    Dark Angels-Tournament-1000pt

    Hi i would appreciate feedback on which of the two lists is the better, which basically comes down to a choice between the vindicator and the predator, and also on the two lists as a whole.

    List 1

    Hq-Chaplain [T.Honours, J.Pack, B.Pistol, F.Grenades] = 122

    Elite-Dreadnought [A.Cannon, D.C.C.Weapon, E.Armour] = 110

    Troop-Tactical Squad [x6, Lascannon, P.Gun] = 115

    Troop-Tactical Squad [x6, Lascannon, P.Gun] = 115

    Troop-Tactical Squad [x6 M.Launcher, Flamer] = 106

    Fast Attack-Ravenwing Landspeeder [A.Cannon, H.Bolter] = 80

    Fast Attack-Assault Squad [x8, T.Honours, Stubborn, P.Fist, 2 x P.Pistol] = 221

    Heavy Support-Vindicator [E.Armour] = 130

    Total = 999

    List 2

    Hq-Chaplain [T.Honours, J.Pack, B.Pistol, F.Grenades] = 122

    Elite-Dreadnought [A.Cannon, D.C.C.Weapon, E.Armour] = 110

    Troop-Tactical Squad [x6, Lascannon, P.Gun] = 115

    Troop-Tactical Squad [x6, Lascannon, P.Gun] = 115

    Troop-Tactical Squad [x6 M.Launcher] = 100

    Fast Attack-Ravenwing Landspeeder [A.Cannon, H.Bolter] = 80

    Fast Attack-Assault Squad [x8, T.Honours, Stubborn, P.Fist, 2 x P.Pistol] = 221

    Heavy Support-Predator Annihilator [H.Bolter S.Sponsons, E.Armour] = 135

    Total = 998

    Instead of using a tank, take a dev squad, 4 ML 4 bolters.

    Youll need to ditch the ML troop squad to do it. Peace

    If you know you are facing armor i would go with teh second list. The vindicator may give the opponent puase, but only untill they shoot it until it dies. In the thread title, does that mean that you are going to a tournament with only DA? I think that means that you are using DA in a tourny, but it helps to be sure.

    *i agree with everyhting forge said*

    Hi thanks for the responses, in answer to your question i am using the list (which is dark angels) in a tournament so i will be facing a variety of armies.

    I would rather avoid using devestators in the list (even though they would probably be more effective) as i am going to expand this 1000pts into 1500pts eventually and i will definately want to use some tanks in that, so i need to start putting tanks into the list at this point to make sure i have enough when i get to 1500pts.

    If i included devestators now, its unlikely i could include more than one tank in the next 500pts, so it would be isolated.

    So for heavy support the choice is really the predator or the vindicator, im just not sure which would be most effective as the sole tank at this points level. The vindicator seems like more of a gamble to me in that it could be horrible or do nothing at all.

    Which tank would you suggest?

    At 1000pts people may expect to face a tank or two, but they wont have a lot of AT(unless they are using tau and broadsides, most never leave home without those). I would use the pred, it has good AT and anti infantry. That way your tank doens't turn into a big huge target in larger games. Vinicators, with their cruel pie plates of death, are big targets that people like to shoot. However they are very good at what they do, which is scare people and kill things. Hope i helped.
