Here is a list that I have made to satisfy my bike army cravings while keeping away from Power Armor. This list isn't meant to be for high-end tourney play.

HQ

Wazdakka Gutsmek 180

Elites

Nobz 335
4 Models
2 Power Claws
1 Power Claw + Waaagh!!! Banner
1 Pain Boy
Cybork Bodies
Bikes

Lootas 150
10 Models

Lootas 150
10 Models

Troops

Warbikers 320
11 Boyz
Nob w/ BP+PK

Warbikers 320
11 Boyz
Nob w/ BP+PK

Warbikers 320
11 Boyz
Nob w/ BP+PK

Grotz 61
16 grotz
1 Runtherd

Total: 1501

I dont know how competative this would be but I think it might be fun, Wazdakka at least would be funny all by himself.

Thoughts?

The Nobz are a bit expensive but they give me a bit of a rock unit. They cost about the same as a unit of warbikers but would swapping them add much more to the army?

jake, if you persue this course of action, i will mercilessly taunt you until you purchase the FW warboss on bike.

go big or go home :p
That was my plan all along :D Jet powered bike FTW.

Its looks pretty cool. Im running a kult of speed myself. they look great. I had a few ideas. see what you think

I run a similar nob unit of 4 but with 1 powerclaw and Wazdakka or a warboss with a powerklaw. it helps to save some points and gives you some relatively expendable troops and has a similar killy effect (It also makes use of the nobz i4 on charge and provides an extra attack per model at strength 5-still pretty killy!!!).

The other idea I'm toying with is fielding a 2nd warboss in the unit with a big choppa. S8 I5 on the charge and a large number of attacks makes him great for taking down pesky dredz that might otherwise take down Waz with an auto kill if they get the opportunity to charge (s10 is a pain when you don't hit first). He is relatively cheap and can split from the unit at any time (again useful if you want to charge a unit next to a dred). A warboss will also make the nobz unit troop choice (useful for dawn of war as they can then deply with wazdakka in turn 1).

Have you considered running smaller bike unitz (they may break quicker but they are more flexible and easier to move

If you have the time don't wast money on fw. Buy some green stuff, get out your bitz box and convert a nob or blackreach warboss. He'll be unique, bigger and much more orky.

nob squad with all power klaws is horrifying, both in that they can kill really well, and that they could all be killed before getting a single attack. Just remember that entire squad always goes after whatever they attack. Also throw in a boss pole or something to make the squad fully unique. As it stands now, if that squad took four hits and all the hits ended up wounding, you'd lose a model. For 5 points they can take 4 hits that wound and not lose a model.
