Is an ork biker army viable?
How would You build it?
Bikers+grots, only bikers, Nob bikers etc...
I am building up a large ork army on the ruins of my other armies, and want to include a "travel size" army, what looks difficult from orks, but I don`t want two or more armies (anymore).
Every opinion appreciated as well as any better idea for an army that I can carry with me in a shopping trip (just pop in to a black store while my mistress enjoys shopping).
You could definitely do this and it would be a great travel army. I used a White Scars army as a travel army - 2000 points in one GW case - for when I flew out of town every other week on business.
Build a Wazdakka model, a Nobz biker unit and a bunch of biker mobs.
I often use an almost completely biker army and its awesome! 4+ cover saves everywhere is very annoying for the enemy as well as everything being toughness 5.
In 1500 points I use:
Warboss on bike
Nob biker squad
2 squads of normal bikers
Looted wagon with 10 burnas in it.
The only problem I have is against guard tank spam.
Also this is the only way I manage to get a completely painted ork army on the table as I'm lazy and this is quicker than painting 100 boyz!

Been here nearly 10 years and still haven't managed 500 posts.
I just made a list that had Wazdakka, 6 Nobz+painboy, and five units of bikers - each of 4 regular bikers and one PK Nob. 33 figures. Exactly 1500 points. Taking a warboss instead of a biker squad would save even more space.
I`ve made `bout ten different lists, the "funniest" was 2 warbosses and three squads of nob bikers, looks like a death wing army but at the end, I think I`ll take some lootaz for `eavy support and a mob of `ard boyz wiv shoota to hold the home objective+protect the lootaz. I already have models, it also some savings. Not only bikers but still travelsize.
Here are the lists:
I use five man strong squads with my White Scar successors, they are killy enough. My only concern is the low Ld. How they work? Are they not running easily just like the koptaz? Or just Turboboost, hit the enemy asap?
I have found that five bikes is the right size...six at most. Too many bikes and it's difficult to maneuver. Plus you want a fair number of Nobz, so more units is better....
