Default Chapter Approved?

My friend let me borrow his Chapter Approved 2004 and I have been interested in starting an Armored Company using the rules featured in this book. Where can I buy this book? Also, it says it is an annual, so would I find the armored company rules in the 2005 or later books?

There was a chapter approuved for 2001, 2003 and 2004 I believe. The only place to find them now is on Ebay, used book website but sometimes you get lucky and find them in your local gaming store.

You can actually find the rules on the Internet:

http://uk.games-workshop.com/imperia...edcompanies/1/

There you should find everything you need to crush the enemies of the Emperor with his Mighty, Armored Fist (tm).

Cheers,

IIRC, Forgeworlds IA:1 also contains a set of rules for armored company. I have no idea how similar it is to other variants though.

I'd be real careful though, starting an army like that. I seriously doubt it will still be a viable list for much longer (if it still is). I think it may have been removed from the tournament rosters.

Of course, in a friendly game of mutual agreement, or an apocalypse game anything goes.

Well I know for a fact its no longer Tourney legal, but the only worry I have is if it would even be logical to play an army like this once 5th edition comes out.

Want about Citadel Journal? Do they still print that or not? I keep searching but find nothing.

The Citadel Journal, in its latest incarnation, has been out of print for many years. It ran for 50 issues.

Make sure to play it right. I played against an Armored Armored Company and I never will again.

I struggled through the whole game trying to take out his tanks, eventually loosing. He managed to Stun/Shake my Hammerheads, my Crisis Suits coudn't take the front armor and got blasted when I tried to get them in the side, and my fire warriors were worthless. It was the worst game I had ever played.

I 'played' the game as best I could, but i was slaughtered. Some time after the game, I was able to get a hold of a copy of the book. He ignored the required rule of "Lucky Glancing Hit" which gives any ranged weapon a possibility of damaging a tank.

I'm 99% sure that its no longer Tourney Legal, and if you field it, know the rules. And definetly get your opponents consent, because it is a challenging/horrible list to play against.

Actually you're thinking of the original incarnation of the armoured company rules. The lucky glancing hit rule was removed in their second edition basically, the link that was posted earlier in here. Check it out, its a good read.

I have to say facing armoured company is tough, they're quite hard, with lots of firepower, just try to outmanuever them and win it on objectives.
Also, as has been mentioned, I don't think its a list thats allowed in any tournies, even in Canada, where we still let the 13th Company roam free!
