I have a question in a dark angels army are you only allowed to take ravenwing bikes or can you take normal bikes as well? I ask this because ravenwing bikes are way overpriced and i don't want to use them
I don't believe so. But I'm not 100% sure.
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
(special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)
I just use normal bikes in my very tiny raven wing army...As long as they arent like chaos bikers or eldar jet bikes, you're probably in the clear.
I dont think he is talking about the actual models,i think he asking whether you can take normal space marine bikers,instead of Ravenwing bikers.My answer is that im pretty sure you have to take Ravenwing Bikers and pay the extra points,but i may be wrong.But look on the bright side i mean they get a 'jink' save and have the skilled rider ability.Originally Posted by Rook
Not sure but I think you have to if you use the Dark Angels list. You could get around this by just fielding your Dark Angels as a codex army, thats what I did and noone ever complained if they knew beforehand. The only real disadvantage is losing out on some of the special items and the stubbornness.
No im pretty sure he wants to feild his army as Dark Angels but he just doesnt want to take Ravenwing Bikers,he wants to take just normal codex Space Marine Bikers,which im pretty sure your not allowed to do.
Yes tycho is right. however when chaosbrynn did his ravenwing list it seem signifigantly lower than it should have been
It was indeed. This is the problem of having someone else post something for you. In a DA army, I am not sure if you can use normal bikers. I believe you can but I dont have my codex. I do know whowever that in a Ravenwing army you MUST use the ravenwing bikers.
Mentor of Space Marine Commanders far and wide.
Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:
1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant
2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers
3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC
The codex doesnt have normal bikers listed in the fast attack section, it does however have a small "fluff" section to the side which says that the 6th company use Bikes and the 7th company Land Speeders.
Every time you read this sig: a fairie dies!
botom of page 9 of the DA codex
"In additon to attached ravenwing squadrons, a Dark Angels force may choose bike squadrons, attack bike squadrons, land speeders, LST's and other LST's from the Codex Space Marines for a cost specified there"
if anyone finds avatar offensive just pm and i will change it
