As I said before, I'm going to be running a bike army and after looking around, I noticed the Ravenwing battleforce for the Dark Angels would be great way to get a bunch of bikes for my army (and a lot a cheaper to in the long run). However I do have some noob questions about it.
1. Do the bikes come standard with the wings on the sides, or are they just add on's?
2. Does the box set come with any special weapons, such as a PF, TH, or a LC, or does it just come with the PW?
3.Do i have the option of making the Landspeeder inthe battleforce a Typhoon pattern, or do i have to buy the standard landspeederbox set to get one.
3. And I know its not really related, but i heard something that bikes had some sort of relentless rule. Od they have that and if so what does it do?
Thnxs for the help. Have a round on me .

No extra options at all on the bikes. Basically, you are getting standard plastic SM bikes (no metal sarge torso) and the Land Speeder (old model) plus the Dark Angels/Ravenwing upgrade sprue which you may or may not use to assemble the models.
Thnxs for the reply SmokWawelski. However, does the landspeeder spruce come wit h the parts to make the landspeeder typhoon or would I have to but the newer model to get it. Really don't want to fork over the $30 bucks for just one.
Yes you get the parts for the typhoon. No you dont have to have the wings on. Only comes with power weapon no other special options. And relentless lets your bikers rapid fire or fire up to twenty four inches or fire heavy weapons on the attack bikes regardless of movement and they can still charge. The only exception to this is if they turboboost they cant shoot at all.
Most thing's been said already, but:
You get 7 bike sprues, 1 attack bike sprue (to make a bike-> attack bike) and 1 old land speeder (heavybolter/multimelta load out).
On top of this you get 3 (!!!) ravenwing sprues that each have the following:
A ton of ravenwing symbols and shoulder pads, etc.
Two assault cannons (or a twin one), a twin heavy bolter and a typhoon launcher
Three wing bits to add to the bikes (front and back parts)
Some dreadnought parts (why?)
2 power swords
A robed biker marine
A few general SM bits such as purity seals and scrolls
So yes you get 6 assault cannons, 6 power weapons, 3 typhoon launchers etc..
I really wish they had included special weapons in there and it had truly been the best box set of all time, unfortunately they didn't.. So it's only a really, really great set
You can get the weapons sprues off of ebay, or get some spares off of any local marine players you have around.
i cant speak for the ravenwing box but the Bike squadron box comes with all the bits to make Sammaels landspeed(2 assault cannons, typhoon parts,) dreadnaught parts to upgrade a dread to DA, loads of Da symbols, banners, scrols etc if i remember maybe 2 power weapons, the wings for the front are in the but not removabe, (well with a hobby knife ANYTHING is removable......), the feather bits and a robed biker sarge. thats about all that i remember, its been a long time. Hope that helps
have one on me
