If you are playing Apoc, have an armoured company decide to add a baneblade or 2, would you be allowed to give the baneblade things like ace gunners? How about tank ace Baneblades? That one would kick ars, all the baneblade weapons firing at BS4 and re-rolling 1s.
what do you call a lasgun with a laser sight?
I was actually wondering about something similar enough that I don't mind mentioning it in here - the incompatibility of Datasheets and AC Doctrines.
Datasheets claim that the tanks have to be 'chosen from Codex Imperial Guard', but Armoured Companies use a seperate list.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how these are compatible?
There's also the fact that you don't have to use a Tank Commander and throw away points purely for balance (not that Apocalypse is about balance really), which seems a bit odd.
I think it all depends on how cooperative your opponent is really, if they don't mind you using doctrines with your Baneblades then fair enough, however some may argue that they should cost a bit more when being used by a super heavy tank to represent the improved benefit they will have!
The Baneblade isn't an option in any of the Armoured Company lists, it being Apocalypse or Imperial Armour, so I'm going to have to say no. Besides, Armoured Company doctrines on that Behemoth would probably make it such a monster on the battlefield that it just wouldn't be fun playing against it.
Strictly by the rules, no.
It wouldn't be much different than using a demonically possessed Falcon (Not that the things aren't already). However, this is Apocalypse, so I'm of two minds:
1) Why be beardy? This is for fun!
2) There are barely any rules limitations anyway, so why not just work things out with your opponent and come up with a proper cost for a BS4 rolling fortress.

I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
If you really want bs4 baneblade, you can use Maximillium(sp?) special Baneblade in Imperial Armour. It is just a baneblade that drive by Maximillium and his crew with benefit of bs4 and able to rerolls scatter dice.
I went to an apocalypse battle last weekend (16k points either side good vs evil) I took my Armoured company with doctrines and the baneblade unaltered to avoid annoying anyone.
Incidentally, the baneblade got taken out by 3 lictors who came in as reserves just behind it using the flank march reserves thing.... annoyed the hell out of me!

Been here nearly 10 years and still haven't managed 500 posts.
Where taling about Apco., a place where anything goes so Im sure if you paid the points that it would fly just as long as you told everyone that was playing before hand what you were doing. If not then dont bitch about it your friends and just have fun, remeber the look on their faces when you drop a 10'' template will be priceless whether you're rerolling one or not.
