Depends on what army you're facing. If it's other marines/chaos marines, then the Redeemer is pretty good, IMO. You can't really go wrong with AP3 S6 templates coupled with an Assault Cannon. If you're facing tank-heavy armies, then the classic is the best. Against Orks, Nids, Tau, Eldar, and IG, the Crusader and the Redeemer are at a tie. Both are great anti-infantry vehicles. I think the only difference is that the Crusader excels at killing Tau/Eldar (anything with a 4 or 5+ save) and the Redeemer is fluent at roasting tightly-packed swarms/hordes. So it pretty much boils down to what you're playing against. Regardless of my opponent, however, I ALWAYS take a Hunter-killer missile.

Farsight Enclave: 4-2-1
Death Guard: 5-0-1

First, armylists go in the army list section, this should be under tactics.

Always the redeemer IMO, you should always take a pintel mounted MM and extra armour, after all it is a transport.

Before you post an army list read THIS

I dont get reedeemers but i think they are awesome. I always go for a lrc over a lr and pack it full of assault termies takes out anything. I dont go for lr cause they arent really a anti infantry or anti tank vechile for anti tank trilas predator. What transport cap. does a reedeemer have? I always pack a champ into the crusader to deal with enemy characters. Also blessed hull for eldar. I just love land raiders, are they the best av in the game with blessed hull??

Actually this is more of a General 40kish thing .

I am a fan of the LRC and in friendly games a LR Promethus.

I will be building a yet unnamed LR varient based on Vulcan Megabolters and flamers......

Basic no options for CSMs. 1500 may give you the points for some options but you are likely better off giving the transported unit a mark of khorne.

Crusader all the way! Good mix of firepower (MM and AC for taking out tanks, MC's, etc) and the bolters for infantry. Whatever survives the shooting, let loose with the Terminators inside.

Downside of course is the short range on all the guns.

I like the normal land raider (Lascannons are my friends) with a multi-melta on top and my hardest squad inside.
