Help for noob and tanks

My suggestion would be to punch them to death instead, and our best weapons for that are rock saw acolytes and aberrants.
Rock saws are great - we can have two for every unit of five, and with Primus support they can be hitting on 2s, wound on 3s, AP-4 (so pretty much no save), and 2 damage a time.
Aberrants (of either flavour) can do the job too. Again, they really benefit from the Primus (and the Abominant, who can also smash tanks on a good day).
Remember that both acolytes and aberrants also have rending claws. With the right tools (Twisted Helix for +1 strength, or the +1 to wound psychic power; the Primus' +1 to wound ability) even claws will wound T8 on 5s, with 6s jumping to AP-4 again.
Or, go for a combination. I've had success with a group of Russes in the backfield, and two units of aberrants either pushing forward in cover, or Perfect Ambushing in - my opponent can either take on three battle cannons and a bunch of plasma, or hang back and get mugged by the aberrants.

Thanks for the detailed reply. It's good to know there is stuff for dealing with tanks without resorting to tanks, so no rush to buy the start collecting box, but it may be useful if I do.
