When using a captain on a bike or khan on bike space marine bike squads of 5 or more models count as a troop choice. My question is if you go with the standard three, and add only the attack bike would this be a troop choice. When dividing a unit of ten models the attack bike represents two models (combat tactics). I would think that the attack bike wouldn't count as two models for the purpose of making a troop choice. So you would have to add at least one more bike and an attack bike to meet the five model requirement.
What are your opinions?
And always remember the first rule of Warhammer...
(And it has nothing to do with "not talking about Warhammer.")
But everything else is just a little too fragile anyway, so nothing lost really.
The way I understand it Red Archer is 100% correcet here, as the attack bike only counts as two models or terms of combat squadding the bonus does not transfer to squad size.
Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!
Just re-read my post and discovered that I might not have made myself quite clear. That's because I'm lacking a lot of sleep right now. Let me get this straight:
I think that, if we look at the rules, it basically breaks down like this (assuming Bike Captain or Khan, obviously, with 5 bike threshold):
Bought as seen:
5+ standard bikes = scoring
3 standard bikes + AB (or less) = not scoring
4 standard bikes + AB = scoring
Combat squaded (bought as an 8 bike 1 AB unit):
5 standard bikes = scoring
3 standard bikes + AB = scoring
As it states in the rules for combat squadding, the AB counts as two models, but only for the purposes of combat squadding. Ergo, if you buy a ten wound bike unit, you may get 2 scoring units from that, but for anything but combat squads the AB counts as only one model. Ergo, a 3 bike + AB squad can never be scoring if not bought from a combat squad.
