Default 750pt cheese?

okay would it be terribly unfair for me to take 2 tanks in a 750pt game, or even effective?

It depends against whom you are fighting.

Tourny = Fair, but might not be effective since you could spend points elsewhere.

friendly game = unfair

Even in a small game I'd go with more than one tank, even if one is a Piranha. 3 Suits sounds about right...

;D

Example of a characterful and effective 750pt list

Ionhead + Tracker + BCs = 125pts
Ionhead + Tracker + BCs = 250pts (in total)
10 FWs + Ui + Marker = 370pts
10 FWs + Ui + Marker = 490pts
Shas'o + Twin missile + Fusion + HW Tracker + HW controller and 1 shield drone = (130) total 620pts
2 Shas'ui + Twin missile + plasma = (126) = total 746pts

So you can squeeze a fair bit in.

You have Ion cannons, Plasma, Fusion, Missiles, Burst Cannons and Pulse weapons. A nice selection, if you include the fact that that's 2 tanks and 3 suits. ;D

Have fun!

in a 750 list Iwould totally take 2 railheads. Snipe out any anti-tank weapons and then work my way down the threat ladder from their. It's not a good way to earn friends. But it'll win you games.

Don't forget, 'Fishes are technically Tanks, too. Their Light, Infantry-Fighting-Vehicle-Type Tanks, but they're better at being tanks than a Rhino is, though, not as good as a Razorback at times...
