It’s prob just more they are wanting to fill out other parts of the range and armor variations first - and that’s clearly being staged over many years.

Sammael has either Twin Storm Bolters and a Plasma Cannon, and a Sword; or he has Twin Assault Cannons and Twin Heavy Bolters, and still has a Sword.
For a SM he is quite the Dakka carrier.

 
Read his datasheet again:
 

Sammael in Sableclaw is a single model armed with the Raven Sword. His Land Speeder Sableclaw is equipped with a twin assault cannon and twin heavy bolter.

Sammael on Corvex is a single model armed with the Raven Sword, a bolt pistol, frag grenades and krak grenades. His jetbike Corvex is equipped with a plasma cannon and a twin storm bolter.

 
All he has across both is a pistol. Unless we bring unrelated vehicles in, then I choose a Baneblade whistlingW.gif

Sometimes it's about... oh wait, who am i kidding rolleyesclean.gif all the time... It's all about money ,This game isn't so much about the fluff and models anymore .... In this day and age i expect things like this to happen ... essays could be written in length about this but it would be a waste of time...
GW are like the underpant Gnomes

Stage 1. Old models = phase out (and perhaps steal underpants too)
Stage 2. ....Insert new models and force them to be used
Stage 3. Profit happy.png

Mithril

Hate to burst your bubble, but it has always been about the money.

You'd think a company was out to make money or something...

I was trying to find it, but I thought that on one of the VoxCasts or in an interview with one of the model designers, there was an agreement amongst some of those folks that Marines on bikes was a goofy idea and they were moving away from it. I haven’t been able to find that and so maybe it was a weird fever dream or something different was actually said.

Meanwhile riding giant wolves is super believable...

It's weird to me when the say stuff like this. The whole thing is goofy lol.

The giant wolves are a status symbol smile.png
Personally I hate the bike models as they look like toys IMO

Possibly their logic is the bikes massively limit detail/poses

 

 

Well, they ARE toys. Just like every other miniature we buy, build, sometimes paint and use to PLAY with. msn-wink.gif
