When it comes to the Standard Land Speeder, do you think the LS Tornado or the FW LS Tempest would be a better option to field in 9th edition and why?

I think it would vary on what you need it to do. i have one (tempest) and it is a nice looking kit, but i only used it once in 8th before going back to playing 5th edition where the weapon loadout was different. it was just a single twin linked krak or frag missile and an assault cannon (with rending) with a front AV of 11, but it was also 120 points.


With the change to weapons profile the cannon is a wash but you have to compare the new and improved heavy bolter to the tempest launcher and see which one works better for you for the points cost.

Given the fact the primaris are getting their own super land speeder you may want that instead since primaris stuff seems to be better overall.

Depends on what happens to the Tempest. We haven't seen it's new datasheet yet AFAIK. As it stands currently it looks like the Tempest is currently slightly cheaper than a HB/AC Tornado. I wouldn't expect that to remain so. Prices probably won't be that different, but I would expect it to go up. Situationally they'll be better vs different targets Randomly fewer better shots vs reliably more worse shots. The Tempest Launcher is basically half a Grav Cannon with +1S in a range where +1S is less important than say 3 to 4 or 7 to 8.

I'd lean towards the Tornado though, if just because you magnetize the AC/HF and swap out the HB/MM too.

My WHFB armies were Bretonians and Tomb Kings.
