Okay I'm wondering if you think that a Speed Freaks all bike army? Would there be enough models to be some what playable or would they get shot up to quickly?
Prey they don't take you alive
While a fun idea, wait for the new dex. If anything, because hopefully we will be getting new models. The current models, in my opinion, are awful. Also, 30 points for a 5+ save is pretty crappy.
So expect at the very least for them to stay the same but the point cost go down. Overall though, a nice structire might be 5 squadrons of 8 with a nob toting a Klaw in each. Then a bikeboss to go tank hunting. That's around 1500 just off the top of my head.
The learning curve for this army would be just about 180 degrees and could fall into the one-hit-wonder category, destroying some while getting obliterated by most.
Sounds like a cool idea except for one thing...Most armys basic troops can take down the bikes as if they were made out of jelly or something else which falls apart if something touchs it. On the other hand if your friend has annyoing sm bikes or weak units then give the nob eavy armour and a power claw and shoot them with big shootaz (twin-linked, thank gork) and assault them. More than once before this has wiped out a sm bike squad in a turn or two.
