I absolutely hate them. Idea's on wiping them out without losing too much of your army?
Vindicators are a nice way of dealing with any heavy infantry, although you'll obviously have to keep them safe to fire. Otherwise, tie them up in melee with something that can bypass the save (hidden power fist, IC with power weapon, Dread) or drop plasma on them.
They can be threatening en masse, but their range of weapons has been reduced since 4th and any ordinary method of killing heavy infantry will work on them.

a more expensive way is taking vanguard vets and assaulting them when on the turn the come in. As a blood angel youll get to re roll reserve and only scatter 1 d6. otherwise poodles right on vindicators are a good choice. they can move 12 inches and still fire (assuming you play angels). you can also take sanguinary guard with dante and drop them so they dont scatter and fire 6 melta shots into them. the only drawback is if you roll poorly hes gonna kill them all.
A moment of weakness spawns a life tme of heresy...
I got a few tips. Pump a lot of ammo from a Land Raider Crusader. Termies with assault cannons or termie assault squad armed with lightning claws, thunder hammers and storm shields. Then best choice is high powered ordnance weapons.

The boltgun. When you mass them, they're like flashlights, only better. My favorite way to kill Obliterators is to have as many IG squads as have LOS shoot at them. Roll fifteen billion dice, and the law of averages plays in your favor. In the absence of lasguns, bolters work well, too. Rate of fire kills troops. Strength of fire kills vehicles.

i Haven't had to much problems with them obliterators, i don't use specialised weapons to take them down, just shoot everything that you have at them till they fall, i guess that's the best tip.
since, everyone Assumes the Vindicator kills the Obliterator instantly, nobody assumed it would ever shoot back on it's way there, or getting shot at by the rest of the enemy army,
me personally, i don't think the Obliterators are that big of a deal, they only having 2 wounds makes them fall pretty fast if you pour enough fire in them. so just shoot till they fall, that is all
The best way I find is to use lascannons. Good range, will insta-kill them and they only get a 4+ cover. Then you can concentrate the rest of your army on the rest of his.

Turning my anti tank (meltaguns, or the mentioned lascannon) works well. Or Plasma guns and the rest of the squad's bolters.
