I am thinking of adding a new tank yo my army and i was interested in what you thouygh woulc be best i havent used any of theses tanks before i have see the power of a st10 ap 2 pie plate blast before and i hasve seen a baal class rip though squads like a hot knife though butter but i was wondreing what expirance yous have had with them
this is how i would equipt them
vindicatot extra armour smoke luanchers and powerof the machune sprit 163
baal class extra armour smoke launchers and power of the machine spirit 158

They're completely different vehicles, for completely different roles. A twin-linked Assault Cannon can't be compared to a Demolisher Cannon. It depends on what you're fighting.

Mech Tau Cadre: 2000 points, needs paint and magnets.
Paladins of Avalon (SW):-1500 points, needs paint.
Although generally, I'd take the Baal, Its an awsome tank that can easily go from hunting troops to taking on on light vehicles(or any vehicles if your feelin' lucky!)
And Although The Vinidicator can be dangerous, its a hit and miss thing as I learned in my last game.
The vindicator's Shot kept scattering off my squad, then I stunned it, and finnally blew it up from the side.
So IMO, take the Baal, its a funa nd unique tank you don't see everyday!
i was thinking more about tournys i alredy have 2 predators with lascannons and a whirlwind i am thinking of getting one for a tournys so i dont know what i would be against

Go for the Baal.Its an awesome piece of machinary.You have to get pretty close in order to use the Vindicator and well yes you have to get close with the Baal to use its TW ACs but you have the option if you want to to stay back and fire the HBs.The Baal can rip through squads like theres no tommorow.It can have up to 12 shots per turn and has the potential to devastate enemy infantry.
Go the Baal!
I agree with Tycho on this one. The Baal is an awesome tank that you don't see everyday. Use it to pin down and suppress any enemy troops while u advance your own.

I would go for the baal, The vindicator ussually misses :hmm:

Blue wave, can you please put a little more effort into your posts instead of padding your post count with 1 liners.

Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:
1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant
2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers
3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC
I'm assuming your playing using the BA rules if your using the Baal preditor. Tl'd assault cannons are pretty good- each miss can become a rend, and I think you can take HB, too. This tank is pretty much insta-win against a non-3+ save army, and even against a 3+ sv army, should still do well. The vindicator, however, seems to be better against either extremey tough things (like fexes, terms, etc), large units (so it won't miss) and tanks. Odds are, though, you will have anti-tank and anti-tough thing stuff already, so I'd say take the baal pred because the vindicator probably won't hit much more then a baal against light infantry, and the baal has the potential to deal out 4 insta-wounds to anything without an inv save. Also, the baal has better range, so its more useful against fast things that might not let you get a shot at 24".

The excepted logic on the Vindicator is it's used as much, if not more to sych out your opponent and denigh them a line of advance. Where as the Baal is much more the assualt support vehicle. I guess it depends on what your trying to do with it.
