In the the Ravenwing i was wondering is it better to go with smaller 3 bike+attack bike squads or more bike and fewer squads? I was thinking about going with this set up for a 1500 squad
i have it all exept 3 attack bikes and 3 land speeders

Go with LSTs. Trust me. At least 2 squads of 3. The master's rerolling to-hit dice is invaluable to them. If possible, go with 9 plus the master. That's 10 assault cannons, with a lot of re-rolling rending.Originally Posted by Omedon
Fo bikes, I would suggest big squads. For example:
Reclusiarch Chaplain on bike, terminator honours, Lightning claws, 130 pts
Ravenwing bike squad x5, 2x meltaguns, veteren sergeant w/ powerfist, attack bike w/ multimelta, 320 pts
Let's say they attack a full 10 man space marine tactical squad:
Shooting: 2 meltaguns and multi melta kill 2 marines. 4 TL bolters get 6 hits, 3 wounds, 1 dead marine. Assault: Chappy charges, hits 5 times, kills 3 marines. Other bikers (not including the sergeant) get 11 attacks, 8 hit, 4 wound, 1 dead marine. Veteren sergeant gets 4 attacks, 3 hit, 3 more dead SM.
Total dead marines: 10
Very efficient of course.
Against hoard armies, take flamers instead of meltaguns and a heavy bolter instead of the multi melta.
If you don't have many points to spend on bikes, go with 3 man squads with 2 plasma guns in each squad. Costs 132 pts. Move, rinse, and repeat.
