Want to hear thoughts on this army. I'm mostly playing Guard, Chaos Marines, Tyranids ,Dark Eldar...and more Eldar *scowl*. I think this is a roughly balanced army, but as I say I want to know what you think:
HQ - Farseer, Doom, Runes of Warding, Singing Spear
Troops - 6 Jetbikes, 2 Cannons, Warlock Singing Spear (X2) 10 Dire Avengers, Exarch, Bladestorm w/ Wave Serpant, Bright Lances
Elite - 5 Fire Dragons
Heavy Support - Falcon, Spirit Stones, Scatter Laser
The idea is, in CTF and SG, I play the skimmers surrounded by jetbikes who turbo-boost each turn giving my vehicles a healthy cover save! I then fly off wreak havok and collect the objectives. In annihilate I'm thinking I should keep my Serpant in reserve with one jetbike squad and only play with the falcon and jetbikes on the field. I'd probably still do the jetbike wall thing again, kill some tanks with the dragons, shoot up some infantry with my bikes, and keep out of charge range with that 6" assault move.
Thanks for reading and please post some tips/thoughts.
Also, thoughts on where Farseer goes?
Well I'm not a huge fan of Falcons carrying Fire Dragons for three reasons.
1) The Falcon is basically a long range weapons platfrom, you want to maintain your distance to make the most of that.
2) In order to use fire dragons you need to get up close and personal with your opponent, refer to point 1, and this leaves your falcon vunerable to CC attacks and meltas in return for delivering what most of the time becomes a suicide unit.
3) To get the Fire Dragons up close and personal you'd be cheaper using a wave serpent since you'll spend most of your time turbo boosting in and then out again away from danger if the unit actually managed to survive. On top of that, thanks to the Shields Wave Serpents are harder to actually get a penetrating hit on than Falcons.
What the Falcon is good for is sitting back with a small 5 Man DA squad to make it scoring so it can sit back on an objective firing away at range or for a rapid redeployment to pick up a small unit that are in a dire situation because their own ride has bit the dust.
