Keep analyzing the units in the Space Marines codex this time is time for the Fast attack. In concrete I will compare Assault Marines, Bikes and Scout bikes.

I think assault marines are the best choice out of the three though it depends what you need. I take a unit of assault marines as my 'troops' in an unbound list. I run 10 men squads with 2 flamers and without jump packs in replace for a free rhino (which I give a hunter killer as my list includes quite a lot of vehicles). These are really fun to play. I avoid plasma pistols as they are over priced and rarely take anything other than a bolt pistol and chain sword for the sergeant. If I need all the attacks I can get I get a veteran sergeant and if I'm up against a lot of armour I take melta bombs.

Bikes are another good unit. You get slightly more fire power and you are slightly tougher not to mention being really fast as well. The only time I find myself playing bikes though is a squad of three with two melta guns attached to an attack bike with a multi melta or a unit of about 3-5 with a chapter master on a bike.

Scout bikes I have never played and I don't have the models either. Not because they are bad just because I have never tried them.
