Howdy all,

 

Has anyone had a think about Ridgerunners post Chapter approved? They're so darn cheap and the model is one of my all time favorites so I was looking at packing quite a few into a list.

 

Maybe an Outrider detachment: HiveCult with a Jakal Alphus, 6 Mining laser Ridgerunners and maybe a couple with Mortars to sit in the backfield? Still want to use the brood coven strategem so can't give the Alphus the Hivecult warlord trait, but I was thinking of giving it to the Magus and having her sit back with the Ridgerunners.

 

They seem pretty nasty for their cost now.

Put the toys on the table and throw the dice. Everything else is just noise.

 

...Unless you're just in this for the modeling. In which case, show your work. Yours likely looks better than mine, anyway.

In my list I always take 2 (the number I own lol

 

Even mobile I quite like them. Its effectively a D3 shot las-cannon. For what I found they are fairly good at supporting other multi-wound damage efforts and the substantial (20ish points) decrease REALLY helped them on the table.

I have a squadron of three with mining lasers, theyre great if you can link them up with a Jackal Alphus for the priority target sighted buff.

Yeah, but modeling a Jackal Alphus in Daisy Dukes and a halter top is well beyond my meagre skills. :)
