when the new guard codex comes out what are the two tanks( any kind) that you want the most to be included.
personally i would like to see them ad vanquishers and (even though they probably wont ad it) the destroyer tank hunter.
In terms of the model I would like to see the Vanquisher, but I'm not really expecting it to appear in the codex. If you want to use them you can always get the Imperial Armour books and play using them...
I expect Vanquishers and Exterminators, they were in the older codex, so it wouldn't surprise me if they brought them back in, just to laugh at everyone who got rid of theres and were too scarred to use the FW rules
Executioner and Conqueror. I like plasma and speed.

The exterminator will probobly come and i bet we'll see the return of the "other" artillary tank, the griffon.

The executioner, by a mile. Since the plasma cannon is not ordinance you'll be able to fire it plus the sponsons.
The exterminator/conqueror for the same reason, though it all depends on how the point costs pan out.
Vanquishers? Only if they have a way to improve the BS.

RecklessFable's Journey to Mediocrity (Painting an IG army)
I've been addicted to World of Tanks lately and neglecting my IG... But it is so... much... fun!
Right, just so I have these variants figured out :
Vanquisher : Long range battle cannon and Anti-Tank shells
Conqueror : Short range, low power (not ordnance) battlecannon
Executioner : Plasma Destroyer
Destroyer Tank Hunter : Laser Destroyer
Exterminator : Twinlinked Autocannon
Now, why would anyone want the destroyer tank hunter? The Vanquisher anti tank shells are better.
Also, the Exterminator, who wants to pay that much for a twin linked autocannon...?
Same with the Conqueror, expensive for a weak cannon.
Is the plasma destroyer a small or large blast by the way?
Im hoping for the vanquisher (will save my army a lot of lascannons) and the Executioner.
Twinlinked autocannon would look so cool
And this might just be me, but I never have my tanks not move. In 5th there are way to many fast assault units that can mess you up if you do not move. And if you move, then sponsons are useless anyways.
This is all valuable knowledge as I am just building my IG army
