Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello all, I just started a DE army and was wondering what advice I could get on the armament of my two ravagers. I was thinking of arming one with 3 disintegrators and the other with 3 dark lances. The guy at the GW shop told me to use 1 DL and 2 disintegrators on each, something that would allow them to take on both infantry and armoured targets effectively. What is the concensus on that?
Does the guy at GW play Dark Eldar? <_<
You had the right idea the first time go with the straight 3 because then you can focus on one target with one purpose and it will keep things much more simplistic and easier to figure out the numbers. :rolleyes:
I'd slap that guy at your GW in the face with a Ravager for being such an idiot. Always go for straight 3. I'll tell you why:
Say I have a Ravager with 1 DL and 2 Dissies. There is a Land Raider there OH I'LL SHOOT IT! But then you've wasted points on the Dissies since they cannot do crap. Or if it was vice versa and I was shooting at Marines. OK I hit 6 with 2 Dissie shots but now I'll only hit 1 with my Dark Lance. If You had straight 3 you would do your job much more effectively.
Your Ravager should only have one mission, just like every other unit. A 10-man Sniper Squad doesn't kill lightly armoured troops, it kills tanks, because that's what it is meant to do. Archons charge and butcher the enemy in assault, because that's what it's meant to do!. Don't start mixing stuff, you'll waste points.
By the way, you should leave Dark Lances with your foot sloggers. Only vehicles can have Dissies so make sure most vehicles have Dissies.

I built mine with the weapons mounted using rare earth magnets. That way, you can change the weapons as you wish to match the army you're going against.
That said, I agree -- specialize with one weapon or the other. Its so very nice to pop open a land raider with three DL hits. Its equally nice to wipe out a whole tac squad of marines with three template hits.
As everyone else has said go for the three of a kind option.
Ps by the way blue meanie could you tell me where im likely to find some rare earth magnets.
Ask not the ruleboys a question for they shall give you three answers each true and terrifying to behold
Please tell me idinos IF he plays Dark Eldar or not???
Go with the straight 3, take 2 Ravagers with all disintegrators.
And get DL sniper squads to take out those pesky tanks.

He doesn't play DE as far as I know. I'll make a ravager with disintegrators and won't glue the weapons on the second so I can change them when I need to I guess. Thanks for the tips everyone!! I'm also using 3 .squads of troops with 2DL each.
YEAH! That's what I'm talking about!Originally posted by idinos@Aug 16 2004, 12:43

I would say you mix them!!!!!!!
no jk ... your theory of 1 with dark lance and 1 with dissies are great.
dark lance one for tanks and dissies for marine tactical squad deaths.
the guy at your gw shop is very dumb.
I got my first ravager yesterday too birthday present.
I'm using 3 dark lances first, and keep the extra disintegrators for the next ravager.
2 ravagers in a 500 point game owns more!

On my Ravager, i have 2 Dark Lances, and One Disinigrator. And you can get rare earth magnets at Radio Shack....i think
