    1000 Armoured Company

    Just a very quick & dirty list for comment!

    The “fluff” is a fast moving armoured attack/counter-attack force – hence the conqueror/exterminator tanks which can fire & move, and the “blowtorch” boys of the Storm troopers for objective seizing and clearing out areas of cover that might be used by hostile footsloggers.

    Well that’s the theory anyway!

    HQ

    Vanquisher, Hull H/B, Extra Armour
    285pts

    Elite

    Conqueror, Hull H/B, Sponson H/B, Extra Armour
    230pts

    10 x Storm troopers including Sergeant and 2 x Flamers
    Chimera, Heavy Flamer, Hull Flamer, Extra Armour, Smoke
    205pts

    Troops

    Exterminator, Hull H/B, Sponson H/B, Extra Armour
    140pts

    Exterminator, Hull H/B, Sponson H/B, Extra Armour
    140pts

    Total 1,000pts

    Ideally I’d like to upgrade the ST Sergeant to a veteran and give the Vanquisher Sponson H/B – I wonder whether all that extra armour is worth it?

    NO way around it

    I think that given the number of vehicles that you are able to field Extra Armour is a sound investment. You are presenting a very small number of targets to your opponent and so they need to be as resilient as possible or your armour may suddenly become a wreck company before you can say "Is it my turn now?"

    I like the list though. Nothing too crazy and every vehicle is a dangerous platform in its own right.

    Nice looking list, an armoured company at 1000 should not have too many problems with racking up the wins. After all, no-one takes THAT much anti-tank in a small game.


    Which brings me to my only gripe about said list. Apart form the Vanquisher I see no AT. Now the Twin autocannons on the Exterminators can handle (and by handle I mean rape sideways with a trouser press) light armour but if you run into something heavy (Monolith, Land Raider etc) and they nail your Vanquisher then you should be a bit worried.

    Although it is a minor concern at this points level.

    Good point - I wonder then if I wouldn't do better to take Hull H/B and a Turret H/B or Multilaser on the Chimera so it can get with the firing sooner rather than later?

    Which brings me to my only gripe about said list. Apart form the Vanquisher I see no AT.
    Hmm good point. I don't really feel hull L/C are the way to go they'd negate the "fluff" of fast movement and everyone would have to stop to fire.

    I suppose replacing the ST with an AF squad and L/C would be an option - but the ST are more durable, and murphy's law says the AF squad will be in the wrong place anyway if I deploy them and they can't fire mounted.

    Hmmmm!!

    IDEA!

    Hunter killer missiles for AT.

    Okay, they are only one shot, but grab one per tank and maybe one for the chimera for 50pts the lot and that is five krak missiles in the first turn to nonce up any opposing armour.

    Trouble is that would put me over limit on points and what to drop - extra armour or troopers?

    I did think of dropping two ST and taking vet sgt with p/sword & melta bomb, then change Chimera to Turret Autocannon and Hull H/B??

    Change the stormtroopers to an AF squad and dont give them a heavy weapon.

    They wont be as good at toasty fun, but are cheaper and are still some warm bodies in something quick to claim objectives. Possibly give their chimera a pintle mounted heavy stubber for added anti-infantry pain.

    Hell, or just lose a few stormtroopers from the squad and take a Hunter-Killer missile for each one dropped.


    Or dont bother and try it out as is, its not like I have ever used an armoured company on the table so it might be best to take my advice with a pinch (by pinch I mean bucketfull) of salt. As I said before, heavy armour is usually a minor concern at 1000 points.

    And yes I can see the irony of saying "you dont see many heavy tanks" when talking about an armoured company.

    OK How's abou this then:




    Doctrines

    Leman Russ Vanquisher
    Leman Russ Conqueror
    Leman Russ Exterminator


    HQ

    Leman Russ Vanquisher, Hull H/Bolter, Extra Armour
    285pts



    ELITES

    Leman Russ Conqueror, Hull H/Bolter, Sponson H/Bolters, Extra Armour
    230pts



    FAST ATTACK

    Armoured Fist Squad
    Veteran Sergeant, Boltpistol & CCW, 1 x M/L, 1 x G/L, 7 Troopers with lasguns, frag grenades
    Chimera, Autocannon, Hull H/Bolter, Extra Armour
    195pts



    TROOPS

    Leman Russ Exterminator, Hull H/Bolter, Sponson H/Bolters, Extra Armour
    140pts

    Leman Russ Exterminator, Hull H/Bolter, Sponson H/Bolters, Extra Armour
    140pts


    Total 990pts


    The AF squad with M/L gives me a bit of added AT and still fits the fluff while the A/C armed Chimera can enagae from further out so all my vehicles can fire, as opposed to needing to get close with the heavy flamer.

    The 10pts left over either:

    Sponson H/B for the Vanquisher

    Upgrade AF Squad frags to krak

    Krak Missile for the Conqueror (benefits from BS4)

    Which do you reckon?

    Id drop the frags from the squad. You dont want to be using them to assault if they are your only infantry! thatd give you another 10 points. Id go for either a krak for the conqueror with the points or even a pintle stormbolter on the exterminator or chimera. IF you get rid of the frags the same choice applies!

    Seems to be a great list though

    hope that helps

    Hmm it's always those last few points that cause the fiddle

    If only it had a commander to match
