I have 4,500 points of IG - consisting of Death Korps Infantry, Armoured Battle Group, and an Imperial Knight all combining to form the Steel Fox Regiment ready to lay down traitor lives in the name of the Emperor. I am ready to transition from the warp and join the fray in defending the Imperium.

Don't worry Lovell, the Imperium would never leave you abandoned and alone to hold down a whole sector by yourself like those treacherous heretics did to the poor Maynarkh.

Oh, wait, you're playing cannon fodder Imperial Guard? Well, maybe the Imperium won't...

Have you looked at the Mont'ka formations for the Guard yet? Do they add any useful buffs for your armoured group?

Joe, I am planning on running the foot soldiers under the Death Korps of Krieg Assault Brigade - using the Forlorn Hope special rule (additional objective, brand new platoon when one is completely destroyed, special orders), and a couple of other special rules. The list is in the Fall of Orpheus Imperial Armor book. I am running the Armored unit under the Armored Battle Group rules (special set of Orders, Tanks as TROOP choices), and the Imperial Knight under the Oathsworn Detachment rules.

I know there are new rules/detachments coming out, but I've been planning/building the army using this configuration from the very start.

Interestingly enough, for a guy who doesn't REALLY consider himself a 40K "fanboy", I now have 4,500 points of IG - including 2 Superheavies, and about 14,000 points of Necrons....I wonder what I have for the games I AM a fanboy of?

Surprise family event on Jan. 2 means I'm out for combat patrol. This is tragic because I just about finished my objective markers, which I planned to debut there:

I am still apocalypsing on the 3rd. To that end, I will be attempting to make 2 tree trunks for people to hide in, one for each side, 9" high and about 18" wide.
