    LandSpeeders Effectiveness

    Well I only play my brother at the moment, And all he plays are nids. So I figure its time to purchase a lanspeeder tornado to take out his swarms of bugs. My question is. Equipped with the assault cannon and heavy bolter are they effective solo? Or should I not play with them till I have a squad of 3?

    They're more effective in squads of 1 especially if he has lots of 4+ attacks because, well, read the speeder tactica but I say GO FOR IT. Tornados are great against nids. In my anti-nid marine army i'm gonna have lots of them.

    Landspeeder Tornado with Assault Cannon:

    7 AP4 shots per turn.
    He can't shoot for toffee.
    If you keep it moving >6 a turn, assaulting it is out.

    .........one is effective, but once you've discovered the delight of them, you'll want to take nine.

    Yeah. I LOVE them I don't think that any other Fast Atack choices are very good against nids.

    and don't forget, the 7 ap4 shots are great for swarms, but the assault cannon is also great for TMC!

    It's good against everything heh.. As soon as the SM codex hit the shelf the assault cannon turned from gimp to the best weapon in the game

    Land Speeders are one of the best things that you can possibly take against those nasty little nids.They are great.They will rip through everything with ease,especially the little bugs like stealers,gaunts etc and the best thing is that they cant be touched back,well unless they have venom cannons in which case you take out first and then you start moving your speeders out in the open where they cant be harmed.I would definately take more than 1.But if your going to be taking 3 or less than yeah you might aswell make them go solo so if in some situation you wish they can split their fire on different targets.GO THE SPEEDER.And may your AC shots rend,because hell mine hardly ever do!
    Cheers,

    You are really rigth. I kill 2 fexes last battle vs nids with AC from LST and Termis. If you are lucky with 6 they are really realy devasting

    In the other hand LST are great agasint many armies. vs eldar thery are really good, hordes armies fear thei amount of fire, etc. LST gives you mobility and you can use it for taking terrains or objetives.

    2 LST have been my last marine models and they done well in the 2 batytles they fight. In one kills a lot of nids, and the other battle take 2 objetives in turn 6 :lol:
