I'm currently building my EC bikes, I only have three :cry: so I want to get the most
out of them, what would be some suggestions on weapons etc to make them really effective in combat, preferably shooty.
Well, bikers inherently don't have many options. You're set on taking the Mark of Slaanesh, so there's one thing. You should probably take Sonic Blaster upgrades for them all, as they're extremely cheap and almost triple each biker's firepower.
Do you plan on having a Champion in the squad at some point? Three bikers is a pretty small unit - you should aim for six, honestly. Once you have a Champion, arm him with a Powerfist or Powerweapon+Strength combo.
What do you plan on doing with them? Harassing unit? Sonic Blasters should work fine. Tank Busting unit? Give two of the bikers some Melta Guns and fry some tanks. I don't recommend Plasma Guns as bikers are expensive models to be losing to the occassional overheat.
I agree with Caluin. If you go with slaanesh bikers then you should get Sonic Blasters. That will give you good shooting abilities from even a small squad. A champ is nearly mandatory in my opinion since the options Caluin mentioned makes him capable of dealing with most things in cc. On most other bikers I would probably go for the p-fist, but that loses you the nice initiative bonus.
Also. Model an icon onto one of them, since slaaneshi bikers love nothing more than to summon daemonettes right in the middle of the enemy army.
all good advice.
Thanks for the icon suggestion Arizzar, I hadn't thought of that. good way of getting cc units in quickly.
Thanx for the advice guys, much appreciated
