Hello everyone !!

yesterday Gw released an Errata/Faq for Iron Hands and Raven guards.

Iron Hands errata

Raven Guard errata

Off course what's matter are the nerf to Iron Hands :


  • Ironstone, now limited to one tank within 3"

  • 5++ bubble from Iron Father limited to infantry

  • 4+ Counter SPell is now 2cp

  • the Overwatch on 4+ is now 2cp as well

  • Repair stratagem can't target twice the same model

  • Psychic Repair power can't target a tank already repaired this turn

Sound like a well made nerf, not too big but still significant enough to save the Meta ^^ My only gripe is Machine Empathy, with Blessing of the Omnimessia being range 1" it's hard to use on 2 targets :/.

I still think Iron Hands are one of the best but now you can try the double Primaris Heavy Plasma unit with 5++ 6fnp reroll 1 move and fire bla bla bla...

/Cheers.

Warhammer 40000 Raven Guard Review

Small thumb shrike sep13 feature sh8k3 320x320

Hello everyone !!

Today on pre-orders are 2 new codex supplements for Warhammer 40000 Space Marines Armies. Raven Guard and Iron Hands, this post is about the Raven Guards. I mean who doesn't love Space Ninja?

Introduction

This codex is a thin(80 pages) hardcover book. It's standard GW quality so there is nothing wrong about it.
The 3 main parts of the book are The fluff, the model's pics and the rules!
If iron Hands codex was the hammer this one would be a scalpel ^^

fluff

The first 40 pages of the book are dedicated to the Chapter presentation. It's quite complete with a lot of details on the different companies and units. There are also details on the what happened at isstvan V, Ravenfall, the Genetic Manipulation Corax tried to do and some other stuff. Decent fluff.

Oops


Raven Guards codex rules review preview

Yea sure Precognition


Raven Guards codex rules review preview

It's always hard to swallow that Near Precog Primarch were at Isstvan 5 ^^

An army of Heroes !

In this section, we are shown different Space Marines Models Painted in black ^^

Rules

One new general ability, a few warlords traits, some relics, more stratagems, and 6 psychics powers.

Surgical Strike


Raven Guards codex rules review preview

This power is at the Heart of a Raven Guard game plan ! Snipe/take out Aura & buff bot and then clear the rest of the army. it's a sound plan considering the amount of popular buff combo. Still, I am not sure that +1 to hit and wound is enough to allow this plan. But it' a good start !

Warlord Traits

There are 6 extra Traits that you can choose from.


  • No overwatch on the warlord (it's Shrike one)

  • Redeploy one inf unit and infiltrate

  • Buff bubble : Run and Charge within 6"

  • Unmodified 6 deal 1 additional mortal wound

  • Fly when falling back, charge and shoot after fall back

  • Teleport your warlord once per game 9" from ennemy

Off course the Run and Charge is strong but the No overwatch is super handy to tie in strong firebase

Relics

2 list here, one for Raven Guards: Relics of Ravenspire and one for Successor & Raven Guards: Special Issue Wargear.

Relics Of Ravenspire


  • Ebonclaws : ap-3 d3, reroll wounds and one extra attack (replace 2 LC)

  • Shadow armor : Ignore ap if ap is -1 and unmodified hit rolls of 1 2 3 always fails

  • Raven Skulls : One reroll per turn

  • Raven Fury : Jump Pack, run and charge, reroll charge and Mw on 4+ during a charge

  • Ex tenebris : Assault 3 stalker bolter, can snipe, +1 hit, ignore cover

  • Super Knife : s+1 ap-2 d1, 1 extra attack, Damage 3 vs Characters

Raven Guards codex rules review preview

Yea nothing crazy. Still, Ex tenebris is decent to snipe frail target.

Special Issue Wargears

Mantle : 5+ FNP
Artificer armour : 2+/5++
MCW : +1dmg to one weapon
Digital weapon: one extra attack dealing 1mw if hit
Magic Cloack : 3+ invul in terrain ^^

Stratagems

Raven Guard have a good selection of Stratagem ! you are going to need CP a lot I think.

2 pages of Stratagem, most interesting are :


  • Infiltrators 1cp : before first round, free move but must end more than 9"

  • Raven Blade 1cp : Choose one ennemy unit, reroll charge on it

  • Lay Low the Tyrants 1cp : +1 to wounds against Characters or Non vehicule with 4 wounds or more

  • Remain unseen 1cp : Choose one unit, If you didn't shoot with the unit, it get -1 to hit. Kind of cool to hold an objective

  • Ambush 1cp : Infiltrate at the end of the movement phase

  • Strike from the skies1cp : One jump pack unit can run and charge and +1 to charge distance

As you can see you have a large selection of Infiltration and Movement tricks. Can you pull off assassination and stuff with them? it's all about your skill to play the game so in a sense it's interesting.

