    As you could use some more heavy support (and it's tougher than a dread) I'd go with a predator. But the set up I would choose would be twin-lascannon and heavy bolter sponsors. I'll tell you why. 1st: if you deck it out with all lascannons you will only be able to fire the turret mounted las if you move. So you'd have to pick a damn good spot for the tank to sit. Personally I like to be mobile, ready for anything so i don't like this limitation. Secondly, The mix of weapons lets you deal with whatever targets your up against. Be they troops or vehicles. This would also be a better set up against nids. Hope I could be of some help. :cool:

    you have meltaguns with all of your squads so i would use the predator with heavy bolter sponsors. the tank is a lot more versitile than the dred and a havok squad with meltas. you could take plasma guns, but then there is a risk of killing yourself. the predator will allmost always be able to get to a point where it can shoot their tanks and your army could use at least one vehicle.

    I'd go with the dread, mainly for fluff reason, but also because if can advance along with your regular plague marines and still deliver the heavy fire you need.

    The only disadvantage I can see is the fire frenzy rules, while not as bad as then used to be, the risk of Blood Rage might persuade you to loose the missile launcher and stick to the dread ccw.

    While on the subject of upgrades, I've found that Mutated Hull prolongs the life of a dread no end, and a friend of mine swears by it for his predators.

    If you add a rhino to the havoc squad, I'd go with meltas, otherwise plasma guns are better.

    If you're infiltrating Meltas, you shouldn't need a lot more Anti-armour support . . .

    preadator with twin lascannon and lascannon sponsors 145
    dread with twin lascannon and maybe missile laucher 135
    or a 7 havoc squad with 4 plasmas or melta guns and infiltratre 214
    * Pred - Nice model, but LC will be of limited use in an Infiltrating army.

    * Dread - Rage/ Frenzy makes this a tricky choice in any Chaos army.

    * Havocs - RF Plasguns and Bolters to defend your DZ, perhaps?

    A Pred with AC/ HBs is a tough, mobile Anti-personnel Unit.

    A Dread with TLHB/ HFlamer is another. Or a Dread w/ 2x DCCW.

    All could help complement a DG army already killy vs Armour.

    But, from your list, I'd choose the Havocs; Rhino optional.

    Good luck!
