More Mechdar Messing - Jetbike Units Sizes?

Nick speaking,

After a few games with another re-vamped Mechdar list that enabled me to get my Wraithknight in, I think I am ready to make a few decisions regarding my Jetbike units. I have noticed that my six strong Jetbike units always go down in one turn of shooting or assault if they get targeted, regardless of how well I am using them! So what is the ideal unit size?


The conclusion at the moment is for me to have four units of three rather than two units of six, I only had four troop slots previously, so I have the space for them. It would also mean that I could drop the two Warlocks I had with the larger bike squades. The Warlocks weren't that great anyway, and sort of went against the idea of reserving them, as I couldn't get the Psychic Powers up from reserve, and then when I did get the chance, failed the Leadership eight roll anyway! With the Warlocks dropped and a few tweaks here and there, I am able to get a second unit of Warp Spiders into the list and fill out my Troops slots at the same time...

  1. I like the list quite a lot actually, but the only thing that im curious about is the warp spider exarch? How come you have him? Is it just points left over?

  2. Thanks mate, and that's a good point. There are two reasons really, one, yes because I had the points left over, but two, because I have a really cool exarch jumping off a dead Orks head that I really like using, so I play him if I can :)

  3. Well i can't fault that then. If it was just points i would have suggested a fire dragon exarch instead but who can argue with a cool model?
