Hey there, I am thinking of starting an armored company because I have a strange but for some, understandable, fetish for Guard Tanks. I will play at my local store and there is a good chance we will play in all sorts of terrain. Heres my list, PLEASE CRITIQUE IT!
Command Tank Leman Russ "Thunder Hell"
-improved comms (free)
For this expensive bugger I didn't want to give it too many extras that would up it's cost so I stayed basic. The improved comms will allow me to get my fast attack in faster, or so I have read.
Tank Ace Tank Destroyer "Words Revealed"
I chose a Tank Destroyer as my tank ace because I have always imagined tank aces riding in the tanks with most tank kills. I gave it ace gunners so I could reroll any 1's I get with this thing... hopefully they are worth it.
MBT (Main Battle Tank) Leman Russ Conqueror "Swift Glory"
-crush and grind
-search light (free)
I added a Conqueror to conter-balance my vehicle- oriented Kill the Pain. This fast tank has crush and grind so I don't go about to get killed too easily.
MBT Leman Russ "Kill the Pain"
-sponson plasma cannons
This is my only vehicle oriented tank out of my whole army. I gave it improved sponsons and plasma cannons because heavy bolters on this monster didn't seem right.
Hellhound "Emperor's Incinerating Light" (its a Hellhound, get it?)
This is in my army for the sole purpose that I got it a day before I wrote this list. I wanted something guard so when I got to my shop and to my horror they had no Chimeras or Leman Russes I got this hot tomato (get it? its a flame tank) and brought it home. While assembling it, I decided I hate metal pieces on plastic tanks, they stink to assemble. I kept this cheap so no one would point out that my buying disorder, that makes me buy something every time I go to a shop, caused me to field an expensive tank that does nothing.
Armored Fist Chimera "Death on Tracks"
soon to come: Squad Persei (in Chimera)
I still have to get a guard codex [(hopefully from my shop but if need be I will buy from online) I assembled this list using the online armored company rules] so until that point I will wait to assemble my guard squad. The chimera I have both track guard and extra armor so that if the opponent gets a crew stunned it will be degenerated and I will be able to move them. And if I am playing a particularly dumb opponent, they might think it will be transferred from immobilised to crew stunned (its supposed to be) and down to crew shaken. If you might notice it has a lot of bolter weaponry on it so I get more than a few shots off.

Conqueror is not worth it. Its more expensive than a regular leman russ and not as good. Go for either a regular russ or an exterminator. The command tank is the one that people like to use for a vanquisher.
what do you call a lasgun with a laser sight?
Just thought I'd mention that you have to spend at least as many points on doctrines for command and ace tanks for each MBT, this makes your whole list invalid (sorry but it's true)
