I'm thinking about getiing a predator for my black templar army but friend says there useless for BT. i dont think so, so im asking you. wat do u think?
I woudnt say a predator is useless. Now, I will be honest about not knowing the BT's rules 100% but you dont get access to devistators do you? If that is right then I would say go for a Predator but don't soup it up too much. If its the only Armour on the field it will draw all antitank fire and if you pump loads of points into it they can be lost on one unlucky roll.
On the other hand, its your army and I think you should build it how you want. If you want a Pred, get one. Don't let the composition of your army be based on other peoples perception of units
Alright. one of the main race ill be playing is Necrons. i only have three friends hoo play 40k where i live they are necrons, sm, and tau. i plan on an anihilator wit H.bolter sponsons cuz i need some lascannons on the field. Also im not sure if i should put a las or an assult cannon on my dread. yes,no?
Dont glue any arms onto your dreadnought. Theres no ned to really. For the pred. I dont find much use for it bc of the way i play, but an annnilator is good anti-tank/broadside guy, if it can go first.

An Anihilator with HB sponsors is mixed in its rolls so its very adaptable. The Lascannon can take out vehicles and the HB;s can then start taking out troop squads once all lascanon worthy targets are gone.Originally posted by B_riceFoo@Jan 8 2005, 17:33

As for the Dread, what did you want it to do. If you stick it at the back then I would say a Lascannon would be better on the dread. Perhaps a Lascannon + Missile Launcher to provide fire support whilst the Pred rolls up to the enemy alongside the troops.
If you charge the Dread into the front lines, then a Assault Cannon to mow down troops before the dread charges into combat with them to rip em apart.
here is my vision. I'm a BT player to and I would take a predator destructor with HB as side sponsors. It's a lot cheaper that de annihitor and it attracks in some way less fire. with the points you spare you can buy some nice upgrades or another space marine.
I'm also thinking about to use a couple of landspeeders with multi-melta.

I play templars and use an Annihilator w/ lascannons. Good old Venator has many notches on his barrel. I also use 2 Dreadnoughts, one lascannon and missile launcher, and one assault cannon and power fist. But we play 1850 points and you can include higher priced stuff in bigger games, mixed with alot of regular troops.
In think in smaller games I would use either a Dreadnought w/lascannon and powerfist or the Annihilator w/heavy bolters.
And don't glue on your Dreadnought arms. They can be pushed on and need no glue. I glued them on my first dread and really wish I hadn't now.
Dead or Alive, you are coming with me.
