Hi guys,

 

so got a doubles tournament coming up in August and decided on Raven Guard, my partner is taking Salamanders.

 

Obviously I have no control over what my partner takes, however it looks solid:

 

Praetor, Cataphractii Armour, Paragon Blade, Dragon Scale Shield

 

5 Firedrakes

 

2 x 10 man tacticals

 

Spartan

2 x Predator - melta turret, flame sponsons.

 

 

My list looks like this currently:

 

ROW: Decapitation Strike

 

+ Alvarex Maun - Cameoline -145pts

 

+ Contemptor-Cortus - Dreadnought Chainfist, Close combat weapon, 2 x grav guns - 175pts

 

+ Mor Deythan - Artificer Armour on Shade, 5 x combi weapon - flamers?, Rhino - dozer blade - 220pts

 

+ 2 x Tactical Squad - 10 man, Artificer Armour, Power sword, vexilla - 330pts (165pts each)

 

+ Anvillus Dreadclaw - 115pts

 

+ Seeker Squad - 10 man, Artificer Armour - 265pts

 

+ Fire Raptor Gunship - Armoured Ceramite, Reaper Auto Cannons, Hellstrike Missiles - 250pts

 

Total: 1500pts

 

The plan was for Maun to join the seekers and infiltrate somewhere with good vantage points.

 

2 Tacticals to infiltrate into cover near objectives to either claim them first turn or wait out/provide fire support.

 

The Contemptor drops in the anvillus first turn, flat outs to cover near one of my opponents big tanks or a priority target.

 

Mor Deythan infiltrate, scout in their rhino, move 6", disembark 6" and use fatal strike to unload 5 twin linked, rending flamers at something first turn

 

Seekers to unload AP2 on any terminators etc

 

Dreadclaw drops the Contemptor 2nd turn to go eat a tank of tie up a difficult unitwhile other elements move into position.

 

Fire raptor comes in 2nd turn (re rollable 3+) and starts smoking tanks and power armour.

 

All this hopefully alongside the inevitable advance of the Salamanders where hopefully (if our opponent is smart) they'll be chucking a lot of firepower at the Spartan.

 

With the option to re roll the dice to see who deploys first/ goes first and a re roll to seize the initative, should cause some havoc across the board as a lot of moving parts and differing target priority.

 

Let me know any opinions

 

Cheers

List looks pretty solid actually! If you can find points to put a multi-melta on the Rhino, you'd be golden! Maybe drop the AC from the Fire Raptor - not really necessary.

And yes, combi-flamers on the Mor Deythan will be brutal. :)

Cheers man, swapped AC on the raptor for a multi melta and extra armour on the rhino
