Welcome to Librarium Online!
What is the best heavy support choice between the Ravager, Razorwing, or Voidraven? Give me your reasons as to why as well here, and how would you kit them out?
I would have to say that most people prefer the ravager over the other heavy support choices. First of all it really helps that there is a games workshop plastic model for it. This means no proxxy or expensive forgeworld resin kits.
Secondly, for 115 points you can have a mobile gun platform with 3 dark lances and flickerfields. Ravagers simply have been proven to be quite point effective in comparison to the other heavy support choices. Most people will stick to dark lances as the ravager will usually be targeting enemy mech or high priority targets. Equipping it for an anti-infantry role is a bit of a waste as the DE troops largely have enough poison weapons to do this themselves.
3 Trueborn (2 w DL) in a Raider
1 Razorwing (2 dissies, 1 SC, and Flickerfield)
Now I essentially have 3 ravagers and I get the razorwing.
But for the points its hard to argue against a FF ravager.
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 see the razorwing as more of a "I'm going to take out a heavy weapons squad 1st and the be a ravager for the rest of the game." S6 missiles means that guard splat and you almost always wound on 2s. Not to mention if it laying down 4 pie plates in a turn, your opponent is going to notice it and shoot at it which gives your other skimmer a chance to do their thing.
So basically its 165 points to kill a squad and then give your other units a chance to get to where they need to be
"My Word is Iron"
"Show me your Friends, and I'll show you your Future"
I use 2x Ravagers with NS/FF and 1x Voidraven with NS/FF. I don't give the Voidraven any other upgrades, and have never yet used its mine.
Honestly after looking at all the missiles comparison the two best options are monoscythe (default for razorwings or implosion missiles). Problem with implosion missiles is the 30 points each.
So for me I like Ravagers with DL & Flickerfield against vehicles and Razorwings w Dissies, SC, and Flickerfield vs infantry.
You're paying for AV11 on the voidraven.
