    Has anyone heard if there is an Codex coming for the Raven Guard? I really would like to start a RG force but would like a codex to make it more offical. In a WD a few issues back I recall seeing somethings for them. Any news or rumors would be appreciated.

    The Raven Guard dont have enough of a following to warrant a Codex just for them. The WD issue is number 275. I have heard rumors of A Space Marine codex that would have customizition abilities sort of like the New IG Doctorines... but it's just a rumor. I've always thought it would be cool to customise your Chapter to your particular fighting style...

    By the way, I play Raven Guard, and they kick some serious tail! Happy hunting!

    I was planning on doing an Raven Guard unit. I don't have issue 275 but am looking for it. I did hear about some of the things in that issue and it does sound nice. I may just wait till the possible codex you mentioned is confirmed or not. I wanted to do a Blood Angels unit. Maybe a 1500 point army would be good. I have about 500 points worth of terminators of the BA the I bought recently so adding an HW and a few more wont be too tough.

    Thanks!

    What special thigns do Raven Guard exactly do? I know their Primarch was Corax, but they're probably the least understood of all 20 original chapters. (Not counting, of course, the two missing ones.)

    I dont recall any specific gameplay rules, but their history is quite interesting.

    During the Horus Heresy (I think), almost all off the chapter was wiped out. So, i order to refill their ranks, their primarch ordered the uses of experimental techniques to spped the production of new marines.

    Later, when the razen guard and space wolves were fighting side by side, the raven guard started ushering forward rabid humans, driven into a frenzy by the war, towards the enemy, like a minder might provoke wild animals to attack a foe. Nedless to say, the Space wolves were more than a bit worried about this, and ordered an investigation into what went on. As it turns out, these mad freaks were the results of attempting to produce space marines faster, and the raven guard soon disposed of all the failures.

    Raven Guard are awesome, the fluff is cool, but the rules make for an interesting force. Any unit not assigned a transport may deepstrike,(dunno about bikes or other things like that....) as the Raven Guard are very adept at rapid deployment, (usually Jump packs and Thunderhawks and stuff) They have a few nifty rules other than that but their command squads may have Jump Packs and Lightning Claws. Pretty sweet. I won't post rules for 'em but check 'em out...

    Where, may I ask, can I get the rules? Don't do anything that violates copyright, but do you know?
