Good evening to you all!
I trust everyone is having a fruitful and hobby filled weekend?
Personally, I have been thinking a lot about fliers and how well they work in 30k games. I have personally yet to use one in a game and have only faces Lightning strike fighters and Xiphon interceptors. Having an infantry heavy Raven Guard army, I have been able to simply ignore them as pests, as I don't really use tanks and they have seemed to have little effect against my troops in the games so far.
I do however, think that they look really cool and so have decided to pick myself up a Fire Raptor and a Xiphon. I'd like to think that the Xiphon would come in handy for.... well... intercepting enemy aircraft (shock horror), but they are also hopefully good against enemy armour too. Whereas I'm hoping my Fire Raptor will prove useful against light armour and infantry.
I may have got a little bit keen and started work on my Fire Raptor and I am pleased to say, it is almost done.
Here it is, zooming over the battlefield in search of some traitor scum!
What are your thoughts on fliers, guys? Please comment with how useful you think they are and how you use them. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter!
Strike from the shadows.
