well i am still trying to decide what SM army i want to play and i have looked at every different one..
i was stuck between the Dark Angels and the Black Templars when i realized that i hadnt looked at the Raven Guard. Now the only problem with this is that i dont have any of their fluff and i also have no idea whether or not they even have any special rules (though i think they do since GW even went so far as to give Imperial fists those damn stupid siege specialist rules).
so basically i was wondering if anyone could tell me any of their fluff, and if possible tell me where and if i can find their special rules.

All I know is that their Primarch was Corax who grew up on a mining world and helped to liberate the mining slaves from their oppressers using his aptitude for guerilla warfare. Because of Corax's natural feel for it Raven Guard Space marines are experts at guerilla warfare and they all have very pale skin and raven-black hair like their primarch. Hope that helped a bit!

black templars can be a good choice, but you cant take scout squads(you ones w/ cc weapons in ut tactical squads, but no heavy weps for them), devastatr squads, or libraians. The plus's are their special rules, (you choose one b4 battle), hit on 3's, add one to your damage dice i.e. you need a 3+ to wound IG but now u need 2+(but -1 initiative), 6+ inv save to every model but u sacrifise ur cover saves, and the one good way to get closer to your oppenents all of your BT models go 2d6 towards the closest enemy psyker. I prefer these guys, bc CC IS THE ONLY WAY TO INSURE UR ENEMIES REALLY DIE!

If i remeber well the main difference with the Raven Guard is the option to put both jump packs and lightning claws on the command squads... (do not quote me)

Ok, that's a nice option, but BA are similar to that (Honour Guard: jump packs, power weapons, MELTA BOMBS!, have other great special rules, and their rules are easier to get hold of. It's annoying though that I spent however many Â£s on the codex and I'm not using them. I got an Honour Guard as well. Annoying.
