I was wondering if only armored companies can use tanks such as griffons and salamanders or can regular guard armies use them too?
Depemds on who you ask. if you look in the 4th edition imperial guard codex you'll see only the basic vehicles. some people I know take that as it's not in yer codex so you can't use it. Like doctrines from armoured company can only be used in armoured company. or like only stormtroopers, techpriests and armoured fist squads can be taken by armoured company ANd besides that MUST be in a chimera.
the old IG codex listed a lot of the armoured company vehicles
salamander scout (the only real "fast" 24inch movement in imperial guard)
these two would be in fast attack choice for regular guard?
all the others would be under heavy support since they're variants of leman russ hull.
i play armoured company and regular imperial guard. i haven't mixed armoured company specific vehicles into regular IG yet.
All the vehciles in an armored company list are in the Imperial Armor books from Forge World. You can use them with your opponents consent. I've never had an opponint not let me use them. The only time I couldn't was in tornaments.
