Oh man, ideas are rolling... should we maybe have a bike building/conversion night where everyone can come in and help build obstacles and more track items, and of course their bikes?

I like this idea. Matt will need to pre order bikes for those involved. I know players can use existing bikes that they have, but half the fun is making your own bike. The ork 3 bike pack is perfect for this, but I was thinking of going eldar this time around unless I build Mongo again.

As for terrain, what we need for the race are barriers and ramps.

Question: I'm assuming that skill points reset after each race?

I might go the Eldar route, or maybe dark Eldar... more of a slick bike that out runs/out manoeuvres everyone instead of blowing them to bits ;)

I think drivers should improve equally through the series of races (ie expeience points), and prize money for placing for buying bike upgrades/gadgets.

So, prize money can only be spent on bike upgrades, but say every player gets 5 points to upgrade their driver?

I am thinking of changing the rules a bit.

Skill points will allow a dice re-roll instead of a +1. They can also be used to improve your driver. Prize money (Prize points) for bike upgrades

Also, more gadgets. Chainswords, etc.

Tim I actually did a rewrite of the rules a little while ago. A copy should still be in the club next time you stop by.

Heres video of one of our first races before we really flushed out the rules. Id be in but I went from 40k to warmachine during that transition, no bike here, maybe some lightning powered cal vary :)

I do have 5 old school terminators (the pewter ones) Id be willing to trade for a spacemarine or chaos bike they are painted nicely but would need medium bases.

Hey Tim, I have two boxes of Zip Zap guardrails that we can use to lay out the course ( I'll keep the shortcut portion for myself to use during races).
