    Armor Types

    What are the other types of armor in use by the Imperium other than Terminator, Artificer, Power, and Carapace armor? Is there such thing as mesh? and Flakweave? Or am I making that up? If they exist which is stronger and how effective are they?

    IG get flakweave
    mesh armour i think is specific to guardians for eldar.
    in game terms they are the same strength .
    in fluff i think flak weave is pretty bulkier and gets in the way, the mesh is much lighter and easier to manuver in. but they still offer similar protection.
    they also use a mirror coating for some armour. and abalitive too.

    What exactly is ablative armor? I assume its weaker than Flak armor?

    it comes from inquisitor. abalitive armour is designed to chip off or break when it's struck, thus reducing the amount of damage taken from the shot or attack. as such, it falls apart as you attack it. however, lots of abaltive armour can take a while to destroy. it sorta weaker...but lots of it is good protection for a while.

    According to Inquisitor and Necromunda, Mesh armour is available in the Imperium, but it's rare, and it's probably only a crude copy of the eldar material.

    Also remember the different generations of power armour. Just because there's no difference in 40k doesn't mean there's no difference. In Inquisitor, I'd imagine Thunder or Iron armour can be represented with slightly different properties to Mk7.

    Same with carapace armour.. The game term covers everything from metal plate armour to high-tech body armour.
