I'd go with a Dreadnought as the Purgation Squads arent reall capable of dealing with tanks and such. A Dreadnought will be able to at least pse a threat =P . And everywhere I look, everyone advices me to get one =) . But thats just my 2 cents.
I'd get both, but priority wise, I'd say get the Dread first.
A: Its a fire magnet, you wouldn't believe the firepower people will pump into these things trying to stop it.
B: Lascannon is very, very useful for taking out tanks.
C:Its brutal in H2H.
D: It looks badass.
Purge squads are very nice, don't get me wrong, so very useful against troops. But they don't have the strength to take out anything higher then 12 armour and sometimes you need that alot more then just more bolter fire.
Also, remember you can have 5 Incins/Psycannons in a purge squad, four regular troopers plus the Justicar!
Most people keep their heavy tanks in the back lines while their troops advance and blow the shiz out of you. Im not experienced in daemonhunters yet but id say get a squad of 6 grey knights for fast attack. 2 w/ incinerators and a justicar w/ meltabombs. As most tanks like to stay and shoot, you will autohit for the meltabomb, get a AP between 10 and 20, and most tanks have armour of around 11, so unless your rolling straight ones, then your good. After you kill tank, you can use it as cover. If the infantry unit is far away, then you can keep killling tanks in the back line. If infantry units are close, go for close combat. Eh i hope this helps i guess.
