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 dont think you can have a VEN Dreadnought in your army. im not sure if black templars have there own dreadnought!
I'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.
Ze titles yez...

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's. I don't like taking terminators and BT's don't really use them, too slow, so ill get a dread.
i can understand why you want a dread but what is this about not liking termis.
ME dont understand :blink:
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'd have to do a conversion unless you can find one in mail order but it shouldn'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've used it in several games. I haven't lost the Dread yet!
