From the Shadows, Brothers

So after spending much time reading the new Ultramarines book with Captain Shaan and the new Raven Guard stuff i've received from Forge World, my old Raven Guard feelings are stirring again. So, I decided to build a Raven Guard list, in the event I decide to do another RG force. Here it goes:

Raven Guard 2000 pt List


-Shadow Captain Shrike - 195

-Chaplain - 125

-Jump Pack


-Ironclad Dreanought - 170

-Drop Pod

-Ironclad Dreadnought - 170

-Drop Pod


-10x Tactical Squad - 235

-Melta Gun



-Extra Armour

-10x Tactical Squad - 235

-Melta Gun



-Extra Armour

-5x Scout Squad - 100

-4x Snipers

-Missile Launcher

-Camo Cloaks

Fast Attack

-10x Assault Squad - 240

-2x Flamers

-10x Assault Squad - 250

-2x Plasma Pistol

-Melta Bombs

-5x Vanguard Veteran Squad - 280

Why the spare Lightning Claws on the Vets Cain? Also I am wondering at the presence of only a single Missile Launcher. (Keeping in mind I am a List making N00b of course)

The Missile launcher is there for minor AT support for the Tactical Squads & Ironclads. As for the Vanguard Veterans, the configuration is 3x Marines (Including the Sergeant) to have Lightning Claws, and 2x to have Storm Shields and Chainswords. The SS marines act as ablative wounds to Shrike's Wing (The V-Vet Squad + Shrike) and travel at the front of the pack while Shrike and the others trail behind.
