Stormraven Hints and Tips?

Post by PurityinFlames on Sun Jul 28, 2013 11:56 am


I'm going to be taking a Stormraven on Saturday against orks - I've gone for a heavy bolter, assault cannons and hurricane bolters (with psybolt)

I've never used one before - but I'm playing someone who is relatively new to the game. Anything I need to be aware of, any tricks and tips

My main plan is to hit the mobs of lootaz with my Callidus and then use the Raven to deal with boys and other stuff.

Against orks I would keep the m.melta, they still have some armour, from what you have said you are on the right track, keep it as a flyer for as long as you can and just shoot the things which can take you out first. With flyers the normal thing is to come on from one corner of the board as they have a large min movement and can be blocked and forced to fly away or change into a skimmer.
If he is new just try not to be to hard on him, it will all depend on his list and they type of person he is (the mosr important thing is for both people to enjoy the game). The stormraven is also the best thing we have to take out his flyers.

+1

2nd target priority would be any battle wagons/transports he may have. You want to maximize shooting him before he gets to your lines and stopping his transports early will force him to footslog.

Once they start foot slogging every single gun you are fielding will punch right on through the common Ork's armor. I once played a Ork playing friend of mine. T-Shirt Saves (6+ Armor Saves) mean nothing to bolters and storm bolters. So putting more emphasis on what Rivan and first strike said:

Once his flyers and vehicles are gone point every single gun at the Boyz and unload. But to take out the vehicles I'd keep multi-melta, that way you have an answer to vehicles and IMHO the Assault Cannon is better at popping infantry then a heavy bolter. Assault Cannons with Psybolt can also glance Battle Wagons and flyers to death. I've done it to many many vehicles. It never gets old. Twisted Evil

The good news is, I'm taking The Nutcracker, my reliable anti-mech dreadnought and have plenty of Jokaero!
