Default alright I know what I want, how do I get it

I want to run armored company, but I want 2 armored fist squads and a heavy weapons section. Oh, and I also want to run 2 hellhounds and 3 sentinels. This on top of 5 tanks (1 HQ, 1 Ace, and 3 troop tanks).

ideas anyone? Also do I have to have consent from my opponant to run Armored company?

ok get the starter set, there youve got the men for your 2 armoured fist squads and your heavy weapons section and your first tank. then you'd need to buy the rest separate. try ebay if you like, but definetly buy them new if you ahve the moeny.

no you dont need your opponents consent since armoured companies are chapter approved.(i think im not sure, i play armoured battalion)

For the Command, just get some cool bitz and a cool commander. A standard LR will do find, and you can upgrade it to a Conqueror or Vanquisher quite easily.

2 more boxed sets will be great for the LRs.

Battleforce is a must.

3 sentinels and the 3 Sentinels will have to be bought seperately, but you will only be able to take 3 Fast Attack, so...
Sentinels, Hellhound, Armored Fist
Sentinels, AF, AF
AF, AF, HH

There are no rules for Heavey weapons. Perhaps a them mounted in a Chimera would look handsome as a Heavey Support?

Good Luck!

if you want to field all that your going to ahve to switch to armoured batallion army list, its in IAvol1. in their your sentinels count as fast attack, your armoured fists as troop and your hellhounds as heavy support.

Because Armored Company is so bad compared to Armored Battalion, here is a selection of both lists trying to fit in as much as you want. As you can see, Armored Battalion fullfils your requests much better.

Remember that Commisar Tanks are the same as Tank Aces, with the added bonus of being able to take a Leman Russ Executioner.

I lent IA1 to a friend, come tommorow I will have the book back and a can give you a better sample list that uses what you want.

For now I will rely on what I can remember....

HQ
Leman Russ Command Tank (easily changed)

Armored Fist Command Section

ELITES
Squadron Command Leman Russ Tank

Armored Fist Command Section

Commisar Tank (a substitute for the Tank Ace)

TROOPS
Armored Fist Squad

Armored Fist Squad

Leman Russ

Leman Russ

FAST ATTACK
Sentinel Recon Section, 3 Sentinels (weaponry your decision)

HEAVY SUPPORT

Armored Fist Heavy Weapons Squad (weapons your decision)

Hellhound Siege Tank

Hellhound Siege Tank

and now for the chapter approved version...

HQ
Leman Russ Command Tank (easily changed)

ELITES
Tank Ace, Leman Russ (easily changed)

Tank Ace, Leman Russ (easily changed)

TROOPS
Leman Russ

Leman Russ

Leman Russ

FAST ATTACK
Sentinel Recon Section, 3 Sentinels

Recon Tank, Hellhound

Armored Fist Squad

Well here is what I have:

3 squads of infantry
1 command section
2 LR tanks
1 sentinel
3 heavy weapons sections

I'm thinking I can go vanilla IG and take mechanized to get what I want, or just have the infantry slog behind the LR rather than mech.

Perhaps this:

HQ
SHO + anti tank + seninel sqd + mortars

Elites
nada

troops
1 armored fist
1 JO + 2 sqds

Fast
2 hellhounds
1 sentinel sqd

Heavy
3 LR tanks

Very WWII feel

I'm trying not to buy and build 12 armored vehicles and walkers...What do you think?
