basically just need to know what you guys think would be better im starting off my army and ill have anough money for one of the 2. land raider or a defiler
Im in a similar position myself and leaning toward an infantry heavy Alpha Legion. If I was to field some armour it would be a pair of preds or dredds.
If you do a search, the general consensus is that land raiders are not good value for their points, so that would make the defiler the best choice for you. I would go for a pred though if I were you.
i have a pred wanted something else and i was going for either defiler or land raider thanks for advice sounds about like what my friend eric was saying to
Hey there kenshin, so, ni the future, please take the time to review your posts and not use grammatical shortcuts. 2 for two. Abbreviations are usually very well tolerated and genuine spelling errors(I'm sure I have my fair share). It makes answering questions and reveiwing posts for us a lot easier. Thanks.
Anyhow, between the two, the defiler is a better option in general, most people will agree that a landraider should really be reserved for much higher points games, some say 1850, I'm far more conservative and say 2250 minimum.
It really depends on your army and what you need to support what you have, though.
W/D/L Eleventy trillion billion/NONE/ NONE - I am STILL rulezor!
WINDMILLS DO NOT WORK THAT WAY!
hmm sounds like defiler best option for me at my points im going to have
If you're speaking from a purely tactial view.. it might not be intersting, but I'd say another predator.
Or even better, more CSMs.
But between defiler and Landraider.. it's got to be defiler as the Yak advised.
It's weird,.. i've never even considered a landraider. Even though being able to assault out of them is insanely good...

I'd say get the Defiler. It's relatively cheap for what it does and it's ordnance. Like the yak said, raiders are only good in games 2250pts and up. They have good abilities but have a horrendus pts cost. So yea, I's stick with the defiler
Or you could save some points and get a Vindicator or Basilisk if you're doing Iron Warriors
Takka n' Wakka's Dakka Attacka! 33W / 6L / 1D
Pair of Twin Linked Lascannons
Twin Linked Heavy Bolter
5 Terminator or 10 Power Armour Transport Capability
Battle Cannon (Ordnance)
Heavy Flamer/ T-L Lascannon
I'd go for the Defiler, that Battle Cannon can really help, as it has the chance to make transports and the passengers turn to mush. Plus, it has Assault Capabilty which is nice in a crunch. And the Defiler costs fewer points.
I vote Defiler.
In all my army, I have 3 defilers, 5 predators and only 1 land raider. I don't know why, I never find any use for it. I used it 4 times and he never did enough for me to be gratefull I ever bought it. Yes, it is well armoured and it may be usefull, but there is so many weapons that can get throught so easily that there is no use paying so much for a single vehicle.
As for the defiler, if you learn how to use it, it is good. And when I say Good, I mean great. That's all I have to say.
