The title says it all. I am thinking about picking a trio up for when I don't want to use mortarion and as such was wondering how people use them? I currently have them loaded up with entropy cannons with the intention to sit them at the front and soak fire whilst laying down a wall of fire, albeit on 4+. However, option 2 with the spewers and being aggressive is tempting.....

How do you guys equip them? How do you employ them? Very interested.

The DG list generally lacks effective ranged AT options, so most builds seem to favor the Entropy Cannons. That said, magnets are you friends.

He knows that I know and you know that he actually doesn't know the rules at all.

Entropy canons are a solid choice, extra high strength high damage shots at range will rarely be regretted.

If you are into silly combos, the PBC is a daemon unit so epidemius or a herald can buff the plaguespitters up to strength 8 (not sure if they stack so maybe strength 9 if you take both?) for epic overwatch.

Entropy cannons. They are the closest thing to anti-tank that DG have even if they are a bit unreliable.

I usually stick to the heavy slugger due to points and the complimentary range.

Entropy cannons if I expect to sit back and mortar the field all game long.

Spitters if I expect deep strikers or horde armies like orks. That way I can shell for a few turns and then proactively roll up and start flaming.

Always give them an arch contaminator chaos lord as a baby sitter so they get reroll 1's to hit and reroll all failed wounds.

I usually try to get a good amount of command points when I use them since I almost always end up rerolling the d6 for the amount of shots for one of the tanks. Usually my goto extra batallion is 2 nurgle demonic heralds (they have a spell that heals demons/demon engines) + 3 nurgling units to deter deep strikers. Alternatively Epidemus and a generic herald work too.

Use magnets. I magnetized the sponsons, the guns were really easy to magnetize if your green stuff afterward to hide them; I'm waiting on my second tank to do the same!
