Default Eye to Eye Qu.

in the traits section under the Eye to Eye disadvantage it states that you can take 0-1 from the list of Bikers, Attack bikers and landspeeders. but what about scout bikers, they haven&#39;t included anything about them, discuss...

Seems to me it&#39;s just one of those things; by the spirit it of the rules it should extend to scout bikes too, but by this new Rules As Written movement, it&#39;d be allowed.

Judging by the associated fluff, it&#39;s obvious that such a chapter wouldn&#39;t be able to field many scout bike squadrons either. It just depends how anal you are I guess. You can guarentee there are some rules lawyers out there that take advantage of this drawback by taking scout bikers and thus more or less negating it.

I would assume that &#39;Bikers&#39; would translate not only to regular bikes, but scout bikes as well.

when I repeated the rule I did not quote it word for word, it states exactly "May only take 0-1 selection in total from the following list: Land Speeder Squadron, Attack Bike Squadron, Bike Squadron" these are the exact words and the three listed in it are the exact names for the three units aforementioned, scout bikers are left right out

Well, then you can take more than 1 of any bike unit that isn&#39;t a Bike Squadron, since it&#39;s clear it&#39;s refering to the actual squadron, as opposed to &#39;bikers&#39; refering to marines on a bike.

Remember that Tornados and Typhoons are no longer a seperate unit entry so you can&#39;t weasal out of the restriction by upgrading the speeders

I think you may have misunderstood, mate...he was referring to scout bike squadrons slipping through the net, not independent characters with bikes.

Actually, you misunderstand me. I&#39;m saying that if it&#39;s not a Bike squadron (or landspeeder or Attack Bike Squadron) that it doesn&#39;t have the limit on it, so Scouts "slip through the net". I suppose I didn&#39;t word it very well; I just woke up.

Sorry, I still don&#39;t understand. Scout bikers are squadrons too. ???
