Anyone who has even thought about fielding an all biker army has at some point in time come to the realization of how much it would cost for that many bikers, being $45-ish per 3 you buy, and having 25+ bikers in the army depending on size of game, that may turn many people away from the idea.
My question is for you guys and gals that have gone through with the painstaking cost of such an army, did you guys just go through your nearby hobby store and fork out the $45 per 3, or can anyone recommend any retailer that maybe allow to purchase in bulk at discounted rates, or just simply any ideas to cut down the cost would be great, thanks
I've been looking at purchasing an all biker army as well.
The best value for money wise is the Dark Angels ravenwing box set. You don't have to use any of the additional pieces so can just be run as ordinary bikers.
They retail at £50 for 6 bikers, 1 attack bike and a land speeder. Not sure what that is in dollars but im sure it works out cheaper than buying the sets individually.
Buy them seperately online, 3 bikes is then £15 and not £25
For get your Mr T, John Mayer leaks pure awesomeness with every note he plays.
ok so i just checked out the ravenwing boxed set, do you know if the DA symbol on the front fenders is molded onto the bike? everyting else looks like they are optional for details or can be trimmed off rather easy, but ya that would be a great savings, rep for the idea
Get the DA ravenwing boxed set in. 6 bikers, attack bike and landspeeder with weapon options is perfect for anyone whos serious about taking on a biker army. all of the DA iconography is additional i believe (the battleforce comes with a DA upgrade sprue) and even if its not the case 2 minutes work with a file gets rid of it no problem.
Cost wise i'd say it all depends where abouts your from (here in UK, ive seen them go for as little as £32) so a bare minimum is £150 but that should give you at least 1500 points to play with, probable more. Additional costs depend on if you plan on adding thing such as a biker command squad or what type of conversion for your HQs you take on
Ya the Ravenwing set is a bargain, can anyone verify whether it comes with the DA upgrade spur or not? I only ask because i know that spur has a couple assualt weapons, that way i dont have to buy them seperatly.
