40k: Space Marine Bike Army Evolution

I ordered some stuff.  

4 Ravenwing battleforces, a SM command squad, and 3 pairs of dreadnought Autocannon arms from Forgeworld.

With this stuff plus stuff I already own I can make the following...

1 Captain on bike (duh)
1 Command Squad on Bikes
1 Librarian on Bike (dark angel hooded bike guy from the battleforce can easily be converted to a Librarian)

3x 6 Bike Squads of whatever special weapon config I want w/ MM Attack bike

3x MM attack bikes extra

3x MM/HF Speeders

4x Speeders of whatever variety I want to build

3x Rifleman Dreadnoughts

10x TH/SS Termies

Now, I know there is a list in here, but just in case this isn't enough for a balanced list, I have basically everything a Space Marine player should have including all the usual mech stuff,  and Drop Pods, etc.

Is there anything else that I'm missing that I should look into getting?  Next week I'll post some 2k and 'Ard Boyz list ideas.  Until then, I'd love to hear suggestions if I'm forgetting anything necessary for a bike list.


  1. This is the entire basis for Stelek's "Best of Space Marines: Part Deux" which is, I think, a really fun and kickass list.

  2. I do have all the stuff for that, but I'm leary of taking lists with Land Raiders anymore. I can definitely play that one and see how I like it, but I have a feeling I'll hate the Land Raiders.

  3. Cool man, bike armies are fun, but it's going to be a pretty tough army to play well, though I'm sure you already know that. If you ever use your attack bikes, I wrote a tactica on them a while ago on my blog. Feel free to check it out:
