Which one should I buy? I am using Nurgle with 4th edition codex.
I would think the choice has everything to do with the rest of your army. I would recommend a pred however. It is the most versatile and reliable weapon platform.
I would have to say either the pred or the vindi as the dread has become a lot more dangerous for us to use in the new dex.

i would say predator cause its good for infantry killing and tank hunting and is a fairly armored tank. although personally i would choose a defiler but that isnt listed here.
Just like the others said, it depends on the rest of your army.
What do you want it to do for you?
Shoot tanks? Then it's a Predator you want.
Shoot light/medium infantry? Predator again.
Shoot heavy infantry into tiny, tiny pieces? Vindicator.
Be able to shoot some on it's way into closecombat where it'll mess your opponent's infantry and tanks up pretty bad while looking awsome? Dread.
Welllll with some modelling you have two slices of your cake and eat them! :party:
Buy yourself a Pred - build the side sponsons and turret but don't glue them into place.
Don't glue the front armour plate into place either.
Get yourself some plasti-card and then hit the DIY store to look for bits of pipe (or heck your garage/local skip or where ever) and build yourself a Vidicator cannon front piece using the pred armour plate as a template.
And there you go! Two heavy support choices in one tank! :party2:
i dont reccomend using a dreadnought cause of the shooting effect but some would disagree with me on the effectiveness of dreads. however i find our loyalist counterparts dreadnoughts are far superior to our own.
in my personal opinion if i wanted shooting along the way i would take a defiler as a battle canon can do a lot more then whatever you can give a chaos dread and if you need to cover distance and dont think your in charging range the fleet could always help. Also defiler is a much tougher tank but also more points.
If you presented a list we could help you decide easier as which tank you want to use. If your using something like 3 havoc squads take a pred for anti infantry or a vindicator for anti infantry roles. what you take all depends on the list, dont take a pred with all anti infantry guns if you lack tank killing weapons. so as i have said it depends on what kind of army you want to field and what the army could do better with.
Ok I have
1 Chaos lutenet
2 troop forces and a rhino and one group of termies.
I prefer Predators, they are good all rounders. Although I'm gonna be using a Vindicator occasionally too now that we have access.
Not to derail the Op's question but would it be worthwhile to put a Havoc Launcher on a Vindicator?
