I just figgured something out, Vanquisher with multi melta sponsons, lascannon and Pask That gives you the ultimate AT tank in the game! 2 Melta shots with +1 for being melta, +1 for crack shot! Vanquisher cannon with 1+ and lascannon with 1+
That esensially gives you 2x S10 multi meltas, 1x S10 lascannon, 1x S9 vanquisher cannon ;D and all at bs 4 ;D it sums up at 250pts, but what a tank!
I say, those chaps over there mean to kill us. How absolute rotters! Shall we have at them?

1. It's expensive as hell. You can put the points you spent on Pask and the Sponsons into something else, like a SW team with Meltas
2. If the enemy tanks are within 24in, it's either something like a Rhino or Trukk, which is a waste of a Multimelta shot, or they're heavy tanks, which means you probably left cover to hit them (which is bad), and you're probably going to be hitting his front armour, which means you won't do much anyway.
3. You just spent 30pts on Sponsons, which makes your tank a bigger target and harder to get in cover, instead of on Camo Netting, which keeps that 50pt investment in Pask alive.
It's a good idea in theory, but mediocre in practice. Just give him a Hull Lascannon and Camo Netting. Anything else is a waste.
Do not, I repeat, do not badmouth that rule! Anything that has words "lumbering" and "behemoth" in one sentence is super cool! And this has both! JK To be honest, it could have been better for us... But then again it has its virtues...
