to add to this in the appocalypse book there is a pyshcich choir formation which could be really good to use for this list aswell..i think its tigerius and 5 libbriains..that should make is semi competitive and fluffy seeing as how the ravens have large numbers of psykers

so trying to get this list to work..becuse the libbys have to be on the table most of the time to cast the powers im thinking maybe a hybrid list would work better..with like foot sloggers with a ton of vindicators to back them up.. something like that...

ok..so it seems im just thinking out loud...but upon further thought..i believe the only way to make this list work is by making it a full droppod list..its the best way to make use of the LIbbys power strike..
i would need to take the MOTF so i can take 3 dreads which is cool...so that would leave me using the iron hand tactics?? and leave the tiggybomb as the formation..

so where to go now....??

so here is the first attempt list..
bloodravens captain boreale steel rain list
using the clan ruklan supplement.

hw: Boreale chapter master AA axe of medusa 175(may just give him a relic blade)
command squad 4 x grav guns
droppod 195
troops: 5 x tac plasma gun
pod 120
5 x tac plasma gun
pod 120
Elite: 5 stern
pod 160
fast : 9 RAS vet sgt LC
pod 178(boreal goes here?)
heavy: 3 x iron clad dread + pods 510

Formation: tiggy + 4 L2 psykers + pod 540

so this gives me
9 pods
35 bodies
4 scoring units..2 troops + 2 pods
3 walkers for anit mech/hord
non AA
11 + warp charges and a whole lot of hurt....depending on powers taken.
what do you think...

I'll bite I guess, though I don't have much to say on the lists. I don't feel like Space Marines can actually bring the Psychic might, though you have stacked it up with a fair amount of ML points. Weren't the Blood Ravens an Imperial Fist successor?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.
