enlightening contribution.

Use anything from here if you want. Or for that matter any of the other albums.

Good list. Although I will mixed Basilisks and Manticores together in the same artillery company, ex. One company of 9 Basilisks with an attached Manticore platoon of 3 vehicles, since according to the epic armageddon rules, you lose a turn each time you fire the rockets on a Manticore since you have to ripple fire them all in the same turn; you show this by turning the front end of the vehicle towards you after each turn. The rule also states that since the manticores have a slow reload time that require one turn to reload all the rockets, hence the lose a turn rule.. So, if you took all manticores as your heavy artillery support, you leave yourself open without artillery support. Whereas, the Basilisk does not suffer from this same problem. So, you can fire them on every turn. Since I like a lot of guns in my army, I attach a platoon of griffons to a combined arm battlion, ex. 2 mechanized infantry companies and 2 tank companies. I also have a engineer company/sapper company for close support with a platoon of demolishers for close support and a platoon of bombards for close range artillery support since both of those are better at taking out fortications. Of course, I would also attached a platoon of four sentinels for screens and for security so I don't get ambush especially for my headquarter units. Of course, I would have at least one Superheavy Tank Company attached to the Armored Regiment as well one Superheavy Tank attached to each of my tank companies. I am somewhat influenced by the Germans attaching Tiger tanks to their tank companies and divisions as a spearhead unit with the Tiger forming the center of a spear; the lighter tanks are the two wedges of the spear. According to the points and the rules, the Superheavy tanks seemed to be employed the same way.
