Default Armored Company Is Cheezy

Well i was just thinking of all the diversie armies out there how the new nids are gonna have like 7 monsterous in 1 army ect. then i thought the cheeziest army is the damn armoured company.

1. Its nothing but tanks how retarded is that to fight any other army that uses more than 2 of the same thing is cheezy but now you can have an entire army of tanks.
2. How much fun is it to try to blow up 10 tanks? Really i've only played armoured company twice but i was in a damn good mood cuz i had the sucker owned.
3. Really again how much fun was it to blow up 10 tanks in a row?
4. Personally i'ed rather play a real army over armoured company anyday.

Not sure about those armoured company people out there who like using nothing but 15 tanks but wtf, serriously wtf......

I don't think it is all that beardy, and i don't find them boring to play against.

Ive had at least 15 games against AC armies and haven't lost to them (me using standard no geared lists) so they aren't that bad at all. They totally come apart on some boards, they also usually get slaughtered by armies that can get into combat with them very quickly. I don't think the perform well on small gaming tables.

Still it isn't just tanks, pretty much all AC armies will include some mechanised infantry to compensate for the weaknesses i have stated above, there are also walkers (sentinals) etc.

The Armoured Battlegroup army lists also allows for things such as cyyclops, navy units. Storm troopers mounted in valkyries etc.

Instead of wasting your time thinking about what is or is not cheesy, how about you focus on painting, converting, and playing 40K with your friends. Having a good time is what 40K is about, not thinking about cheese.

If more then two of anything is cheesy, then why do the GW designers allow almost every army in existanc to take three of almost anything? Are you so much smarter then they are? Have you played for so much longer then they have?

I play Armored Company, and I have played against armored company. Its a lot of fun to play with, and its a lot of fun to play against. If you are unable to have fun with armored company, then it is because you choose not to have fun. I'm sorry, but I cannot make you choose to have fun, only you can.

Armored Company is a real army, or else, why would they allow it at tournaments?

The problem is your attitude, not Armored companies.

Don't tell me that you fell for the MTV lie?
The MTV lie is that people who rebel against tradition are thnking for themselves, while those who follow tradition are just sheep who do not think.
It is, of course, completely untrue. The decision to follow tradition is just as much an exercize of free will as is the decision to depart from it.

Well Armoured Companies are a bit of an odd ball list, it is after made up of stuff with no leadership and no wounds for the most part. I have found that they unravel quite easily actually. I think the point of "cheesiness" many players highlight is the high amount of Ordnance weapons, the point is there are always counters to this.

The best part of fighting Armoured Company is once you get close and tear through them and see the look on your opponents face. The best part is playing those people who park their tanks on their own board edge and sit back and shoot, only for my wolf scouts or deep stiking stormtroopers to rock up and hose them with plasma.

The AC is good at killing things.

But good luck trying to do another kind of mission.

And with most of the tank rules and the way people chance their list based on who they play, the AC is more then beatable.

Armoured Companies are like Harlequins; they hit hard, but don't take casualties well.

I was a Space Marine player long ago, but left the GW world when it was canceled. On a whim last year I picked up a White Dwarf and, lo and behold, I could play the new 40k with all tanks! Memories of clinking treads a thousand worlds away flooded back, and I was sold.

So now I can play with bigger model tanks. Still new to the game, and I fail more often than triumph, but I have a great time.


p.s: Bring back my beloved IG Vindicators!
