    Experiences with venerable Dreads?

    I am looking at fielding a drop pod army in the near future, and I am considering having a couple of Venerable Dreads in Drop pods with Assault cannons, and heavyflamer. I am also considering taking either tank hunters or furious charge. Been playing for about 4 years now, but I have never really had the opportunity for fielding Dreads that are venerable. So I would like some feedback on people's experiences with them, and whether or not the extra points costs are worth it.

    Venerable Dreads are DEFINATELY worth it! Like you say, for 30pts, a furious charge Dreadnaught with re-rolls on the damage charts is a boon none can ignore.
    Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!

    only one dread can be venerable per Force Org Chart so you can't have 'a couple of venerable dreads', only one.

    Get one with TLLC & ML with Tank Hunters - c'est tres bien :yes:

    I am going to take the trait Heed the wisdom of the ancients along with Cleans and Purify. This will allow me to take three dreads as venerable.

    I must say, (and some people may find this unsporting) that the best use of Venerable I have yet seen is when I had my Dreadnought Assaulted by 2 Squads of Genestealers and some gaunts. The Genies caused 4 pens, I was dead venerable or not so I forced re-rolls to get a 6 causing an explosion which took 7 Genestealers and 5 gaunts with me.

    Venerable, better at exploding when you want it to, must come with the battle experiance.

    In films, the 'ard charecters always die in a blaze of glory and collateral dammage. Makes sense for Dreadnoughts.
