You already got a Range 18" Assault 3 Str 5 AP 5 Twin-Linked Dakkaguns on the Warbike. Why do you want a lousy Range 24" Assault 2 Str 4 Ap 6 Twin-Linked Shoota? Drop that TL Shoota and get an Attack Squig.

Looks good. But depending on who get's the Kombi-Skorcha, you might be accused of abusing the Wound Allocation Rule.

What are foot-slogging Gretchins doing in a Ravensquig list? And I don't accept sitting on the objective as a plausible explanation :P

Get rid of the Gretchins. Get more Deffkoptas with this configuration.

No the gretchin will be a big part of my fluff. They stay.

And the skorchas go to 1 powerklaw and 1 big choppa nob.


Hmm...

And the grots hold an objective for how long? Don't expect them to live very long, whilst there is 19 of them, grots are the easiest thing in the game to kill....

Don;t under estimate the grots they are a wild card cause you simple hold them in reserve. The later they come on the better. Once they do get on the board shove them into terrian that grats a 4+ cover. Go to ground and bam your grots are getting a 3+ cover save. Not to shabby at all. Find a bunker and you have a 2+ cover save. I like the idea of the grots but then again I use a small squad of them as well in my Mechanized Death Skull Blue Meanes list. FLuff wise they are the scavengers for my mechanized army and they arrive late (held in reserve) since they are always walking/running.

All it takes though is a weapon that ignores cover, and if they are coming on late in the game, the chances of a rhino full or amrines with a flamer, or any other squad being there are greater... Let alone things like the anti cover whirlwind, crack shot, thundefire cannons, drop pod lists with flamer dreads, the list goes on....

you can counter any unit with another unit but the merit stands that grots work well for claiming objectives with next to nothing for points.
