Is it worth it? on its own? a squad of 3? or should i just stick with the tornado variant?
Space Marines are the gateway drug
If everyone makes fun of West Virginia, who does West Virginia make fun of?
To be honest, just cause it twin links a blast weapon with str 5, dosen't seem worth it to me. Under the blast template you'd be pushing it to get four models under it. Then on average you'll wound 3. You can do better with just taking on with heavy bolters or an assualt cannon.
If at first you dont succeed, skydiving is not for you.
Stick with the Tornado. Sure the Typhoon is cheaper but the missle laucher is almost a heavy bolter. (I say almost because it has -1 AP and can cover about 3-4 bases if your lucky.) The Tornado gets an assault cannon for ten more points is S6 AP4, four shots, and rends. More bang for your buck.
Indeed. When it comes to points vs. efficiency, the tornado is just way better. It kills infantry by the dozens, and can even destroy tanks with a lucky shot...

Go with the assault cannons all the way.
Assault cannon + HB mows down swarms with ease. THe AC can take out anything but a monolith with luck.
If u need better tank cracking, get multimeltas, with the speed you have to work with getting into half range is a jiffy. Leave the heavy flamer at home though, too hard to use.
The launcher is a bit useless, its an okay weapon with the twin linkage and all, but it just gets totally outshined by the assault cannon.
I use a squadron of 3 HB AC speeders, they rock! 21 shots, can u say dead wraithlord?! :shifty:
I agree with everyone else, but the typhoon IS a cool model. My daughter got me one for xmas, even though i wanted the tornado. Thats three landspeeders in my army now, and none have the assault cannon. Time to go shopping.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
Never used a typhoon. My Tornado sure does great against all the armies I regularly play. AC strong enough to easily take down Necrons, Enough shots to take care of 'Nids and Tau fire warriors. Works great.
I just bought a regular landspeeder with multi-melta with the purpose of taking down the oh-so-invulnerable hammerheads...haven't gotten a chance to test it though...
