Hey There. I am new to this site and new to the Warhammer 40k table top game. I am thinking about doing an armoured company army list because, well...tanks rock!! I have an army list and i was wondering if you guys could give me a few pointers and some advice, i need it. Thnx and i hope to hear what you think of it.
HQ: Command Tank- Leman Russ Vanquisher (**Can someone please tell me the stats of the Vanquisher Cannon**)
Elites: 2 Tank Aces- Leman Russ Conquerors
Troops: 4 Leman Russ Battle Tanks
2 Leman Russ Exterminators
Thats what i got so far so I hope it isnt to bad for a newbie. Please tell me what you think. Thnx.
I'll do you one better: Warhammer 40,000 - Imperial Guard
The PDF in that link is the "official" Armoured Company list. It has all the stats, though you may not be able to use your army all the time.
You may however want to put this "list" into the list section of the forum.
The general advice many give is to keep your HQs and Elites cheap: meaning put Exterminators there. Mainly because people will target your HQ and Elites because they pose a greater threat, so you reduce the points your opponent gains with the loss. Or he ignores them, allowing you to use them to good effect.
Conquerors are generally held to be the worst Leman Russ variant, though many love its looks. It's not that it sucks, it's just that it lacks the range that many LRs have for granted. I like the tank myself, useful in mobile lists as spearheads. But then their Conqueror cannon usually makes them ill-prepared to handle enemy armour. So spear-heading anti-infantry tank... might as well take an Exterminator.
Leman Russ tanks are always a good choice.
I wouldn't start off as Armoured Company. Perhaps try mech grenadier first? get a feel for IG. You may find it hard to get opponents with AC as some people find them 'Cheesy'. I hate that word.
(A little off topic but maybe we shouls have an Armoured Company sticky?)
