Default Using custom vehicles in an armoured company?

Hey guys. I will be recieving a sum of money soon (Some of my family have died, so wills and what not. Plus x-mas money...) So I will be purchasing many a tank for my Imperial guard! Hopefully enough to warrant there own company, to go along with my infantry.

Infantry- 82nd Volstran Kommodos
Tanks- 7th Volstran Dragons

When in heavy fighting the two units worked in close cooperation in order to survive, they became known as the Volstran Kommodo Dragons, or the Volstran Royals due to their defence of the Royal buildings.

Besides fluff, do you guys think it is okay to use custom vehicles in an armoured company? I will need my opponents permission, but that shouldn't ever be a problem (Friends and all)

Just so you know...

The anaconda
AV Front Side Rear
# 11 11 10

Transport capacity: 8 (Veterans and stormtroopers)
Weapons: Twin-linked multi-melta.

Points: 120

Still under going some heavy testing, though.

Thanks for your input!

I think you've kind of answered your own question here. Anything's ok so long as you have your opponent's permission...and you say that shouldn't ever be a problem. ???

As Tom points out it is down to your opponents ultimately, the vehicle seems okay - these are obviously very close to a SoB Immolator with Twin-Linked Multi Melta though, is that intentional? Is that your intention as opposed to say a Chimera chasis based vehicle?

It is very close to an immolator, as it is made from a rhino body (With added armour) and a plasticard turret) I might swap it out for a twin linked heavy bolter, bit it depends.

Yeah, guess I did answer the question :-\

Mods, lock if wanted.

getting your opponents permission is your biggest problem.

The point value seems a bit high as it is comparatively weak tank (armour, weapons, troop capacity) I would say around 100 points is the way to go.

That's what I was thinking as well, but in the house rules area people who bitching (Excuse my language) about 88-100 points and that it was over powered or something. I might as well just use the immolator rules or something similar...
