Idea is Shrike attachs to Vanguard Vets and go infantry hunting, Korvydae goes with the other assault squad and tank hunts/elite infantry killer, 2 Attack Bikes go tank hunting(turbo boost on first turn), Scouts deploy for home objective holding, Tactical Squad drop in where useful on 2nd turn, Sternguard drop in for rapid fire on elite infantry.
Comment and Critique please.
Power weapons on the entire vanguard vet squad is generally considered a waste of points.
Also assault squad is a fast attack choice.
It is a troop choice in BA. But if you are using shrike, you are going vanilla so you have too many fast attack.
My advice: Drop the vanguard, up the assault squad to 10 men. Drop Korvydae, then add another tactical squad in a drop pod with whatever load out you think it needs. Also I would consider adding some combi-meltas to the sternguard and get them up to 10 for combat squad if possible (might be too many points). Might be hard at this point range tho.
If you're going with Korvydae i'd suggest taking more assault squads as otherwise he just seems a waste of points. I'd drop the vanguard and use the points to up the existing squad, to take two full assault squads instead.
Maybe drop the tactical and shave some points from the sternguard to get a couple of CC scout squads with PF (or melta bombs) in storms. I know they are not always popular but have worked well for me and seem to fit a ravenguard list.
