Reaper>3 lance ravager. But I don't take lance ravagers cuz they suck. Only way to run them is dissies and leave scourge, blaster born and reapers for anti tank

Well I think you are right. The reaper is better than the ravager against hordes. But against normal vehicles or super heavys I don't know. You only have one "big" shoot with the reaper than you need to hit with and "wound" with. The lance ravager have 3 shoots. Without doing the math, you have about 2/3 chance of hitting and if you want the 5+ kill shot about 33 % chance of than and against vehicles you probably do 2 hull points. The ravager have the same hit change so 2 shots will hit and against most super heavys a 50/50 chance of wounding. So 1 hull point or wound but you have a explosion chance against normal vehicles.

The reaper is probably like the ravager best in group's of 3...

Nice quick read. Thanks!

You have inspired me to proxy a reaper instead of my usual lance ravager. Even tho I always had dismissed the reaper cos one shot syndrome. Also i agree that hay-scourges rock!

I read the article quickly so correct me if I'm wrong but, in a 1850 list you a running 1 unit of scourge and a reaper. Is that enough anti tank?

I've been playing around with getting a Reaper as I only have two Ravagers at the moment. I've generally enjoyed using some Talos as my third HS because they work well in my Meta and have had some good experiences.

I have been planning on picking up a third Ravager but I may pick up a Reaper now... just to try it out. i can see the value in it as long as you don't have terrible luck with single shot stuff.

Playing against guards, I often thought about trying the reapers, because guards are either mass vehicule, or mass troops and I always have trouble with the good mix of anti-tank and anti-infantry.

Reapers, with the blast template, could serve in both situations. Maybe I'll use it in the future.
