But still what? It is a perfectly applicable and viable option to take. I see no reason why he shouldn't do it.

If you look at the rest of his list he's already got plenty of anti tank in lascannons, vindicators and meltaguns.

The auto cannon could come in real handy.

I agree, I don't understand why there are tears....?

If it brings the point home anymore he doesn't have the points for it either.

A one word answer is not a viable argument. Nothing will be accomplished if you attempt to spell out your entire side of the story with a single word and an emoticon. It probably made sense in to you, but over the web, it makes absolutely no sense. I do want to hear what you have to say regarding this, but honestly, the way you are presenting your information isn't helping this thread at all.

@Svindler: I would, however, maybe elect to switch out the Razorbacks with Rhinos. But thats just me voicing my favoritism towards mechanized lists.
