Neither.


One is an Armoured Support Vehicle, the other is a pyro-tank. Both have completely different roles to fill.

If you want this question answering, you need to tell us what it is you plan to do with your army.

Us it alone with a Chimrea with 2 flamer 2melta command squad, HellHound, Leman Russ or Demolisher along with 2 sentianals. Have my Infantry protect my basilisks and then attluy use my movment phase with my tanks. Then nuke them.

Im finshing my 2000 point list and want 500 points of armor that I am lacking. I already have the 1 hellhound and three heavy in my 1500 point list.

85 Chimrea
Muilty Laser
Hull Heavy Bolter

72 Command
2melta
2flamer

Sentianal 45
Muilty Laser

Sentianal 45
Muilty Laser

247

I may scratch the extra command squad. Dont realy need them. It would just split my 2 troops of 40 to 3 troops of 30 30 20.

I don't think you can have an extra command platoon. The unit entry says one command platoon not 0-1 or 1+ :'(

unless you're talking apocolipse that is.

What I mean is I have an Hq Command.

Troop 1 OR Troop1
Command Command
S1 S1
S2 S2
S3 S3
S4 Troop2
Command
S1
Troop2 S2
Command S3
S1 Troop3
S2 Command in Chimera
S3 S1
S4 S2

All I would do is divide up these squads to give me an extra Command squad that I can dump in a Chimara and torch things with. I hope this is easyer to understand.

Okay... Fix spelling and grammar of your posts.

Your title is a prefect example. I'll bold all of the mistakes and then re-write it as I want to see it next time.

Whats better, Chimera or Hell Hound?


And please do not ask the same question only using different units in two different topics. Make only one. The Modify post button is there for a reason.

It depends on what your looking for. If your Doctrin has mechanized untis then Chemira. If you like to light your enemy into ashs then the Hellhound is right for you > >
