    At the point where you are at I would say that another raider is a good thing. A raider will help make your army moble and one raider is not enough. With 2 raiders you can put a raider squad in one and wyches in another, the wyches than should almost always get charges right away.

    I would definitely take a ravager first, raider is an important tool but for any DE army of no matter what the point cost, a ravager is always useful. Its one of the fastest and most hard hitting gunships in 40k, and can be custmized to counter any enemy.

    I see you counter me.

    Well while a agree that the ravager is great, it's not really always needed for a winning list. I would go with the raider becuase he already has one so he would need another. With the added raider he could take a 6 or 5 man raider squad and fit more heavy weapons or splinnter cannons into his army and still mount the wyches which I would never let my wyches go one foot. With two raiders he could have the wyches in one and the lord in the other with the warriors. Or he could leave the warriors out of the raider and use it as a shiney gun ship that doesn't matter if it dies.

    Get a Raider. I think it would serve you better at the moment, though you should think about geting a ravager soon afterwards. I say every time you want a raider, get a ravager instead since it has all the parts of a raider plus extra stuff that you'll want later on, like spare disintegrators since ravagers should be armed with 3 each and they only come with 2.

    This post deserves a clapping from everyone because it celebrates the first, and possibly the last time that I say anything that doesn't flatly contradict something that necronoob previously said. I demand a thunderous round of applause.

    I would say raider first then a ravager but really...you need both!

    If your strapped for money however you can easily use one or the other depending on who you are facing. I have used ravagers as just raiders before and I currently use a raider as my 3rd ravager. When I use a raider model as a ravager I use magnets for the side gunners so when you see 3 guns on a raider you know its a ravager.

    Now that I think about it - buy a ravager model and if you need it to be a raider then you can hold off on attaching the side panels - at this point, without the side panels, it looks like a regular raider. You would also get the 3 gunners as well so you can go either way rather easily.

    I have to say, get raiders then ravagers. And on a completely different note, GW UK have removed all trace of the disintegrator from the online store and i can no longer order them through the instore order points. I have a bad feeling about this....
    wow. now that was interesting

    I'm a huge fan of the ravager myself, so its +1 vote for it.

    The fact that they are combat patrol legal makes them even sweeter.
