Default Deathwing or Ravenwing And Why?

its either ravenwing with higher speed and toughness or Deathwing with a higher Save and deepstrike whitch you you perfer?

I would personaly like to make a ravenwing army just because of all the possibilitys for cool looking convertions and the thought of having an av14 Correction Jetbike. :P

Well personally I gotta say Ravenwing.

However that's only because I just bought an army. Right now I'm working on assembling my two battle forces. My goal is to have a 1000 point army by the end of April.

If I'm happy with how it turns out I might try expanding it into a combined 1st & 2nd list for tournament play.

But for now I'll be catching the fallen by use the sheer speed of my bikes.

PSHAW, why take a speeder when you can take a JETBIKE!

I can't wait to paint up that model, it looks so awesome I cannot describe.

Deathwing- because I can imagine all kinds of nasty comming out of Death Wing Assault, as well as the fact Terminators in general seem to love me

Both. A combined-arms force in the new 'dex has huge advantages over the normal, pure force.

Abael said it.

But remember both have a long learning curve..

Deathwing.... Why worry about how fast the hammer strikes when the strike is the more important...

Ravenwing rocked in the old Codex, and even with the changes they've undergone I'll stand by my favourite army.
