Hey guys, I'm building my mechdar force through Bartertown and I recently aquired a box of Shining Spears for free. The guy made me wait 3 weeks while he gathered my junk and really doesn't want a bad review.
My issue is I don't know if I need SS's or if I should make them Jetbikes (I already have 3 normal Jetbikes and a Farseer on bike). I run 2 DA's in Serpents, Dragons in Serpent, 3 Prisms (or Prisms and Walkers), 2 Farseers with DA's, and Scorpions. At 2000 I'm going to add a Serpent with 5 Wraithguard and 'lock.
My options are:
-Make them Jetbikes for 6 Jetbikes
-Make them Shining Spears and convert the jetbikes to Shining Spears for up to 6 (I think unit max is 5?)
-Convert an Autarch on bike and the rest to Shining Spears
I don't want to make a Jetcouncil because of the amount of work and my army is sort of based on the Farseers not being in councils (might post fluff at some point in Projects)
What would you guys do??
I think I'd go with the Guardian Jetbikes, to give you another objective holding unit or two. They are not a fantastic unit, but mesh well with your mech list and will give you an extra change at objectives should someone get a lucky hit on one of your DA-serpents.
Use them as shining spears, they are really cool, for fun high point games. and when/if we get redone they may become good, in which case you got them on stand by, otherwise you can sell them to me! ;-)
