Raptor (Raptor)



Named for a family of predatory birds from ancient Terra, Raptors are chaos space marines who specialising in fast assults using Jump Packs. Raptor squads rapidly cross difficult terrain and sieze strategic positions, possibly even behind enemey lines. Jump Packs use a combination of anti-gravity and jet thrusters to perform leaps hundreds of meters or several stories high. Over the millenia the warp has twisted Raptors to take on a predatory, bird-like aspect.


Renegade marines get a choice of two selections of waregear. The first option is the highly adaptable Chainsword and Bolt Pistol, including a number of fragmentation grenades. The second subsitiutes the weight of a chainsword and grenades for a potent Meltagun to make short work of armoured targets.


With a jump pack a raptor cna cover a lot of ground very quickly, reaching objectives far faster than any other class. Jump packs also open up alternative routes over walls and low buildings that other classes cannot reach.

40K vs Exterminatus

Raptors have the option to use meltaguns as they are one of the few classes who would be able to make effective use of such a short-ranged weapon.
