I have been experimenting with Black Templar Razorbacks and they came out to be realy great LOS blockers. Just put one between 2 pieces of terrain and get your squads moving behind it. Your opponent will either ignore it and your squads won't be harmed or it will shoot at it and you get a huge piece of terrain.
Does anybody else have had other experience with them or have you guys experimented with Rhinos?
DonĀ“t mess with the dicegod
I always buy razors instead of rhinos, you can thus switch between the two, I use razors in my nilla marines, for anti tank fire support, TLLCs, usually 1 per 500 points
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Yeah - rhinos are excellent LOS-blockers...I usually field a pair of them that act as blockers for my infantry or my Vindicator....
Yes Rhinos are excellent LOS blockers, park them in front of devestators, blockade landraiders, monoliths etc or stick multiple butt to butt and form a nice wall for your advancing army.
The man of tomorrow is judged by his battle today.
I like using the Razorback as a super light tank. Rhinos are my only walls. Besides, you don't need to cap your troop to 6 to get one. If I take a Razorback, I need it.

Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
It's a shame that they don't come with another weapon selection - like missile launchers or multi-melta (like the FW one) that you can't use on tournies...
i dont use razorbacks at all, i find one with a heavy bolter no more effective than a 5 man tactical squad with a heavy bolter it carries, and i certainly will not pay 90 points for the lascannon option, thats 40 points on a single las, you could get another LS tornado for that.
i also dont like a 6 man troop carrier, essp as i play my tactical squads as assault units, where 7-10 is essential but thats just me

MUAHAHAHA) and the 6 man squad (which had a power sword in it and a melta gun) did there job and held the imperial guard from shooting/ advancing to take objectives.
so RB are good, and there are many tactics. i plan to use it more often because it is a tank that oponents see as a 'waste of time' so they dont focus on it, so they focus on the dreadnought instead.
I rather take opt not to take a TLLC because you pay a stagering 90pts for it. The six men squad that I use is equipt with a Multi melta and a melta gun. My opponent don't see a real threat in them and if he does he shoots his whole army on 6 marines. Meaning that the rest of my army won't take that much casualties.
