Heyas,

Does anyone know if gw still has the bike upgrade sprue or whether i need to just buy tac marines for the specials?

Also are bikes any good in 8th? Getting back into the game and loved the idea of bikes before smile.gif

Cheers,
Tim

Bikes are awesome support (+2 wds each). the twin bolters + some kind of rerolls = actual damage (+add the specials and a combi and its brutal) Coupled with the additional speed they are a great harassment unit to kill small objective holders or minimum devastators etc.

If you want them to be really good make them Ravenwing or Whitescars....

Trade around for special weapons now you can arm mount them the guy can shoot bolters and special. I think I have a couple of the old metal torso's lying around.

Sounds like the only option for conversions.. will look on ebay too if i go that way..

Thanks for the tips on them too.. now that you say they are harass units not sure if they will be best for the lsit.. playing blood angels so will post a few lists and see where i net out smile.gif

Bikes are also good as Ultrasmurfs since they can fall back and still shoot.
