Default ?? Biker Army ??

Has anyone got a sample of a SM Biker army (1850ish)

I play Eldar (Falcon/Serpants and Wraithlords) so I know somewhat of Fast Yet FAGILE

I was just inquisitive of what a successful Biker Army would be built like?

No sample yet, but the primary drawback of an all biker force is only 3 fast attack options. I would take lots of 5+ man bike squads with a commander or khorsarro khan on a bike making them troops.
I considered an army like this but I got discouraged by the cost, £25 for 3 bikes!

Hope it helps a bit, i'll try to do some further research!

A tooled-up command squad on bikes can be very deadly. Get two! Also take tornado configuration land speeders for anti-tank duty.

Would you be looking at Standard Marine codex biker army or are you thinking DA Ravenwing army?

I am thinking (only thinking) about making a pure Biker-ish SM army (I am no where knowledgeable of Space marines in depth)

But I was thinking about making a Whole army (Fluffy) all Harley Look. I have see the Side car Bike on GW site and have seen bikes in armies.

So thats my rational..

You will probably regret using Ravenwing. They are extremely expensive in 5th for what they do, and the only special ability they really have requires you to field Terminators with them. Better to go with the White Scars special character.

You can get real close with a Space Wolf army, 2 Grey Hunters in Raizorbacks will not slow you down Much.

I was working on a Wolf Lord with a MC Thunder hamder and a all of his Wolf Guard with MC Thunder Hammers ;D

In order to get the bikes as troop choices you're going to need to add Khan with Moondrake specifically. Might as well throw Shrike into the mix as well so that all your 5+ bike squads are troop choices and fleet to match.
