    Not really, unless you use it to transport deathwing terminators. Necron will love to play against you and nids will cry.

    It very much depends on what pointage of game your playing.

    In my opinion, unless you have a reason, you shouldn't really be taking it in 1.5k or less.
    in 2k, maybe, depending on the army your facing and what tactic you might want to employ.

    To be quite honest, Im one for using the points to take two Preds myself, armed with with TL lascannons OR Autocannon, with Hvy.Bolter Sponsons.

    I like to use a Land Radier mainly because it looks so cool and intimidating, it is also a good fire magnet and the best way to get your assault termies where they belong.
    However, compared to the Monolith it is badly spent pts... darn Necrons.

    but then again the landraider model is so cool!! i use it against everything in 1750+

    but last tuesday i remember me and a friend were having a SM vs SM and the first turn he makes my landraider explode and in my turn i blew up his land raider ;D it is fun to destroy your oponents LR but i hate it when mine is!!

    IMO the LRC is the way to go!! +15 pts for frag grenades the turn they charge out of the LRC, "built int extra armpour, larger transport capacity, twin linked ass cannon!! <3

    Heres my take on this:

    Do you have FUN playing with the Land Raider?

    If you do, use it! The worst that can happen is you lose!

    To put it simply, most answers you will get to this question are subjective (as opposed to objective).

    Young and new players see LRs and go WOW! they get "Toys for the boys" Sysndrom and get one.

    Older, more experianced heads are less inclined, they identify landraiders as a riskey stratergy, reasoning being:

    Landraiders are powerful - they can take hits and they can keep dishing it out, but you pay for it, (points) and it is a single mini, which, against an experianced opponent, can be dealt with with a single shot

    The risk dimishes as the size of your army goes up (in 1000 points you risk loosing 1/4 of your army, however in 3000 points, it is only 1/12) so generally, you will get comments like Toastees.

    Equally it depends on your opponents army as to how risky it is, pretty much anything, including the standard troop sidearm in a necron army can take down an LR, so the risk is higher

    But there are counter arguements, typically death wing commanders will have an LR or an LRC weather they use it or not.

    So take your pick, personnaly I am with Toastee, in 1500 points, unless I am using my deathwing, then no, I would rather have pred anihs

    I agree Predator Anhialators or Devastator Squads provide more bang for your buck.

    The main Problem I have with the LR is that as a Transport and a MBT if you use it either way you do not fully utilise its abilities. From this perspective the LRC is superior, a pure transport wth defensive weapons.

    However for 1/4 of 1000pts is alot for an armour 14 vehicle, a Russ costs up to 75pts less has the same armour on the front and a decent splatty gun.

    A Chaos Predator Anhialator with TLLC, sponson LC and mutated hull has the same armour and more firepower for again 75pts less.

    I mostly fight IG in 1500pt-2000pt games, and I sit back and shoot its lascannons at the Leman Russes.
