Default Can we still field Imperial Tanks?

Hi. I field a 3500 Point khorne army but i only have 1 tank-a defiler. Anyway the other day i was thinking I could do with some more tanks for added firepower in the form of tanks and was flicking through the CSM codex when i thought what about an Imperial tank. Different people that i asked said different things . So i was just wondering what you guys thought? Thanks alot.

Nothin'. At least, nothing that isn't in the Codex. We get Rhinos, Predators, Land Raiders, and Vindicators, and at the moment, those are all the tanks we can field.

I was wondering about that Vindicator, though. It's a new addition to the roster, previously only Iron Warriors could use them. It looks rather enticing for the fact that it can blow some exceptionally massive holes in things. I'm thinking of getting one.

As for a Khornate army, what'd be 'fluffy' is to stick with Rhinos for troop transports, and maybe in larger games a Land Raider to cart around any Terminators. I can't see them fancying the lobbing of ordnance much over getting up close and personal (though the aforementioned Vindicator does come close).

One note, though: You are obliged, by the edicts of the Blood God, to utilize the ENTIRE vehicle accessories sprue in assembling these things. If you can't potentially lacerate yourself upon picking up the model, Khorne will not be impressed.

OK Thank very much. I was Just a bit confused by what somebody said. It is a shame thought that we cant field Crusaders and stuff i mean we are effectively spacemarines after all

No, unfortunately we can't - in a standard game anyway. I admit I'm using a modified Land Raider Crusader for my Slaanesh Terminators (with somic weaponry!), but it is actually a completely new, house-ruled unit.
Of course, in Apocalypse you can use whatever bloody thing you wanted, including Carnifexes and Monoliths, if you can fluffily justify their use in your army.
