hmm you sure you cant fill the 36 points? an extra sniper rifle scout for each of your 5 man scout squads* would bring them to a nice even number of men and you'd be only two points from the 1500 mark.

This is a good list. you got CC, anti tank, aswell as a good deal of heavy bolters and chainswords for anti-infantry. This list could use more men and not that many scouts IMO.

Im taking the scouts to fit more in the theme of the Raven guard. I could probably drop 2 Squads and pick up some Tactical marines but I just prefer scouts.

I don't like odd numbered squads for obvious reasons. I prefered the first list, just make the two five man squads up to six man and you've got a few points left for wargear

@bluenose which wargear is this that only costs two points? since i assume bretonnian4 would want these extra scouts to have sniper rifles too

But even numbered squads require me to buy a whole new box of Scouts and chop points off form other stuff.
