I'm trying to find units to include in my Raven Guard army that can satisfy my lack of dedicated melee. Currently, any unit that I have who has decent close combat performance is already serving some other role.
Right now I'm considering a squad of Vanguard Veterans outfitted with jump packs, storm shields, thunder hammers (3), and power mauls (2). Looks like they'd cost about 150 points with this set up. Are they worth it? Is there a better unit for the job?
The plan would probably be to deep-strike them along with my Librarian in Terminator Armor, and use Might of Heroes on them, buffing the hammers from Strength 8 to 10 (unless I'm misunderstanding how that works?), and giving everyone an extra attack. I've also got a unit of Suppressors who can cancel out my opponents Overwatch if they successfully kill a model in the unit being charged. Depending on what I decide to throw them at, it seems like it could be a deadly combo.
But I've only got a handful games under my belt, so I know I could easily be overlooking a number of things. Thoughts?
