Well, the problem with running a tank, or multiple tanks, in a 4 minion group, is your XP is so dilluted your tank(s) will be much smaller than a team focused around a tank. Most likely your ST and DX will be lower than your opponents. Plus the costs to equip, and keep your weapons as large as possible, will be great.

Personally I would recommend either using a ToA to boost one minion and have him be the designated tank, or go with just one tank in a smaller group, maybe 2 minion? Either way your tank will be much larger and more powerful.

Or you could try an enchantment based tank team I suppose. I've always wondered how well it would work if you had all 4 be enchanters, and used probably a RoS so your spells wouldn't be dispelled. Probably RoS on a Haste minion, then have another train AS, another GS, and mainly UC and Prot on the last? That would give you one cheap tank- but you would still have to pay to equip 3 others. If you can afford it, go for it!

how would a 3 minion tank team work or still too much xp bein taken from tank?

The best strategy will always be to start with one minion, then buy more minions at certain points in your development. This way, the tank will always be the biggest of the minions, and the exp dilution is smaller in the long run.

Eventually, the exp contained within each minion will always be almost equal. In the long run, it basically does nothing. However, buying minions is an excellent way to make the most exp in the shortest time possible using your N*B. A third more exp is gained, see?

4 minions using Haste and Giant Strength and all using ranged and melee weapons used to be quite effective to a certain point, but now you will have trouble keeping your weapons big enough to hit something, especially since weapon allowance has been halved and the introduction of encumbrance.

Look at my team: it's three enchanters who exist solely to boost up a single AoF tank and weaken opposing minions.

As noted above, your biggest problem running a four minion tank based team is going to be the Weapon Allowance nerf, assuming you have the resources to keep your equipment up to a reasonable level to begin with. After the last change month, the WA is nearly non-existent, and I've been forced to rely on defense and damage reduction rather than my now useless offense to win battles.
