Default painboy on bike

hi guys, recently, i saw someone fielding a speed freaks army, that included a painboy on a warbike in his nobz biker squad. I was wondering if this was legal, as that could be useful for my nobz biker squad, especially when led by wazdakka >. stupid railguns.

Yes, it's legal and no, it won't help against railguns.

Who would shoot a solid shot at a unit of bikers... I'd use the submunition...

I assumed he meant the solid, otherwise he should have a decent cover save anyways and one or two shouldn't worry Nob Bikers anyway.

Completly unrelated, but I hope you've equipted every nob differently. It makes killing them a bitch.

Actually, this is very related if you think about it.

Equipped the same, otherwise templates will worry you (demolisher/battle cannons especially).

I hate the mentality behind it, but HFG has a point, you should have different equipment or designations (Painboy, Wazdakka, etc.) since it raises survivability immensely.

I don't run Nobz, but I played against them, and it SUCKED. I'm just glad Typhus has a force weapon.

actually, I ment the ability to get cybork bodies. in a unrelated topic, typhus annoys me greatly. I dont know why, but he always manages to pass his fnp :P. power klaws are nice though.

Yep. Having the Painboy in there is definitely useful against even the high-end weapons, since you need him to buy the Invulnerable save for the rest of them. Nob Bikers are expensive enough that you can expect to lose the cover save when playing against Tau, so the Cybork upgrade is usually worth it even if you are only dealing with shooting. And you tend to need it anyway against opponents who can field Power Fists.
