Welcome to Librarium Online!
I want to (and certainly will) put jetbike models on my 1500 list. I have 5 shining spears and an autarch on jetbike right now.
However i am not really sure which one to use. 4 Warlocks and a Farseer or 5 spears with exarch and an autarch.
I know that they are different units, one is a an anvil the others a hammer and everything depends on the list.
I just would like to know what the community would use if they were going to either one of those for themselves?!
I'd go for the spears, just because nobody is using them at the moment and it's always nice to field one of our underdogs.
- Just love that maki! -
I've voted spears, I use them in my list as a counter charge unit and find them very effective at what they do

I agree with above. Most people have no idea what Spears do and Autarchs are vastly under-rated. Seer Councils also balloon in points and if that Fortune doesn't go off, oops.
str 6 power weapons on the charge coupled with high Initiative, high weapon skill and an autarch similarly equipped in addition to the appeal listed above is reason enough.
i`ll go for an autarch in a seer council anyway

I'm actually glad to see so many spears supporters.
I have been inclined to use spears however, everybody seems to not like them so it made me doubt myself
They aren't the best unit in the army, but used well are effective. They're just a bit harder to use than "DA's blow more dice than I own at you" but you'd be surprised how big an advantage people not knowing what something does and assuming it's awful can be.
I haven't used the coucil much but have used the spears. If you think you can use them go for the spears. At least try them out. they might see a better role for us against Niddy monsters of mega death now. The council I feel are a better sink of points. But I refuse to use one on the grounds of them being very expensive jetbikes without fortune. Whereas the spears should ideally be hiding before a counter strike. unless you're playing against guard. Those bastards.
