Default Warbikers

Do regular Warbikers have 1 wound or 2 wounds standard? I ask because my codex shows them with 1 wound, while my friend's codex shows them with 2 wounds. I think it's 1, but I don't want to just tell him that his codex is wrong.

Normal warbikers have 1 wound, warbiker nobs have 2. There was a few misprints with the 5th edition ork codex, which was fixed up in an eratta on gw's website. perhaps have a look at that eratta and print it out so you dont have to buy the reprinted ork codex. It has all the mistakes in the first released 5th ed ork codex, and what it was replaced by when they edited it. Now they sell the fixed up codex's, but beware if your buying from ebay :P

The Nob for Warbiker in the first print had a typo stating him as W1 but the Ork FAQ corrected that putting him at W2. Normal Warbikers have always been listed as W1 though, which is correct. I assume you meant the Nob for them, right?

'Fraid not Thor. The entry in the back of his codex (with the options and such), shows the Warbikers at 2 wounds a piece.

According to my codex Warbikers are 1 wound each. If you look at page 101 in the codex it shows both the regular Warbikers and the Nob as one wound. The Nob's entry is incorrect - as noted in the FAQ - the Nob should have 2.

Interesting. It may be a more limited typo. Regardless, Warbikes have 1 and Nob Bikers have 2.

Must've been. I was sure they had only 1 wound, but his was the only Ork codex there at the time; so I didn't really have anyway to disprove it, and I'm typically the guy who 'rains on everyone's parade' when they get something wrong with rules or codex issues.

My codex also shows bikers with 2 wounds and nobs with 2 wounds, the FAQ errata only addresses the nobs having 2 wounds not 1, it does not mention that bikers should have only 1.

That's curious. Is your Ork codex the English version or another language?
