So yeah, its been a while. You know how it is, life takes over, hobby seems like a chore, your opponents get boring, all the usual crap. I decided not to fight it, and just stopped being interested in 40k for a while.
Hopefully though, all that is in the past. I have booked my first game of 6th edition for tomorrow (Thursday) night and want to take my guard for an outing. Only issue is, I have no idea what to take. I don't want to go into my first game with a crap army and no chance of winning, so I am asking for the cumulative experience of you guys so far. What works for guard these days, and what doesn't?
Having read numerous blogs and articles since the start of 6th (I haven't been able to let go entirely it seems), it would appear that the days of Chimeltas and Hydras are over, Vendettas are awesome as ever, blob squads are having some kind of renaissance, and everyone is convinced that allies are the new black.
I have enough men and tanks to field virtually anything, so I am thinking of trying some sort of hybrid army with a large blob, and possibly some allied Marines or Blood Angels to help attack into midfield. Honestly though, I have minimal idea what truly works, or what is truly needed in this edition.
