I've only ever used DA as allies, and my White Scars have been kicking ass as my bike army. I'm just looking for something a little different but still competitive. Just an idea. I'd love to have some experience tell me why this is good/bad. I don't even have a DA player around here to steal ideas from.

200 Sammael
215 Command (Apoth, Dev Banner)

155 3x Bikes (2x Melta)
MM Attack Bike

165 3x Bikes (2x Plasma)
MM Attack Bike

155 3x Bikes (2x Plasma)
HB Attack Bike

135 3x Bikes (2x Flamer)
HB Attack Bike

145 TLLC Mortis
145 TLLC Mortis
115 ML Mortis

The Mortis of course are the Mark V Mortis Dreadnought from Forgeworld IA2. They pack either two lascannons or two missile launchers and gain skyfire/interceptor when they stay still, or fire as usual for a dread on the move.

I have. Matter of fact, that used to be my 100% go to with them. But now-a-days, flyers with an armor value don't scare me too much. Some are definitely better than others, but my main concern is xenos armies around here and with them come the FMC. I need something that can plaster a 3+ armor save to force jink saves. That flying hive tyrant would be 200+ points of snap shots from a 115 or 145 point dreadnought for the rest of the game. Please bring more! I have shots to go around! But if I brought the autocannon, those guys wouldn't bat an eye about taking the armor saves.

Hmmm. I like the idea. Let me crunch some numbers and get back on the black knights. It's not really supposed to be an obsec spam list, but can function like one if need be. And no, I really don't need that much melta. It's just the models I have. I do have more HB Attack Bikes though.

I like. I just need to get another TLLC dreadnought arm. I'm a cheap skate so I'm using regular dreadnought arms flipped upside down at the moment and I only have 5 lascannons. Also, I didn't think command squads could ever be larger than 3 models. I'm going to need some more black knights too. I think I've got a total of six. I do really like the idea of black knights over plasma ravenwing though. I hate it when I kill myself with plasma and the twin-linked can really help that out. Not to mention more hits is more kills. Thanks for taking the time to help out with this one!

FAQs.... bah. They should have got it right the first time! Thanks though. That is a big help. I'd love to have some more T5, FNP guys to suck up wounds from my banner.

I could make one... I normally don't glue my dreads and I hate magnets. But I've got an extra TLLC arm that I snapped off a glued model once. And it's a SW one... feels so wrong.

I've got a few magnetized models that I've bought used. Just not a huge fan. I do like my magged up furioso so I can make a fragioso. The only models Ive magnetized myself was my dreadknight and some speeder bases. I just prefer the staying power of unglued dread arms with their pegs.

The face plate thing is an awesome idea! I have one libbienought that's pure built already and the bits to make another. I just need an unbuilt dread since the 15 I have are all glued together bodywise.