This Stratagem is going to be great with Smash Captain or JP units going after sturdy target.

Raven Guards codex rules review preview

let check the Umbramancy Psychic table now

Umbramancy Psychic

There is one effective combo here: Envelloping Darkness. Prevent Overwatch and minus 1 to hit roll. Then use Shadowstep to Teleport back to safety, or charge, or do something cool. It's vital if you plan to charge into an Iron Hands bastion waiting for you with a 3+ reroll 1 overwatch salvo.
Raven Guards codex rules review preview

That's it for the Raven Guard rules lets check the unit now!

Unit

Kayvaan Shrike


Raven Guards codex rules review preview

He's a quite strong actually, very good pistol sniping and dealing extra mortal wounds on 6+ (so 5+ against characters). Powerful charge potential, 7 attacks on charge with +1 +1 to hit and wounds vs characters, stack nicely with lay low the tyrant for another extra +1 on wound rolls. As the claw allow wound reroll at worse it's 3+ with reroll.

Chapter Master bubble and Charge reroll bubble help as well.

Conclusion, good stuff & Combo

Target Sighted Stratagem from the Space Marines codex is vital, it will cost 3CP but allow Stalker Intercessor to snipe and deal extra mortal wounds on 6+ (so 5+). It's expensive but with the new Stalker bolt rifle, you will get a lot of value out of it. Don't forget to split shooting if you need to.

Scout Squad with sniper rifles and camo cloak they are not very expensive, they infiltrate, shoot at 36", Snipe, deal mortal wound on 6+, get a 2+save in cover and -1 to hit. If Dev doctrine is up you also get Ap -1

Eliminator Squad Off course Eliminator are awesome with Raven Guards. They are Amped up scout ! At 63 points only per unit they are always a good investment.

To conclude, the game plan for Raven Guards is removing Characters asap and charge in with: Smash Captain, Vanguards, Phobos ....

Any question ? ask away !

/Cheers.
Bob.

Hello everyone !!!

Following the preview from yesterday about the Iron Hands Codex. Today is the Raven guard ! To be Honest the Iron hands mini codex feel super strong, and i wonder if the Ninja Space Marines are getting the same power level.

Raven Guard Chapter Tactics


From the Space marines codex, Raven Guard have a chapter tactics already granting :

  • While more than 12" from the shooter you gain cover

  • If already in cover and not a vehicule -1 to hit for the shooter

Raven Guard Chapter Tactic is fluffy and strong already i am not sure what to think of Surgical Strikes :

Raven Guard codex rules

Being limited to Tactical Doctrine mean it doesn't work during the first turn. It affect with shooting and melee attacks. It's actually very strong against some list that uses very big Characters! or with Eliminator

Warlord Trait


Raven Guard codex rules

Very cool for a Smash Captain

Relics


Raven Guard codex rules

Ok i get the message, i'll make a Smash Captain !

Psychic Power

Raven Guard codex rules

One Raven Guard Character, so it's interesting to TP the RR bubble or Launching the Smash Captain ^^

Stratagem


Raven Guard codex rules

Expensive but it's super strong with Vanguard Jump Pack unit or Maybe a Primaris one ?

Conclusion

Raven Guard codex rules

Actually The Raven Guard fluff interest me so into the book, but heh the content is light ^^

Chapter Focus: Raven Guard

Tags : warhammer 40 000 v8 space marines raven guard

Small thumb rgchapterfocusimage1

Hello everyone

Raven guard tactics :

Chapter tactics :

Shrike chapter master buff :


Kayvaan Shrike, now promoted to Chapter Master of the Raven Guard, allows fellow Raven Guard jump pack units to reroll their charge ranges, helping your Assault Squads, Vanguard Veterans and Inceptors close the distance on key enemy units.

Reivers Grapnel and Gravchute :


Reivers, on the other hand, are a versatile and powerful unit in a Raven Guard army and function well with other assault units; they’re almost as mobile as jump troops with their grapnel launchers and grav-chutes, with some handy abilities like Terror Troops and shock grenades.

Warlord trait


If you want to make your own Raven Guard characters, their unique Warlord Trait, Silent Stalker, prevents enemies from firing Overwatch,

Relic


the Raven’s Fury Chapter relic allows a jump pack character to move at blistering speeds and reroll charge ranges – combined, you’ll have a potent and deadly character assassin.

New stratagem


Strike From the Shadows. You’ll want to pack as many command points as you can into your list to take full advantage of this, allowing you to hold units back at the start of the game and deploy them anywhere more than 9″ away from the enemy just before the game begins.

Holy shit there some exiting news there !
