Default 5 Leman Russ in 1 army

My older brother is starting a Imp Guard army and is wondering how many of his Leman Russ tanks he should use in one army ???

You are limited to 3 normal tanks. However, you can take chimeras as transports and hellhounds as fast attack, meaning you can have 6 tanks plus however many chimeras you can fit into your other choices. Armored company is a seperate list (look on the uk imperial guard GW page) that has its own varients of tanks and allows you to fill the whole list with them.

I'd love to run Armored Company, if it weren't for the fact that I'd get Cheese yelled at me when I ally 2 squads of Grey Knights Terminators to the mix lol

I only have one squad of 8, but I do the same thing.

I have 2 squads of 6, each with a single Psycannon and a single termie w/ Thunder Hammer and storm shield. One is lead by my Grand Master. (ohhhhh so bad ass!) They're more deadly than you'd believe.

As a rule, I say one Russ per 500 points.

I think armored companies should really only be used if the enemy is also playing whatever their racial equivalent of an armor company. A battle with an all-tank force versus a mixed force will be extremely awkward and one-sided (either for or against, depending on what kind of HW the other guy has - either he wont be able to hurt you much at all, or he'll completely destroy you). 1 Leman costs about 150-160 points if you aren't tricking it out, so squeezing 3 into an 'average' 1500 point army takes about a third of your points. They are good, but they are not all powerful. Mine rarely spend a turn not shaken, stunned, or losing their battlecannon. generally they are just soaking up a lot of fire. A 10 point melta gun can slay a 160 point tank pretty easily. My infantry does far more damage. I use max 2 lemans in 1250, 1 in a smaller army, and all 3 if I am playing my 'tourney' list at 1850.
