009 24th Cadian Light Infantry Army List

This, then, is my overarching default army list. Please note the following:

1) I have all of these models, but most of them (sadly) are only basecoated;
2) I only get to paint or play very rarely;
3) Although I've designed this to be fluffy, it's not too convenient to use in play in small games... but I'll discuss more of this another time;
4) Despite its size, it's mostly list-legal. That which seems not to be can be reshuffled around the FOC without affecting the gameplay, but it ruins the fluff. Trust me on this. It's possibly better as a contingent in an Apocalypse game anyway, when the FOC is irrelevant;
5) This is just the light infantry. Add to this the mechanised inf, the tank company, a FW baneblade and other assorted what-nots and you've got my entire Guard army.

THIS, then, is [my contingent of] the Light Infantry Bn of the 24th Cadian Regt:

Force HQ: Bn HQ: High Commander (from rules in WD308) with retinue. I have cool models for this, but have yet to finalise the details.

B Coy (a light company, the same as A and C Coy):

HQ Choices:

F/Sup Platoon 2: Exactly as F/Sup Pl 1, above.
Total = 393

Mortar Platoon (3):

HQ: As F/sup pl HQs, above, but without LI
Subtotal = 83

A Sub: 3 mortars [80]

B Sub: 3 mortars [80]

C Sub: 3 mortars [80]

Total: 323

Grand total for this force = 3162*

(*without points cost of High Command)

A discussion of some of the finer points of this list, including 'doctrines', legality and the High Command will follow anon. Also coming soon: some of my hardned veteran conversions! Yay!
