I'm looking for a little bit more anti-tank in my army. I've currently got 150 points left over to spend on either of the following. (P.S I would've done a forum search but it's being painfully slow, so sorry if this has been brought up before!)
Anyway, I'm looking at one of the two following units to add a bit more anti-tank weaponry to my army. The choice is between;
Dreadnought with Twin Linked Lascannon, and Missile Launcher
Land Speeder Tornado with Heavy Flamer and Multi-Melta
Obviously I could take a second Land Speeder and have 10 points left over, should I choose the second choice.
I'm just really stuck between the two. I only have 150 points remaining so I can't afford a Predator with Lascannon and Las sponsons, so it's come down to the two choices mentioned above.
Any help would be greatly appreciated guys .
I would go for the dread. Longer range and a lot harder to kill.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
Wrong loadout for the Dred. Go with 2 x Twin-Linked autocannons to kill light armor. It's cheaper too.
That said, I'd go with the Speeders. They're decent at anti-armor, and can also be used to distract your opponent or block his movement.

The Speeders are solid choices. You could also take a look at Typhoon Speeders, which give you a lot more long range flexibility.
If you roll with the Dread though, I suggest dropping the missile launcher in favour of a DCCW with a Heavy Flamer. The DCCW makes dreads kinda scary in close combat, and lets them take apart tanks quite quickly. The Heavy Flamer gives them quite a bit of anti-infantry punch, and lets to clear nasty things out of cover.
I second Watchwood. The main utility of a Dreadnought is its capacity for both ranged and close combat; if all you want is a gun platform then the Landspeeder is the better choice.

2 landspeeders, preferrably as separate squads (can shoot different targets). Personally, I run 2 landspeeders, both with multimeltas, one with an assault cannon as well (rending). Run them up in cover or just flat out, then bust up a tank or 2 and get toasted.
If you go in with the mindset that they're more suicide units (imo), I feel much better about getting in close to the enemy to blast out their tanks.
