While shatterfield missiles reroll failed wounds which is excellent against many armies or the wonderful but very expensive ap2 instant death awesomeness. Now a question which one should i take? Btw im using a voidraven bomber.

You shouldn't really be taking missiles on the void raven, it's an AT/AA platform. As for the razorwing the best missiles are the standard missiles (monoscythe) because they are free.

Back to your question though, implosion missiles are pretty terrible and only small blasts. Shatterfield are not bad but lose out on AP5 compared to the standard missiles (monoscythe), when you take into account that flyers can often shoot over aegis defence lines, AP5 becomes quite appealing against large blobs, not to mention you don't pay anything for the missiles (on the razorwing).

In the case of the voidraven I usually took the shatterfields. Same cost as monoscythes and the wound rerolling was forcing more saves, that said my targets are generally all marines, or more recently demons with universal 5+ invul so I wasn't losing out on the ap5. The added str never hurts against vehicles in a pinch, and lets face it sometimes there's nothing else to shoot.

I want to like implosion missiles, I really do. I've tried the full rack along with a list of other absolute nonsense, like caskets, dark gates, hexrifles etc. I figured with low chances of success you just increase the permutations and something rad was bound to happen. I digress. If you see a lot of paladins, thunderwolf cavalry, nobs, mid-sized tyranids (they're out there), tau battlesuits, or 3-wound monsters of any flavor implosion missiles can actually really shine. I wouldn't take a full rack, however. If you're that concerned about these units, I'd recommend one, maybe 2 bombers and put two implosion missiles on each for at least a solid round of shooting out of them. They're just too expensive to bank on any more than that in my opinion. That and void lances/bombs will generally ID or seriously damage the implosion missile's targets anyway so the raven's other weapons and poison from the rest of the army should do the trick.

Looking at the dark eldar "armory" is like looking at a list of middle fingers tailored to certain units. Don't let high points costs discourage you if you see a use for them!

I think the best flyer by miles is a razor with dizzies and stock missiles

Always Shatterfield.

- They're 1/3 of the cost of an Implosion missile.
- They're large blasts, whilst implosion missiles are small blasts.
- They're 1/3 of the cost of an Implosion missile.
- They can be used against light-vehicles. Obviously not the ideal target, but something that can come in handy occasionally.
