Icon 500 Points. Second Attempt.

Archon
- Power Weapon
75 pts.

Raider Squad (9)
141 pts.

Raider Squad (10)
- Splinter Cannon
160 pts.

Ravenger
- Night Shield
115 pts.

496 point total.


Archon follows one unit of Warriors, while Raiders deploy units at strategic points. Raiders then use Dark Lances to destroy any heavy support. Ravenger uses multiple disintegrators to destroy any heavy infantry or MEQs.

CC please.

I'm back! Though you probably never noticed I was gone or cared. Who gives a damn though? I'm back, anyways.

At this points cost I'd make the Ravager a Lance boat instead. Anything with a 2+ save is going to be very limited in number, so once you've popped any vehicles then 5 Lances should do the trick just as well.

And I'd drop the nade launcher to make the second Warrior squad 10 men with a Cannon.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

Hm. Alright. However I already have the 2 Lances from the Raiders, which should be more then enough to destroy any tanks in a 500 point game? Hm. The disintegrators were there more as a safety, to destroy and infantry to the raider squads can steal objectives. Do you still think I should make it a Lance boat? Bleh. Thinking about all this is hard. >_<

Vs Armour Value 12, you need 2 hits to cause a damaging result, and one in three damaging results is a kill. Therefore you need (on average, approximately) 6 Lance shots to kill one vehicle.

At 500 points most people have 2 vehicles at best, so if you have 5 lances, they should all be dead by turn 3 at the worst. That leaves you 2-3 turns to pour fire into any heavily armoured infantry (and frankly, 15 Lance shots should kill anything bar TH/SS termies).

On the other hand if you have Dizzies, you get 2 lance shots, so every two turns you get to roll on the damage chart (on average, approximately), so you'll destroy one vehicle by turn three and another by turn 6. Not quite so impressive.

90% of people think they are above average.
