OK so this army has done well for me so far, but im still just not sold on the landraider. granted out of 10 games it has survived 10 times. but it has done little except get me accros the board with my flamer unit, wich has woorked well..however i feel this army could be tweeked a little. I want to like obies, but i always feel like im using them wrong or they just get blown up so quickly. i have even thought about dropping all my heavys and putting only obies in instead. (aka. no preds, no landraider, add a rhino, and rest all obies..i dunno) What i need is some ideas...i love the four units of plagues...and i love the demon princes...i like a tough army that can tak a beating and keep on going...any ideas?

Okay here is what I would do...
1. Remove all combi-weapons and upgrade a melta squad to PG's
2. Make the dakka pred an auto/las
3. Land Raiders are cool, but not always the best. I would not use it as a taxi for the flamers, possibly remove it and replace with a rhino.
4. toss in an oblit or 2 to replace it, the trick to oblits is to dig them in in cover and attack targets of opportunity or transports.
5. If you keep the land raider, go for possession, all your weapons are twin-linked anyway.
Just some thoughts
Thank you very much for your advice. I will keep all of it in mind. As for other who look at this...i would love to hear your opinions. if you have never posted before...this is a great place to start.
Seems to me that your only horde solution is 2 flamers and a combi flamer. As someone who dislikes land raiders perhaps swapping the LR out for a defiler/vindicator, giving the flamer squad a rhino with combi flamer would up your anti horde without overly reducing your anti tank capacity. There should be spare points for something extra in there if you want to regain some anti tank.
