Been playing around with Razorbacks a bit, currently building up my Sable Swords force and been doing some thinking (which usually doesn't end too well for me...)
What option for the TL Heavy Bolters would you take and why? Or would you keep the Heavy Bolters?
I always keep the heavy bolters - anything else makes the transport a bigger and more expensive target, and the primary role should be getting people to where they need to be. AV11 doesn't cut the mustard as a gun platform.
TLHB spam is a perfectly viable source of anti-infantry firepower - especially if you've got a bunch of them.
I have been using TLAC and have been very pleased with them. They are close to a lascannon at dealing with mechanical because of rending and are more effective vs hordes than heavy bolters. The upgrade is the cost of 2 tactical marines(roughly) and does a lot more. They have been making their points back and then some, so I try to find the points in my lists to take a couple.
Being a high priority target is not always a problem. If I can get you to focus fire on the assault cannon Razorback then the heavy bolter Razorbacks get free rein to go for their objectives. Buying my other transports a turn to get across the board is worth the points. Of course, they could choose to not make them a priority, then so much the better for me: )
I don't see the point in TLHB. I'd rather have the fire points that a rhino has. If I'm going to use razorbacks i go big and take the LasPlas combo. People are usually going for my vindicator and LR anyway.
I go for the TL lasback quite regularly, but it depends on the pointslevel mostly. You can keep it cheap and effective by going for TL HB.
