Well as of now I have a defiler and a predator and still need one more heavy support choice for a 2000 point Death Guard army. My vehichles are configured as follows:
Defiler: 205 points
Idirect fire, Mutated hull, Standard Weaponry
Daemonic Possession, Mutated Hull, Twin-linked las, 2 las side-cannons
Which of these would be most wise to add another of? Doesn't have to be configured exactly the same but probably will be. The rest of my army consists of 5 troops (with 2 rhinos), 1 daemon prince, no elites, and those 2 vechicles. I have nearly 250 points left for spending...
Any advice? Thnx in advance for any replies.
wow it wasn't long ago you were asking advice on how to start the army and now you've hit 2000 points. By the way how can only 5 squads of marines and a daemon prince make 2000 pts. Even adding the predator (which is the best option) can't reach 2k points.
Ok on to the topic the predator is better for a death guard army. It provides anti-tank and a survivable vehicle since it will usually be alone. Admittedly an indirect defiler is hard to kill but its weapons aren't as effective. Defiler is used for taking out large squads of heavy infantry but as death guard you shouldn't have a problem with that. The thing you are probably lacking is strong heavy support and anti-tank.
Knowing if your death guard infiltrates or not also helps. No doubt Caluin or someone will dispute me on this.:rolleyes:
Edit: Also an indirect defiler is much better than a mutated hull one.

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
On your Defiler you currently have, you don't need mutated hull because he'll probally be behind cover using indirect fire.
I like Predators more then Defilers. I find defiler's to often be a waste of points and in lots of my games do very little; however, I find that lots of other people like them a lot.
I'd go with the Predator. If it's anti-tank you need, then Autocannon turret and side sponser lascannons can work well.
For anti-hoard armies, then Autocannon turret and Heavy Bolter side sponsers can work well.
Your predator should be 195 points, and both of these guys need smoke launchers if you plan on having them shot at. Won't use it 100% of the time, but when you do, you'll be glad you have it.
