3k Black Reaving

Recommended Posts

Currently thinking through the basic unit choices, but the rough list is:

Praetor with Jump Pack

Master of Signals



5 man Justaerin

Contemptor Dred

10 man vets in a Drop Pod, Shotguns and banestrikes with a few PWs

3 Apothecaries, 2 with Jump Packs


2x 10 man Reaver Aggressor (artificer on the Chieftain, a vexilia, and some scattered melee weapons)

10 man tactical squad with chain bayonets


2 Sabers

2x 5 man Seekers with Krakens


2 Sicarans


This all comes out to about 2900, giving me wiggle room on exactly how many special weapons go where, but the thing I want input on is the overall design of the list. My thinking is that I want to lean into the Deep Strike Black Reaving incentivizes and the to do that, I'm thinking a squad of Justaerin and two Reavers should do the job nicely. The vet squad is mostly there as a means to bring a drop pod so I can abuse the Inertial Guidance system. The Dreadnought, Tac Squad, Seekers, and tanks provide board presence until the deep strike, but I can see replacing the vets with a dread and a dread drop pod, which would potentially allow for a 20 man tactical squad. I'd love to fit more tanks in there (or a Spartan), but I don't think that's productive.

What do you guys think? Too much invested in the Deep Strike? Something better to bring?

The best usage of this RoW in my mind is using the Assault Reavers with Jump Packs as troops, followed by a support squad for the MoS. Vehichles aren't very good in this RoW, you are better off taking jetbikes for MM.
