Darrell sits down to give us some of his insights about one of the most popular fast attack choices for the Space Marines… the Land Speeder…
It would be very scary in a vulkan army, especially if you knew that two marines called Stanley and Oliver were hunting you down. Two seperate twin linked weapons… ouch. Pity they are sooo fragile
This is a much better kit than the older one with its metal flamer or assault cannon at the front, puling down on the pointless ball joint thing they came with, and you can build a squadron of them in the time it took to get the flash off the 2nd edition all metal one.
Landspeeders are great I have 2 squadrons of 3. I do like to use the typhoon missile launchers They may not be able to crack landraiders but most anything else is going to be hurting… plus gives you the range to sit back and pick off threating stuff. Which may lead to them lasting longer than a couple of turns. The new kit is much better than the old one.. which you still can get in the ravenwing box set. The top bit is kid of warped for some reason. It makes it difficult to glue the front to be flush, leaving a gap if you’re not careful. Also my advice, glue the bumper on after you painted both it and the landspeeder. Makes both jobs easier. And wait out of LoS for your targets to come to you. Pass on choice targets and go for easier ones if it keeps them alive. Don’t bail forward to take out 1 target hoping you get lucky.
I’ve never used Land Speeders myself, preferring Attack Bikes as they are less fragile and a lot easier to use. I’ve always liked the Landspeeder models mind, so would be tempted to get them at some stage.
But what about land speeders strorm are they any good ?
They have the Scout special rule, and can transport up to 5 Scouts and Scouts only. Thats a basic difference.
hello oliver and stanley
Dark Angels can get a Land Speeder with Typhoon Missile Launchers and a Multi-Melta for 70 points (much cheaper than Vanilla Marines). Dark Angels can also take up to 5 Land Speeders in a unit! Add a Bike squad with free 12″ Scout move and a free Teleport Homer – drop your Terminators anywhere you need them, spot-on!
I have three and play them. My favorite combos are : Double meltas work well as “suicide sleds”. Double flamers for mobile anti-troop. Typhoon and bolter for back line fire support.
