So they are allowing Armoured Company in this years 'Ard Boyz. I wonder how they are going to get around the "no scoring units" thing that plagues AC. IF they make a special rule, that would also help Ravenwing players...

What is your take on this, and are you planning on playing in this year's event?

Troops are scoring units + Leman Russ is a troop choice in the AC list = Leman Russ tanks are scoring units?

Non vehicle troops are scoring...

You'll have to play for Wipeout or a draw, which is actually quite fluffy. Tank companies don't hold objectives, they blow up all the bad guys so they can't hold objectives :p

Surely Bikes are the scoring unit for Ravenwing, and Armoured Fist are the scoring unit for Armoured Company?

Armoured fist units are mechanised infantry. Armoured companies are made of tanks only (or mostly).

And Armoured Fist units are Fast Attack choices in the AC list

If all troops were scoring I'd be very happy. I've got two deff dredd troops.

Ardboys fantasy had some interesting scenarios so who knows what the 40k ones will be like.

With 5th edition vehicles are tougher so maybe no scoring units is the armored companies drawback.

Not sure what I'm playing for Ardboys yet need to get more 5th edition games under my belt.

gw website

i remember the last 40k ard boyz. golden tickets..... ig vs nids... never lasted

then the next round was that the battle already started and your models could be placed anywhere with in 6 inches... guard vs chaos... not very good.

next round regular destroy them all.... guard vs necrons.... not very good either


well at least i had fun and won best sportsmanship at the cleveland tn one.

btw pray you avoid the two old gamers who spend 40 mins whining about how a tank shock works.

however due to my distaste of the tournament playing fields i will be stepping out this time
