  Hey, good idea.
  would use chimera or rhino transports for SM, rhino or moles for Squats,
eldar?(would they even use them?), orcs-don't needs 'em
 add 50 pts for transports then i'd say there good to go
              as far as the too hit rolls, i'd say 5+ at best

> Unit type: Imperial Guard Combat (assault) Engineers

> Armour: None (Flak jackets)
> CAF: +2 (maybe +3, but that seems excessive)
> Weapons: A small selection of flame-throwers, satchel charges,

> Attack dice: 1 (maybe 2)
> Range: 20cm (a lot of this stuff doesn't have an extreme range.)
> To hit: 4+ (It's easier to hit a target with a flame-thrower as opposed

> Save modifier: -2 (anti-tank weaponary such as offensive grenades and
> satchel charges are quite nasty if well used.)
> Size of unit: 5 stands
> Morale: 3 (more highly motivated than ordinary guardsmen.)
> Break point: 3
> Cost of unit: 250
> Special Rules: Ignore cover modifiers. Engineer abilities (laying and
> clearing minefields, placing and defusing explosive charges, et cetera).
> Other notes: Could be modified to have transport provided with a dues
