I was just wondering, my thousand sons army needs anti tank(Duh!. So in 1850 pt list, I have already included a pred w/ lascannons all around. Now, Should I add a dread w/ a TL las and ML w/ mutated hull or should I put in another predator w/ autocannon, lascannon sponsons, and then give mutated hull to both preds?
Personally Id take the other pred instead fo the dred. Its cheaper can move farther and has a better chance of taking out a tank. the only the a pred cant do is go into HtoH. instead of giving mutated hull though Id go with parasitic possession. allowing you to regeneratate damage done to them. but thats just me.
I agree, the predator is better for tankbusting. Dreads can be customed to awesome infantry blasters, but you'll in all probability rely on your CSM for that..
What I suggest is that you take a dreadnought with two CC weapons instead. Such dreads are underestimated, and you could probably need that extra CC support.
Ave Dominus Nox!
Definantly the pred my friend. They are alot more effective against tanks do to the firepower and the cheaper cost
About the CC Dread, check out the posts about CC Dreads, and you will see that the main disadvantage is that: 1 Dreads are bullet magnets/2 They take a long time to get into CC and hurt stuff
A pred will be much better against tanks than a dred is, but a dred can go cc which gives you some more options in the heat of battle. If you are just looking for anti-tank though the pred is the way to go hands down.
Also the dred will atract a lot more fire. I don't know but something makes me want to shoot at a dred even though it may not be the best target. :rolleyes:

I would opt for the dread mostly because It can get som use done In hth as well as shooting. However the dread Is one of the biggest fire magnets In the game, and so will be shot at alot (talking from experience here). so you should try and keep It away from the biggest guns the enemy has.
This is coming late, but I think you should give your pred Mutated hull and Parasitic possesion; then take a completely Un-upgraded 'nought to use as a fire magnet... <trust me, they always go for the 'nought>
'And Lo! In A Cloud Of Much Prettiness And All That,
Came Karnack! And Let It Be Known That He Said;
Can the predator take a flamer or heavy flamer?
turretweapon is either twin-linked Lc or AC
as for sponsonweapons it can take HB or LC
