My HQ is a praetor with cameleoline cloak and Ravens talon. Think I will march him forward with my foot tactical squad. Then I have a drop pod coming in for a tactical insertion!
The recon squad and Mor Deythan will perch on higher ground taking potshots to take out commanders and valuable units.
I have chosen a Contemptor for a bit of extra firepower and to try to get in and mince up tanks.
Fast attack comprises a Darkwing Storm Eagle and javelin for some fast moving heavy weapons able to cause a bit of havok. The Dark Furies can leap around and support the other foot soldiers.
Heavy Support is a single Sicaran (fast tank) which is a nice option for taking on fast moving units and tanks alike.
Of course Corax hisself will be there...probably mincing around with the Dark Furies!!
I hope you have enjoyed reading as much as I have enjoyed planning. Sorry for the pants bauble...my transfers haven't turned up in time. It's the first one I will redo next year lol.
