Blood Ravens, 1500 pts

1500 pts on the mark


Basically I don't want a critique of what other units I could put in there or which units I should replace. The only foreseeable change I could make would involve removing the Devastators for a 6-man Sniper Scout squad, a Techmarine with full servo-harness and jump pack, a few extra Termies or burling up the HQs with Termie honors (or some combo of the prior options).

Feedback?

Errr.... Cleanse and Purify isn't a Blood Raven trait. So unless you're using different traits for them, any one of those double special weapon tac squads would be illegal...

On the list itself, it looks pretty good. A bunch of infiltrating marines is always going to be trouble just due to the deployment advantage you'll have. Horde assault armies like nids or orks will likely be troublesome though

Right you are; i'll have to find a new army that fits those traits. Are there any currently that reflect the traits See but don't be Seen and Cleanse and Purify? Both of them are under the Somber specificity.

Anyhow, I've updated the list to be a more all-comer army taking out those ridiculous Devastators, toning down the Assault squad and adding more troop support. I think this will be the final configuration:

*Unknown Chapter*, 1499 pts

+Cleanse and Purify
+See but don't be Seen
-Flesh over Steel


HQ__________________________________________________ ________

Chaplain, Reclusiarch
