I'm currently looking at revising my DEldar for 6th edition. I'm probably going to be rolling with Splinter Raiders and Blasterborn in Venoms for the most part. Then I turned my attention to Heavy Support and wondered what would be the best from the following;

3 Ravagers - the old favourite

Razorwing and 2 Ravagers - AA coverage and decent AT

Razorwing, Ravager and Talos - Bit of diversity

2 Ravagers and a Talos

2 Razorwings and a Talos

2 Razorwings and a Ravager

1 Ravager and 2 Taloi

1 Razorwing and 2 Taloi

There is also the consideration about whether to use Void Ravens instead of the Razorwings. Wondering what the collective wisdom of the forum thinks as I've not yet put my DE on the table in 6th.

I would either go 3 ravagers or two and a Razorwing. Depends how much cash you want to splash out really. Ravagers are pretty decent anti tank and have great manoeuvrability compared to other armies attempts. Good all rounders. If you face hordes lots perhaps get a razorwing for those templates.

You miss some load outs, dissie ravagers - lance ravagers. Same with Razorwings.

Well, the specific loadouts are up for negotiation as I'll be fighting new Eldar. I already own three Ravagers, a Razorwing and a Talos.

I think one should look other slots to use points than all three hs. Both eldar and Tau need fast, resilent cc. Sadly talos is slow. I'd take two Ravagers with no upgrades.

Should probably mention this is for a 2k battle so I've got plenty of space. I'll be taking 3 Raider Warrior squads, 10 dudes in each. 1 or 2 Blasterborn squads in Venoms but I may use my second Venom for a Haywire Wych AT squad. 6 Jetbikes, Archon and Incubi Retinue and 2 Haemys.

Not yet, trying pure DE, that way I don't have to spend £30 on the new Eldar book and I can focus on adding models as needed.

Unless you have a lot of haywire scourge, blaster reavers, and lanceborn, three ravagers,
dizzy ravagers, engines and fliers are all cool, but you need those ranged at one way or another.

Posted a list here to go with this thread so you can see my thinking and what else I'm looking to take.
