So in my 1500 point list I have 4 Squads of kabalites in raiders with Splinter Cannons and blasters. One squad has the Archon armed with a blaster in place of a Cannon, all the raiders have some upgrades. 2 Ravagers and a Squad of Reaver Jetbikes.


I need someones opinion.

If I cut points down on unneeded upgrades I can either have a 3rd Ravager or a 5th squad of kabalites armed the same as the other four.


I know this seems pretty trivial, but which do you think I should choose?

Personally a third ravager, turn 1 AT Is massively important for us. Also invest in at least a couple of venoms.

A third Ravager never goes amiss You have plenty of AI there, so I'd also recommend that you take Blasters or Heat Lances on your Reavers if you're not already doing so. Smile

Thanks Archons. A Third Ravager is probably what I'll do. I bought a Ravager box a few days ago and only thought about it because i had spare Dark elves to convert some warriors and could also make a raider with the box.

@Cavash - Generally I take blasters on my Reavers anyway, but I've never used heat lances before. I should take a second glance at them.

@Crazy_Ivan - I dunno, I'm personally not a fan of Venoms. Call me old fashioned, but Raider squads were always my favorite.

I agree, the Raider with Warrior, Splinter Rack and Splinter Cannon is my favourite layout, I just think sacrificing one Raider Squad is good for a Ravager.

I'll vote for the Ravager too!

With the heat lance, it's just a little cheaper and with reavers coming in at 22 pnts each it helps not too tip over multiples of 10, so hence makes a difference. IE 3 reavers and blaster = 81. 3 Reavers and HL = 78. How often do you find a list to = 1502 points?

Also with the HL, obviously has melta status, so you would be unlucky too roll a 1 or 2 to = or be misus re strength Vrs the blaster

If I were you I'd maybe think a little about the loadout for your kabalite squads, do you really want a blaster and a splinter cannon in the same squad? Shooting at vehicles you're wasting the SC, shooting at infantry the blaster doesn't do that much more damage than a splinter rifle. I'd be inclined to take blasters in 5 man squads with no other upgrades, and cannons in ten man squads.

That's where the venoms suggested come in handy, as you can stick a 5-man blaster squad in the back and the cannons have the range to still hit infantry.

I'm not usually a fan of taking three identical units of anything (personal preference) so have you considered the voidraven or a razorwing? Unless your opponent is rocking skyfire they can draw a lot of fire before taking damage, because people are so afraid of the missiles (particularly horde armies as their save tends to be rubbish)
