Battle Report: Ravenwing vs Chaos Space Marines – 1,000 points

Battle Report: Ravenwing vs Chaos Space Marines – 1,000 points

Had a little 1k game last night, which is unusual for me as I am normally a 2k monster. Played against Phil aka Goblin Man and his Chaos Space Marines. I call Phil Goblin Man as he owns a cool little shop called Two Fat Goblins in Stafford which sells 40k stuff and other cool bits and pieces. I thought I’d try Ravenwing out tonight. The low model count is certainly going to be interesting; 20 models at 1k!

All objectives were placed in the centre, I placed mine like this as I am heading that way anyway. I guess Phil did the same. I deploy with the Attack Bikes at the front, Sammy and Command Squad behind with units split into combat squads on the sides – both melta units on the left flank and both plasma on the right flank. Phil deploys using the large centre ruin for cover for the two Rhinos. On the left flank he puts the Plaguie Marines in area terrain with the Lord and Spawn buddies hanging back a bit

Tau – first impressions

Tau – first impressions

I got to play against the new Tau yesterday, got two games in against them, one was against a varied list (Shaun, my opponent is using Tau for the first time so getting a feel for them) and the second game was against a more refined list (which I wrote), though still new ground. If you want to discuss the list is an actual link:

Down at Powerfist Gaming last night and played against a chap who goes by the name of Jon. I haven’t played against Jon before so will be interesting to see what he brings and how he plays. Sorry, didn’t take pics as had no intention of writing a bat rep. Was still in my mind so I thought I would get it written.

Ravenwing Black Knights – any good?

Ravenwing Black Knights – any good?

There’s an interesting unit in the Dark Angels codex which interests me and that’s the Ravenwing Black Knights. At first glance they appear over costed and have the same profile more or less as a normal Ravenwing Biker. So are Black Knights any good? Know your Knight The Black Knight costs 42 points and has a profile pretty much the same as a normal Ravenwing Biker, only difference is an extra attack and gets LD9. Like the Ravenwing Biker they have the scouts, grim resolve and hit & run special rules. As an extra the Black Knights get the skilled rider special rule – this means they get

Battle Report: Chaos Space Marines vs Ravenwing – 2,000 points

Down at my home away from home Powerfist Gaming. Got a game in with Chris and his Ravenwing. * No pics as my CSM is all scrappy using my old B.A Razorbacks. I am also doing this from memory so you will have to bare with me. Chaos Space Marines ‘Iron Warriors’ – 2,000 points HQ Chaos Sorcerer Chaos Sorcerer Troops 5 x Chaos Space Marines w/ Rhino – plasma gun – Champion w/ combi plasma 5 x Chaos Space Marines w/ Rhino – plasma gun – Champion w/ combi plasma 5 x Chaos Space Marines w/ Rhino – plasma gun – Champion w/ combi plasma 5 x Chaos Space Marines w/ Rhino – meltagun – Champion w/ combi melta 5 x Chaos Space Marines w/ Rhino – meltagun – Champion w/ combi melta 5 x Chaos Space Marines w/ Rhino – meltagun – Champion w/ combi melta 10 x Chaos Cultists Fast Attack Heldrake – baleflamer Heldrake – baleflamer Heavy Support 3 x Obliterators – mark of nurgle Vindicator Vindicator 5 x Havocs – 4 x autocannons 5 x Havocs – 4 x autocannons Dark Angels ‘Ravenwing’ – 2,000 points HQ Sammael Ravenwing Command Squad – banner of devastation, grenade launcher & apothecary Troops 6 x Ravenwing Attack Squad w/ Attack Bike – 2 x plasma guns – Attack Bike w/ multi melta 6 x Ravenwing Attack Squad w/ Attack Bike – 2 x plasma guns – Attack Bike w/ multi melta 6 x Ravenwing Attack Squad w/ Attack Bike – 2 x plasma guns – Attack Bike w/ multi melta 6 x Ravenwing Attack Squad w/ Attack Bike – 2 x plasma guns – Attack Bike w/ multi melta 3 x Land Speeders – typhoon missile launcher Fast Attack Nephilim Fighter Ravenwing Darkshroud – assault cannon Game: Vanguard Strike & Purge the Alien – night fighting is not on Deployment I won the roll off for side and deployment, I chose to go first. I got re-roll reserves for my warlord traits (handy) while my warlord got haemorrage power and the other one iron arm. I split my armour and spread them between a ruin; on the left of the ruin was all melta units with a single Vindie and Oblits while on the right the plasma units with the other Vindie. In the centre camped the two Havoc units while Cultists stopped in reserve. Chris deployed top left corner with a few units in terrain, his units are bunched up to make use of the dakka banner. There is a large ruin in the centre, I can draw LOS through it though he will be getting cover.

Ravenwing Black Knights – go large?

Ravenwing Black Knights – go large?

I am wanting to use some Black Knights in my Ravenwing army, as I think the dudes are pretty bad ass. I would like two units if I am honest, but previous play tests (using triple Attack Bikes and triple flamer units) doesn’t work. So I am thinking about using a super size unit, say something 7-8 in size. A RW Black Knight costs 42 points a pop and comes with a 18″ twin-linked plasma gun and a funky mini hammer which gives
