    After much thought and debate, I would go with the 2 dreads. The reasons are basically 2-fold:

    I wouldn't want to lose another guy out of the 14-man crusader squads unless you absolutely had to. I find 14 to be the minimum that I like to use. I don't think that you'll need more dedicated heavy infantry killing considering the 2 assault cannons you have in the HQ squad. Furthermore, you're still 1 point over in the list with the vindi. 2 dreads means that one of them will probably make it, and cause some damage up close, and will also provide some cover to the foot-slogging squads marching up the board. They both can shoot like mad, and cause general havoc with their ACs.

    Personally, I also like symmetry in my lists, so the 2 dreads are an obvious choice. Fluff-wise, I think it makes more sense, seeing as you have neophytes, initiates, terminators, and dreadnoughts in the list (all ranges of BTs), so it's kind of an infantry heavy list.
