Welcome to Librarium Online!
Does anyone else think that Vyper jetbikes should function in a manner similar to the space marine attack bikes? You know, two wounds, and able to be purchased as an upgrade to a bike squadron, or on their own?
Anyhow...I was toying around with the idea for a new eldar vehicle built around the vyper chassis. I was wondering if I could get your opinion on it. Please note the name is very much subject to change.
Combining lightning speed and withering firepower, the Eldar Wasp is known for delivering pinpoint firepower to the Mon-Keigh at a moment's notice.
Type: Skimmer, Fast
Armor: F 11; S 11; R 10
Weapons: Twin-Linked shuriken catapults, Twin linked Shuriken cannons.
I am thinking of allowing the vehicle to upgrade the primary weapons for the same points cost as a wave serpent. But with twin shuriken cannons, it will let me use them as 'normal' vypers with two shuriken cannons (the weapons are going to be mounted on fuselage pylons underneath the wings)
* "I'm Significant!" -screamed the dust speck
* "Call me old fashioned, but an evil ascension to power just isn't the same without someone chanting faux Latin in the background."
For two of these, I could get three kitted vypers. I'd infinitely prefer that. Maybe twin linked scatter lasers?
Fluffwise: I don't see what niche this vehicle is meant to fill, as it's too heavy to be a true fast attack unit and too light to be even a light tank.
