    Exterminator + Pask = Ultimate Anti-Vehicle Weapons Platform

    Today I tried using this unit as a means of medium-to-long range anti armor:

    Leman Russ Exterminator
    -Hull Lascannon
    -Multi-Melta Sponsons
    -Pask

    245 points

    That amounts to 4 twin-linked STR 8 shots, one STR 10 shot, and 2 STR 9 melta shots, all hitting on 3s. Needless to say, I was extremely impressed. It is a little on the pricey side because of Pask, but it shredded a Rhino, 2 Land Speeders at the same time (in a squadron), a Predator, and a Vindicator over the course of 4 turns. It may have just been a lucky game, but as always I will continue to test it in battle. If I ever think a unit is not pulling its weight, I am quick to cut it out of my lists, but for right now this unit has definitely earned its keep. I think you guys should try it out also.

    Side Note: The cool thing is, this same exact setup should also be extremely effective against monstrous creatures, thanks to Pask. I have yet to try it out against an army such as Nids, though.

    That works, but...

    225 points will buy you 3 Hydras. That's TWELVE twin-linked S7 shots (9 hits on average), plus NINE S5 heavy bolter shots (4.5 hits on average).

    Odds vs. Rhino AV10 (Autocannons only):
    Stopped Target Movement: 96%
    Stopped Target Firing: 99%
    Destroyed Target: 72%
    Did Nothing to Target: 0%

    No way Pask-anything is going to match that. Especially from across the board with the 72" range of the Hydra + other bonuses vs. skimmers.

    Oh trust me, I know Hydras dominate dominate anything AV 12 and under. I use a full squadron consistently. But this tank is able to engage AV 13 and 14 effectively in addition to what the Hydras can handle.

    Nice, I also use a "super russ" commanded by pask. Same weapons as yours only I use a LRDemolisher.

    The demolisher cannon is beast, against vehicles it's a S10+1 ordance weapon, so If i can roll a 3+ on one of 2 dice i'm damaging it. Against units like terminators the secondary weapons can hit models that pass their invul saves or i roll low to wound. This tank can even destroy monsterous creatures with 4 shots of S8+ with AP 1 or 2 re-rolling wounds.

    Sure it's a fire magnet but it can easily destroy anything with an armour value.

    I'm a big fan of Exterminators. If you have the points for PASK, take him he is great on an exterminator. I like either an Exterminator with just hull Lascannon so I can keep it moving, or an Exterminator with Triple HB setup. This is good for transports at the begging and then decent ranged antitroop after the troops are in the open. If you take PASK with this setup , then your 9 HB shots can kill transports too.

    I don't personally like PASK on Ordnance tanks as no matter what you scatter 2/3 of the time and any scatter over two inches is off a vehicle with an odd exception.

    Agreed. In the early game Pask-Ex kills transports, which is usually more valuable than Land Raider-cracking. In the late game, he finishes off those annoying lone survivors.

    how do you get away with pask on a demolisher? his abilities only work when you dont move.. sounds like an easy target if you ask me..

    My IG army is mainly a gunline setup, so I can outshoot just about anything that sets up across from me. Besides after Pask kills something big I usually don't. But everyone knows how much firepower it takes to kill a russ in cover, usualy more than 1 turn of it at my LGS, where most armies are infantry based...
