a nice simple one :


  • Armoured Task Force- A Techmarine, 0-3 Thunderfire Cannon units, 3-5 of any combination of Predators, Vindicators, and Whirlwinds, and the option of taking Antaro Chronus. As long as any of the vehicles is within 6" of the Techmarine or the Techmarine Gunners, they ignore Crew Shaken/Stunned, and said Techmarines gain a +1 bonus to their Blessings of the Omnissiah rolls when applied to any vehicle from the formation.


does this part (3-5 of any combination of Predators, Vindicators, and Whirlwinds,) mean you can take

1. relic preds
2. Vindicator tank destroyers
3. whirlwind scorpius

and they are types of the same tank

If the models aren't on the list they can't be taken as part of the Formation (barring an agreement with your opponent or TO approval). GW doesn't support FW stuff very well.

If you read it from the SM codex, it says Predator pg.163 - and the same for the rest. I interpret that as only the unit what is detailed on the page. So a standard SM codex unit.

It is specific. For example it lists the Vindicator Tank, whose datasheet is found in the SM Codex. It doesn't say Vindicator Tank Destroyers, who have a different datasheet found in a totally different publication. It is exactly what it says it is. To take another example from the Angel's Blade Formations, the Lucifer Armoured Task Force lists a requirement as 3-5 squadrons of Baal Predators or Predators in any combination; not just Predator tanks.

That being said there's nothing at all stopping you from playing the game however you want with your friends or discussing FW options with TOs at tournaments.
