How does it beat the current top tier lists? White Scars, Tau, Eldar, Daemons, Nids, or any other fast beta strike list that works best on the opponents going first?
...Matt...is that you?Matt Ward is a hated person by most I know, but I have met him many times with long rule chats and even had breakfast with him in gamesworkshop head office Nottingham. Take it from me his a great guy that knows what he is doing, sadly he has left the company as have I.
But it will leave your weapons completely out of range the turn you arrive- something Fragiosos really need to have happen for their points to be made back. The entirety of your T1 assault is template based and doing nothing but DSing behind cover and hoping for the best with Reserve rolls against any gunline army. S6 Rending will fail you against tanks constantly since the AP2 doesn't affect vehicle damage rolls. Your Stormravens can -at the very best- take out two vehicles per turn each starting at the earliest T2 and they are borderline useless against large infantry squads.The good thing about drop pod lists is you land where you want it does not need to be a drop that makes me a sitting duck.
