hey there, i have a few critiques for your list. Drop the power swords! as loyal guardsmen we are only i3 which means that we are bloody useless in the assault. either commit to the expensive power fist or don't. Personally i would only take a power fist on a lord commissar a he might actually get into combat but that's just me. I wouldn't take flamers in blob squads cause unless they are at the front they can't shoot, cause template cat target friendly models, just take more grenade launchers. for your veteran squad, please commit to a role! If you want anti TEQ take plasma vets, if you want anti horde take flamer vets, if you want anti tank take melta vets. You get my point, taking one of each special weapon doesn't accomplish much. For your tanks, if you take the battle tank you have to not take anything else because once you fire the main gun the rest of the weapons must now snap fire thus making you 30pts investment pointless. For the bullgryns make sure you invest in a munitrum priest cause they get moraled really easily and you really don't want them running off since they are so expensive. After that all i can say is IG is an army of min max, take the maximum amount of stuff for the least amount of points. This means skip the gimmicky upgrades for your infantry squads and take more bodies. Anyway if you don't have the models for the option i have proposed then you should really consider them as your next investment in this hobby.

Thank you for the reply! This is a (hopefully) better version of the earlier list.

HQ

-Same CCS. 105 points.
-Lord commissar with powerfist and carapace armour. 90 Points. (Goes with the platoon-blob).
-Munitorun priest. 25 Points. (Goes with the bullgryns).

Troops

-Infantry regiment. PCS with vox and two infantry squads with grenade launchers, one has a vox, Heavy weapons squad with Three mortars. 210 Points.
-Veteran squad with Three plasmas and carapace armour. 115 Points.

Elites

-Bullgryns with one Power maul and brute shield for the bone 'ead. 160 Points.

Heavy support

-Leman russ battle tank. 150 Points.
-Leman russ vanquisher with a hull-mounted lascannon. 145 Points.

I have some anti-teq with the plasma-veterans, some anti-meq with the battle tank and some anti tank with the vanquisher. Annything else that I might need to change.

looks a lot better than it did! next step is for either more tanks or more infantry, both horde guard and armoured battalion styles are incredibly fun!

There was a post I read somewhere that said that for the cost of one power sword, you can afford 15 bolters on infantry squad sergeants, which is a much more efficient option. You'll kill a lot more with 15 bolt shots than an AP3 sergeant, is the logic.
Hope this helps, I realise this thread has been and gone  ;D
