What is better as a unit, a Dread of a Carnifex?
I've posted up my Dread list. I'm wanting either a Dread list or a Godziller Nid list, i'm leaning towards the Dreads. In my opinion a Dread is better than a Carnifex.
What are your views on this?
Carnifexs kick dread ass although they typically cost plenty more.
Hands down carnifex.
You have Wounds instead of AV. You have high toughness. You won't die in one shot, and you have much more variety in choices of weaponry and upgrades.
Carnifex definitely. Exactly what Murakhalir said. Plus, one on one, the carnifex will decimate a dreadnought, even a furioso dreadnought, in combat. Dreads are more versatile though.

A Carnifex with a pair of twin-linked Devourers has way better shooty than a Dreadnaught and will perform better in close combat. Of course you'll be sinking a lot more points into the Carnifex...
Even though i have a dread army, carnifexes are better.

I would rather a Carnifex any day over a dreadnought!
They are harder to take down, better at shooting and they are a hell of alot better in combat.
But dreadnoughts are awesome,but they just dont stack up to one of the meanest things in the game...
i see a pattern forming here...
almost 10 times outta 10 the carnifex will mince a dreadnought...the dread can have its uses though
for instance if a carnifex charges a squad of anything that is strength 4 or below, that squad has a (small) chance to kill it over the next few turns. They cant kill a dreadnought however
but in all honesty, even though they can be up to twice the price i would also go for a 'fex everytime
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
Carnifex is one of the few units in 40K that can laugh off a LasCannon shot. Dreads are no better than a tub of warm butter when it comes to LC's.
But I like Dreads more... dumb huh. Maybe it is the drop podding dreads that I like so much. If I could drop pod a CC Carnifex, I might like them a bit more.

I'de rather one Carnifex than two Dreadnoughts. A Carnifex could take on two and win.
