Although the Model isn't that great (imo), I think it would be of benefit to DH as far as AT duties go, don't you think.
All those Lascannons - I mean you would have to field Multiple Dreads to get the same amount. Mind you, they can target different enemy units so I'm not so sure now, unless the Terminus has different rules.
The Terminus pattern raider does not have me very excited. It's essentially just a Titan-killer. Practically, for the average 40K game, it really isn't much of an asset. In order to fire all those lascannons, you have to remain absolutely motionless, which really hurts its usefulness as a generic anti-armour vehicle.
You're still better off taking dreads in your 40K lists for anti-armour. Too early to say how nicely the terminus raider might (not) work for Apocalypse....
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.

Just out of curiosity is there an image of this Land Raider anywhere's?
Legion Of Everblight: Abyslonia
Protectorate of Menoth: Grand Exemplar Kreoss
A regular Land Raider should be fine enough for all you lascannon needs, but it does look sweet. I prefer Land Raiders to Dreads for anti-tank anyway...
as much as the terminus would be nice for anti tank, they can only fire at one target, so you fry a tank a turn, or up to 5 guys a turn. i think that its too many eggs in one basket. having 3 dreads with lascannons gives you more shots to take at different targets, and gives you opponent more targets to shoot at, instead of concentrating at something.
personally i think that they should make a land raider thats built for Grey knights by Grey knights. it should be somewhat like the crusader but with some variants. instead of hurricaine bolters, you get twin linked psycannons at the side. you keep the assault cannons, but instead of the melta, we should get something that auto wounds daemons on 2+, against anything else on a 4+, no save, and against vehicles, you roll a dice, on a 3-4 glancing hit, on a 5-6 penetrating hit. range 36. something like that would be nice. though it would be overpowered in a sence, because your firing 10 S 6 AP 4 shots that get rerolls to hit, and essentialy a wraithcannon but with longer range. this is just an idea, but it would be fun, cause then, it would be very usful if your against chaos, but if against anything else, its not as good, but its still does the job. all i can say is that genestealers will have something to cry about if this comes true
Holy goodness, that thing looks goofy! It's like someone decided how many lascannons could physically fit on a Land Raider as a joke. And really, if you look at the firing arcs of the TLLC's, they're in the back, and so can't fire at the same target, or anything at 12 o'clock. Seems like this thing would do even worse than a regular Land Raider at most everything. The only possible exception I can see is if they allowed some sort of multi-targeting scheme with this, so that you could utilize all of them. And even then, as number6 pointed out, it'll have to remain completely stationary to use more than one of the cannons.
Seems like a case of 'good idea, poor execution' to me.

I have to agree with everybody, this isn't a Grey Knights vehicle (though Unlike Hasten, I kind of like it). The Crusader is the closest thing to GK; it shoots on the move and is meant to close into assault range...
If I could make a Land Raider for my Grey Knights, I would do a Hull-Mounted Twin-Linked Heavy Bolter with 2 Twin-Linked Assault Cannon Sponsons. All defensive weapons, but 2 Assault Cannons would be fairly decent at taking out armor if it needed to (despite the 24 Inches, however). Of coarse, there would be the Frag Launchers, PotMS, Extra Armor, and why not give it Psycannon Bolts? That would be a nice fluffy (probably very expensive as most things GK are) Grey Knights Land Raider.
On a completely off-topic comment: The Baneblade looks sweet, but even more importantly are those SM Commander models. They would make Awesome Grey Knights Grand Masters!!! The one with the Bolter could easily be holding a Psycannon, the Storm Shield one, the Daemonhammer guy, The one holding his Helmet is a vanilla GM... great models, can't wait to get my hands on one of them!

Fantasy: Daemons (Angels), 40k: Black Templars
With the VDR's available for Apocalypse we can all have fun making GKish LR's and Dreads.
I'm looking forward to Apocalypse so I can field my entire 4000 points of Models.
