Welcome to Librarium Online!
People do you use dreds a lot? If so, how do u configure them? I need help coz I want to get a Dred (they're sooo cool) but Im in doubt about their survivability and their weaponry.
Thx for the help.
Drednoughts are sooo cool, I haven't read the new Space marine rules, but I hear 'Noughts can still pack a real punch for points, Assault cannon and CC weapon would be my best bet, good AP attacks there, and A lascannon can be useful for knocking out tanks and such. in CC almost nothing can stand against a Dreadnought, they're basically a fighting Champion with no LD value and huge armour plates- Got to get!

I prefer giving my dred a lascannon or ass cannon and missile launcher, as he is nice mobile firepower and can still stand against enemies in CC, but since he's so slow, i rarely use the DCCW and heavy flamer other than against CC armies, as they come to me. (I play Dark Angels)

If you want them to survive give them the venerable rule for 20 points and tank hunter(10pts) and the lascannon and keep the power claw.
With the venerable rule it will survive.
I use a dread with assault cannon and missile launcher and it never lets me down. Not only can it lay down some fire, but it can do it on the move making it a good choice for BA. Plus since its moving forward it can join an assault adding the 10 models needed to outnumber your opponent and make them run so you can cut them down.

lascannons and powerfist. I fought iron warriors yesterday and the dread killed a dreadnought and a pred annihilator...plus the venerable rules mean it wouldn't die
very useful, and as long as you can keep them out of sight they can dominate the shooting phase with luck. Very vulnerable to enemy shooting though
Never judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes...by that time they'll be a mile away, and have no shoes
I totally agree. Sending Dreads out into the open, especially against Tau, is a very bad idea. However, if you can bring them to bear along witht he rest of your army, you are in good shape. Also, their ability to ignore difficult terrain is good !

Dreadnoughts can't ignore difficult terrain their walkers, their treated like infantry in difficult terrain (aren't they?).Originally posted by TEUTONIC_KNIGHT@Jan 29 2005, 195

Any weapon system with a missle launcher is make a Dread a nice weapon platform, BUT if it gets in close combat it's str is only 6 and no longer instant death to most things.
A Dread needs a Power Claw to get str 10 attacks.
That being said I can field 6 Dreads in my Blood Angles army (and have). It just looks so nice to have 6 Dreads on the board at 1 time .. opponent cant pick what to shoot 1st ..
