Default Raven Guard 1500 Drop pod list

Okay guys decided to redo my drop pod list in a new direction. I realise doing just straight drop pods leaves a few units vunerable. With Shrike I get a nice large assulty unit and bike squad to get in the enemys face fast and a locator beacon too drop my first two pods.

Shrike -195

Assault Squad-10xSgt w/ Powerfist-215

4x Scout bikes-Powerfist,Locater Beacon, 3xGrenade Launcher-190

10x Tactical Squad-Sgt w/powerfist, Meltagun-195
Drop Pod-35

10x Tactical Squad-Sgt w/powerfist, Meltagun-195
Drop Pod-35

10x Tactical Squad-Sgt w/powerfist, Flamer-195
Drop Pod-35

10x Tactical Squad-Sgt w/powerfist, Flamer-195
Drop Pod-35


Also a note on the Flamers-they could easily be swapped for melta guns depending on who im playing, I just made this the sort of take all comers and thought it might be good when I play against the nids or orks or even the IG.

Ok even though nobodys replied Thought I would post a question. I kept a hvy weapon out of the marine squads...I did it so I could the maxiumum number of bolter shots when I landed....I was thinking though Maybe I should give them all the free missle launcher and combat squad them giving me four squads with a missle launcher in the beginning of the game...


Thoughts?

At 1500 pts I think you need more ranged anti tank. Sure you have powerfist but any smart commander will keep his tanks moving at least 6" if not more to help reduce the amount of hits you will get. Not sure what you should throw in but I think you are too heavy on the troops and light on the anti tank.

Agreed, was talking it over at Dakka Dakka and decided I should put in a missle Launcher in the squads and combat them out so I have more anti tank. Was also gonna have some meltas on the scout bikes most likely.

How about assult terminators? I really love the models but I dont want to have to put them in a raider? anyone think they are good on foot?
