    Transport choices

    I'm building a Crimson Fists army! Here's my command squad:

    Chapter Master Cortez (upgrade, baby)
    --Powerfist and Bolt Pistol
    --Iron Halo
    Reclusiarch
    2 Flamer Marines
    Company Champion
    Veteran Sergeant with Powerfist and Combat Shield
    4 Marines with Clubs

    Now here's my dilemma. I also have these units:

    5 Marines - 2 Meltaguns (mounted in Drop Pod)
    5 Marines - 2 Meltaguns (mounted in Drop Pod)
    Dreadnought - AC and Claw with HF (mounted in Drop Pod)

    Do I choose....

    1. Land Raider Prometheus
    ---4 Twin Linked Heavy Bolters
    ---Re-roll all Reserve Rolls

    or

    2. Land Raider Crusader
    ---More versatile firepower
    ---Less points

    I would go for the Land Raider Prometheus as its something different then the norm as long as your friends don't mind you useing something thats not in the codex. If you play a drop pod heavy list like you do you will find the re rolls a lot more useful then a Crusader as you don't really have any hard as nails assault units so the main use you would get out of a Crusader as a assault squad delivery transport is wasted.

    :yes: Go for the Prometheus . The 4 twin linke HB's are awsome. My regular opponent plays 'Nids and he dispairs when I roll this out. It goes very well with DP's because of its reserve reroll ability. As it is supposed to be a rare command vehicle I would use it sparingly this is in keeping with its purpose. Also I would advise taking a marine with a melta gun for some close range anti armour firepower and drop one flamer from the command squad,as the Prometheus has no anti armor capability. Good to see others using my favorite vehicle.

    I'd say go with the Prometheus. It would probably work better with you very close and personal style of playing. That way it is right there presenting as a massive target of opportunity (good luck for them taking it down), and keeping the role of the up in your face fire support.

    Although I use the standard Land Speeder, anyone who would say if he could use Prometheus, I would let him to...

    So if your friends/foes are ok with it... go with Prometheus!
    Thanks to all the people showing faith in me

    I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
