    Who Can Stand Against Me????

    I play a 2000 pt + Armored company (YES IT IS tournament legal, i checked with the techs at GW) and have yet to come up against a truly tough opponent. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for me to even out the battles. I have several friends who play SM and a few of the other races. Also if anyone is in the chicagoland area and has another Armored co and would like to duke it out in some long range fighting drop me a post. Thanks

    I don't know Cothis, what about changing around your list to make it harder to win with. You will get better battles and a sense of achievement when you actually win. I am no expert on IG but I am sure you could think of something.

    From what i've read here Armoured Companies are describes as powerful but vunerable. If anyone knew they would be up against armoured company they would fill up their armies with lascannons and meltaguns.

    But then again, i don't have any real experience against AC, never having played one. So i can only say what i've heard others say.

    Your opponents aren't tough because their lists aren't full of S8 AP3 ordinance weapons.

    If somebody built a proper list specifically to take out armored companies, you will cry as to how fast your tanks die.

    Try playing a Deathwing player when you can.

    Generally an army made of Landraiders and Terminators owns AC in my experience. Unless you change your list to anti-deathwing...but that defeats the point.

    I guess

    Well i know that its easy to defeat an armored co when you know its coming, im not stupid. But is there some way that i could balance it for tournaments? Just because the turny organizer says "there might be an armored co" doesnt mean you can waste your points on anti tank weapons. I want an advantage i can give an opponent who doesnt know that he is facing 6 leman russes and 2 basilisks in his next game.

    Raider borne Dark Eldar blow Armored Companies to bits. They are too fast to get a bead on, and their guns are esspecially potent against front armor 14. In a 1500 pt game, I tend to have nine or ten Dark Lances mounted on Raiders/Ravagers and four to six carried by infantry. Due to DE high BS, they'll carve through half your army in one turn.

    Then stop playing armoured company if you are getting bored of winning, simple as.

    A Imperial Gaurd all infantry army will give you a run for your money. So many targets and lots of anti tank weapons, even in balanced lists.


    If you want to make your list weaker, put in some hellhounds and sentinels in place of your Lemans. That gives you less Av14 and some easy to destroy targets for your enemy.
    However if you play those units right, they may work better than that Leman.

    Try fighting a Tau player who has loads of Crisis suits in deep strike with Armour-busting guns, and 3 Heavy Support Choices mounted up each with 3 Broadsides. And just for them throw in 4 squads of 6 Fire Warriors to do some markerlighting for the Broadsides.

    If you can beat 9 twin Linked Railguns hitting on a 2+, as well as 9 or so Fusion Guns (basically meltaguns) up your arse then you really are the greatest general of all time.

    Playing Tau with an Armoured Company aint pretty.

    Just out of Interest, what do you have in your armoured company?
