PostSubject: Should Raiders be Capacity 12?   Wed Aug 13 2014, 04:23

I recently gave one of my Raiders a hard look to see if 10 kabalite warrior sized models could feasibly stand on it. Upon closer inspection I realized that as long as the Warriors didn't try to do yoga on the skimmer, you could reasonably fit 12 plus crew. Would it matter much tactically if we could take 12 models in our Raiders, sure it would be a welcome bonus but would it change much is what I'm asking.

I am very excited by the new 8th edition and what it has brought for Dark Eldar and the game entire.  I am always happy to talk wishlisting and fandexes in any edition from 4-on, although I have to say while I can't wait for our Dark Eldar codex to bring flavor to our fighting forces, I'm not interested in making Dark Eldar as a whole stronger.  I have written multiple Dark Eldar fan codexes (3 and a "mini-fandex" which was totally ridiculous), the latest of which (for 7th edition) can be found here.  I also created a Blood Angels 7th edition fan codex for 7th (and I'm taking ideas for a Blood Angels chapter trait to fan-rule in while my girlfriend and I wait for a full codex), and I have used the Age of Sigmar Kharadron Overlords battletome to create a 40k squat army codex complete with a bunch of Stratagems.

The only real changes would be ability to max out Wyche squads and then add ICs, an additional Grot in a Grot Raider, and an option for a tad bit more dakka if you like Gunboats.

Since Wyches currently are terrible as assault options, Grots don't really need the boost, and the dakka thing is pretty minor...eh. Probably the Grot bomb would get the most boost, and it wouldn't be that big of a shift. I'd probably keep just running 4 of them, myself, but will admit sometimes that feels a bit squishy and I might go to 5 if points allowed.

Wouldn't be a change to most things, really. I rarely max out my Raider capacity as is, and the only people I know who do tend to do it as Gunboats and though they probably would be happy at the extra 2-4 shots I don't think it would really be a game changer.

I saw this and thought, Sliscus approves of this thread.

I think it's reasonable. 12 people would be nice (10 warriors and Sliscus? DEAL!)

I'd happily settle for 11. That would let you have a 10-man squad (Warriors, Wrack or something) and still put in a character.
