If my opponent attacks me with an "Armour Piercing" attack, do I half my Armour BEFORE or AFTER armour modifier? e.g. Angelus hits Crusader with Defender's Ward.

Halve before adding -- there's a list on page 33 of the Warmachine Prime rulebook that shows the sequence.

The basic rules of math are followed here - i.e. you do it in the order of operations:

1) Multiplication
2) Division (round up, except on movement)
3) Addition
4) Subtraction

You follow the order of operations on pg 33. Additionally, the armor piercing attack states that it halves base armor. Base armor is defined as the ARM stat listed on a models card, before any conditional increases from spells, shields, special rules, terrain, feats or any outside source.
