I like the FW Macharius tank and I was thinking about picking up one.
Out of the Vulcan bolter and Vanquisher cannon types, which would be better suited for my army?
Here's a list of what I normally like using:
-doctrines: carapace, iron discipline, veterans, close order drill
-command squads - sort of plain, sometimes with a mortar; if I have an extra squad sometimes I use 3 plasma guns and a medic against MEQs
-veterans w/3 plasma guns and a lascannon (usually 3 squads)
-grenadiers/ISTs w/ plasma
-lascannon support squads
-heavy bolter support squads/auto cannon squads
-normal squads w/ plasma/autocannon. Against hordes I usally take a heavy bolter instead
-basilisks w/ indirect fire obviously
-russ MBTs w/ 3 heavy bolters or hull las/sponson bolters
-demolishers w/ 3 heavy bolters
Sometimes I take GK or Sister allies.
Also I plan picking up (eventually) a hellhound and getting some rough riders assembled

I've ordered a Macharius Vulcan already, mainly because it looks cool and it has a titan weapon on it, plus the though of being able to wipe out an entire marine squad with one gun.
I don't know which tank would be tactically superior but I'll be using it mainly in Apocalypse so it wouldn't matter too much anyway as it'll probably blow up by turn 2 because it looks so cool.
FW are being really slow lately with orders because the release of Apocalypse has overwhelmed them. I ordered my Macharius just over a month ago and it hasn't arrived yet.
