    Personally I don't like the regular LR. If you use it as a transport, you waste the firepower, and as a tankk you waste the transport. When I field a LR it is always a Crusader. I use it as an out and out assault transport. The weapons are designed to support assault units. For the same points I would rather field two Predators for the firepower. Or I would take the points for the LR and squad, and field two units in Rhinos. Just my opinion though. I have friends who regularly field two or more LRs in a battle. Whatever you find the most fun.

    As far as the Vindicator or Whirlwind, I would use the WW. The V is too short ranged most of the time, and whenever I face one, I just kill it before I get close. You could field two WW instead of a V and have much more firepower. Plus they are indirect fire.

    use a land raider to tempt your foe put a character in it and leave it towards the front of your force hull down then watch all the fire it draws away from your units.

    For firepower I like the predator better, give it lascannons and you got a tank which is better at tank hunting than land raider, for much fewer points. Unless you really want to transport termies the predator is a better choice (though LR is of course pretty cool ). And if you want to transport termies I'd use a crusader anyway.

    Using the Land Raiders &#39;fire control&#39; rule you can use a LR as both a Transport and a heavy tank.

    (Fire Control: If a land raider can not fire for any reason, it may still shoot but it counts as having BS2. When you have all twin-linked weapons, it is really not a problem.)

    I would also recommend the Vindicator. I have one but it has never fired a shot in battle. To me it is the supreme decoy. Have is sitting next to something of more importance and i guarantee that the enemy will never go after anything else. Once during a game, a Space wolf player, immobilized mine in the first round, but he had some scouts move in from the table edge right behind it and he spent the next two turns attacking a weapon that out of out of position and out of range. Had he ignoured it he could have gone after a fully functional Predetor Annihilator that was reaking havoc on his transports.

    For firepower, I&#39;d have to say the Predator... but one guy I play against fairly regularly (Speed Freek player) has his looted Land Raider with its 5+ to hit lascannon... and the twin-links can be infuriating <grins> So, my vote - the Predator all up, but for sheer irritation value (including its armour), you just have to get a Land Raider.

    Irritation isn&#39;t worth a 100 pts IMO, unless you really like the model or you want to use it as a Termies transport I&#39;d use a pred rather than a LR any time.
