i just my 1st predator for my space marines
im adding storm bolter and heavy bolters to it, now my question is, what main gun do i put on the tank it seems to have a choice between a lascannon and an auto cannon, so which do i put on?
What army will you be fighting most? Are you trying to make it less points? what other units are in you're army?
Personnaly i would go with an autocannon because I don't have any in my army and I just like the looks of it
my points are maxed out i mean phsysically building the predator i have a storm bolter and a heavy bolter, but it seems i need to add 1 of the guns on the turret, which one do i put on?
I'd seriously consider looking at neodymium magnets. Both guns have their uses! Magnets allow you to adapt to the situation.
Xpyre35 made a good tutorial here that shows you how to do it:
If points are a concern the auto cannon is just fine. If you really need to glue it now.
I did not start magnetizing my force from the beginning. Now I wish I did cause I'm currently pulling stuff apart to get all those options.
You really can't go wrong with the standard Destructor pattern. (Autocannon, w/ Hvy bolter sponsons). And its the cheaper of the two.
But the load out on the predator is primarily determined by what you are going to use it for. If you are planning on shredding infantry, the Autocannon and Hvy Bolter sponsons are your better choice.
If you are planning on blowing up tanks with it, then the full Lascannon load out is the way to go.
Typically you'll want to avoid making it multi-purpose as it lessens the effectiveness of it during the game. By reducing the qualified firepower for each of its respective uses.
Also, as Aradai so kindly mentioned, I have a tutorial for mounting everything via magnets, that way its not ever a permanent choice.
