Default RazorBack loadout

Hey folks

Quick question here, I've just bought a razorback with combat squad. Now with 5th only a day away, how do you think I should make my new tank?

(edit: I had Las-Cannons in mind because dont have any at the moment and need some armour penetraiting weapons)

Tau will be my main enemy, however general advice is always welcome

Thanks For the help
Canadish

Well I would advise the TL-lascannons. Even more so if you're facing the tau and have no anti armour support in the for of lascannons. You're gonna need all the help you can get with vehicles being more durable now.

Well, you might want to wait as well. I havn't seen any confirmation, but I've heard that RBs will get more options when the 5th Ed Space Marine codex comes out. Maybe not, but it never hurts to wait a bit longer to be sure.

Cheers guys

I went for the Lascannons in the end, they just looked to fun to pass up!

No point waiting for the Marine Codex, I already bought the model so I'm stuck with the Bolters and Cannons anyway

Anyway, thanks again

Lascannons are still going to be the best anti tank option so good choice canadish. I'vr heard lots(LOTS) of rumours going that razorbacks can take TL multimelta, twinlinked assault cannons, TL plasmacannons, and a missile launcher thing.....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

Forge World has all those goodies for the Razorback. But I'm not sure if they are Codex legal.

Not now, but they will be once the new codex is out.

I may order some of them. I didnt glue the cannons down so I could get some extra options, if it wasnt a load of effort for a mere Razorback....

If you see a hammerhead on the table, your gonna need several razorbacks or dont even bother using it.

Railcannon is 72 inch range s10 ap1, so a razorback after his first turn = no razorback

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
My fluff so far, plz read and give feed back
