Your Favorite Land Raider?
« on: September 23, 2015, 01:05:35 PM »
It's well known I have a Land Raider fetish, playing them in both my loyalist- Space Marines, Grey Knights and traitor- Chaos Space Marine lists.

Love the narrative.

Love zooming them forward, watching stuff bounce off them, and then having termies pour out. (In theory)

SO much glory to earn with this model.

Tactics aside, if you play Space Marines/CSM and play a Land Raider what kind do you take?

+1 bonus points if you post a pic of your Land Raider.
Though my men may sleep, and my ships rest at anchor, my foes know full well that big guns never tire...

Look on my works ye mighty, and despair...

I built mine several years ago. And not to STC sects.

I like the Godhammer the most. it's a classic.
I built three like this but one of them met with an ork kill saw in the pitts.
But it's not all bad news. the second one survived and was refitted last month as a redeemer.
I'd like one of each pattern.

The Redeemer and the Hyperios get the most use for me.  The Helios is perfect for carrying a small Command Squad and Captain.  A strong unit providing a bit of a variety of support.  Depending on the rules played in the gaming group, I might run Helios instead.  A Whirlwind Missile Launcher and the Lascannons, still with Command Squad inside.  Very useful.

But a Redeemer has been doing me very well lately.  Very strong options at close range, and enough room inside to be hiding a deadly surprise.  Land Raiders in general haven't been doing well, but they are fun units anyway.  Anyone with half a mind and the appropriate army will kill a Raider of any kind just so the Assault unit inside has to walk and be useless.  Doesn't stop me from loading them up with Terminators though.

In my Chaos force I play classic Land Raider, Twinlink Lascannons and Heavy Bolter.

I have one for Nurgle and one for Khorne. Here the one for Nurgle:

Spartan assault tank count? If so that's my favorite.

Can't upload a current pic, my land raider is a crusader. I love a metal box with just a bunch of guns on it. Also transport capacity is really important to me.
Don't try making a unit unkillable. its a waste of time and the dice gods laugh at you for wasting your time. Dedicate a unit to a job and make sure it does it til it's either dead or running.

I guess I'm a fan of the standard load out. But damn, I've lost count of the number of difficult terrain checks that immobilize me. What I wouldn't give for a dozen blade you could assault ramp over...

I'm so gun shy of those 1's that my land raider usually spends turns 1-3 sitting back as a cannon platform.

MY COUNTRY FOR A MOTHERSLOTTING DOZER BLADE!! Wonder why GW sought fit to take dozer blades away from land raiders. I've learned an easy enough work around is a techmarine with full harness or make it an Iron Hands vehicle.

Poor loyalists.  Chaos still remembers how to put spikes on the front of an Assault Ramp.  Dozed Blades for everyone!  And Dirge Casters too for that matter.

Do YOU remember when loyalists could put dozer blades on Land Raiders? Peppridge Farm remembers...
