1x Master Vox Caster

Please tell me what your experiences have driven you to purchase and why. Thanks!
Dude, in my experience, Leman Russ tanks are gold! Simply, their armour of 14 is daunting! While most players field missile launchers as their heaviest weapons, with krak missiles they need a 6 to penetrate the front armour of your tanks! My personal loadout is a Battle Tank, and a Demolisher.
I use the Battle Tank to eat Space Marine squads in one shot from extreme range, and I have the Demolisher to take out pesky Terminators from close range. My armour is definetely the biggest threat at the beginning of the game.
I have a couple of sentinels, but have not yet found a use for them, as they die so quick and they're rather expensive.
Once I loaded up my Senior Officer with a master-crafted power fist, and he rocked soo many guys, it was nuts! Expensive, but funny when your pinner leader is mowing through Chaos Berzerkers!
Other than that, I've found that GUNS GUNS GUNS works best.
If your going all infantry I say more guardsmen! Gotta have those if you want all infantry.
Depends what type of army you want. I would probably say more guardsmen. For IG you need to use your strength in numbers.
Space Wolves 12-1
Wood Elves 1-2
Some tanks can add some flavour and another dimension to your army. The Leman Russ is the best tank in the game so I would pick up at least one of them. Troops do benefit a lot from tanks and both the basilisk and demolisher are great options.
Personally, I would get a leman Russ next...its sooo IG.
It's worth a krak!
High-five Plasma! Totally agree. Battle Tank is awesome!
