I Have to agree with the above post, crusader over the redemer. Yeah it has the really nasty inferno flamers thingys but as he said it has the range of a flamer so for the first turn all it can do is move about. ALL the vertran players i play dislike the redemer and these guys know what their doing.

the redeemer is good but as above it does nothing for the 1st 1-2 turns plus you have to also take into consideration that an ork player who sees you stick any template weapons will not clump his units together, he will use full advantage of the 2" unit coherency rule. Also remember that the inferno cannon is a str 6 ap 3 template from the weapon meaning 1: it can only fire a short distance, 8" if i remember the template (trust me you will rarely get more than 4-5 models max with a flamer template) and 2: if you move it up to 6" you can only fire 1 as it is a main weapon (land raider rules) and if you move from 6-12" you cant fire it whereas the crusader can fire its both sponsons if you move 6" as it is only str 4 and classed as a defensive weapon.

to be fair though depending on scenry and numbers the 2" option isn't always so easy when moving which is when redemer would catch them an if u have a assault squad in there its great Cheesy. i have read its runs and it does intreg me so personaly i would play test it an see how it does cos its a nice veichle if u know how to use it.
