I may be mistaken and my codex is at home but Kahn makes bikes scoring, not troop choices. You'd still need two troop choices to hit the FOC minimum. It's possible I'm just remembering incorrectly and he makes them a troops choice but I feel like its just scoring... can anyone confirm?

If Khan takes moondraken, bike squads of at least 5 models may be taken as troops (just like a standard bike captain)! I actually prefer a normal bike captain over khan as I think that combat tactics really helps your valuable bikers escape costly combats!

Yeah, but with Khan you can outflank and start (or not start) the combat yourself.

I've been wondering whether or not to use Kahn, he has the same stat line as a regular captain but he is 40pts more for outflank, furious charge, hit and run, his moonfang, but are those things worth 40pts?

I think you will find that he's more than 40pts more expensive than a standard bike captain, remember that moondraken is an upgrade that you have to pay for separately!

Captain
Bike
Iron Halo
Bolt pistol
Power weapon
Frag + Krak grenades
150pts

This guy is a very basic captain with minimal upgrades but is 55pts cheaper than Khan! For those extra pts Khan gets a few extras but unless you really want outflank I wouldn't bother with him, as I think that combat tactics would be a better fit to your list.

I prefer 10 man bike squads (well 8 bikes + attack bike), it a little more flexable as-

1. You can use them as a 10 man squad when playing kill point missions minimising the amount of kill points you give away.

2. During normal missions you can combat squad them to give you double the amount of scoring units.

3. Keeps the attack bike's alive for longer as they are hidden in a unit so they have some "padding".

Its just a personal preference really, but I also would drop a few thing's from your command squad as they are seriously expensive and will be guaranteed to be shot to hell from turn 1! I also find that special weapons work better in pairs, as if you mix them your always going to be wasting the potential of one of them.

Well, hopefully to keep the captain and his command squad alive, i plan on turbo boosting them turn 1

I think you should integrate multi-melta attack bikes into your bike squads and give your bikes squads two special weapons each, preferably meltaguns. Vendettas will love to wipe out your attack bike squadrons. If you drop one attack bike and have the other 5 in your bike squads, then you should have enough points to pay for those upgrades.
