Seriously, Forge World, WTF?

First, look at this:

That's Forge World's lovely Javelin Attack Speeder. Now, look at this and explain to me if there any point whatsoever to taking a Land Speeder Typhoon. Seriously, only the Dark Angels can match it for pts cost, and even then the Javelin has the armour of a Rhino, AND it's Cyclone missile launcher is twin-linked.

To reiterate:
1. It's 15 pts cheaper than a Land Speeder Typhoon (except for cheapass Dark Angels).
2. It has more armour.
3. Its main weapon is twin-linked.

This is quite possibly the best use of 75 pts possible for a Space Marine player, and guess what? It's available at Forge World for the paltry sum of GBP55. Yes, that's right, 50 pence shy of THREE TIMES the price of a Land Speeder. You know what, Forge Word can go f**k themselves...



  1. Well it can't go squadron like the lay man ones.

    And it is a "nigh-irreplaceable relic of a bygone age of technological mastery" meaning everybody should have 3, would have been 9 if it was not for the non squadron thingy.

    Also for "Space Marines whose are fortunate..." simply replace the word "fortunate" with "rich enough" and it is good to go.

  2. Can purchase 2 hunter killer for 5 pts each..
    Can outflank..
    Lascannon upgrade
    This is a really good land speeder.
