Default Land Speeder army

I have been collecting Tau for a long time now and want to go for a Marine army next. What do you think of an army consisting of 9 landspeeders and all the other stuff?

well, it pretty much depends on what hat other stuff is.
9 speeders may sound cool and awesome, but anything with S4 or igher is a threat to it.

but its a real cool idea worth trying!

Personally I wouldn't try it, I've seen way too many land speeders go down in the first turn before they even get to do anything. I've taken at least 4 out in my virst turn with glancing hits from my venom cannons. It's really not worth it IMO.

It would be cool. Then again its a bit too much.

Have you considered the Dark Angels Ravenwing? An army made up of Marine Fast Attack choices sounds like your kind of thing.

The army itself would be expensive and weak, while being able to dish it out. Like Eldar. Go for Eldar.

i agree its a bit too much landspeeders can be good for shock attacks but their armour makes them even vulnerable to bolters so you could quite easily end up losing a large chunk of points by turn 2 or 3

If you're looking to play an army full of 10/10/10 vehicles with a heavy weapon, consider Dark Eldar. ;-)

keep em in reserve and deep strike them in.... then you can arrive and shoot on the same turn so they at least get 1 shot off before becoming scrap metal
