Model count seems a bit low, and no command squad of doom?

I believe this is intended as an example of one way in which the LS Tempest can be fielded, not as a competitive list. It would only have a chance at competitiveness in the hands of a master. As a themed list it's fine.

Yeah, if you brought that army to a tourny, you'd be torn up real quick due to the lacking numbers

It would be fun to play in friendly games, though. I'm interested to know what Wargamer's plan for using this list would be.

My plan basically consists of air-striking everything the Bikes can't reach! ;D

If you turbo boost, bikes can basically go everywhere

Why need to go above it when you can just go thru it.

Because when your opponent cottons on that you've only got bikes, he'll start placing his objectives out of reach... The ability to at least contest elevated objectives is beneficial.
