Whether Warriors are better is a different (and possibly clearer) question. I was interested in whether if you are taking Marauders (maybe as part of a fluffy army) it is better to take light armour.

Gathering together the discussion here and elsewhere it seems that against attacks <= Str 3 LA saves more models than you could buy with the points. Against attacks > Str3 LA is worthless. The X factor in just Mathhammering it is the lack of a clear answer on what proprtion of attacks will be Str 4+.

So my unscientific conclusion is that if you are using Marauders for a defensive role it might be worthwhile once you have bought the unit up to a useful rank bonus.

This is exactly what i was gping to do as i have lots of marauder models and np warriors. Was going to sit tjese guys in a block of 40 and then use my small hammer unots to atrack things. Hopefully they will be fairly survibeable!
