Pros: The fluff handles everything from Tau Auxiliaries to the holiest bionic commandos, the codex is Imperium and therefore constantly updated, and they have a great number of options.

Cons: More expensive than most, requires a lot of time put into the army, and due to its powerfulness there's a lot of anti-guard lists at current.

Do you like tanks? I mean a lot of tanks. Big tanks. Tanks that make the opponent rage.

If so, IG may be for you.

Pros
Tanks for relatively low point cost
5pt per model infantry
Straken
Creed/Kell
Flexibility
Ability to blob squads
Dont give a damn about power weapons
Outnumber most enemy armies

Cons
Tanks cost quite a bit [especially with how many the average mech user needs]
Squishy infantry (not as squishy as Orks, in terms of armor)
Many, many infantry models (lots of painting)
Transporting all those tanks and infantry is a pain sometimes

I don't play Guard, but from the other side of the table, lining up against them, they're still a blast to play with. They've got a little something for fighting just about everyone, they fight like men (power armor is for those whose faith in the Emperor's protection is lacking) and they have enough tanks to guarantee that i'll be able to pull off at least one ill conceived ramming attempt per game, and if i'm lucky, another brilliant one.

As fun or moreso than anyone else (excepting Orks of course), and Psychic choir is a god damned party.

Hydra Flak Tank, enough said. Holy shit that tank is crazy.

Also, please don't start IG. Don't start any Marine anything. Start Xeno something, anything Xeno.

Most local game stores right now are like X amount of blood angels, a few guard SW and ultra , x amount of other Marines, and like 1 Tyranid and maybe Necron. Play Xeno.

If you build a halfway decent IG list people will just bitch at you anyway and yell LEAFBLOWER in your face constantly.
