Auspex, Mace of Redemption, Space Marine Bike

-Sammael (200pts)
Jetbike

-Ravenwing Command Squad (245pts)
5x Black Knight, Ravenwing Apothecary, Ravenwing Company Banner, Ravenwing Grenade Launcher

-Ravenwing Command Squad (300pts)
5x Black Knight, Devastation, Ravenwing Apothecary, Ravenwing Champion, Ravenwing Grenade Launcher

Troops:
-Ravenwing Attack Squadron (182pts)
4 Bikers, 2x Meltagun, Attack Bike with MultiMelta

-Ravenwing Attack Squadron (Troops) (216pts)
6x Ravenwing Bikers, ATtack Bike with MultiMelta

-Ravenwing Attack Squadron (Troops) (216pts)
6x Ravenwing Bikers, ATtack Bike with MultiMelta

Fast Attack:
-Ravenwing Darkshroud (80pts)
Heavy Bolter

Heavy Support:
-Devastator Squad (145pts)
3 Flakk Missile Launchers

So basically the list I put forwards, with a landspeeder vengeance?

If you wanna do that, be my guest, but in my opinion the Landspeeder vengeance is a piece of trash that has a decent chance of glancing itself to death doing a role that other units do much better.

The vengeance would be so cool if it wasnt for gets hot. They really need to go back to plasmas not overheating vehicles. You'd think a relic vehicle from 10000 years ago would have sufficient cooling systems to not destroy itself after statistically 2 volleys.

Head over to the ravenwing tactica thread, you'll find lots of support there.

No kidding. The Executioner Plasma Cannon, which is the standard armament on a comparatively common Imperial Guard tank, doesn't have to worry about overheating, but the Chapter with the most advanced technology regularly fields Land Speeders with overheating plasma weapons which are likely to melt them to slag before a battle's over?

Yes, apparently. Makes sense to me.

I'd rather take a Librarian with the Power Field Generator instead of the Chaplain, and no Devastators. Use Dreads, Prescienced Speeders, the Nephilim or allied SM flyers for AA.
