Default need help picking an army please answer

i want fast... fast everything: movement, initiative, vehicles... everything.

i really want something fast and maybe even with a good number of attacks.

i was thinking of stealers... just, idk, maybe its their pts there like 30pts for good ones.

i thought of dark eldar i like them... they just dont have the "termie" thing i like... you know big assault killing machines.

the guys i can buy are:
16 warriors
3 jetbikes
1 talos
1 ravager
1 drazar
1 leilith
all for $100

Considering that the closest thing DE have to Terminators are Incubi and Incubi can easily rip apart a squad of terminators, I'd suggest Dark Eldar. By "termie" do you mean bulky models that are good in their own right or a squad that hits hard like terminators?

DE can easily be rigged out to be either of your "shooty" or "assaulty" termies.

the stuff you can get for $100 (I'm assuming its US) is a good deal, saves you quite a chunk of change right there with that set thing, are you getting it from a friend or something?

there also one of the fastest armies out there, movement and initiative wise

P.S. you'll need the codex if you don't already have it. ;D

In marines you can go Raven Guard or Raven Wing (Dark Angels company). I am not 100% sure but I think there is some raptor heavy chaos list.

Orks are the fastest army in da game. If you ever fight a battle where the armies are 10 feet apart, they are the fastest army in the game. 31" move on their vehicles.

Dark Eldar are the fastest functional army. They move really fast, then disembark from their open topped skimmers and assault you to oblivion.

Oh, BTW: 9 Dark Lances per turn. That rocks.

Their armor is rice paper at worst, cardboard at best, but the Shadowfield is the best invulnerable save in the game. And it goes on the CC monster of your army: the DE Lord.

Quick, dish it out, and can't take a hit: Dark Eldar are the army that can win or guarentee a win in one turn.

If your looking for somthing fast, furious, tough and hard hitting you can't go past Raven Wing.

All bikes and land speeders is pretty fun to use and hard to beat.

Do Ravenwing bikers get two attacks base? Otherwise all you have to do is not die to the charge and it is unlikely the bikers will last two turns in close combat. Bikers just aren't that good for ordinary troop killing in a world where everyone makes armies to kill MEQ's, plasma and forceweapons will just eat through your expensive bikes. And I am saying that as someone who took two max squads of marine bikers (one with furious charge) to a tournmanet. Bikes rule as vehicle killers but one attack base and the expense (and subsequent squad size) makes them suck at assault.

That is what khorne is for child!(says to self as if exlaining to an ignorant child younger than self) But I think dark elder are really fast or you use an army of deep strikers or infiltrating.
