How many models of reavers does it take to block a transport vehicle from falling back or disembark units? Was thinking of using them as a "blocker" unit, disable a transport vehicle turn one by locking it in combat with no option to fall back or disembark the units, while rest of of the army kills everything else.

Also depends on if you have them in 1 unit or multiple units. Technically any square non flying vehicle can be blocked by 2 units of 2 I think. Just put them at 2 opposite corners? He cannot turn without moving your guys and cannot go back forth or sideways since there is always at least 1 reaver in the way?

I ran 3 reavers with an agonizer and bonus move. Worked perfectly as objective takers. The enemy had to send small forces against them and my bikers looked really resilent in a fight with a Kopta and then with 20 Gretchins. But I think I'd better take one more Venom for 90~ points. The same 6 wounds with much better survivability and damage output.
