Land Speeder Squad
Attack Bike Squad
Iv got ~1k army thats basically decked out to deal with troops and light transports and looking to expand to ~1.5k list. Within the 500 points i would like to include something that i can use to take care of heavier tanks and such (Preds and Russ mainly).
Choices are in the poll but would be good to hear what people think of the choices or suggest something different
IMO, attack bikes with MM are the way to go, cheaper than devs. , and can move faster to get around other units, terrain etc.
or on the other hand i think a 10 man dev squad with 4 ML, can help to.
BTW, what do have already...?
5man assault squad
6man sternguard w/drop pod
10man tactical squad w/rhino
7man scout snipers w/telion
5man devastators 2xHB 2xML
got afew things i can interchange like a dread and some termies but i like how current list plays for 1k
I voted other and say dreadnoughts there cheap and can be kitted out how you want to kill just about anything.
Then yeah, IMO the attack bikes would round off your army nicely....
I voted MM Attack bikes. For what you're getting they are a bargain. Barring that I'd get a Dreadnought equipped for ranged AT.
Meltas on anything. I like MM/HF Speeders these days, as they can zip up and hit something (blasting tanks or roasting infantry) or deep strike in if you need them to live for a turn.

For Land Speeders, you can take a combination. My suggestion would be a Typhoon with a M.Melta. Its an expensive Speeder (double the base points), but 3 decent shots into the side/rear armor with it, you can get multiple kills in a squadron, or really good chance to pop a single tank.
And, once done with tank hunting it can still move 12" and fire 2(frag) rockets into infantry with some great results.
Curious as to which is preferred between a Land Speeder with a multi-melta or an attack bike with one. It's only a 10 pts difference, so any reasoning in this selection?
Another followup, with 3 empty fast attack slots, would it be better to break up the squads (and thereby weakening defense against morale checks but allowing each one to fire at a separate target) or together (reducing kill points)?
Ill say Attack Bikes but its a tough one between them and Landspeeders. I wont suggest Terminators as you have to get close to tanks with them and thats not always a guarantee.
Landspeeders and Attack Bikes are a good choice as they are more mobile and you can redeploy a lot quicker and the range isnt so much of an issue. Landspeeders are more mobile though.
