Gravchuting Assassins and Arco Flagellants?

Post by PurityinFlames on Fri Jul 19, 2013 2:29 am


I'm in the midst of building my Stormraven - Coteaz got a gift after tabling 2 CSM forces with only minimal casualties

As it's an Assault vehicle, i'm pondering using it to gravchute assault warbands into the fray - how plausible is this?

Anyone tried it?

I know it's a risk, but I can't wait to see my opponents face when a mob of blood crazed assassins hits the table and leaps into combat...

I wouldn't seeing as you can't deepstrike and then assault. You'd have to pop the raven into hover and use the assault ramp in which case your opponent an see where they're attacking from where the raven finishes in the previous turn.

I was actually thinking the same idea and how to pull it off. You can't assault anyways once you arrive from reserves, so you might as well send the SR zooming onto the board and then shoot as much as you can. Then you should probably w/ jink when it comes down to it and if your SR can survives you have a pretty nasty CC squad. I think it could work but I guess it's all about target priority and determining if you really want to dump that many points into such a hard hitting squad. I'll be sure to test it out.

So the earliest you could get the charge off would be turn 3 and that's dependent on reserve rolls and the Raven surviving a turn of shooting.

There must be a better way to spend 385 points.
