Welcome to Drukhari "Unit of the Week" series.

Each week a different unit will appear, with the idea being that we discuss how best to use that model on the battlefield. This series will focus on Codex entries initially. If/when we exhaust those possibilities, we will start looking at Forgeworld and Legends if people are interested in those units.
These threads are not to discuss proposed changes to units or long complaints about poor behaviour. I would like to keep them constructive and focus on making the best use of the units as they stand. Inevitably, in a codex as large as ours, there is going to be some overlapping of battlefield roles. For this reason, I will allow comparisons against other units that fill similar roles provided the posts remain primarily focused on the unit under discussion.
Mentioning other units in the context of synergies and army building is of course permitted (even encouraged). This week's entry are:

What are you thoughts here folks? How best would you use Ravagers?
  • To compliment a list, or to build a list around?
  • Will you be running multiple units?
  • Which weapon options are you taking and are they affects by the above?
  • Are you buffing this unit? If so, how?
  • Stratagems of note?
Over to you.

Should you want your model on display here (or on another thread from the series), then submit a photo here please.
Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

Still not sure where my Ravager is, maybe I never had one. This is why you shouldn't sit on kits for years... I think the model is pretty cool and will add some much needed heavy fire power to a DE list but I am wondering about how well this matches up with its durability? I feel this may be why you don't seem to hear about the model much.


Does it also suffer from the fact that a Raider while only having a third of the fire power provides an essential transport role? When you factor in how many Raiders a list may have this probably covers a fair portion of the heavy weapons need, without putting three eggs in a basket.


Perhaps a Ravager as a support role in larger lists is an idea? Maybe with Disintegrators to make it less attractive for enemy AT and give it a dedicated role? Curious to hear from others on their thoughts and experiences.
