I would appreciate help with unit size and equipment for a biker unit. I own 5 models and can assemble them in any configuration. I was thinking about making the unit cheap or go all out shooting (2x plasma and Combi-plasma on Champion).

Personally, I would obtain one more bike, and do two squads of three, plasma-plasma-combi-plasma.

 

SO cheap for a decent harassment unit. Enough firepower to actually do something, not so much that they're a blazing target. And Chaos needs fast.

This or just a unit or four with triple plasma with what you have. You would probably shuffle points around, so 3-4 would be good size unit.

I've been running 6 with just combi-bolters and chainswords for shredding most infantry with VotLW and Endless Cacophony. For only 140 points I don't feel too bad when they eventually get destroyed.

I am kinda put off with how much real estate the new bases take up compared to the old rectangle cav bases. So 3-4 with specials is easier to hide, your bigger stock unit doesn't really need to because they are more disposable in comparison.

I like dual flamer+Combi-flamer since they can fire while advancing and IW ignore cover. The 3D6 number of shots mitigates the wonkiness of flamers. 
 

Opponents are always caught off guard with the level of harassment they bring for 99pts.


Call me Indy. It's less syllables.

Here you go! They are work in progress but I can post finished pictures if you like.

Ok, here is the squad just glued and primed silver. I will probably make another champion in the future so that I can use them as two squads. For now I decided to make the champions hand swapable so I can give him any weapon (Combi plasma in the work, I have plenty FW Combi-meltas and Combi-flamers) The special weapons will be attached to bikes so I can also swap them at will.

Many thanks for comments and ideas!
