Storm Raven in non-Blood Angels/Grey Knights

Postby turbo tj » Mon Apr 23, 2012 11:30 am

I was curious if anyone has run into resistance for using a Storm Raven ship in their army that isn't a Blood Angels like army or Grey Knights.
I was sure but when I was @ Adepticon this past weekend I saw a few armies fielding them during the Team Tournament and I was just curious if that was just for the event or has GW posted that it can be taken for any army.

No, given that probably half of the armies there were either blood angels or grey knights, the few you saw were almost certainly part of those codexes, and if they weren't the right colours, it was because the players had used an alternate paint scheme, not an alternate codex.

The bunker for a while had the house rule of just use it if you bought it regarding the storm raven.

That would be awesome if it applied to everything. I'd get a monolith for my orks and a unit of bloodcrushers for my eldar...

Evans ran an AWC tourney in the original series called "The enemy of my enemy" tournament. In it you were allowed to take one non-IC unit from any codex in your list as long as it wasn't more than 250pts. I think Redbeard converted up a Carnifex for his Orks that was awesome. Someone else took a unit of Genestealers and put them in a Land Raider Crusaider.

Heh, yeah, I remember that. The Carnifex looked cool, but since I didn't have any synapse creatures, I could have picked something that worked a little better. I remember one guy had a defiler in his nidzilla army, called him mechagodzilla.

I played in that too. I actually had my Space Marines and had a squad of Eldar Striking Scorpions. They actually out lasted my marine squads in combat with Chaos Marines.

I think the first time he ran that was at Crooked Hat Games. For all the weird combinations Wild Bill called ME a heratic for putiing a defiler with Relictors!
