Is the Imperial Guard Really a Push Button Win Army?

I finally got to play a tournament and won 1st place! It was my first tournament since May. I haven't used the Praetorians in a tournament in while, as I have been using Space Wolves. I haven't shot that much in quite a long time. The list I brought isn't a heavy mech list. It's more of a hybrid list specializing in breaking mech.
All three games went extremely well for me and managed 3 massacres. I seized intiative twice and one opponent elected to give me first turn. My dice were hot and my opponents were having average die rolls at best. I faced a Space Wolf Footwing army, An Abbaddon/Lash army, and a BA Dread/Lasplas army.



I'm really stoked to be able to get some tournament play in. Winning yesterday was just great way to come back to the local tournament scene. Next week, a bunch of us(about 15-20) are migrating north to Grapevine Tx for a 50 man tournament. Hopefully, my luck will hold or atleast the IG win button will still function.
Some one said, in a not so sportsman like way "It's so easy a cave man could do it." Are IG really that OP? Is it really a push button instant win army? What do you think?
Go Roll Some Dice!!!

First of all, congratulations for the win. Secondly, I think that IG is a very strong army but you must be a competent enough general to field them successfully. And of course luck also plays a major role.

And no army is autowin.

Yeah, there are a lot of hard decisions you have to make John... like whether to roll with your left hand or your right. Which color scatter die you want to use. Whether to use the cloudy style template or the clear.

Lots of thought involved. :)

That's your special move :) Like a Sho-ryu-ken.

It's no more push button than creating the Uber-Choppy Blob O' Doom and rushing it forward.
