Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey all you SM players!
I Bought an Attack bike as a test bed for the sceme of my future bike army, and I was wondering if you guys could post or give links to pics if your bikes.
Now I may sound picky by saying this but there are a few 'rules' about the pics
1] Must be a pic of a Bike, Attack Bike, any characters on Bikes, Land Speeder and/or other vehicles.
2] Your sceme should not be one of the preexisting chapters, so no Ultramarine Bike Cuz I know what they look like already unless you did something DRASTICALLLY different.
I'm trying to find ideas for my future army 'Steeds of the Order' And I'm hoping to find some inspiration here.
Thanks a lot Marines!
I don't have any pics of my bikes (none painted yet) but I do have a sergeant I converted like so: Take a bolter, prep like ya normally would, and, using green stuff (or by just gluing it) put on one of the sweet combat-knife thingies that come in the bike accessory sprue like a bayonet. Put the bolter on an arm, holding it one-handed, and put it on your biker. I also hollowed out the biker head and put a head without a helmet on. (Then I dicovered that BTs can't have sergeants, but oh well...)
I need the bugger so I can see!
ill post a pic of my ultramarines vet sarge biker when i get home from work. it's a standard biker with the angel wings fairing from the chaplain bike. the sergeant has a combat shield, bolt pistol, and powerfist. his right hand is steering the bike, with the combat shield (it's an old termie shield) attached across the wrist. his bolt pistol is holstered on his hip, and his power fist, which is the spacewolves PF with the wolf skull shaved off, is raised to the front.
may not help you with a custom army paint scheme, but might give you some ideas modelling wise.
I, myself, have been looking for inspiration for an all-bike army...
I haven't even decided upon a name yet!
But, one colour scheme I did find that might be "nifty" was white and silver armour...something along those lines.
Mike, we should so start a universal Bike chapter, with the same colours and everything.
PM me your traits...or if you have an army list up?Originally Posted by MiketehFox
And are you planning on using an Inquisitor etc. in your actual army, or is it just fluff? ^_^
I have yet to make up hardly any fluff for my "chapter" so I'm definitely open to changing stuff up.
Hehe, it looks like a lot of people feel like doing bike armies nowadays. Myself included. I'm planning to use tha same color scheme as my regular space marines, The Angels of Retribution, and fluffwise it is supposed to be the Ravenwing equivalent of the original Dark Angels but i didn't want to use those exact rules, even though i use the DA rules for my normal army.
Edit: Forgot to tell you that my color scheme is: Black armour, red trim and gold detail.
