I always saw using fliers as a crutch, I have used them rarely and fielded only one at a time. Im thinking of fielding all 3 at once now. A bomber and 2 jetfigthers. What do you guys think of that? Is it too much points spent on heavies?

Unless I was facing a ridiculous amount of flyers I would be extremely reluctant to not have any Ravagers in my list as they are our best AT options.

I wouldn't field 3 eighter, as they are fairly expensive and having atleast one Ravager to give some long range anti-tank right from turn 1 is a good idea.

i only ever take one and its entire existance is to be a hard counter to other flyers instead of a soft counter of all of the dark lances ever and hoping for a 6.

the issue i would think would be not having enough long range AT in the first couple of turns but it could be fun.

though i would go 2 bombers as they are better anti tank

I currently field 2 bombers and they are great Smile I would like to put down a Razorwing as a third flyer but I dont have a model for it at the moment.

I say go for it

We have a bomber. We need an actual jet fighter though.

Its a shame the Raven Strike fighter is so expensive points wise if they reduced it to 135 the same cost as a reaper i would definitely field a couple.

I've also wondered why our fliers don't fit into the fast attack slot, every other army seem to have theirs allocated to fast attack.

I will definitely be buying the bomber when it comes to the shelves.

The bomber is a fantastic air superiority fighter just deepstrike behind the enemy aircraft and laugh as you fire S9 AP2 void lances at their AV10 rear armour. Not to mention it's AV11 so immune to bolter fire. The bomber is ironically more like an air to air fighter aircraft. The razorwing on the other hand is more like a bomber/ground attack aircraft.

Cause the fast attack section is crowded enough as is, with reavers and beasts both being awesome. Smile
