For fast attack, it may be better if you had one or two larger groups of scout bikes, with attack bikes filling out the remaining brigade requirements. With no special weapons in your bike squads, may as well use cheaper scout bikes. Larger group or groups can better benefit from strats/boosts. Attack bikes can be a cheap filler or muti-Melta threat.

I think scout troops can go well for white scars... if they can be kept alive till round 3. Also surprised you’re not making use of Master of Snares. Hiding in combat, even against many fly units, is part of making scars more durable.

I believe scout bikes are the same price as regular bikes in the new codex (thats what Battlescribe tells me). I get that cluster mines is an awesome strat, and I bike go that way some day, but I don't actually own any scout bikes atm

But I can swap out one of the bike units for an attack bike and boost the other two squads to 4-man units. That might give better survivability to them and give me a chance at the hellfire strat instead.

Well, I think that a brigade is less effective than some other detachments.
After all, Scouts are just slot fillers but nothing to really count on.

If standard bikes is what you have, then two units of 4 is better than three units of 3.

If CP is wanted, then the brigade is fine provided there is a desire for elites, fast and heavy. Pure White Scars will likely always want elite and fast. So heavies become the decider. But yeah, if low CP is OK, then yes there are stronger units.

Of all supplements released so far, I feel the Scars strats and super doctrine can better make scouts hit above their weight. So for CP in pure Scars, I feel scouts are reasonable. It is yet to be seen if a pure Scars army is reasonably competitive. RG certainly have better infantry deployment.

Out of curiosity, what is the general game plan for this list. I’m assuming the aggressors are at least encircling.
