Looking at all the different options in the new codex it's sometimes tough to pick out which unit will be the most competitive. I know their it seems like there is 4 basic types of DE armies based on how you choose your basic troops.
1) Kabal Shooty
2) Wracks High T
3) Wyche CC
4) Helions Highmobility
Given the variety of options which support will likely see the greatest play time?
Seems like a lot of people are going the Kabal shooty route. In this case, ravagers seem like the solid option. In wych cc lists, I think you'll see more fighters and bombers and I think you'll see more pain engines in wrack high-t. Although fighters are quite effective, they are a bit of a one-trick-pony.
Ravager has to be. Cheap for three easy to use and powerful dark lances. Safest bet.
“When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a Communist.”
I'll def be swapping out one my usual 3 ravagers for a Cronos. The ability to start handing out pain points before anything hits combat (FC wyches/incubi/beasts anyone?) is too good for me to pass up. Probably not strictly the most competitive choice but certainly more fun. Plus that AP3 large blast and flamer just seem cool
The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. Bring them understanding of the power of ourselves through our strength and their fear. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all fragments will be smashed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be consumed
I'll be sticking to 3 DL Ravagers for now to make up for the loss of access to/price increase of DLs in other places. Eventually (once my FW Avatar model is done) I'd like to use it for a counts-as Talos with a Heat Lance.
I'll probably use the 3 ravagers and depending on my anti-tank, one might run 3 dissies. However, if a model comes out and I can spare the points, one of my HS slots is going to a razorwing.
Cronos. Did I hear somebody say Incubi with FC and FNP? Bwahaha!
Current Armies: Tau, Dark Angels, Wood Elves, Bretonnians
Side Projects: Imperial Guard, Dark Eldar, High Elves, The Empire
ravagers, i quit warhammer a while ago, but these new releases got me all fired up again.
Ravagers are all I can afford right now as it goes with models i already have...
This really should've been a multi-choice poll =P
Two Ravagers (Triple-DL on both) + Cronos looks like a very tempting combination for me, especially since I plan on running Incubi Raiders.
