ive been wanting to purchase some ork bikers for quite some time now but theyre just so bloody expensive! so when i play and i have them in my army i use my dark angels bikers and my ork AoBr choppers taken off their flying bases lol ill some time get time to convert those to bikers one day! in the biker box do you get Nob torsos?
"I dig how in a setting where giant, muscled fungus men ride Mad Max cars and use their own teeth as currency, the concept of little engineering dudes with beards was considered a step too far down the aisle of silliness."
As far as I'm concerned you toss a PK or a big Chappa on a biker and you have a nob biker. As dez said though you get the weapons and nob sized legs/torso in the biker box.If you magnatize the arms you can flip out the weapons and voila... INstant Nobs . I also picked up a few battleforces that some with three. Gave me my trucks(still need to finish painting) and a wack of boys bodies. Some of those I used to make my burna's with the extra weapons I had when I picked made my loota's.
I agree with Dez the bikers are pricey... but that could be said about most of GW's models.
I actually want out of my way to hunt down Nobz's torso from the Boyz and Biker box and used them to make my Nob Bikers... they do look less wimpy than your usual 'I used boy with a pk to make biker nobz' you see around.
aye, i agree. nob bodies on Boyz legs just looks terrible! the Nob you get with a standard 10 man ork boys squad box is shoocking. he does not have the physical presence compared to the real Nobz! just cant understand why they do not provide a fully size Nob in the box
but i am glad that u said u get nob legs and bodies for the conversion! alas, GW arent that tight afterall (sarcasm)
id even be tempted to use fantasy black orks for nobz! get twice as much for the same price! thats what im doing
