landspeeders: any use?

Post  Roland on Mon May 26, 2014 9:36 pm

What is the best lookout now, or are they all junk? Best I can come up with is ds in with double mm or double hf. Try to get one round of boom, anything after is bonus.

Well. they are cheap, they are fast, and they Score. They don't contest, but they score.

In the maelstrom of war missions mobility can win games, and with the plethora of ways to get VP's. First blood isn't as dumb.

I'd give speeders another look.

AV10 all around, with 2 hp. if you shoot, you cant jink, which means relying on cover. In any case, if infantry get within 12" of so, it will die, if not to massed bolter fire, then to the inevitable assault. Maybe I'll just play them on tables with exclusively GW terrain kits (since all of them grant "area" terrain, not requiring 25% cover).

I'll try them a bit, but I don't expect much from them.
