hey all i have a question,
how competitive is a Ravenwing army if I go for only bikes a troop + Speeders as fast attack and perhaps a Dread as elite, or do I just NEED tactical marines for a good competitive army??
"Et Imperator Invocato Diabolus Daemonica Exorsism!"
Do you intend to leave a bike squad on your objective (if there's only two) for the entire game? only three'll be too fragile, you'd best leave 6... 220 points minimum gone.
How many units can you field if you play multiple objectives?
How will you catch up something like a Falcon / Wave Serpant? It's weaponry is too far ranged, and it's too quick for you. You'll also have trouble with things like ork mobs - how are you going to kill 30? Four times, (Ignoring the rest of his army)
They're good, they're fun, but used right in combination with others.
(Besides run your venerable Dread behind the advancing rhino for cover, and your tac squad get LD10 from sammael - 10 men and rhino, equipped competently are the same as 6 bikes and fufill that usefull defensive role. What's not to like?
I was thinking of doing a Ravenwing army with Black Terminators (Using the broken sword shoulderpads out of the vets box) but i decided to mimic the DA 5th company, and support units "exactly as" in the end. It's still very satisfying.
