Ravager 105
Ravager 105
Ravager 105

1988 Pts      3 Raiders, 3 Ravagers, 1 Venom, 12 Reavers including 13 dark lances, 4 blasters, 2 heat lances.

I know a lot of people won't like the Trueborn with ccw and pistols, but they come stock with 2 attacks which means 4 attacks on the charge.  They are also ablative wounds for the duke and the blaster Trueborn.

The whole army rushes forward except the foot warrior squad and Ravagers.  The Reavers fly around annoying people.  I also really like the chainsnares on the raiders and venom.  Once they have dumped off their troops, they can still chainsnare and hopefully break a few squads in the movement phase and let the shooty parts of the army break them further in the shooting phase.    I like the phantasm grenade launchers on the wyches so they can take out a squad in cover ( I removed the PGLs after realizing that the wyches come with plasma grenades.  I have been playing them wrong! So those are gone).  I also really like agonizers, but wonder if the points would be better spent somewhere else.

I have been busy assembling everything, which isn't too exciting.  I will post what I have built so far, which includes the duke, lelith, the warriors, 12 Reavers, 3 Ravagers, 3 Raiders, the Venom, 10 incubi, and 8/10 trueborn.  Almost there.  Just need to get two more blasters, assemble the wyches and I am good to start painting.
