I'm putting together a new Chaos army and I wanted to get a poll on what is the best fast attack options. Not who has the most fast attack options. So what do you think?
Chaos bike squads. CSM squads are good, and compared to them bikes have much higher mobility, survivability, increased firepower, and the ability to fire rapid fire before charging.
Compared to Raptors they have the advantage of turboboost but can't ignore terrain, and still have the other three advantages mentioned above.
Ze titles yez...
When in doubt,
Smite.<SilverMane> I would trust BID with my life
<SilverMane> HEIL BID!
<Adrian-> BiD is Omnipotent; All Knowing, All Powerful!
<Scary_Troopers> I see you as an optimist, GT. : D
But what of the midgets!?

I do not have the 4th edition rulebook yet, but I hope my simple 3rd edition knowledge will be good enough for you.
Personally, I like to use Raptors, because Hit and Run is very powerful and allows you to move around very quickly. With a few special weapons, 3 attacks on the charge, and a souped up Champion they are insanely powerful.
Bikes are also very good, but I don't use them as much simply because they cost 5 points more, and the models just aren't nearly as cool !

With the 4th edition rules, those extra points you pay for Bikes are so incredibly worth it.
I used to be a big fan of Raptors, but now I have definitely shifted very heavily towards Bikes, their increased toughness, the possibility of an Invulnerable save if you Turbo-Boost, same amount of attacks and greater firepower are definitely more useful.
I prefer raptors myself but with the new 4th edition rules coming out soon I'm strongly considering a biker squad, they are more expensive than raptors but their special abilities are not to sneeze at and their better than their loyalist counterpart.
It seems as though everyone is switching from raptors to bikes now. Thanks for all the replies.
Heh, those 4th edition rules were masterful marketing. "Uh, oh, bike sales are down, better expand that Dark Eldar bike rule to all the armies, that should push sales up".
I'd have to say bikes.
Dark Eldar: The Kabal Of the Black Heart: Bloody Claw division.
Black Legion: Division 666
Vampire Counts Von Castein Bloodline: w/l/t
If you think that's bad, think about this:Heh, those 4th edition rules were masterful marketing. "Uh, oh, bike sales are down, better expand that Dark Eldar bike rule to all the armies, that should push sales up".
"Uh oh, we don't sell any Dark Eldar, let's make them all naked and female and give them the best rules in the game, that should push sales up"
Ave Dominus Nox!
Dude, why not use both? thats what I'm doing;
And while yer at it, make a few SQUADS of bikes, for getting to table quarters quick, and a few squads of raptors to hassle the opponent with <hit and run rocks>
mind you, no ones mentioned demons yet <i dont think, i havent read evrything here>
Screamers have an even better version of hit and run, check it out.
Flesh Hounds are fun, or maybe mounted daemonettes? i dont like furies so...
yeah, have fun and all
