Default Morgan First - 'Dust Devils' [ 1750pt Armoured Company]

Well, I don't want to publish my Gailai Scimitars drop troop list till I have the fluff finished, and I was to lazy to dig out the AB rules, which are much more complex anyway... so out of sheer boredom, I made an AC list:

HQ:
Command Tank - Leman Russ Vanquisher w/ Lascannon, Heavy Bolters, Extra Armour, Camo Netting
306pts

Elites:
Tank Ace - Destroyer Tank Hunter w/ Extra Armour, Pintle Heavy Stubber, Camo Netting
253pts

Tank Ace - Leman Russ Conqueror w/ Lascannon, Camo Netting
226pts

Troops:
Leman Russ w/ Heavy Bolter, Heavy Flamers, Extra Armour, Camo Netting
161pts

Leman Russ w/ Heavy Bolter, Heavy Flamers, Extra Armour, Camo Netting
161pts

Leman Russ Exterminator w/ Lascannon, Heavy Bolters, Camo Netting
146pts

Leman Russ Conqueror w/ Heavy Bolter, Heavy Bolters, Camo Netting
161pts

Fast Attack:
Salamander Scout Vehicle w/Camo Netting
101pts

Heavy Support:
Demolisher w/ Heavy Bolter, Plasma Cannons, Extra Armour, Camo Netting
151pts

Griffon Mortar w/ Seige Shells, Camo Netting
81pts

Thoughts?

make the exterminator HQ not the vanquisher. he's already a target as it is, making him be worth more points than necessary can se him blowing up first turn.

not a fan of the heavy flamers, better of with something less short ranged.

get rid of the heavy stubber on the destroyer. he wont use it, trust me. give it to the exterminator or conquerors that you put on elite.

are you really going to be using seige shells on your griffon?

whats with all the camo netting. waste of points if you ask me.

It's not as if you can get an extra tank with the points 10 camo nettings cost. But... perhaps ditch them and get a couple of more extra armours.

Camo nettings aren't that much. What sort of mysterious heretical tome of a list are you reading?

I'm wondering that too - it's only a point a tank...

I was just playing around with the idea of a slightly more fluff-oriented than effective army... I'll drop the camo for extra armour on two tanks... and as for the Command tank... switch it with the Tank Ace Conqueror? They all still get the BS bonus, but it makes the Vanquisher a slightly less obvious target.

Im by no means a veteran with my Armored Company but I usually do pretty well by living by one rule. Anything with bs3 gets a tank with ordnance and anything with bs4 gets a to hit weapon. That and I try to follow General Goyder's (over at 40kOnline) advice to put bolter sponsoons on everything with the exception of my vanquisher and the nicer options on my demolishers. Id advice reading up on his AC tacticas over at 40kOnline.com as they are pretty good guides to AC.

The Exterminator is the best HQ I've found since it's so cheap and you don't give up nearly as many VP's to a lucky lascannon shot.

Wargamer will probably give you some advice too
