Hey mates. With the release of the new White Scars and so far loving everything about them, is this an opportunity for the Land Speeder to make a comeback with the new Codex? And if that's the case, which loadout do you like the best going forward 🤔?

If only Land Speeders had the keyword BIKE...

 

I don't really see too much making Land Speeders "great".  Are they usable, sure.

Land Speeders have always been good. You just have to build a list around them and most people don't want to do that. They like net-listing. But I can totally see an outrider detachment with three squads of bikers and three squads of land speeders doing some good work for the Lords of the Hunt.

Vehicles having access to doctrines and traits makes them a lot more viable, a fully armed typhoon being able to move and fire without penalty can only be a good thing

Unfortunately they get a penalty for moving and shooting unless you spend a cp.

Relic Javelins and regular, fast moving -> fire -> charge -> fallback -> fire and charge -> lots of damage
