I like how you left off the 3+ save and we still don't care.

To be fair, we also left off the point cost. Razz

I run mine in 16 units of 3 with caltrops and a blaster.

It works very well. Having so many small units prevents me from losing too many to a single round of fire. Unless a unit can split fire they can only ever kill three (blast and flame weapons being the exception ) but I can still charge 3, 4 or 5 units in to one of theirs. I like to think of them as A pack of wolves, none of them are particularly dangerous by themselves but together they become very threatening.

More to the point, that's either 3 RSR detachments or 6 CADs. Shocked

3 RSRs.  at 1850 points I run that and managed to sneak in 12 Eldard wind riders with scatter lasers and autarch on a bike.

It actually works very well. I think I'm something like 12 and 2

With so many of them flying around, are you ever tempted to give some of them a heat lance for variety?

I do like the heat lance. However I'm going with the blaster mostly for its versatility. Heat blintzes are great against vehicles, but they do very little against monsters creatures, and gargantuan. And those are the things that are the most difficult to kill with the Reavers

I'd say with the amount of reavers you're working with, and their rending HoW, Blasters and using H&R if any survive, they're probably the best we'll ever have against things like Wrathknights.

Not to argue that they're *good* against them, but they'll probably have better success than most of our stuff.
