    GAH, ok it really depends on how your army is structured, BA already suffer from expensive units (DC, honour guard, veterans) any of these would go well with an LRC, but the reall problem is the expense of one of these uber assault units in an LRC means that anything with a STR8 or higher weapon is gonna shoot it, this could wipe out 700 points in one shot, personnaly I think the best thing a BA player can do with an LRC is admire it but dont touch

    The only thing that needs a LRC is a terminator assault squad. As a Blood Angels player, I'd avoid terminators on general principle, since losing one of those to the death company (or more!) is a hit better off avoided.

    Probably your best bet is putting the DC in it. It's more secure than slogging it with jump packs, in a sense, and it's got enough space to make sure you won't get the problem that happens when you normally take DC in a transport - which is that you get too many DC and can't fit them in. That actually happens, sometimes.

    Tactical Marines aren't worth it, command squads don't need it, and Terminators are too risky for it. So, just plug the suicide troops in the metal coffin and away you go.

    Back when I was a total noob, I had a 8-man terminator assault squad with an LRC in a 1500 game against Ravenwing.

    On the second turn, he moved a bike squad around all the access points to prevent me from disembarking, and then he blew it up with multi-meltas.

    Everyone inside died, because of the bikers around the exits.

    Which came to 664 pts of my list gone.

    That was when I started to get bikes.

    And that is entirely my point, anything you want to put in an LRC is gonna be some uber assult thing, and is gonna cost a lot of points, add to this the cost of the LRC and you have a big big points baloon just waiting to be popped.

    The impact lessens in larger armies, but I would still not do it.

    If I play with BA I either put just a cheap scout squad in it for kicks heh.. Yeah sometimes I infiltrate them, but there are times when infiltration doesnt help (IE when you need a coordinated assault).. Often I dont have anything else worth putting inside

    or I put a tactical squad inside for some surprise firepower.. Remember, it's better to shoot your opponent to death than assault since they dont get to hit back..

    If I use a crusader I run it up with one of the mentioned squads with a DC + assault squad following.. It makes for a very strong charge
