    hmm well i have a bretonnia army and a beastmen army so big difference but mostly i think i play on save and w8 for my enemy and then trap him, so start passive then when enemy is near i go aggressive and kill them worked nicely in WHF but dunno about 40k

    or if you mean how i do combat, tactical very considering all enemy possible attacks and plan defenses/counterattacks

    to be short a bit of a counter attacker i guess

    While IF you are plan to take hits while you what you probably don't want to play Black Templars because when the take casulites( srry about spelling) they charge to the enemy I think that is right.

    LOL. What Ares meant to say was that when BT's take casualties they charge into combat, so you DON'T want to use them as your army, according to him.

    ah k they are a bit like the O&G of fantasy no tactics just get there and kill them or be killed
    not my thing
    k so blood ravens then is it a big problem they can only have 1 tank in the army?
    since i have seen armies that may have more but just take 1 or 2

    Considering that you want to sit back and wait for your enemy, having the ability to only take one tank can be hurtful, but shouldn't hinder you too much. My suggestion is take a whirlwind as your only tank choice (this is the SM artillery). I'm not too sure on the Ravenwing rules, so I would wait for some of the guys who play them to come in and comment. Otherwise, just take tons of troop choices, probably with heavy bolters, considering sit back and shoot tactics, or perhaps missile launchers if you know you are going to face a tank heavy army. If you can take scouts do so, with all sniper squads, which can be a pain in your opponent's ass. Otherwise, welcome and enjoy!

    bloodravens can take land raider, predator destructor, whirlwind or a vindicator (flesh over steel rule) they can give some units infiltrate, the counterattack and true grit (trust your battel brothers, see but dont be seen rules)
    thats why i want to be lazy and set up traps for them :ninja:
