Hello everyone. I am putting together an airborne list (as many of you know) and im trying to decide between either some Griffons or Medusas that i could porxy as "drop tanks" to give my army some needed anti infantry. Now i am a fan of both choices but just to see what yall think i would like to know in reference to my airborne list which tank is better? All thoughts and opinions are again welcome as you post or make a choice on the poll, thanks for the help!
Well, I invision Air Cavalry having ground support that is very in-your-face with the drop troops so I would go with demolishers, but since that isn't a choice, medusa. Griffons just seem too standoffish and stationary for a fast, aggressive force like Air Cav.

It realy depends as to what you have in your list already. But if we're going to a fluff point of veiw the Griffon being lighter with a smaller gun would probably be the better choice for fluff. You can always model it as a light tank, and have a turret rather than the Heavy Mortar. I've done the same with Hydras and they look like mini Exterminators - quite cool.
My only problem with the Griffon is that it cant shoot within 12 inches of itself and idk about you but if i get the chance id like to shoot at something right before it assaulted me, is the griffons cant shoot withing 12 of itself effect it alot? Anybody had any experience with that?
That's what you mounted flamers are for.
I voted for the Griffon, but it does matter what is in your list already. If you have lots of AT, bring the Griffon. The ability to re-roll scatter is amazing and makes the Griff well worth the 75pts you spend.

Whoops, didn't catch the astericks in the codex there. My bad.
