So I really like the White Scars ever since I started playing so 10yrs later with Khan back I kinda want to make an army of them but I have a question about bikes and the weapons you can carry. So is it legel to give a marine a TH+SS if he is on a bike so that in CC he has a 3+ inv and the S8 attck or can I only have one or the other because he has to steer the bike? I looked in the rulebook and it didnt say anything against it but I wanted to double check. Also if i got a power sword and pistol on a bike I still get the +1 attack for 2 CC weapons right? Just wanted to clarify.

Marines don't need both hands (or indeed any hands) free in order to steer their bikes. My favourite explanation for this is that the bikes are actually self-steered by an on-board computer, Lawmaster style.
This also explains what happens if the Marine gets knocked off his bike. He just hits a button and it comes back to him so he can get back on.

Mr_Wayne: "Some people believe that the World Eaters do not field any ranged weaponry. Those people often die at a distance."
Either they do the obvious thing and have holster built in to the bike (or on their power armor) or they link up the bike to their armor (like they do with their weapons) and drive with their mind.
Terminator armor going critical would be like Three Mile Island only very, VERY angry, and carrying a hammer.
LO rules in a nutshell: Don't post unit costs, be polite, rep posts containing of win.
I like the idea of Marines riding with their feet actually (but not on the bars). I also like the way that some people put the shields on the sides of the bikes (attached to the fuel tank most often) and covering the leg of the rider - very much like what some horse riders used to do. Having the shield on rider's back is another idea, although that would be hard to do with the power armor backpack taking so much space already... I modeled my own HQ with a servitor skull holding the bars for its master.
