either the HB, or MM. with the HB, you can handle a lot of infantry, but with the MM, the bigger enemies will drop like flies

Plasma Cannon as it is strengt seven blast with a longer range than the demolisher. Also Vehicles plasma doesn not blow up you stupid canolie

Yeah, Plasma Cannons don't 'blow up' they just overheat. Since vehicles can't be wounded through overheats, this isn't an issue

Personally I'd make it so you can switch the sponsons around - Heavy Bolters are much better against hordes then Plasma Cannons, and are tons cheaper!

My demo has multimeltas; I chose them because my demo wouldn't be hunkerin down to shoot long range, that is my basilisks job. I use the demo to spearhead assaults and counter attactks, because of the short range. The multis are great for any tanks that want to wreak havoc on my assault force, or special characters that will dominate in the obvious CC later.

The problem is every time you have a chance to shoot the multimelta you have the ability to shoot the demolisher cannon. I would always shoot the ordance

blast weapons are somewhat redundant in 4th ed. as they must be centered on a single model meaning an opponent with any sense whatsoever will just spread his formation a bit so id go with the MM as the damned big demol. on the turret can take out hordes in droves
