    The Joy Of Exterminators

    The exterminator was a tank that I'd always avoided using. To be honest I think it was the lack of a big battle cannon. I reasoned that if you're going to field a tank, then that tank should clearly have a great whacking gun on the top; the bigger the better! Why bother with an exterminator? Sure, it's got a load of small guns on it but i can just stick them in with my infantry platoons!

    Well, I finally gave the exterminator a go and I have to say I love this tank. Since I've started using it, its consistently been my most effective unit. All that firepower! So many dice to roll (particularly if you stick a heavy stubber on the top). Even against marine-like armies, the sheer number of shots the thing chuggs out more than makes up for the lack of AP when compared with a battle cannon. And they don't tend to draw fire the way standard leman russes and demolishers do. It's bizarre - the guys I usually play against know it's a nasty tank, they know it can do a lot of damage, but they still concentrate on the standard leman russes first.

    So there you go. Get an exterminator. Get two exterminators. Maybe three.

    So my humble Guardsman's fist is as strong as a blast from his laser rifle?

    I have three "Exterminators" in my 2000 points list. I don't have the actual FW tank, so I proxy with a standard LR.

    It's actually more effective at the Conqueror's job than the Conqueror. They make for excellet Aces and HQs too since they're the cheapest LR.

    With a leman russ battle tank i always get the feeling that the 3 heavy bolters that i have to pay for are wasted as you cant fire them and the battle cannon but just thinking about the 8 shots that the Exterminator can dish out makes me want to take one. A heavy stubber would make it 11 shots!

    Same armour then the leman russ but can fire all its weapons and is more useful vs dark elder,orks and nids. I would run 1 of them with 2 normal lemans if they were still in our codex but oh well.

    Actually the Exterminator usually carries the Tri-Bolter set-up too, so you're looking at 11 shots per turn on the move! 14 shots with the Stubber is just sweet.

    Combine that with the Ace Gunners Doctrine and reroll 1s (with the ACs already rerollable).

    It scratches that part of your gun loving, doesn't it?

    No they were taken out of the codex along with a lot of other cool stuff, you can only use them with armored company.

    EDIT - Defeated by Stella Cadente!

    KOS-MOS if it's in IA then is it not possible to use one with player consent? I don’t think a tournament would allow it outside an A-C list, but in a friendly game I think you might be able too.

    You guys are making me regret my choosing Conquerors over the Exterminator.
    If you do things right people wont be sure if you have done anything at all.

    and if a player does not consent....................kill him.

    exterminators are 10x better than conquerors, if an enemy spreads out too much you`ll only be able to probably get 2 men with that small template, but an exterminators autocannon can also do, plus it costs WAAAAAAY less pointswise
