Current theme : Bikes.
Normal marines bored me. The tactic of sitting there and shelling the hell out of my opponent and sitting in cover bored me, but not quite a fan of BT or BA because I feel it leaves me fewer options than I would have otherwise.
Current set up :
Lib on bike (comes to 166 points)
1 squad of 5 bikes
2 squads of 5 marines with Ml's.
With the buffed lib, it comes to 498. Small friendly games with friends, so it's generally entertaining.
Few questions :
Probably just going to use the Commander on bike model (because I like the model) so how would you guys suggest making a hood?
Suggestions to take on traits? Codex adherence gets a bit...boring.
Worth dropping a bike to get a sarge + P.wep + B.pistol + Combat sheild? I have 5 points left over so I could upgrade to a P.fist if need be.
Colour Scheme Idea's. Quite frankly I have none at the moment and if I paint one more thing blue.....
Thanks for the input.
Well, legaly you should take traits (you must maybe?).
Take a SM shoulder pad, chop it verticly in two and trim them a bit and fit them on the sides of you librarian.
Do the same with the one that should sit on top of the head
Um, the sarge is riding a bike?
Can he really take Power weapon AND combat sheild?
Anyway, good luck
Maybe a loophole to some, but others see it as exploiting the rules.Originally posted by FlatFeet@Mar 19 2005, 20:55
There is a small loophole in the rules, you apparently don't need to have one hand fee for the bike handling. So yes, you can use two one handed weapons.[snapback]356035[/snapback]
Common sense should be used at all times
*points himself and others towards bike tactica*
Using a loophole and exploiting hte rules are the same thing.
That idea for a psychic hood was cool, never htought of using the shoulder pads!
My idea would be to take a lib model and cut off the psychic hood and glue it on, though I dunno how hard that would be...
White scars have a lotta bikes, whatabout them?
About the loophole, it's a hilarious vision of SMs on bikes holding a weapon on both hads and riding no-handed. :rofl: They must be really skillfull.
Expert riders ^^.
Personally I always just figure if they're on a bike they aren't just sitting there trading blows, they're whipping around and running stuff down, thusly the +1 attack for a CC wepon I always just figured I'd incorperate into their bike...
The combat sheild I put on the same arm as the power wepon, then have the holster on the model for a pistol, seems logical enough.
Painting purposes : Using the whiteScar idea....Just because in the future it'd be interesting to play a WS army.
the way I see it, those oh-so-realistic foot and a half wide tyres on teh bikes add so much stability, they only need one hand most of the time...
as for it being a loophole, or exploitive, please, it was an intentional ommission from the rules, hence, the lack of an FAQ to 'fix' it
As for the hood, on dysartes there is an article about GSed hoods and robes, its exactly what you are lookin for.
It really is a funny idea to own people while no-handing a bike. Those tires are awfully wide, ya think? It's for stabilization I guess. If they were thinner then the models would tip over.
