    armored company

    i've been considering playing armored company as my next army but, i have a few questions on some of the rules. thanks

    first question:
    the HQ tank entry says this:
    Teh Company Commander, and any commissar assigned to the detachment will ride into battle mound in one of the following.
    my question is, does this mean that for each HQ choise you can get multiple tanks (ones for the commissars) despite the fact that it says unit size 1 vehicle? or is is that only one tank (of the two posible HQ) has a commissar, and the other the commander [this being purely fluffly information]

    secound question:
    which rules do i use, the ones in IA1 or the rules in GW pdf?

    third question:
    in the rules for crush and Grind it says:
    the first unit tank shocked in a turn by a tank with this doctrine ...
    does this mean that only one tank a turn can do this, or that each tank can only do this once a turn?

    waiting for the sunrise!

    Single tank.

    The .pdf, in my opinion.

    1. has been answered
    2. If you can get the IA rules use them the pdf version is a bit rubbish really (has no doctrines) and IA did make the rule soo...
    3. it means that that tank can only do it once in that turn and it will be the first unit it does it too. If several tanks have the doctrine then they can all use it in the same turn.

    I'm almost 100% positive that I have the pdf version from the GW site (since I had to download the tanks list and the actual army list with rules, etc.) .. and it does, indeed, have the Doctrines included.

    it has the docterines
    but they differ in everything else
    points
    stats
    what they can take- very confusing

    i feel that forge world is a better sorce, but perhaps not....

    As I understand the IA list is OCO (Opponent Consent Only) whereas the .PDF is recognized as legal. Am I wrong?
    Don't bother having anything more than meaningless small talk on this forum, the moderators won't allow it

    Hi

    My understanding of it is the same as yours.

    Popular belief is that the IA list is better than AC - but not by much.

    However, the AC list is far far more widely used than the IA list.

    cheers!

    This depends. It wasn't in Canada's Confict Tourneys, which is a shame.
