Ok i finally got a hold of the DA codex. I personally think Ravenwing is the stronger of the 3 themes throughout the DA Codex.

I have been on the recieving end of a full ravenwing force, this is quite similar to what the other guy used. The banner has a huge target on his head.

I drew up the list quickly so i dunno how it will do.

Ok the basics are;

Land Raider + Libby with the tact squad go inside.

The libby gives a 4+ invul save to the land raider because of the power gen.

ALL of the bikes hug 6" to the raider for the 4+ invul save. This will help against Heldrakes who will WRECK this type of list.

The banner gives each bike t/l 4x bolter shots. So the 5x man bike units have t/l 20 shots per unit. I have 4x squads so thats t/l 80x bolter shots. Add this to the land raider crusder who also benfits from the banner.

The bike units have hit and run which is silly broken in this edition. Charge in on your phase, stay there then leave on their turn. Then shoot and charge in again...repeat

The army must hit units hard and stay togther to support each other. It is highly flexiable when moving 24" move a turn is great for grabbing objectives on the last turn.

T5 marines with a 3+sv, 5+ jink and a 4+ when they turbo is great.

The weaknesses of this list is that it's an elite army. Taking losses hurts, certain armies will cripple this list like Guard or Chaos Marines.

Heldrakes are a major problem, no armour saves and no cover saves. Thats why i need ther Invul save from the libby.

The best place to hide from heldrakes is, funny enough is in combat. You cannot shoot into combat remember this is where hit and run comes in. It stops you from being shot at in your enemys turn if you can surive a turn of combat.

This list should do well against horde armies i think. That many dakka bolter shots down feild is awesome. Couple all those shots with the RAD nades and the bolter shots become even better.

There is enough meltas to get rid of anything scary and with the flexiable movement of the bikes getting there shouldn't be a problem.

Sammy brings a plasma cannon + The knights bring plasma talons. Again add in RAD nades and those 2 wound t4 guys better watch out because now they 're t3 now and the plasma is doubling them out.

I am gunna playtest this it looks like alot of fun to play. Its a finesse army. One mistake and your fucked. It will play like an eldar / d eldar army i think.

  Something Stupid
Posted by: BGJ - 03-01-2013, 05:03 PM - Forum: Warhammer 40k - Replies (6)

So After just realising (2 mins ago) that dakka jets have 3 and not 2 hull points I wonder if anyone else has done something stupid and not realised.

  Fantasy help!
Posted by: stalker - 03-01-2013, 04:27 PM - Forum: Warhammer 40k - Replies (10)

Hello all, I've been faffing about fantasy wise, changing my mind about what army to build a number of times! Started with High Elves as they came in the box, moved on to Warriors of Chaos as the knights looked awesome, also thought of Orcs as they seemed amusing. Now I don't know! Looking at the Bretonnians as I like the Knightly feel of them!

I do gather that they are quite an old book but is there anything I'd need to know about them? I did look on GW's site I thought they may do a getting started article but I've had no such luck finding one!

How do they fare? Combat army? Good heroes? stuff like that!

  how large is giant?
Posted by: necrongaz - 02-28-2013, 10:48 PM - Forum: Warhammer 40k - Replies (2)

The question could be more accurately asked as follows. Looking in ebay I've seen some nice giant models. Some are the smaller and slimmer giants GW used to do but there is also other giants round 10cm or larger there.

So are these big enough to count as a giant?
