(sighs) This has been done before. The guard don't need jeeps, you want a transport, go with the Chimera. Terrain a problem? That's what airliftings are for. In World War II, jeeps worked perfectly because most engagements were usually small scale skirimishes, with a few exceptions. In 40k, the guard prefers to fight wars usually with peer brawn.

It isn't a transport. It is a light vehicle. Also is this fast attack, does it come in squadrons?

sighs you don't give up do you? Space marines have the Landspeeder, so why can't we have an equivelent?

i did this before Moral Terror, (and this should be in the House Rules Section!) i will link it for you, neat idea but way too smaller points cost.

Link to my idea: http://forums.tauonline.org/index.php?topic=11601.0

It's surpost to be the gaurds answer to the spacemarine attack bike. at 40 pts it sounds cheap but its still only Bs 3. In squads of 1-3 sounds about right fast attack.
