Default Furioso Dreadnought or Baal Predator?

I am buying some new models and I want to get something mechanised. I currently only have the BA battleforce, scout snipers and Lemartes. In an army like this which would be more effective all-round, FD or BP? I need an answer quick as I'm buying them at some point today. (If it makes any difference, I'll be fighting Space Wolves almost exclusively).
Thanks.

IMO, Baal Pred. More survivable to LF rocketspam, and if you kit it out well (IMO, Asscans etc). BUT I DONT PLAY BA (I play Mechspam IG and Newb Smurfs), so just take my advice as a pointer (Just food for thought).

Nevermind, I figured it out. If I get the Dreadnought I can get a Sanguinary Guard too. Puppies beware!

I play my Furioso WAY more than my Baal. Pretty sure a TLAC/HB Baal is 10 points more than a HF Furioso. As far as modelling goes...in retrospect I will be buying a second dreadnought and making it DC and painting my blood talon arms black to accommodate power fists on the Furioso.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

I dont own a furioso but I have 2 baals that I use quite heavily - pretty survivable, good firepower, and can take a freaking flamestorm (if you so choose). Yeah.
