It depends on what strategy you're using. In a Webway list, the Talos is the most deadly. In any other list, the Ravager is best. Scourges I rank lowest as they are too fragile and expensive, regardless of their firepower.

Vaul didn't swear. Not unless you count 'Hell' as a swear word, which this cynical atheist Moderator does not. Hard to say 'Hellglaive' or 'Hell Mask' if you do, too.

I think he's posting in 'Orkish', for some unknown reason - which is just about OK, as long as it makes sense...

Personally i think its the Talos.
Great for killing the front liners in a squad. Most players put their squad leaders of special characters in the front of the squad.... this helps killing individual items.

Talos I think. The firepower a ravager can carry is sexy, but dark eldar skimmers have plenty of issues to deal with.

3 Death Jesters one w/BL two w/shuriken cannons all three with phase fields. Actually it is any elite choice but heavy is what they do. I use these when my friends let me, and the are fun. The weapon set is for the minis that I have so I haven't tryed them other wise. Three missile launchers look promising.
