Welcome to Librarium Online!
Well, got a bit of a bug to make an Ork biker gang here, and I know the most effective way to do that is Nob Bikerz (which is more what I had in mind anyway, a bunch of dead 'ard boyz smashin up wateva) so I'm here to ask about composition. The plan is:
10-15 Lootaz if they fit
7 Nob Bikesx2 Obviously
12 Trukking Sluggazx2, for some support
2-6 Kans, with KMBs to march accross and take out whatever pockets of resistance are left.
Don't know if this will fit into 1500 (I doubt it) but I'm here to ask, aside from the BIker nobs, what else do Nob biker armies need?
Why dont you have wazdakka so regular bikers can be troops?

I find Warbikes really nice. They put out some serious firepower with their dakkaguns and T5 4+ save is nothing to sneeze at, especially when there's a PK in the mix. You can't rush into the enemy's face and assault ASAP (that's what the nobs are for), use their speed and firepower to whittle the enemy down before smashing into them. Also, Wazdakka is made of all kinds of win.
I don't see how this army is a biker cult, you've got Trukks and Lootas who are noticeably not bikers. If you want a Speed Freeks list, Trukka boyz work fine, and you can run some Buggies and Deff Koptaz to hunt tanks or just cause problems on the flanks.

i dont understand how regular bikers are terrible.
You keep warbikers small, units of 5-6. and pick your fights, hide behind cover, attack weak things and flank with the nob Bikes. Bikers who can claim objectives at the alst minute with a turbo boost(or at least contest) are vaulable when used right, taking 12 and marching them across the board to assult something asap, thats when they start to suck.
Well you can't have an army of Warbikers. I'm not saying theyre individually terrible, but they cannot put up a big enough fight to hold up an Ork army. In fact in saying that I'm sure Grax made a post similar to this one a while back. As a single small unit they are ok, as they mesh with the Ork army and arent too high on the target priorities list. However when it is an army of them, they are targetted and gunned down with amazing quickness.
Well anyway. This would be mostly a Biker Cult as I don't expect much else in the army barring the Bikes (I'm now set on having two units of 10 with Warbosses).
