Attack Bikes in WH Armies

Postby Antubis » Sat Nov 08, 2008 3:10 pm

As some of you my know I have recently posted a couple of WH army list using Space Marine Attack Bike Squads, so far no one has told me that they have any problems with this, so I want to know what the general opinion is; can Attack Bike Squads be use in a WH Army or not?

Tahnks, Antubis.

If attack bikes are not listed in the army list, I would say that they cannot legally be used. That would be like trying to use a leman russ in a marine army. It couldn't be legally fielded, but if your opponent is okay with it, why not?

See the sidebar on the left of page 26 of the WH codex - Attack Bikes are not an option.

You cannot put Attack Bikes in a WH army, but you CAN put WH units in a SM army that has attack bikes.

Unfortunately that is the only way to get bikes and WH models together for any fun.
The only "hobby" GW is interested in is lining their pockets with your money.
