My group field a lot of Armoured Battlegroup and Armoured Company lists and they can work quite well, but they either win big or get wiped off the board depending on the lists faced. One difference is that they aren't squadroned and count as Troops which obviously helps a lot..but they aren't a standard 40K type of list.

I can build a competitive list all the way to 3K and not squadron any Russes at all, but I'd never take 3..the firepower is wasted on a single target, too easy to lose all 3 against specialised anti-tank units like Fire Dragons etc., so 2 would be my limit.

@op...give the CCS and Vets SW's because the Vets especially are wasted without them really. I don't think I've ever seen footslogging Vets as they are made to be transported, especially in Chimeras because of the 5 firepoints, or in Valkyries and used as an alphastrike- type unit.

Stick to max of 2 Russes and use the free-up points for other units..whatever you fancy really.

Dead right KoC..if you're squadroning Russes it's best to use the 'cheap' ones, so LRBT's, cheap Demo w/ a Hull HF, but never take 2 Executioners as the cost just blows out, and a single Exey with Plasma Sponsons is almost as good as 2 sponsonless Exey's but 150 pts cheaper..no contest really.
