Welcome to Librarium Online!
A friend of mine is playing a mech sisters list, so naturally I want to cripple his AV11 transports as soon as possible. This is the list I'm currently working with.
To deal with his mech orientated list I was wondering whether 5 Tankbustaz and a 3 Kannon Battery would be more effective than 12 lootas (the points cost is approx. the same). The Tankbustaz would sit between the two shoota mobz, benefitting from the KFF, and the Kannons would sit slightly further back. I would let him come to me (perhaps giving ground where necessary) and pepper his transports.
I also thought about dropping one kommando and getting boarding planks on both my trukks so they can pull along side the rhinos and immolators and have a nob/warboss klaw them.
Thoughts on the tankbustaz/kannons vs Lootaz?
Other general tankbusting thoughts given this list.
Kans with Rokkits.
Lootas. S7 multiple shots > S8 against AV11.

Lootas have plenty of shots. Don't use tankbustas, they're horrible. Cannons with a few ammo runts are pretty neat too.
"Politics is the womb in which war develops"
I've been fielding lootas in a battlewagon, with 4 big shootas and killkannons (though thinking about dropping the killkannons due to their short range - might sub in one of the other guns).
They've been very successful at taking out light vehicles and absolutely massacred infantry.
I may consider running two battlewagons with 2 squads of 10 lootas and a mek or 2 in them to perform repairs. This will allow me to split their fire while the nobz chop up everything too tough for the lootas to take care of.
