Have just noticed that Chaos SM bikes cost 33 points whilst Imperial SM Bikes cost an additional 25 points each. Aside from the better leadership, is this because the Chaos bikes have a CCW as well as a bolt pistol and therefor get 1 more attack that Imperial SM bikes, ie 1+1 vs 1?

Also can a bike fire both it's twin-linked bolters and Bolt Pistol/Flamer etc in the shooting phase, or must you choose?

You can fire one weapon per model on the bike, iirc.

If Chaos costs more, it's probably largely because it's an older, outdated, 4th codex that strives to stab you in the face for playing it.

Yeah, but who likes to play a codex that just rolls over and lets you win all the time?!

...about 95% of the people *I* know :laugh:

The chaos bikes cost more but have the ability to get bumped up to T6 or have extra attacks etc in combat. Not quite as worth it as the SM bikers but still pretty close, and T6 is great for playing against eldar, just get into CC with just about anything and then laugh.
