i was wondering how i should equip my dread, rhino, and predator.
on my predator i'm using the autocannon and the lascannon sponsons, but other than that i'm not sure what demonic abilities or if i should put on the combi-bolter or somthin .. same goes for the rhino and the dread. on the dread i was thinkin about putting on a plasma cannon and a power claw, but like i said i'm not sure what to do after that ??
btw do the spikes that are mounted on the front of the rhino-pred cost points or are they just considered spikes ?
For Predators, I always like to go with specialised weapons depending on what it's used for. So all lascannons for tank hunting or an autocannon with heavy bolters for troops. If you do it the other way around you're going to be under efficient for half of your weapons. The only time I change this is with light vehicles. If a lot of vehicles are AV10 or 11 then I use an Autocannon with two Lascannons, as I end up with more shots that can do damage. It's a good idea against Witch Hunters with Penitent Engines, Dark Eldar, or Eldar vypers.
I like to have my Dreadnaughts with either a lascannon or a plasmacannon and a CCW. I choose a lascannon for armies with big nasty armour like IG. Plasmacannons are better for lightly armoured Meq armies and armies with lower AC vehicles.
As for Rhinos, they blow up too easily for my liking. Because of that I give them just enough to get my squad to where it needs to go, and no more. So I just use Extra Armour and Smoke Launchers.
As for Vehicle upgrades, the only two I ever use are Daemonic Possession and Mutated Hull. Mutated Hull is really a bit pricy for what it does, and I only use it if I really want my dreadnaught to survive. Daemonic Possession is a godsend for me. Vehicle Upgrades heavily favour transports over shooting tanks. If you get a glance or a penetrating you aren't shooting next turn no matter what, but with Daemonic Possession you can still shoot unless the vehicle is destroyed. So I always buy it for my Predator if I have the points.
Beasts of Chaos (4000)
Chaos Marines (3000)
Dreadnought: PC and ML combo is very effectieve against marines armies
Predator: either full lascannons or AC and HB sponson, any other way and the tanks becomes less effectieve at what it should do.
If you smart you but 2 Predator adn don't glue the turrets fixed on them so you can swap them.
Rhino: just the smoke launchers and extra armour, anything else is redundant.
thanks a lot for the help.
for the predator, if i'm going to be fighting IG, 1ksons, and eldar, which combo would i want to have ??
also i was considereing feilding a havoc squad .. so if i were going to do that w/ a predator and a dread .. would i want to use somethin different on the preador .. i'm not to sure what i'm going to use on the havocs?
