Greetings from the Eye. I'm playing in a campaign and I have had two games against my Raven Guard opponent, and I have a third game against the same opponent tomorrow. I feel like every battle is an uphill march for me. His Raven Guard are 100 percent Primaris, so they have an extra 6" of range on all their basic guns, and an extra AP -1 even before the Tactical Doctrine kicks in. They have lots of ways of killing support Characters, even out of line of sight. Sure, I can use the Cloud of Flies stratagem to protect one unit, but that only works on one unit and costs a CP. Once the Tactical Doctrine kicks in the Raven Guard get an extra +1 or +2 (can't remember) to the To Wound roll when they target Characters, and, as mentioned, they have a lot of units that can target Characters outside line of sight and also they don't have to be the closest unit. Simultaneously, Raven Guard units themselves are hard to kill. They have a -1 To Hit in the Shooting phase if they are more than 12" away and touching a terrain piece, which they always are. Eliminators in particular I have had difficulty killing. They effectively have a 1+ Armor Save in cover, they are -1 To Hit, they have 2 Wounds each . . . Last game I threw two Phoetid Bloat Drones at one unit of Eliminators and didn't kill a single Eliminator. Deep Strikes are hard to pull off because the Raven Guard have several ways of shutting down Deep Strike (Phobos Captain, Infiltrators, etc.).
Any tips on how to beat these sneaky crows?
