    I was damn close to playing Ravenwing, but the only enemy I mainly fight against is Necron, so I stick with good ole troops. Ravenwing Armies are cool though, not too many people field them, beats just looking at some more cookie cutter Space marine army lists.

    I've got a Raven Guard army set aside, awaiting paint. I've played them a few times and had a lot of fun. They are very good at scenario play, having a lot of fast moving units. I go with 5-6 assault squads, shrike, a chaplain, and a few scout squads. It's kind of an unbalanced list and doesn't do too well against armor, but who takes a lot of armor these days anyway?

    lol, Ravenwing are funny to play against.

    I use a swarming Tyranid army so 123 hungry beasts make short work of 23 marines, i dont care how fast they move, it just makes the beasts hungryier but it makes for some entertaining tom and jerry antics.

    But against a Normal Space Marine army i've seen some quite funny games, its funny watching people trying to hit fast move targets and then them rolling 6's to save lol. Orks are also a funny army to play cos they cant hit poo.

    Eldar also are ones to stay clear of, they can move fast than you.

    Overall, RavenWing are a fun army, but not one to go into a tournament with. I wouldnt bother spending the $$ on them unless u collect Dark Angels anyway and then their a happy addtion.

    Yes sir... I play Ravenwing (amongst other things)

    They are great to play due to their harrassing abilities. Move and shoot, move and shoot, don't let the enemy near.

    My current Ravenwing Army fills every Force Organisiation Slot as follows.....

    1 Master of the Ravenwing (Land Speeder option)
    1 Master of the Ravenwing (Bike option)
    1 Chaplain on Bike
    1 Librarian on Bike

    2 Squads of 5 Bikes with Vet Sarg and 2 x Flamer
    6 Squads of 5 Bikes with Vet Sarg, Melta & Plasma

    1 Squad of 3 Land Speeders with Heavy Bolters
    1 Squad of 3 Land Speeder Tornado's with Assault Cannon & Heavy Bolter
    1 Squad of 3 Land Speeder Tornado's with Assault Cannon & Multi-Melta
    (before anyone points out that the above combo is illegal... it's not with Ravenwing Land Speeders)

    1 Squad of 3 Attack Bikes with Heavy Bolter
    2 Squads of 3 Attack Bikes with Multi-Melta

    Now as you can see, there's not many figures, but a lot of cash. Bare in mind I still have to buy 6 more Attack Bikes to add to my squads before it's finished!!!

    It's a very tricky army, one that demands a very tactical approach, but rewarding all the same, and victory is sweeter than normal.

    Never have to stand still to shoot heavy weapons.... always rapid fire, even on the move.... better toughness... thee are many aspects to Ravenwing that make them probably the most interesting and demanding Marine army to play.

    I have a gigantic DA force which once I'm finished with I'll add bits so I can field it as either DA, Deathwing or Ravenwing...I already have about 100+ guys (pretty big for a DA army). I've never been into bikes though so I dunno...I love Land Speeders though so it might be worth it.
