Guardsmen are like ants. No matter how many get vaporized, they just keep on coming. Why can't pancakes be the same? I would pass the salt, but I just got tabled.

Can someone give a good explanation on these guys because there is nothing in the fluff on the wiki sites?

They are the new storm troopers. That's it.

Orphaned children turned to stone cold killers that will kill anythong short of a terminator and they will smile while doing it.

I think these guys were specifically made to be Blood Angels allies. That's what they will be for me, anyways!

Wait a minute. I have to use a formation in order to ally? Pass.

Um, yeah, what? There's a "platoon" that is almost the same as the IG platoon but that is more for FoC than anything.

A review from a prolific Dakkadakka user hinted at you only being able to take the formations for allies, but I probably misinterpreted as the BRB says you can take one HQ and one troops (and more with restrictions) as Allies.

http://www.talkwargaming.com/2014/04/ne ... tus_4.html

Still, the Codex doesn't seem to be competitive by itself and seems to be useful as allies. S3 18" hellguns? MEQs will crap all over you. At this point the "Astra Miliwhatever" seems far more useful with cheap Wyverns/hydras and Sentinels. Seriously, armored Sents are something like 40 points each. I think I'll sell my Blood Angels and field a crapton of these guys with plasma cannons in 150 pt squadrons. That. Is. Insane. It gets even more ridiculous with a squadron of Wyverns. Nuke the enemy infantry for days.

I regret selling my 2 platoons of troops, three Russes, two Valks and Chimera. They would be super cool to have right now joined up with the aforementioned units.

I bets its going to be exactly the same as codex: =][=, "May field as primary, or field as a special ally detachment known as blahblahblah"
