I am just doing this as an experiment to see if people think tanks rule or not. Being a guard player my self i have go to say that tanks rule
I agree tanks are very powerfull and at the same time very vulnerable.
this makes it more fun to deploy them as you ave to keep a constant eye out for anything that could destroy them.
It takes a good hand to get the most of them.
Tanks have their uses, but I think it's the common troop choices that rule the battle field.
Of course tanks are good, but they can also be a giant waste of points with bad luck.

Being the technophile that Iam..I'd hve to vote yes (several timesi f it would let me) I just love those big beautiful super-heavies. Baneblades, drool :wub:
I've never really been a great fan of tanks or vehicles. especially transports. I hate the Idea of losing most of my squad to a lucky shot.
hence the armies I collect are tyranids, 13th company and eldar- the last was a moment of weakness: reapers and banshees are too good to resist. then I had to buy transports for them; which always seem to get destroyed :realmad:
Kind of unfair to ask, seeing as some armies have very few/crap tanks, and therefore some players have only had experience with such tanks, and therefore think lower of them. I voted 'I'm not sure.'
You cannot win, for to fight us is to give us power.
I always take a few tanks with my Guard force, especially now that I have a Hellhound model put together and painted, and a Demolisher in the works.
I like tanks because they really are a big question in every battle. They could become immobilized, or worse blow up and be useless (sad). A tank could kill three times its points in enemies (amazing)! A tank could lose all of its weapons (sadness) but then hurl itself at the nearest squad, tank shocking them off the board (surpise luck!
You just never know. Infantry are pretty consistant, and just not as exciting to me.
I also like painting and modelling tanks much better than squad after squad of men, it just seems more worth the time you put into it.

Tanks are a formidable force in Warhammer
I would definitely say that tanks are very useful...in most circumstances. Like LRC's, I don't really like them. They are fire magnets, and one well placed lascannon shot can take it out. Guard, Tau, Dark Eldar, etc. would be pretty much useless without their tanks. But other races don't necessarily need tanks. Like my Raven Guard, I use one rhino......sometimes. Don't get me wrong, tanks are great, but I just wanted to state my opinion about how they can be bad. I think we all know why they are good.
