Starting Out On Youtube! - List Tweaking Part 1

Hi guys, Ragg speaking, and today I posted up my first vid on Youtube!

Still figuring out a ton of stuff... But like really: a. ton. of. stuff.

I basically start up a series of 2/3 vids about how you can get a very good, working tournament list while still feeling comfortable with it!

Today's vid is simply me rambling for 20mins straight, but hey, it's still worth a watch:

Your thoughts & criticism are very much welcome, so head on over to youtube and drop something in the comments section please!

Imperial Guard Heavy Support Choices - Armoured Artillery Part 1

Hi Everyone,

Raggbur here, and today I want to talk about some of the pie plating choices an IG player can choose from.
About half a year ago, I went to quite big tournament called Insurrection 4, where I ended nicely in the middle (26 out of 54). In my IG list, I went completely anti-termie and brought along 2 Demolisher Russes (24", S10 AP2).
The cannons themselves were awesome off course, and the AV14 front really helps out in the current meta, but: there are so many cool artillery bonuses I felt I was missing out on.

So, I started experimenting with the Armoured Artillery sections in 6th Edition: and I love them! Now, little disclaimer here: I currently use the Forgeworld pieces instead of the normal IG ones. Yeah sure, they're a bit OP, I admit that, but I just love the look and feel of these huge cannons pumping out just as huge shells, blasting the enemy battle line to pieces.
But, today, we're not going to talk about those: we'll stay within the boundaries of our own (awesome) codex.

So, over the course of the following posts, I will be taking a look at the different Artillery pieces & why I think they would be fitting in your standard IG army or allies.

For easy reference, I'll mark them with a score on D10 10 in how good I think they generally are.
