are jetbikes worth their cost now that they get turboboosting?
why would one want to take jetbikes in their army?

wow are jetbikes that useless that no one has anything to say about em? :o
Yes. They are next to useless because they have had no change from 3rd edition. Bcak then the move in the assult phase was half decent because no other bike could move that fast. That is the reason they cost so much, because they used to be fast. Their shrukin cats suck because now the enemy can give heaps of return fire with the new rapidfire rules. The cannons are ok, but generally the squad is too costly.
turbo boost is good though. I was thinking a squad of 10 bikes could tie up like 3 squads that were arrayed in a basic firing line formation since they're so bulky. turboboost 24" across the board then charge in and totally close a whole section of the enemy's firing lines - that would be good.
But they cannot charge the same round they turbo boost. And their leadership is so low, and they will nearly always be outnumbered, so they will probably run away.Originally Posted by artificer knoll
I use the bikes assault fase move like a crystal target matrix. zoom them forward. Fire weapons (shrunken cannon) and then move 6" behind some terrain. They don't really kill much, but some opponents will try to hunt them down since they are annoying.
Thats why you take 3 of em so you can have a shuriken cannon. They are fast and can do some damage but most be a thorn in the side of your opponent
They wont even be a thorn in your opponents side. Take 3 vypers with cannons if you wanna do that as they're basically the same price and you dont have to take the other useless models
Guardian Jetbike squadrons have no redeeming quality
There is not a single thing they do well that another unit cannot do for half the cost, and probably more firepower
SOme of the eldar units have limited uses, like say.. wraithguard. Yet overall are still horrible
In this case Jetbikes have no use. The only possible thing they could assault are Tau and even then the Tau would *barely* be outmatched
I'm assuming that you mean crisis suits, and in that case, I think that the tau would handle them. Higher strength and 2 wounds would do it.Originally Posted by Kirasu
So there is no possible thing they could do that something else couldn't for cheaper. If you like peak a boo attacks, try warp spiders.
