Welcome to Librarium Online!
i have a question
Why is a vyper good? some people use them but why
it doesnt seem good to me can someone help me outa here
Vypers are awesome if used right. One hit from the right heavy weapon could kill em
but you can always add Holo-field and other vehicle upgrades. They are fast skimmers
and can carry missile launchers, bright lances, star cannons, shuriken cannons,
twin-linked shuriken catapults. They're so fast zooming over your head while shooting at
you that you can't target them very well.
Using them properly is key. If fitted with Crystal Targeting Matrixes, they can safely harrass the enemy all game long without consequence. Pop out of cover, shoot, pop back behind it; the enemy can't shoot you even though you can shoot it. Also since its a fast skimmer, it is glancing only when you do this; making it hard to kill even if you can see it.
they are pretty cheap, they count as fast vehicles, you can give them starcannons etc.
if you give them crystal targeting matrix they can zoom out of cover, shoot, then jump back into cover (like those annoying tau) you can give them the legendary eldar vehicle upgrades allowing you to ignore a lot of damage.
Seeing how they are a fast skimmer, they can move 12" and fire both, their heavy weapon and their catapults. A squad of 3 with missile launchers, or Bright Lances can really do some damage to armored tanks, or infantry. Plusthe WIDe varitey of weaponsw can be specialzed for any enemy.
<insert witty remark here>
I just take a starcannon on my two, no upgrades . They just scoot around harassing the enemy, and if my opponent wants to shoot a whole squad of marines at it with a reduced balistic skill it's their loss (they rarely do anything). even better if they decide to hit it with a heavy weapon it stops my wraithlord or falcon from biting the dust.
Their range makes them ideal for pasting armoured troops and light vehicles with a starcannon. Their reduced weapon skill makes them more unpredicitable with one shot weapons like BL and Missle launchers.
(Y) thnx for replying now i understand th vyper better
Well i like vypers, I think they are awesome.
#1 you can buy them in squads up to 3 (that means if your a crazy about them you could get 9 of them)
#2 They can have every decent weapon (missile launcher, Bright lance, starcannon, shuricannon)
#3 They can use the crystaline targetting matrix making them somewhat like the Tau
#4 They can(! be innexpensive
#5 they look cool
#6 they can be a good distraction
My projected 3,000 point force includes a squad of three with Starcannon (and two Shuricannon upgrades) and a squad of 2 with Bright Lances.
If the enemy chooses to make them primary targets, then they'll probably drop without too much difficulty. Meanwhile, my Wave Serpents, Wraithlord and Falcon are receiving less fire.
If the enemy chooses not to make them priority targets, then I have fast moving, relatively cheap, jetbikes of vehicle and heavy infantry death sowing destruction where they will. With a jetbike farseer nearby somewhere to guide them.
