    1700 points, bikes or terminators

    ok guys, i've been thinking a while now of starting an army consisting of ether bikes or a terminator army. the chapter i want to make is called " death spectres ". they've black armour, white helmets and are albinos. the bike army is made with the vanilla space marine codex and the terminator army with the dark angels codex.

    this is the biker list:

    HQ
    captain, bike, relic blade

    TROOPS
    bike squad, extra biker, 2 melta guns, attack bike, multimelta

    bike squad, extra biker, 2 melta guns, attack bike, multimelta

    bike squad, extra biker, 2 flamers, attack bike

    bike squad, extra biker, 2 flamers, attack bike

    bike squad, extra biker, 2 flamers, attack bike

    FAST ATTACK
    3 landspeeders, 3 X 2 heavy flamers

    2 landspeeders, 2 X 1 multi melta

    2 landspeeders, 2 X 1 multi melta

    HEAVY SUPPORT
    vindicator, siege shield

    vindicator, siege shield

    this army is exactly 1700 points
    and now for the terminator army:

    HQ
    belial, TH/SS

    interrogator-chaplain, terminator armour

    TROOPS
    1st deathwing squad, 5 X TH/SS, apothecary, belial here

    2nd deathwing squad, 5 X TH/SS

    3th deathwing squad, assault cannon

    4th deathwing squad, 4 X pair of lightning claws, 1 X TH/SS, I-chaplain here

    FAST ATTACK
    ravenwing squadron, 2 melta guns, powerfist, attack bike, multimelta

    HEAVY SUPPORT
    landraider crusader, extra armour, 4th deathwing suad here

    i'll explain this list quickly, only the landraider and the ravenwing are put on the table. the bikes will turbo boos forward with the scout move, and in turn one, belial and the TH/SS terminators deepstrike with the deathwing deepstrike special rule. the landraider and will go forward, and the 3th squad will deepstrike later in the game and take out an objective or kill where needed.

    btw, we use house rules in the place where i game, and the storm shields give and 3+ invulnerable save instead of 4+ like in the dark angels codex.

    feel free to comment on any thing, vote or tell why you voted

    thanks

    I'd go with the bike army hands down. I'm running one myself and so far they have been awesome! Your whole army is toughness 5 (except the landspeeders of course), and they have a lot of speed that can take you to the fight earlier depending on your opponent. Also, they probably have the ability to make one of the nastiness (or cheesed as my opponents call it) command squads in the game. Here's the link to my army list to show as an example.

    Good luck to you mate!

    so, it's been three days and seriously only one person voted and replied. c'mon people, it only takes a minute to vote.

    thanks templar for voting, myself i'm leaning to the bikes list, but i just can't deside. it's too cool to have a terminator army.

    thanks

    Don't expect people to spend their time helping you, just hope they will.

    I voted bike list too, death wing just isn't competitive and bike armies are more fun to play with.

    Gotta say this though if your going the bike option why not go ravenwing and get yourself a nifty av14 landspeeder or jetbike

    The only real problem Da bikers have is thier unit size but your taking that size anyway so why not be gre err black

    seanburton, the reason i didn't take the ravenwing is because they are a lot more expencive. the same list, with 3 bikers and 1 attack bike in every unit, would cost 170 points more than this list. the size of the biker units would be even less than it is now. that's why i chose the vanilla bikes over the ravenwing.

    thanks

    Its close I put bikes only because they are the best in gaming terms, I have seem that army but with Khan at them helm. It is funyy to see your opositions face when a stupid amount of bikes come on there flank and destroy them.

    Terminators all the way.
    What would you rather face; loads of bikes with a 3+ save and no combat prowess whatsoever or
    ;Teleporting 2+ saving 3+ invulnerableing combat monsters- who can also lay down some firepower. terminators can take all comers, be it land raiders or mobs of 30 orks
