    Sternguard Bike Squad

    This idea was birthed last night, from a conversation gone very wrong: "Forge World's Chaplain Dreadnought" -> "A Librarian Dreadnought would be awesome!" -> "What else would be cool, and actually make sense?" -> "Vanguard should be able to select Bikes instead of Jump Packs!" -> "No way! Sternguard Bikers make much more sense!"

    And, being how I am.. I couldn't help but make it ... So, here you go! Let me know what you think ^-^

    Sternguard Bike Squad.............. 120 Points


    .............................WS...BS.....S.....T.....W....I....A....Ld...Sv
    Biker Sergeant..........4......4......4...4(5)...1....4.....2.....9...3+
    Veteran Biker............4......4......4...4(5)...1....4.....2.....9...3+
    Veteran Attack Bike....4......4......4...4(5)...2....4.....3.....9...3+

    Unit Composition:

    1 Biker Sergeant
    2 Veteran Bikers
    Unit Type:
    Bike
    Wargear:
    Power Armour
    Bolt Pistol
    Special Issue Ammunition
    Frag and Krak Grenades
    Space Marine Bike
    Special Rules:
    And They Shall Know No Fear
    Combat Tactics
    Combat Squads
    Sternguard Assault

    Options:
    May include up to five additional Veteran Bikers for +40 points per model

    The Biker Sergeant may replace his bolt pistol and/or his boltgun with:
    -a chainsword............................................................xxxx
    -a power weapon or lightning claw........................+xx points
    -a plasma pistol................................................+xx points
    -a power fist......................................................+xx points

    The Sergeant Biker may take:
    -meltabombs......................................................+x points

    Any model may replace his Space Marine bike's twin-linked boltguns with:
    -a storm bolter, combi-melta, -flamer, or -plasma...+x points

    If the unit numbers eight, add up to two Veteran Attack Bikes armed with a twin-linked boltgun and:
    -heavy bolter.....................................................+50 points
    -multi-melta......................................................+60 points

    Bestiary:
    Special Issue Ammunition: See Vanguard Veterans, Codex: Space Marines (5e), page 63.
    *The Sternguard Bike Squad's Special Issue Ammunition can be used by the Space Marine bike's twin-linked Boltgun or Combi-weapon.

    Sternguard Assault: If the army contains a Space Marine Captain mounted on a Bike, that army may include up to three Sternguard Bike Squads as elite choices. If chosen, this rule replaces the Captain's Mounted Assault special rule.

    I've recently become a fan of this thing called Dubstep. And you should too.

    Nice Idea, a few copypasta errors in there i am sure. Bestiary for special rules?
    Vanguard reference under special ammo rules. Sgt can replace a bolter he is not issued with to begin with. All small things.

    Why did you decide to replace twin bolters with combi weapons? This is similar to how chaos work, regualr marines generally replace their pistols with an assault weapon.
    You also did not give the option to bring any special weapons, which regualr bikes and sternguard are allowed.
    2 attack bikes? That would make the squad 12 men strong. Robute Gulliman would like a word with you about that!

    I think this is a really cool idea, but would allow the bringing of special weapons, and only allow one attack bike.
