Im working on the Raven Guard!..... At last


Not sure if any of my gaming friends use blogger or not anymore, some seem to have switched to Facecock. I cant bring myself to make an account so will continue with blogger. :)

I couldn't resist buying the new SM dex, yeah its a bloody rip off, has a hard cover, contains the same amount of info as the last dex, but meh, its sexy leafing through it! I just wont buy other new dexs!

The new dex is allowing me to make the list I always wanted, RG traits should work great with the Vanguard and I can give Korvydae Artificer armour!! woooooo dont need the BA book.

Also I have plenty of FW models, so I think I only need to buy a tac squad (in the hope the legs and such are better sculpts than the old ones), Vanguards, Scouts and the Vehicles.

I think I will be around the hobby more now, got a nice steady rhythm with my cycling (although I just had a horrible month with hayfever issues etc - but I did 28 miles in a 20 mph av today so I think I'm back on it!) also a few work colleges have got into the plastic crack also!!

My list:

1.5K Raven Guard List

SM captain (Korvydae) 
Artificer Armour
Thunder Hammer
Jump Pack

Tactical Squad (10)  
Lightening claw
Melta gun
Missile launcher
Drop Pod

Tactical Squad (10)
Lightening claw
Melta gun
Heavy Bolter
Drop Pod

Scouts (8) 
snipers x8

Vanguard (7)
Jump packs
Lightening claws x4
Power weapons x 2
Powerfist x1
melta bomb

Sternguard (8) 
Lightening Claw
4 combis
Drop Pod

Storm Talon 
Typhoon launcher

Storm Talon 
Skyhammer Missile launcher

                                                                                 Total: 1496

Absolutely no idea if that's an effective list for 6th, but from my previous 40k experience, it shouldn't be to bad, may not be the best list RG can field either because of Korvydae, but I think the new dex allows you to move away from character models abit imo. Crit welcome, but  this is a fluff list as Im cack at gaming! Things to consider are Land Speeders, more Scouts and possible dropping the Sternguard for more Vens...

Thanks for looking! Painting starts tomorrow!
