    Your lack of anti tank is extremely noticable. Swap your combi flamers on the Sternguard for Combi Melta's. You will also want to give them a drop pod. Give all the scouts sniper rifles, bolter scouts are pretty useless. Your Tac squad is equiped oddly. I give them a melta gun and a multi melta personally.

    As of right now,the Dreadnought is your only anti tank! You need more! The Legion of the Damned are pretty worthless, and expensive. Drop these guys in favor of more anti tank.

    These are fine, but equip one of these with atleast 1 multi melta

    I used this list against Tau the other day, and I'm hearing what you are saying. Killing his tanks was a lot harder than it should have been. I actually had to use my 5 snipers to immobilise one of his tanks.

    The Tac squad managed to drop pod right behind a tank and destroyed a gun through bolter fire, but destroyed it with the plasma rifle. The heavy bolter was useless, so I was thinking about swapping that out.

    Yeah, they didn't perform that well at all. Not sure where there place is on the battlefield to be honest. They didn't affect the outcome of the game at all. But that could be just me.

    yeah, I realised this when I had all three sitting about 12 inches in front of a front armour 12 tank. that sucked

    This died first round, before I got to shoot anything. So I was looking at ditching it, it was just to much of an easy target.

    So what are the best anti tank to put into the army, after trading out the Damned and thunderfire cannon


    Thanks for the help, it's very much appreciated.

    Sternguard, Dreadnoughts, and Land Speeder are fantastic at killing tanks. Luckily you have all three in this list! They just need a bit of re-equiping. Make sure to give your Sternguard melta guns and combi melta guns, as well as a drop pod. try 4 combi melta's and 2 melta guns, then combat squad them when they drop. This way your are almost guaranteed to kill 1-2 tanks. The Land Speeders can also be effective at killing tanks with 2 multi melta's. Try adding a predator with sponson Lascannons, it will destroy light and medium armor alike!
