Last tournament flop I ran into some issues of being to much of a gunline army and got stomped by Custode Jetbike Captains BA Captains.

As I haven't played much in my own meta I got a nice taste of what everyone likes to bring.
Of the 13 players 8 or so ran Custode Bike Captains, Trajann, and a Castellan with various flavors of filler.

Boy howdy did I get slapped so hard Round 1 and I got a bye Round 2

I got a chance to run this list over the weekend vs my normal opponent (guard gunline) and ended up doing decent. I did end up killing 3 of my bikes due to overcharging and unlucky rerolls.

Overall Tactics:

Ravenguard- Pretty typical gunline castle. Majority of the army bunkers down in some ruins and shoots while reroll bubbles and banner hang out in the middle. Intercessors move forward and cap any midfield objectives. Thunderfire cannon shoots and either targets not visible or uses the strat to slow down enemy models.

Ravenwing - This is where I am not sure. I am very new to Dark Angels. Basically everything but the scouts go together buffing each other. Librarian casts aversion on priority targets and smites. Bikes advance forward T1 typically and uses the strat to move, shoot, and charge while making the plasma +1 damage.


Tear up the list! Find holes in the please!

Thanks for looking!
