    which do you think is better for heavy support, a Predator Annihilator or a Venerable Dreadnought (twin lascannons and missiles). Im asking cause i have an Annihilator for my BT's and im thinking of getting a Venerable Dread as well.

    first of all i am pretty sure venerable dreads are only for space wolves, i think you can have some other sort of dreadnaught

    I&#39;m pretty sure he knows that...
    Anyway, your choice depends on what kind of tacktic you play...
    Ofcourse the dreadnought may move up to full movment and still get to fire 2 weapons, then again the predator may move up to the double length... but then again only fire one weapon...

    woops, sorry for the confusion, I got the names for the dreads mixxed up, I just mean twin linked lascannons and missile launcher, forget the Venerable mumbo jumbo.

    If you go for firepower, the Annihilator is definately the better choice: both have a twin lascannon, but where the dread has a single missile launcher the pred has 2 lascannons. Predators also have better front armour. But remember: preds are heavy, dreads elites.

    yeah I think I will get a dreadnought, Im still not sure what weapons to put on it, probably lascannons and missiles cause I need a little more tank killing power for my BT&#39;s. I don&#39;t like taking terminators and BT&#39;s don&#39;t really use them, too slow, so ill get a dread.

    I have a squad of terminators and I use them sometimes but I like to get my troops in and out quickly, I guess I could get a new land raider and load it with assault termies.

    If you want to make it better at tank killing then give it a multi-melta. You&#39;d have to do a conversion unless you can find one in mail order but it shouldn&#39;t be that hard. Otherwise you can take off the missile launchers and put on a powerfist and smoke launchers. I know this probably sounds stupid, but if you play careful and use terrain wisely then you can easily get close enough to a tank to use it. I took a Land Raider out with this configuration and I&#39;ve used it in several games. I haven&#39;t lost the Dread yet&#33;
