    Blood Ravens:

    Advantages

    Trust your Battle-Brothers
    See, but dont be seen

    Drawbacks

    Flesh over steel.


    Or make a divergent chapter by dropping off the flesh over steel for eye to eye.

    Well to start he should realize that they are only minor changes not really special rules. But since I don't have my dex with me i will quickly give you a rundown of what some of them do
    First the ability to take bikers and assault sqauds as elites i believe.
    Second the ability to give regular squads cc weapons (pistol and chainsword)
    Third you might find the ability to give each squad apothecaries instead of vets
    Fourth the abilitie to give them special weapons such as an extra Flamer/plasma/melta gun

    Dont take my word however as my trusty dex isnt handy at the moment

    Take the fight to them. That's a pure CC trait.

    As for a secondary trait not much comes to mind as the penalties for two traits are a bit limiting.
    I can read now!

    Have him look at blood angles, failing that, See but dont be seen, no mercy no respite, blessid be the warriors, trust your battle brothers, Most combinations of these make space marines much better in CC. If hes looking for all out CC, he should be looking at chaos, they are much better at assault.
