    So, I've decided that I need another squad of something close combat to help support my lines of heavy support. My two squads of Khornes just aren't cutting it anymore, and as soon as they get cut down, I have to pray that my heavy support can take the troops down before they get to 'em. Ya' know?

    So, I'm thinkin' I'll either get some Bloodletters or Raptors. What do you think? Both look really good. I mean, Raptor's hit and run would be fun to use -- toy around with my opponents and stuff, heh. But, a nice squad of Bloodletters summoned at the right place would do mucho damage. Maybe I should do both?

    What do you see as the pros and cons of each? Is there any other squad I'm overlooking. I have some Bikers too, and granted they're nice. But, I'm really likin' the Raptors and Bloodletters. What do ya' think?

    Thanks. ^_^

    id have to agree with TzeentchPlayer, raptors would be the way to go. the bad thing about the blood letters is that they aren’t reliable, you dont know if they are going to be there when you need them or not, what with instability and summoning them. and raptors do look really really bad a&#036;&#036;.

    problem solved:

    get a squad of raptors, deep strike them in behind the enemy fire bases and have them summon daemons&#33;

    Well, apart from the fact that you can&#39;t take Raptors in a pure Khornate force (note to all that you should always give good background about your army in these sorts of threads) I&#39;d recommend Bloodletters.

    I&#39;d recommend Bloodletters anyway if it was a BL army as well.

    Personally I would recomnd raptors if you most play against low save armys, or blood letters if you play against high save armys (like marines) both of them are pretty good, and both models look sweet imo.
    Also, hamster, Im pretty sure you can&#39;t deep strike Raptors

    it says demonic flight counts as a jetpack, which can deepstrike, I&#39;m not sure though...
