are the worth it in a 1500 pt battle?
Oh man - its a tough question for me.
Do we need the carrying cpacity to get troops where they need to be - in CC..?
Yes, i think we do.
Are LRC's pretty much ignored after disgorging cargo......?
Yeah, think so as well.
However.....in 1500 points, and speaking as someone who is also putting together a list at around that value, i'm not sure they are a viable option, simply as an LRC and a Decent Squad can account for 1/3 of your total army cost and leave you dreadfully short of other neccesary units.
Bottom line is that i am going to try the list first, then post results and opinions...not entirely sure at this time, cos with the bolters being liable to hit but not actually wound very much, and the general lack of Anti-tank weaponry, i am erring on the side of the pre-heresy Land Raider i have under construction. Still gets the grandmaster and retinue into CC, and has two lascannons to help bust annoying vehicles.
Sorry thats not more helpful dude.
NOBODY expects the Holy Inquisition!
Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise....
Our two weapons are fear and surprise... and ruthless efficiency....
Our three weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...
and an almost fanatical devotion to the Emperor....
Our four... no...
Amongst our weapons... Amongst our weaponry...
are such elements as fear, surprise...
I'll come in again.
It can be worth ti as long as it stays alive. 14 armor is really really hard to kill even with lascannons and meltabombs but once they tank goes there goes 1/3 of your army so make sure the points do what they need to do.

I say no. I think minimum and probably the best number of points to use it at is 1850. That way, it doesn't take up as much of a percent of ur army, but there still arent an OUTRAGEOUS number of things to destroy it.
No. Although its a tough one, Gk's are already drastically low on models as it is and this would take up a large chunk of your army. Also, it only takes one Lucky Lascannon shot and you're toast! And it relies on first turn quite a bit too.
I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That's my dream. That's my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight... razor... and surviving.
the crusaders have always helped me against tyranids and necrons i think that which race your going against is a factor too
When cities burn and armies turn
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day,
But warriors know it in their marrow when they
die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have
fought at all.
the keeper of the stuff!
the knower of werty!
the master of the obvious!
one thing's for sure, the only army that you don't want to use it as a transport against, is the necrons. Even their average Joe can score a glancing hit on a 6. It is far to easy for them to destroy something that cost far to many points. Against any one else, it would be a pretty close call as to wether I would deploy it or not
