Predator configuration.

What is the best way to equip a SM Pred?
Is it better to have more shots at lower strength or less with higher strength?
I'm thinking that I should leave the autocannon and add lascannon sponsons.
Ideas?

DON'T MIX WEAPONS! If you do you are wasting potential and points. Heavy bolters for horde, Lascannons for anti-armour and MC hunting.

Even though it may be a tad over priced I like Predators with Lascannons.

I run them with the single Twin-Linked Lascannon. AV13 long range anti-light tank. Works well, and is mobile, unlike every other variant, so you can move 6" and still work you fire-support.

I would personally NEVER take Lascannon sponsons, it's WAY too expensive.
I'd either take Autocannon/HB sponsons (great horde killer), or TL Lascannon and a hunter killer (for that extra punch when you need it).

I'd take the twin-lascannon turret, and thats it, maybe a pintle storm bolter at the very most, that way I could still move the useless piece of junk.

otherwise if I got a predtor I would take it back to GW and get a refund for a vindicator

If you know that you face hordes you can make a Dakka-Pred, with AC, 2 Hvy Bolters and Havoc launcher.

Well that works fine with Chaos.
But normal marines are stuck with a storm bolter, which isn't terrible.
I mean, they get 10 shots all up for a 95 point tank.
When they're stationary, that is.
