What is your opinion.
Back from a long adventure.
I think it depends on the situation.
Land Raiders are good, they can transport Terminators and such, they have a large number of weapons and they have a high armour value. However, when your opponent sees them, the usual response is "Omfg a LR, must kill." A similar response also when he sees what it is transporting. Thus, it becomes the centerpeice of the opponent's Las/Starcannon fireworks display. This can be used to your advantage as your sneak your force up to CC and massacre him, but that is a lot of points for a diversion. I don't use it, but that's because of my theme (no vehicles), so I'm just voicing my opinion. Besides, I'd rather have a Tactical Squad or two instead of that.
Itâ€™s a very expensive model to field, I think 2 predator destructors with lascannon sponsons would do much better on the field if you want a shooty firebase that can take allot of punishment. If you are aiming for an assaulty army and have allot of points the Land raider will surly be a nice option in the future.
Otherwise it surly depends on the situation and who you are up against.
I would not take a land raider against Eldar(bright lances) or Chaos Undivided who probably use Tank hunter veterans. I probably would think twice about using them against tyranids as well since carnifexes and the likes eat land raiders for breakfast.
I would take them against patron themed Chaos armies like Khorn and Nurgle since they donâ€™t have that much Heavy support. I think ill try my LR against my friend who plays orcs when he is ready to field 1500p.
well.. it surly depends like everything else.
they are either too expensive...or the monolith is too cheap...cos a monolith is cheaper...yet better...go figure
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
i usualy play big bttls and its come in handy when i need to get my HQ (raven guard with jump packs and lightning claws) up into cc i say yes.
I adopted a cute lil' superman fetus
from Fetusmart! Hooray fetus! </a>
Well as the TVR mean that you can't disembark/assault in the same turn, i guess we're going to see less of them fielded..especially as a couple of pred annihilators are more effective.
It does depend on which variant as well, to be honest.
for GK's - the Prometheus is a good choice.
The LRC is going to fall out of popularity would be my guess (unless people REALLY want troop transporters)
Standard LRC's might see use in some armies (Again, being a GK player, they add some much needed shootiness to the army)....
Its very dependant on situation, IMHO.
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.
To me it'd depend on the situation. If you needed to move your men to the front really fast and need some good fire power while your at it then go for it. It's also a pretty good distraction. You opponent will be focused on it and you can flank them with either other vehicles, termies, or some good cc guys.
the sight of a landraider on the battle field is enough reason to deploy them for me.
Well my experiance (and everyone i have personnaly talked two) is, like Flatfeet said, they say AAAAAAA! i scary land raider! Time for me to shoot if with every anti tank thing i got! And they dont have that many guns, only 5 shots if you can hit with everything. Thats not very much. And land raiders arn't that hard to kill, anything thats strength 9 or better, or star cannons or blasters. So i think there not that good, unless you playing deathwing and need to transport some terminators.
Back from a long adventure.
i think that whatever your force you should have a land raider crusader because a. they look cool B. they have a lot of fire power
