Having just finished Deliverance Lost, it was time for me to really get down to what the Ravenguard are. The book was OK, and I enjoyed it. I rather really liked the last couple pages though, as it gave you what the Ravenguard really feel like in battle. So on that note it was time to make a list on how I would like to play Ravenguard.

Please note that this is a only a first pass at a list like this. So this is what first passes look like for me.

4 Veteran (Frag Grenades; Krak Grenades; Power Armour; Jump Pack; Melta Bombs; Bolt Pistol; Power Weapon x1)

(3x) 1 Vindicator @ 115 pts ((C:SM, pg. 80 & 143); Unit Type: Vehicle (Tank); Searchlight; Smoke Launchers; Demolisher Cannon; Storm Bolter)

Its quite obvious, but here is the run down. Shrike infiltrates with Vanguard for a deadly first round assault. He is backed up by sternguard deepstriking in to destroy some armour, while razorbacks move forward with las/plas.

Inside the razorbacks are combat squadded tactical marines with locator beacons and plasma guns + combi plasma to rip things up by shooting. (one of the tacticals does not have a locator beacon). The other half of the tacticals are for backfield objectives and armour breakers with their missile launchers.

Obviously the vindicators are there to suck fire, and hopefully get a couple shots off to wreck some damage.

Then we have enough locator beacons (drop pod and 3 of the tacticals) to get the drop on the assault terminators.

With fleet being your combat tactics, this is quite the fun style list. There is obviously some refinement that would need to be done here to be competitive.
