Hello hello fellow Guardsman!

I'm taking my first foray into the honourable ranks of the Imperial Guard and although I know there has only really been speculation on the leaked index info, I would love to get any thoughts on this initial list.

The list has thing that I think look fun or cool but is also aiming to be semi competitive on the table.

2000pts. Astra Militarum
Brigade Detachment
+9 Command Points

Pask w/ Battle Cannon, Lascannon, 2 Heavy Bolters 235pts

Primaris Psyker w/ Force Stave 40pts

Lord Commissar w/ Powerfist, Plasma Pistol 65pts

Elites

Ministorum Priest w/ Chainsword 35pts

Platoon Commander w/ Power Axe, Plasma Pistol 30pts

Manticore w/ Heavy Bolter 133pts
Leman Russ w/ Executioner Plasma, 2 Plasma Cannons, Lascannon 202pts

1996pts

The Platoon commanders allow me to spread out my lines and give orders to each infantry squad. The bare bones guys sit near the lascannon squads while 2 of the axe and pistol dudes go in Chimeras. The third will follow the blob of Conscripts along with the the Priest, the Commissar, and the Psyker.

If I got points wrong or if you have any ideas on making the list tighter please let me know!

Cheers

With 8th not officially out yet speculative lists are all we have until everyone starts building up experience, as only a few have got games in so far. That said this looks nice to me, plenty of troops but no shortage of characters to support them and a good number of vehicles on top. Sounds like a fun list too :)

Thanks dude! Just hoping its a good jump off point really. The orders look great so giving that to every squad seems like a must.
The blob with its 4 supporting characters is mostly for fun but it seems like it'll still be effective in either absorbing fire or swamping something else if it gets ignored.

I'm trading some of my Ork collection for most of these models so hopefully I will be able to get a game in with some of the pieces this month.
