Default fast attack choices

I just thought I'd like to see which fast attack choice people thought was best. So vote and explain your answers!

It helps to use capitols and proper punctuation. Corrected for you but please do so in the future on your own. -Spiritbw

Assault marines. Why? Because you can get a bunch of them and jumppacks look cool(they can also DS in the back of vehicles and melta bomb them 8))

Well I would hesitate to ever use "best" when describing something because it's very subjective and depends on what you want it to do.

However as A tau player when I see assault marines they're a priority #1 target. They're fast, they can fly over my troops and they'll hurt in combat. Bikes are also high on the target priority list due to their ungodly speed and great firepower.

Landspeeders (ESPECIALLY Tornadoes) are a very real and definite threat however they're much easier to deal with due to their fragility, where as 10 assault marines or six bikes is actually going to take some effort to completley wipe out.

I have to agree. As a result the poll title is now edited to your favorite fast attack choice.

You know you can't move or assault on the turn you deep strike right?

Well I love Assault Squads for their Melta-Bombs too...and you're right; they do look damn cool! I don't like chainswords or bolt pistols though, but their effectiveness makes up for it.

Assault squads are nice. But to any Tau player, that's the first thing dead...
