Default Tank company's

Are tank company's worth making or do they just take up to much space.

Armor all the way!

Deep-Striking units are the bane of the Armored Companies. Our ability to defend ourselvesis based on facing.

My favorite countermeasure to DS Terminators:



Destroyer Tank Hunter! Small DS Terminator teams all fit so nicely under its horrifyingly strong template.


And who leads?



Land Raiders tremble at the thunder of the Vanquisher's mighty AP shell.

With my Armored Company I either win big, or loose big. But always with glory.

Cool tanks, are they FW or conversion?
Armoured Companies look nice on the battlefield, although I would suggest taking a armoured fist squad to have a better chance of holding objectives and add a couple special and heavy weapons. Conveting tanks and painting them is a lot of fun if you use camo schemes or striking patterns. IG have the best tanks is the game, so its awsome when you field an army of them.
