Could someone please bring me up to speed on imperial armor? My friend keeps going on and on about how good of a HQ choice these command rhinos are, but I don't think they are tourney / GW legal. Does anyone know the "real" answer? Thanks in advance.
The "real" answer is to ask the tournament organiser what if Forgeworld is allowed.
I know at least one of the books says the IA is legal, but it ultimatley boils down to your oponnents/tourney organizers to say what is legal.

okay, what about grand tournaments? Usually the most recent year's GT rules are pretty much standard around most clubs.
Grand Tournaments usually post their own tournament rules and they do not always get carried over to other tournaments. Usually the painting and basing rules are stricter on top of unit restrictions.
As for Forgeworld models, use of them almost always requires basic opponent consent. But in tournaments the people running it make decisions based on what models you're trying to field: Things like extra armor and basic tank variants (different gun turrets etc.) and drop pods/dreds are usually fine. But vehicles with new or experimental rules usually don't fly, as they give an advantage to the person playing them, while the opponent has no concept of how the "special rules" work for the model. So rules get run by "word of mouth" and that's unfair.
Also, if they do allow the model, you're required to HAVE the Imperial Armor book that refers to it.
If you're friends are trying to use them against you and you don't want them to, SAY NO. It's not that hard.
There are no "REAL" rules for things like this. You simply have to decide whats FAIR.This isn't true either. Heck, the local GW here lets people play whatever games they want as long as :Usually the most recent year's GT rules are pretty much standard around most clubs.
1. They use GW or mostly GW models (this includes Forgeworld models)
2. Both/all players agree to it.
3. They don't get to loud while playing.
4. There's a 90 minute limit to the game.
They do it to free up tables fast. There's only 3 in the store.
