So my 40k is about to kick in at Games Workshop and I need some advice. I am 24 years old living in
my parents basement and this is the first time I have been able to put money away for my 40k.
My Imperial Guard company uses Leman Russ tanks which seem to be pretty self-explanatory, but there is some of it that
I don't understand. The company defaults to 15% veteran with another 25% for standard infantry, but I was thinking more
like 10-15%, at least to start, with the rest reserved for armor, or maybe a command unit.
Then it brings me to a page to choose how my points are invested, and this is where I
am virtually clueless. It says "Select a percentage of your total points to assign to each unit.
These total percentages must equal 100%." If 20 veterans count 140 points vs 110 for standard, can I equip my Leman Russ
with just stock investments (main gun, pintle bolters), las cannon,
and heavy flamer. There are a few options for each of these, and it is difficult for me to understand
exactly what it all means.
The next step after choosing my units is to estimate damage per turn vs defense, which I'm sure will confuse me as well.
Wise Susque, please HALP!
It might seem counter-intuitive to invest in plastics, but it can be a cheap way to meat up your points, especially if you're preparing to go into a 1000+ point battle - no sense in going in undermanned. Also Eldar rangers are a great bang for the buck. I'd just hold on to a few blister packs for now, don't even bother playing with them - they'll be worth tens in the coming years.

Blood for the blood god?
sounds like good advice, but I don't know, heresy??!!

And careful not to set up your game board too close to R&W.
This is kind of unsettling for me. I feel like I should have something relevant to say on most nerdy topics, but I've never played Warhammer.
Yeah, me either. I always wanted to, but sunk all my money into comics and baseball cards.
I have 0 artistic talent, so anything that requires painting is out for me. At this point I've sunk enough money into Magic that I don't really have any motivation to switch gears.
