I personally think that the new rules for the bikes make them about the
right cost. Yeah, they can be ahot in H2H, but they still were very good
value, especially with the dual purpose Vypers.

Oh, yeah they only get a few, but still damn nasty. And those warbuggies
really annoy me, and they are so cheap.

The gyro is definitely a command unit. Our squat players usually have
another squad of gyros running around with it so that it can't be targeted.
