The tribune is tankier and costs less points, while valdor is more killy

All in all, they're rather similar except for as you say the tribune brings a 3++ for defence while Valdor has the insanity of the Apollonian spear.

 

Valdor's Warlord trait however is pretty naff, saving not many points on some Deep Strike and a re-roll of seize the initiative. However the Tribune can pick from any of the Warlord trait tables which is pretty damn handy!

 

Ultimately, in a fight there is not many things that can survive against Valdor, he's only vulnerable if he gets bogged down in something like Firedrakes or is against one of the massive new Daemons (or a Primarch... And even then). Whereas a Tribune can bring versatility and the ability to tank most anything thrown at him.

I've heard that statistically, every primary handily beats Valor except for Alpharius and non-Transcendent Lorgar

But Valdor has a very powerful shooting weapon against vehicles and an aweful miniature.

Yeah valdor can't defent against the offensive output of most primarchs, but the spear is really rather good vs so many things. It's a very tough call now they are both 325
