Just an observation: Voidraven Bombers are more effective as interceptors than Razorwing Fighters. Conversely, our fighters are better at bombing (at least against infantry) than our bombers. Did the codex writers get confused when they wrote these entries? Razz

Yea I noticed that as well. Pretty weird. Maybe a typo?

Well, the Voidraven is the one of the two that comes with a bomb (mine)...

Well, the codex does state that the Razorwing is a ground attack plane rather than an Interceptor (unlike the Craftworld equivalent Nightwing).

Haha, I don't think it's a typo, just a curiosity with how the codex was written and is used. Obviously the Voidraven comes with a bomb, but the Razorwing comes with 4! It just seems strange to me that the bomber comes with fewer bombs by default. Yes you can add missiles but then the bomber costs more to get the same firepower.

I was always disappointed that the Void Mine, which is super hyped up and made out to be the most destructive little ball of death ever... is only as strong as the Void Lances. Why don't we just mount another Void Lance and get to fire it at range? Razz

I really think it should be S10 AP1. It is a one-shot small blast after all, and the fluff makes it sound that good.

Like everything else, you just have to know the units to play them correctly. If DE were easy, everyone would play them! Cool

If DE were easy they would be a Ward'dex.
