    If you&#39;re dead-set on using Raveners, the best combo right now is Scything Talons and Rending Claws. Then you send them tank hunting / picking off stragglers.

    the most commen cc combinations are, 2 pair of scything talons or 1 pair scything talons and 1 pair of rending claws.

    of course when the new codex arrives this might alter

    I personally love raveners, but that&#39;s just me. I&#39;d take one unit w/ ST RC and one unit w/ 2x ST.

    Currently: Leaping Warriors are better, for less points.

    If using Raveners, I would take ScyTal + RenClw... They&#39;re most effective (and safe) in CC, and with that bioweapon combo they&#39;re a potential threat to pretty much anything in the game. Against vehicles they tend to fare best for kill/point-ratio.

    Wouldn&#39;t go with 2xScyT, since then they are not a threat to SM and the like... And You&#39;ll need some of that RenC punch even against "softies" like IG and Orks. If You&#39;re dead-set on cutting soft targets to ribbons, just take Leaping Gaunts with ScyT.

    Wouldn&#39;t go with ranged bioweapons, since they really are not that effective with their cruddy BS. This might change in the 4thEd, though, which promises enhanced range and effectiveness for many ranged bioweapons.


    Of course, the current rumour is as Dreachon said... They can get both their full set of CC bioweapons and a thorax-mounted bioweapon. Oh, and their basic cost is rumoured to be less than the current ones. We shall see... (Y)


    Another note: Currently, Raveners are weak and fragile, and an entire brood can be easily dispatched with most ranged weapons the opponents have. Thus I find it best to deploy them in as small broods as possible, to force the enemy to waste the maximum amount of fire to kill them all... As stated above, even that single ScyT + RenC Ravener is a potential threat to most vehicles in the game, and can contest quarters, claim objectives, etc.
    "The meat things seek to destroy ourselves. They hunt us as we hunt them but they are weak and uncertain. The inferior flesh will be entirely destroyed, all biomatter consumed. Ourselves will fight to the last, all weak flesh must be devoured."

    the st rc set is good for transports but with stuff like DE outside them dont overlook the devourer
    I think a great bumper sticker would be as follows:
