Default A Crazy Army I Heard About...

So, apparently there's a way to create an army ENTIRELY out of Bikes and Land Speeders with vanilla marines. HQ on a bike, "Be as Swift as the Wind" for Troops, and Land Speeders/Attack Bikes for Fast Attack.

This entire army, although probably not as good as Saim-Hann Eldar, would be pretty ridiculous on the battlefield. I mean, people expect Eldar to move fast, but vanilla Marines? Holy cow.

Has anyone considered this army? Even looked at it? Heck, is it even legal? (I already know Dark Angels can most likely do this better, but for vanilla Marines, I have some doubts.)

It's legal.

And it's been done before: they're called white scars.

Pretty sure he pointed out that the Dark Angles are capable of it already.

In your own words: What an uber-noobish answer.

Kids these days...

Forever disappointed by the current generation,

so what your saying is that oven cleaner can remove paint from plastic models? and after that, you take a toothbrush to your plastic model, and the paint just comes off?

That was just a bit un-fair and harsh.
