It can be tricky sometimes with just 4 fliers I can't imagine plotting out the flight routes for 8. Navigate with caution!

Yes, I can imagine lots of crashing before I get the hang of it, but hey, sending your own men to a fiery death full of warp energy and scrap metal is just part of the fun!

You've broken the rule of three...

Right...the "Rule of Three", if you're not aware: If your opponents/gaming group are using the Big FAQ rules then you are limited to no more than 3 of any non-Troop unit, so you'd have to scale down to 3 Razorwings and 3 Voidravens.

But honestly...that might be a blessing. I'm not the Napoleon of 40k by any means but I feel like driving with FOUR fliers can be a little tricky sometimes, maybe start with a bigger Air Wing than usual and scale up from there or 'settle' for two Air Wings of 3 ?

Keep in mind that once your non-fliers are destroyed, that's it for you...if I'm your opponent I'm sinking everything I've got into your Ravager, Raider, and Venom, and all I need to do to defeat your 6-8 fliers is move obnoxiously.

Shrink the number of fliers for sure. I'm amending my two cents haha.

You both make good points, thank you for bringing these to my attention! Mostly I just wanted to go crazy with planes, and ended up going a little too crazy =P

Thanks again guys, I'll make some edits and perhaps post them on here if you're interested.

I also have another post on here for another list I've made, if you're so inclined to check that out as well. (Shameless plug)

Best wishes!
