Goatboy’s Warhammer 40k: Bike Scars go VROOM!

Goatboy here again and I thought – it’s time for an all biker list – Outrider style.

I am sure the new Outrider bikes will allow for a larger units so why not throw some things together to get a super fast list.  Just full of bikers going to town into your lines.  It also appears that bikers are going to keep the CORE keyword – which means Auras will still work on them and hopefully some of the old crazy Chappie combos gets them moving fast.  The worst thing in all of this is we don’t have a “troop” biker option but we got 2 bikes to pick from so let’s roll with it.

Space Marines Battalion – 0CP
Chapter – White Scars

-HQ-
Primaris Chaplain on an Outrider Bike – Warlord – Wise Orator – 135pts
Captain on a Bike – Powersword, Relic – Burning Blade – 105pts

-Troops-
Assault Intercessor Squad X 10 – Thunder Hammer – 205pts
Assault Intercessor Squad X 10 – Thunder Hammer – 205pts
Assault Intercessor Squad X 10 – Thunder Hammer – 205pts

-Fast Attack-
Bike Squad X 5 – Thunder Hammer – 140pts
Bike Squad X 5 – Thunder Hammer – 140pts

Space Marines Outrider Detachment – -3CP
Chapter – White Scars

-HQ-
Captain on a Bike – Thunder Hammer – 140pts

-Fast Attack-
Outrider Squad X 5 – Thunder Hammer (I hope) – 240pts
Outrider Squad X 5 – Thunder Hammer (I hope) – 240pts
Outrider Squad X 5 – Thunder Hammer (I hope) – 240pts

Pts: 1995 (maybe) CP: 7-8 most likely

Get Your Motor Running

This army is again is just a thought idea if the points stay the same.  I am expecting Bikes to get an extra wound and this a 20% increased so most likely this type of list would have to be tweaked.  The chapter trait seems set up perfectly for this type of list as everything will move fast, be tough, and throw out a ton of damage – especially in round 3 if the doctrines stay the same.  I think we will see some bike stuff come out as we get the new points and as players figure out that having some quick units to pester an opponent in their zone is extremely powerful in keeping the game in your favor.

Plus it will let me work on some regular bikers to go along with the Outriders.  Depending on if the ATV ends up being good (I am expecting it to be decent) we might see the bikers go away and we sit on an army full of Primaris acting like some kind of biker gang delivering vengeance filled papers of doom.

~Let’s see just how powerful the White Scars turn out to be next month.
