    i was using a dreadnought for the ...lost count...but i have raelised a dreadnought has 2 weapons on it right. a land raider has 3 now when you think of it people are more scared of a landraider (even with out troops inside) than they would be a dreadnought. so whats so good about a dreadought? i mean if you put a assault cannon and missile launcehr on it wow some damage can be done but that s what a land raider can do so i am asking you why are you so afraid of a land raider?

    P.S. Blood angels rule, the anger lets us ignore wounds ...hehehe

    The model itself seems to be a huge stigma to the beast as well. Lots of people are scared of a tank 3 times the size of most others but no-one cares about a larger marine.

    You didn't mean you thought the dread had more firepower than the land raider... right? :huh:

    Because it doesn't!

    i meant rex it has almost as much fire power...almost....well the space marine tanks are to small or the space marine models are to big because look at them stand next to the tank in the codex and then in real life...hello wrong scale!!!

    People are scared of Land Raiders because while it IS possiblle it will fall to a random lascannon or what not, in most cases you will need to concentrate your fire on it.

    Some armies have more then enough firepower to deal with them and will laugh at you when you field one. On the other hand there are some armies that will have an incredibly difficult time taking out the raider.

    Depends who you are playing.

    you not scared of dreads? for the price of about one LRC. i can have two deepstriking dreads w/ assault cannnos and dccw/Hflame.



    personally i'd rather take the 2 DS dreads. but perhaps that's because i've seen too much AV14 bite the dust... (barring the monolith.. .cause that thing is scary).

    I would have to say dreads are way more effective. I mean what's so good about a 250 point fire magnet? Go with the dreads. Especially the ones with plasma. :wub:

    You didn't mean you thought the dread had more firepower than the land raider... right? huh.gif

    Because it doesn't!
    A normal landraider has the same amount of weapons as a dread (if you take a ccw). And, I think that a dread can have more shots if you give it an assault cannon. Anyways, with it's template and blast weapons dreads can take out more troops. So, I would have to say that a dread can have quite a bit of fire power too!

    Go dreads! ^_^

    a dread with assault cannon, missle launcher, ven status, and tank hunter; is pretty much a land raider but 100pts less.
    if you lose a landraider in any size battle,m its a heavy loss sice you just lost a heavy support option. with the dread on the other hand, you could have as many as 6 at the cost of 3 land raiders and easily be able to outgun your enemy...

    why do some people put termies in lr or crusaders?
