Which is better? Defiler or soul grinder?

Soul grinder has the following advantages:
- AV 13 13 11
- Comes in via deep strike

Defiler has the following advantages
- has more choices of upgrades
- has better weapons

Deleted double post, not allowed to post rules like that - BC8

An Imperial Guardsman, a Space Marine, and an Inquisitor walk into a bar.

The Guardsman says "ow."

The Marine breaks right through the bar with his reinforced skull.

The Inquisitor accuses the bar of heresy. When the bar refuses to confess or even move despite sustained torture, the Inquisitor executes the Guardsman for failing to defeat the bar in combat.

Above is an epic example of how fail the imperium is..... IRON WITHIN, IRON WITHOUT!

Simple, the Defiler. Depending on your opponent, run them one of two ways. Against Guard, Marines and pretty much anything with decent anti-tank, swap out the flamers for a Havoc Launcher, and just advance whilst blasting away with the Battlecannon. It'll invariably get blown off at some point, at which point you start blasting away with the Havoc and Reaper. That's 155 points. At 185, the Soulgrinder will either get shot to pieces before it can close range, or Deep Strike, likely destroy one target with an alpha-strike, then get shot to pieces.

Against Orks, Nids and other armies lacking in anti-tank and high Leadership, the Soulgrinder will do immense damage, but the Defiler is cheaper and won't be sniffed at either, especially if you take two extra CC weapons. You'll have five attacks versus the 'Grinder's 4, and still have a better version of the Phlegm cannon. Not much anti-tank to destroy that Battle Cannon, so other guns are more redundant, and there's plenty of Monstrous Creatures and vehicles to double-tap with Ordnance and assaulting. Just be wary of Nobz on Warbikes with a Power Klaw. They'll throw your Defiler over the horizon, Team Rocket style.
