Also, what is a 'Lemon' Russ?

Is that the citric version of the well known battle tank?

Yep, hadn't noticed that - I think giving Leman Russ a lascannon might be a waste of time....

...unless you want somebody to get hit over the head with it

Looks interesting.

I haven't really used guard much but would observe a couple of options:

In the infantry platoon you might be better with lascannons in the heavy weapon squads so you can maximise order use on that squad e.g. 'bring it down' on three lascannons in one go (i.e. put the heavy bolters in the infantry squads if you want both)

You could also do with voxs in the key squads (e.g. plasmagun veterans) for the same reason - makes key orders much more likely to go off

I think you will lose a lot of guardsmen with this list - very much the point, but be prepared to snackrifice them to keep the key tanks going!

Good luck painting all the tanks btw...

I would prefer to take them as a separate heavy weapon squad but I was advised that putting them in the infantry squads kept them alive longer.

For a big theme game I might take them as a separate unit and stick heavy bolters in the units though.

Having played guard I would disagree with Alex's first point as with an infantry platoon you will be combined squading them a lot to maximize commissar effectiveness so will be one unit anyway but voxes on vets and atlest one in the infantry platoon would be a good idea. Also voxes on command squads and a chimera for the company command to shout out of would be good

Agree totally with the points above if you are combined squading the infantry squads - my observations were based purely on the fact they were marked as separate.

Vox units worth every penny in my opinion
