    Fast Attack?

    What is your favorite Fast Attack choice and why? Im having trouble deciding if to use them, as they are so expensive, and a tactical analysis from peoples favorite types of fast attack would be helpful. All posts appreciated.

    My favourite is assualt marines. One, everyone has told me to get them and two, I just generally like them over bikes.

    land speeder tornados all the way!

    rediculus amount of fire power. strong enough to kill everything!

    fast enough to do anything! deepstrike!

    open topped but doesn't count as opentopped.

    Fast Skimmer!

    comon!
    I thought you said they wouldn't charge us!
    What I said was: I didn't think they would charge us and win. And I still believe that.
    Then if they can't win, what are they doing charging us?
    It's possible, I suppose, their commander disagrees with my assessment...

    Space Marine Fast attack is really good. Assault marines are pretty budget assault troops, and are pretty versatile. LS offer both anti-infantry and anti-tank with assault cannons.
    I think Assault Marines are a must in armies over 1000pts and LST in almost any list.
    Take life seriously, its lethal.

    LSTs, I love them so much. The enemy can only glance them most of the time, and the crank out tons of fire power. Though I generally take an assault squad and LSTs because they're both really useful.
    I can read now!

    Assault Marines all the way. See, I play Flesh Tearers so...:tongue: Any help in CC is worth its weight in gold to me. I do see how good LST are, but I'm yet to add any to my army.

    I think I have to go with the heavy bolter + assault cannon LST on this one. Though I'd like to say scout bikes...

    I used to use Assault marines a lot, but I've grown bored with them, and I'm trading them for Land Speeders. Now, I'm running a 10 LST ravenwing LST list.

    Maybe I am just perverse (because no one else seems to like it... I am perverse anyway), but my favourite FA choice is a bike squad. While assault marines are a "better" choice, I just prefer bikes. No idea why, unless it is because my first decent conversions was a mounted command squad.
