While the mighty Baneblade is my favourite tank, the Demolisher is my favourite for use on the tabletop. The Leman Russ is a versatile and well protected tank, but the Demolisher is just better in every respect - Superior armour, superior sponson options, superior firepower; only slightly increased cost. The Demolisher is a fabulous all-rounder with many evil purposes.

The Vanquisher is mine. Those anti-tank rounds are Nasty! Especially when combined with BS4.

Got to go with the standard leman russ. 5" blast that instance kills marines and can hit almost anything on the table. Yeah I love the Russ ^-^

I would agree that the demolisher is good to but I never use it and you may have 13 armor on the side but you have to advance to attack with your main gun so you will get attacked on the sides and there is a lot more that can hurt av 13 than av 14

Personally My favorite vehicle is the Sentinel... but its not really a Tank. So Hellhound, or hell hammer for the bigger bang (or burn in this case). Nothing strips your enemy of their cover like like the pure essence of flame.

I voted for the Chim, being very multipurpose as either a cheap combat vehicle rolling around and dakking with heavy bolters or alternately a trans full of guys who can still shoot as they move into position. I like the ultra-modified chim with heavy flamers, track guards, smoke, extra armor, and stuffed with a squad with yet another flamer or maybe melta. It's cool to just stay in the chim with them too. I like that the squad inside can still fight out of tophatch and side guns - very unique to the chim, makes it stand out among fighting transports.

The Exterminator! Its cheap, can put out a god awful amount of anti infantry firepower, is also good against AV 10+11 (it can hurt AV13), and can still fire all its weapons on the move.
