Default Raven Guard 1850 point list

I have decided to try something a little different, and thought I would give the Raven Guard a shot.* This list is created using the Raven Guard chapter traits listed in Codex: Space Marines (basically allows for extra Fast Attack choices while limiting vehicles).*

I took the Raven Guard special character Kayvann Shrike simply becasue I have the model and it is quite cool. I could shave a few points off my HQ cost by taking a normal Captain with Jump Pack and Lightning Claws, but only a few so I decided to stick with Kayvann. I have set up one of the Assault Squads as tank hunters, with a combi-melta, meltabombs and plasma pistols, while the other two are optimized for anti-personnel work with power fists and flamers. Note that I took the Predator Destructor because the RG don't have access to the Predator Annihilator version.

Obviously, with all those assault marines and land speeders I am hoping to play a very mobile game.* I will try to use these mobile elements to concentrate my forces against a portion of my opponent's army and quickly overwhelm it, then move on, while the Scouts, Tac Squads and Predator provide fire support.

So, any comments?*

I <3 this list. Seriously. ;D

I've got a thing to the jump packs as well, and thought about going Raven Wing with Kayvann too. I want to hear about how well it does in combat. I'm saving the list.

Ouch, as a Tau player I can tell you I would have a lot of trouble with that list. I can usually down assault troops quickly and efficiently but I seriously doubt I could stop all of them, at least some and probably shrike would make it to my lines and using terrain properly probably even more. The tacticals and scouts are also a good take as they will be able to harrass the enemy from forward positions and provide fire support along with the pred.

In my oppinion this is a well built list that would be extremely hard for me to take apart on the field. Looks good, I would love to go up against such a list just to see how I do. Looks like it would be a major challenge.

Smoke Launchers - 3
Nope, the lascannon sponsons are 25pts for the pair, not each. ;D

That was an influence on my choice of this army. I think that lots of Assault Marines (or lots of Bikes) are my biggest fear when facing smurfs. So I thought I'd give it a try!

Thanks for the comments on the list, everyone. I'm looking forward to getting it put together and seeing how it works. ;D
