    Neither.

    NEVER use a Land Raider/Land Raider Crusader in an army under 1500 points. Same goes for a GM.

    Usually LR or LRC is great in games of 2000 and higher. At 1500 your army wil be be lacking as is.

    don&#39;t tell me your seriuos about putting a LR in a 100pts battle,

    just get your mind back together cause this will never work, you&#39;ll lose 1/4 of your points to a single vehicle that can easily be taken out.

    reserve them for 2000pts games or higher

    I will have to go to the general idea that a LR&copy; in 1,000 pts game is a bad idea but in larger games on a Grey Knights army I&#39;ll have to go for the Land Raider.

    I very much like the Crusader variant (Having Black Templars myself) but bolt weapons is something you should never lack off in a GK army, in my opinion you much more need the lascannons than the bolters...

    As has been said, neither one in a 1000pts battle, but in larger games it&#39;s fun to use.
    Since the only long range anti tank weapons Daemonhunters have avaiable is on land raiders and dreadnaughts you should kling on to the few you have.
    I usually use my Land Raider as a transport for one full squad of GK&#39;s, and since you can&#39;t have more then 10 in one squad it doesn&#39;t matter that the Crusader has more space.

    Even though you can use a plentifull amount of meltabombs and perhaps a chainfist on your terminators they require base-to-base contact and monoliths are only damaged on a roll of 6. Sure you can ignore it but it&#39;s fun to blow appart&#33;

    The only time I might consider using a crusader would be if I wanted to transport my Terminator HQ in it, but since they can (and should) teleport there isn&#39;t really any good use for it.

    LR are not supporting fire vehicles (IMO). place a GM w/ termies in a crusader and get them in cc as soon as possible. the hurricane bolters will always be able to fire, plus getting close is perfect, seeing as how you have a multi-melta on the tank. you can move 6 in, drop your cargo close the the enemy, unleash the assault cannons, bolters, and Multimelta, then charge (w/ 4 ed rules). lascannons are helpful and needed in a daemonhunters army, but 250 points for 2 twinlinked lascannons is not worth it to me.

    Land Raider

    In 1000pt you can play a GM with great success and a LR&copy; if you want. It&#39;s risky, but fun.

    LRC or LR, tough call really. I like the LR simply because it adds anti-tank. I know the LRC is great for assault, but it&#39;s just more bolters.

    I think you can do this, I would deep strike the terms and put a 8 man GK squad in the LR, preferable one with an incinerator. That way at least they won&#39;t be walking. The other squad will be walking so make it a 10 man squad (preferable with two psycannons). That essentially gives you two fast attack squads and one foot slogger.
