Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys, maybe you can answer this little question that has arisen after my last game against my brother in law.
Do Vypers technically class as Jetbikes?
In the codex it lists them as a fast skimmer, whereas Guardians on Jetbikes under the army list section are listed as "Unit Type: Jetbikes."
I can't find anywhere in the Codex that refers to them as such, at which point my bro in law argued that they don't get the 6" move in the assault phase as they aren't Jetbikes.
The only thing I have to support my argument is on the box it says "Eldar Vyper Jetbike"
I forgot that was on the box. Anyway they're just vehicles.
Jetbikes refers to guardian jetbikes, shining spears and anyone buying one as equiptment.
a Vyper has an armour value and is a fast skimmer - not a jetbike.
The logical reason fr this I guess is that you don't ride it like a bike!

Its true Im afraid, they are not a jet bike, Vypers would be far more useful if they could get that extra 6" move.
Actually they can get additional 12" move.
My beloved Eldar force, I'll judge your roster core. I appreciate your concern, You're gonna think and learn. Rep me... rep me, my friend.
Good times. Good times.
