Deffkoptas have toughness5 and a 4+ armour save, which means that they can handle alot more concentrated fire. Warbuggies are AV10 vehicles.

Deffkoptas can be equipted with buzz saws too, so if they fail to shoot a tank down, they can assault it with power weapons (S8 when charging)

Deffkoptas can make a scout move 24 inches before the start of the game OR outflank, so come in from the side, shoot then assault a tank. They may be more expensive in points, but they are piss good - mine outshot Tau once was hilarious.

I use my warbuggies with skorchas coz its automatic hit, so even the orks cant miss :P

Just my opinion but deffkoptas

Zambia pretty much nailed it on the head comparing the two.

Warbuggies are a tad cheaper for the same weapons but they are used differently. I use Deffkoptas for either that turn 1 shot on armor (scout move), or for outflanking. Buggies I tend to use in unison with my other vehicles, Trukks and such, to serve as a distraction or simply to take shots meant for the Trukks. If my Buggies kill anything it's a bonus.

Also, I believe Deffkopta buzzsaws are only S7 on the charge (S3 x 2 then +1S for furious charge).
Deffkoptas can also make better use of cover (although getting da blades tangled up in a tree ain't good), and can carry big bomms, which can be very entertaining against horde armies.

I would say Deffkoptas. Buggies work if you have a Mek in a nearby transport with the Kustom Force Field. Otherwise they are relying on being a low-priority target.

Don't forget that Deffkoptas are subject to Leadership tests, Warbuggies are not.

But also don't forget that if your Deffkoptas ever need to take a leadership test, you're using them wrong.

You can play them "right" and still be faced with enough fire to force you to take leadership tests. There are better ways of using them for sure but just because you're forced to test leadership doesn't mean you're using them wrong either.

My 1500 point all comers list has a pair of koptas, and they have worked out wonderfully. I am going to experiment and convert up a pair of skorchas buggies too, which will not be in the same list. The two units have vastly different roles though, and I don't think you can compare them. For tank hunting I think the koptas are the better choice, but with skorchas the buggies can toast those nasty elite units you don't want to fight in hand to hand.
