Welcome to Librarium Online!
I was wondering to Dark Eldar Jetbikes get the six inch move in the assault phase like their eldar bretheren? In the rulebook it says ELDAR can do this, but, of course it's ambiguous as to if DARK Eldar can do this move also. :rolleyes:
Actually the codex states that reaver jetbikes are like eldar jetbikes. And the races that use jetbikes are eldars and dark eldars only. (NO NO A necron destroyer is not a jetbike). It isn't clear in the codex but..
It would be nice that now that everybody can turboboost give this advantage to our bikes too...
If you look near the back of the rulebook there is the page that classifies all the units as Infantry, Vehicle, Monstrous Creature, etc. If I remember correctly, Reavers are classified as Jetbikes, not Eldar Jetbikes. This is a straight up rule, whereas the entry in the DE Codex is sort of half-rule/half-fluff, so I'd go with the rulebook. (Especially since if they did have the 6" move, they'd be thoroughly underpriced) (And yes, I AM a DE player and I still think they'd be underpriced)
(Having said that, I think I'm one of the few people that believes Reavers are fairly priced as they are now)
Think of it this way:
They (Eldar) always get a 6" move in the assault phase even if it doesn't bring them into hand to hand (like Tau jump-shoot-jump)
We get +1 Strength and Combat Drugs. w00~! Combat Drugs~!
yeah our jetbikes are definitly better (especially since we get two blasters for the price of a shurikan cannon) not to mention a succubus.
