Welcome to Librarium Online!
a mate of mine for some reason gave me a tomb stalker model
i was wondering if i could use the model in an actual army list since their are rules relating to it, ie wound, toughness
If its Forge World I think you need to be doing Apoc if its going to be a "tournament" type game, if its just a regular tourny or something, I doubt it, but could be wrong. In normal Apoc games though, yeah I would imagine you can use it, people use Titans and such and they are not in a "codex". If its just you and your friends playing a game in the living room or wherever, if they say its ok, its ok. I have let a buddy use a baneblade in a friendly game before, it didn't turn out to well for me, but meh. hah
in the new FW apoc 2 reloaded book, it tells you on each entry page whether it is approved for 40k or apoc. The pylon of course is approved for Apoc only, the stalker, however, is approved for 40k. Our store allows us to take 40k approved FW stuff to tourneys, as a way of saying "well you payed for your contemptor dreadnaught, why not use it" and etc etc." and also its not too tough to kill (almost like a vehicle)
TL;DR: Its ok for 40k, but only tourney ok if your store allows it.
I own a tomb stalker and yeah, 40k approved. It is a good unit, scares the feth out of anyone who comes up against it. However!!! It is, surprisingly, quite flimsy when facing heavy weapons. Bear in mind that its save is 3+ armour, not inv. I have seen it devastate units and I have seen it go down just as easily. The rules are vicious but due to copyright laws, can't be posted up. I highly recommend the FW imperial armour apocalypse edition with it in...
thanks for clearing that, i dont have any off the apoc books so i dont know if is or isnt, but thanks for clearing it up and my mates would probably allow me to use it, if not i have a nice centre piece
also archon, looks awesome, i cant wait to start painting mine, going to be gold, red and silver
No reason why they wouldn't. It is 40k approved and isn't overpowered. As I said earlier, get it into combat as early as possible to protect it from being shot to pieces.
Thanks :-) your scheme sounds awesome. Make sure you get some pics up.
