The armour of the gods save can't be improved, but if the character is mounted on an elven steed with Ithilmar barding does he get an improved save or not?

First - I think armour of the Gods is "on foot only", so you can't put a character who is wearing it on a mount.
Second - No, if it states that the armour save can't be improved, you can't improve it. So if putting him on a steed would be legal, it would not improve the armour save.

Its a pointless question, because Armour of the Gods is foot models only.

Out of interest, you specifically quote that the rule says it can't be improved, so why would you then ask if it can be improved? I'm not asking to be an ass, I'm just curious why you thought it might actually be improvable...

I thought it couldn't be improved with a shield or handweapon and shield. But he barded steed wasn't really armour. Thats why I asked.

The armour of the gods can be improved, just not combined with any other armour...

The only way to improve it would then be to mount him. Which you can't.

By the way: I just loath power armoured elves...

Heh. Back in the day Space Marines were T3. And Power(ed) Armour was a 4+ save.
