    1500 two options - need input

    Okay, this isn't a strictly competitive list but more like "I wan't to build and paint Raven Guards" -list. With that said, I still have a two possible options I'm thinking about. The basis of the list will be:

    Shrike
    9 Vanguard Veterans w/jump packs
    10 Assault Marines w/jump packs
    5 Scouts w/CCW or Shotgun, power weapon, meltabombs
    5 Scouts w/CCW or Shotgun, power weapon, meltabombs
    10 Tactical Marines (melta, missile, powerfist) in Drop Pod

    These can't be changed much since I already have them... However, I'm still thinking a bit with the last 235 points.

    Option #1:

    Second squad of 10 Tactical Marines (melta, missile, powerfist) in Drop Pod

    Option #2:

    Venerable/Ironclad Dreadnought with Extra Armor and some wargear in Drop Pod

    In any case the plan is to use Infiltrate and Fleet (Shrike will give Infiltrate to Vets or Assault and Fleet to whole army) and Drop Pod assault for a sort of 1st Turn Alpha Strike. The tactic is to drop the Pod in smack middle of enemy and fleet the infiltrators into assault range the first turn, proceeding then from there on.

    Black Legion: (W/L/D) 1/0/0 (6th edition: 2/3/0)

    Thanks but 1500 points is only 1500 points so I can't get both at the same time...

    First off I need to say Shrike is the bomb!

    I would go with the 2nd Tac Squad in Drop Pod. However you may want to think about a Rhino instead as you will have to roll for reserves with only 2 Drop Pods. Is there a way you could rearrange your list to get a 3rd Drop Pod?? That way 2 of your 3 Drop Pods will enter play automatically on the first turn. It would help with your BOOM my army is in your face and Shrike and the Van Vets are assaulting you right now......and its too late to see the emperor was right.
    Falco's Marines will Annihilate the foe on swift wings of vengeance!
