It's weird, I've been playing DA since I got into the game over 5 years ago but I never really pursued a proper Ravenwing army. Well, there's first time for everything and since the DA book doesn't offer anything else beyond DW/RW when compared to the new marines I figured I'd try it out.
Sammael-jetbike or speeder?
Interrogator-Chaplain-bike, melta bombs
Ravenwing Attack Squadron-6 bikes, 2w/ plasma guns, Apothecary, Standard Bearer, Attack Bike w/ multi-melta, Sergeant w/ powerfist
Ravenwing Attack Squadron-6 bikes, 2w/ meltaguns, Attack Bike w/ multi-melta, Sergeant w/ power weapon, melta bombs
Ravenwing Attack Squadron-6 bikes, 2w/ flamers, Attack Bike w/ multi-melta, Sergeant w/ power weapon, melta bombs
Ravenwing Support Squadron-2 speeders, 1w/ heavy bolter, 1w/ heavy bolter and assault cannon
The IC attaches to the command squad and they run rampant with all sorts of nasty plasma and power weapon/fist doom. The melta squad hunts tanks, the flamer squad goes after infantry, splitting into combat squads as needed. The attack bikes go for tanks as well. Sammy supports as needed, either in combat or with lotsa dakka. Speeders provide extra dakka. Units will outflank as necessary, holding Speeders and Sammy in reserve if need be.
How would you improve and use this list? Would the marine book work better for this sort of army? I haven't yet looked at the equivalent vanilla army as I simply don't have the mental fortitude to handle yet another disappointment.
So I take it the list is perfect then? Great
I checked the new marine codex for a similar list and I must say I'm appalled. 310 points gets ==Me== a full RW squadron, barring the speeder, with 2 meltas and a power weapon+melta bombs. 310 points gets ==Me== a full bike squadron with 2 meltas and a powerfist. I exchange Fearless, teleport homers (useless in a pure biker army), and Scouts for 2 extra wounds and a PF. Wow I hate this new Codex.
So, here's the list done with the new marines. I'm thinking Kor'sarro, the 3 bike squadrons, a beefy Command Squad, and a couple Scout Bikes or Attack Bikes for support. It's a huge difference, over 10 extra models, and I think it will work even better.
