Just an opinion question, If I were going to do a three way fight between Eldar, Tau and my space marines, should I bring a squad of termies or use thos points to get two dreadnoughts?
well wats your army list at the moment and what is your oppenents army config?
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.

my army list idnt done yet, so i have no specifics and I dont know what they are bringing but essentially I have,
librarian, Or termie chaplain if i bring the terminators
2 squads of 8 tactical units
1 squad of scout snipers
rhino for one tactical squad
(if there are points) 8 assault marines
then i wanted to know, should i bring the terminators, or use their points to bring two dreadnoughts?
I would go with a unit of termies, they're usually tougher than Dreads, and you already have 2 vehicles (well, I guess 3 if you count the Rhino).
If you play an objective game, you can DS the Termies close to the objective and hold it for at least as long as you need for the rest of your army to reach it, but I wouldn't be surprised if they lasted the entire game (I'm not sure if this is actually usefull to you, but I am playing a lot more King of the Hill games recently)
The Tau are really good at taking out Vehicles (at least when I play against them), one lucky hit against a Dread results in its death, wheras a good hit against a Terminater squad means that one Terminater is dead...not really as big of a concequence.
I don't really have much experience against the Eldar...so I cant really give you an oppinion on that front.
On second thought, yes I can. Eldar are fragile, if your opponent uses guardiens, terminaters would decimate the unit with no problem, in one turn if you're lucky. Aspect warriors would generally still get their 4+ saves though (unless you shoot them with an Assault Cannon)
Watch out for Plasma weapons from the Tau, and Power weapons from the Eldar (If he knows your useing SM's I can only assume that he's going to have a unit full of power weaps)
So...I personally would go with Termies, although I do want to hear an argument for useing Dreadnaughts, mostly because I don't really have any experience with them.
BTW I play Deathwing....so I'm REALLY biased towards Termies.
I would also say terminators. They tend to last longer and if they have the 2 assault cannons, can have as much fire power as the 2 dreads. However i am also bised towards terminators as i usualy field them over almost anything.
PS i would always take the 2 assault cannons.
