‘We are the skyborne, the angels macabre, the death that strikes from above. We cut the life-cords of our foes even before they realise the mortal danger they are in. We are the storm incarnate, and we will not be denied.’
– Captain Hougandez of the Mortifactors
This Army is a result of a new passion of mine, Raven Guard Jump and Air power. All jump troops will be embarked on the Flyer Transports, Vanguard on the Raven with my Captain, and the Assault on the Eagle. The scout squad will be in combat squads and flank marching, to keep them safe and late game objective grabbing / line breaking. That will leave my =][= and retinue, alone at the start of the game on the table. Their Transport, a Land Raider Prometheus, has the special rule "Improved Comms", Giving me a +1 on all my reserve Rolls. 74% of my army will be held in reserve and the Prometheus will be vital to getting into the fight in a timely manner. My =][= warlord will also try and use his Divination and WL skill to help guarantee the air cavalry arrives on time. Survive turn 1 is job # 1, Air superiority is job #2 and then let loose the hounds. I am well aware of a glaring weakness in the list, a small number of scoring units. I plan on trying to overwhelm my opponent with Air power so they loose site of my weakness.
I choose to make this a =][= Primary detachment force, though it could have been the other way. It could be played as a SM Primary force with no formation. I know some will not like the high # of and pts spent on flyers. Maybe it is a "flyer spamm" list but i feel it is supported by the fluff. I could, in a pinch, squeeze 15 pts out of my henchmen squad and 5 from my stormwing for a change (maybe a 3rd Servitor with plasma cannon?).
