I'm considering jumping on the Storm Bolter Biker Vets bandwagon since they escaped the FAQ unscathed.  Previously those points had been dedicated to a pair of Redemptors, but with the impending meta shift towards hordes, I thought I would give the bikers a shot.
 
I'm not sold on the Infiltrators, but I like the Omni-Scramblers rule.

Omniscramblers is nice but I think you'll still find infiltrators horrendously overpriced. Good old scouts can achieve much of the same goals and would give you the points for either a thunderfire or an assassin (plus leftover for other small goodies). Both of those (assuming you take the eversor) assist you further in dealing with the horde meta you are predicting.

I'm sure you're right, but I want to give them a shot.  Typically I run 3x5 Intercessors, and I will probably go back to that if the Infiltrators don't work out.

 

Previously I used a Thunderfire and ran my Contemptors as Relics, but I don't have the points to do that in this build.
