    well, my csm pred has an autocannon for main gun and lascannons in sponsons, i think it is a better configuration than twin linked lascannons and hvy bolter sponsons, my main opponent will be space wolves so there are not advantages to having bolters in sponsons like if i were playing IG or DE, basically, a troop heavy army like eldar, dark eldar, ig, and tyranids, that have weak saves that get auto pierced by bolters and anything more powerful, are the type of army that you would look to have more advantageous opportunities for bolters to wreak havoc, where as necrons or csms would be less vulnerable, and you could just rely on regular troops to shoot them, and use vehicle weapons for high strength choices

    The Destructor is not very good at all, the Auto cannon is rubbish.

    I personally use an autocannon with lascannons on the side. From personal experience, it&#39;s a great combo. I has the power to knock out about 5 men in one lucky hit and it has the lascannons to take care of any vehicle problems that you might have.

    whoever says an autocannon is rubbish is mad really...its strength 7 for crying out loud

    but go all lascannons, because you need anti-armour guns. If theres hoards of enemies you dont need a tank to kill &#39;em...you can assault them

    I&#39;ve fielded a Pred Annihilator in a Vanilla Army with Inducted GK, and a Destructor (auto/las variant).

    Both work, to be honest, it really depends on what you want them to do.

    For Pure AT, i love the Annihilator, but the destructor works as a halfway house between "pure" anti-troop variants and lets you have some AT as well.

    If its just Space Wolves, then a Las and Hvy Bolters seems to be the best bet.
    NOBODY expects the Holy Inquisition&#33;
    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&#39;ll come in again.

    i would say use a baal...but you kinda cant

    but if you had the funds i spose you could go for both a destructor and an annihilator...but thats only if your loaded i spose

    I still say go with the autocannon and the lascannon sides. You&#39;re then able to get the best of both worlds.
