Currently, I have 3 Phobos pattern and 2 ravens with bolster sponsons. I'm trying to figure my best options for what to field in/with them. Thinking of using ravens as gunships only. It's a little herohammery, but was considering 2libbies, a chappie and priests to go with Ras in LRs. Could be either very potent or pathetic...Some advice would be appreciated, thanks.:)

You already have a lot of points tied p in the raiders and ravens even with minimal squads, no need to go overboard. 

 

I'd say add a single unit to each raven, either a dread or small squad to capture objective late game, even scouts will do.

Thank the dark gods, I've wanted to run a LR spam since I first picked up the BA codex.  It's become a definite curiosity for me, how would this work?  One of the best options I actually came up with was making it an AV13+ Spam, using 3 or 4 Assault squads in Raiders, then Predators and Baal's as support. The Baals along with taking LR Crusaders deal with infantry, while a standard LR and AC/LC predators deal with armor/flyers. I don't have the list in front of me, but it truly looked like it would work, barring a few nasty army lists (necron and tau primarily) 

 I got half way to making the army as well, I have 4 land raiders sitting on the shelf waiting to see what I do with them lol
