Default 1750 Recon Marines. Ravenwing-esque.

Okay so I wanted something Ravenwing-ish without all the drawbacks of a crappy Dex. (Shoot me if you think it's poor form...).


I hope for it to score average comp and be a bit of a challenge to play. Considering I have never played with or against anything like it competitivly, I think it will give me a new experience.


List.


HQ
Captain (Represented by Sammeal Model)
-Bike
-Artificer Armor
-Relic Blade
-Combi Plasma
-Storm Sheild
205

TROOPS
8x Bikers
-2x Melta Guns
-Power Fist
Attack Bike
-Multi Melta
310

8x Bikers
-2x Melta Guns
-Power Fist
Attack Bike
-Multi Melta
310

7x Bikers
-2x Plasma Guns
-Power Fist
245

FAST ATTACK
3x Land Speeder
-2x Typhoon
230

3x Land Speeder
-2x Typhoon
230

3x Land Speeder
-2x Assault Cannon
230

TOTAL: 1750
Comp and Thoughts?

I agree with the crappy codex for dark angels, however, ravenwing has a few unique tricks you can't find in a nilla marine biker force-
apothecary and standard bearer on bikes,
scoring landspeeders
sammael in a jetbike with plasma cannon OR on an av14 twin linked landspeeder
5 strong landspeeder support squads
a scary dawn of war deployment (2 troops consisting of 6 bikes, 1attack bike, and a land speeder)

All in all you have a good list, I would try and fit in a vindicator or two (made me think about getting too close with my deathwing)

As above

Not in Aus they are not (apparently the only thing that dosn't override the rule book in aus though)

Captain is just as good in not better in this case. and an AV 14 speeder still dosnt last long.

With over-priced, crappy wargear.

Obviously you have no idea how dawn of war deployment actually works. It's two troops UNITS, not two troops CHOICES.

Tanks break theme. I am a theme player above all else.



So i've had two games with this list.

both against a list sort of like this.

Shrike
Speeder Storm
2 units of scouts (1 full snipers, 1 half snipers, half combat)
8 scout bikes
2 units of tacticals in drop pods with melta weapons
Dread with asscannon, flamer in pod
unit of 10 assault marines

first game was spear head kill points in which I was capping him 7-0 and he forfeited turn 4.

second game was 4 objectives, pitched battle in which he got first turn. Due to a stupid error on my part, he got a minor win (should have been a draw).

So far i'm happy with it.
