A reasonable size battle is 1500 to 2000 points. To have a good selection
of troops to select an army from, you will need a about 3000 points
of troops. So that will 1 titan (555 points), a couple of squadrons of
aircraft (300 to 450 points), IG artillery (600 points) and the rest
in troops (1500 points). So that means you will need roughly ten
boxes of marines, twice as many for IG troops. If you going get IG you
must get hellhounds as well. I advise you to forget about Leman Russ and
Chrimeas. IG Support weapons attached to your infantry detachments are
better than Leman Russ, while using Chrimeas as troop transports is not
worth the expense.
