BA Skimmer list

K so at my gaming place we do lots of odd style tournaments to try and keep each one different and the upcoming one is going to be a "Shattered Earth" style basically flowes of lava or the void between asteroids depending on your table section off area's of roughly 18" in diameter all across the tables spaced about 4 inches apart these are impassible terrain for ground vehicles and infantry so i'm trying to build an army thats highly mobile but can still carry alot o firepower between islands so i'm building a skimmer list. so... here goes oh and its 1750 points fits up to the point limit rather snugly

HQ Commander Dante

2 Sang priests+JP


5man Sang Guard + Chapter banner

10 man Assault Squad +meltagun+flamer

10 man assault squad +meltagun+flamer

Heavy support
Stormraven Gunship +TL MM+TL PC+HB SS+ EA
Stormraven Gunship +TL MM+TL LC+HB SS+ EA
Stormraven Gunship +TL MM+TL PC+HB SS+ EA

K so combat squads on everything. cause the special rule kicks ass.
We put the half of assault squads with the flamer each into a stormraven with a priest. raven passes over drops the squad deepstrike on an island they fire the raven turns and fires of fires on another target depending on the situation then the squad that was dropped assaults same concept with Dante and his squad of sang guard and we have the remaining half of the two assault squads (with Meltaguns) to either hold the home objective or slowly island hop thier way along the flanks. depending

also i'm thinking i may switch out the sanguinary guard for an honor guard but i'm not sure if i want to loose that 5th scoring unit cause its gonna be rolled whether its an objective match or pitched battle like normal so...
anyway thats whats going on. Thoughts?

That tournament will suck for any ork players...

Looks like fun... One thought though... The other way to approach this is to go with a ton of long range shooting.... Looking at your list above, I think it would struggle against massed shooters... Might be better off going Decent of Angels route...

for the amount of points in 2 of those stormravens, you could get 6 landspeeders (mm + hf), i would go for that for the target saturation, or you could spend some more points and buy typhoons and the like, i think landspeeder spam could work well. also rifleman dreads, plonk em in your deployment and watch 4 tl str 7 shots rip through all skimmers bar hammerheads.

i think your HQs and Elites are a huge points sink: they're good units, but too few, IMO.

for all those points, i think i would take a much cheaper HQ and keep the Sang. Priests if you like and take at least 2 RAS in Razorbacks.

your Storm Ravens are deadly indeed, but at 12" you can only fire 1 weapon, so you'll have to choose (and since getting into assault is the point of these guys, why wouldn't you move 12") you're combat squadding, so your units are small.

yeah, you'll hit hard, but with only 5 MEQs you may not be able to take much punishment.

not to mention you only have three Storm Ravens; concentrating fire power won't be hard to do.

good hunting.
