Okay. I have bought the Ork Battleforce and the Battle for Black Reach (Weeks prior).
I have currently in my possession 3 unassembled Warbikes, 3 DeffKoptas (easily converted to Warbikes) and 5 Reaver Jetbikes in current Conversion to either.
My question is: Which is better? For what situations?
And do you think it would be a big deal if I made the Reaver Jetbikes DeffKoptas or Warbikes? The people I play with are fine with it, but in the eyes of a stranger - would you allow it in a game?
For a note - my Regular Opponents will be A Khornate Chaos Army with Alot of Big guns..No Terminators, but a Pred, Rhino, And Defiler, And an Imperial Guard with Chimera, Basilisk, Lots of Guardsmen Buffed to the teeth, and just alot of Infantry, really.
In all fairness matey, I use both Deffoptas and Warbikes in my current 2k list. I find that the Deffkoptas are a good unit to use against various vehicles while the Warbikes provide anti infantry results, while I move my Ard Boyz into assault.
I find that whichever you field has an advantage an a disadvantage, but that really is the same with many units, its just finding the balance of everythnig, and which tactics suit which unit best, to achieve victory.
If I had to pick between the tw it wold have to be Deffkoptas, as they have 2 wounds and the same save as a single wound warbiker.But that choice is up to you.
Hope that cleared at least something up for you,

i would pick nob bikers.
I would pick bikers because they have a cover save, can have larger squads, can have nobs (PK and bosspole) and they get more shots.
Points wise bikers get much more bang per buck.

I'd do 2 deffkoptas and 3 bikez. That way you'd have 5 deffkoptaz and 6 bikez, which are the best unit sizes for both kind of units, IMHO
