Does anyone know if gw still has the bike upgrade sprue or whether i need to just buy tac marines for the specials?

Also are bikes any good in 8th? Getting back into the game and loved the idea of bikes before smile.gif

Bikes are awesome support (+2 wds each). the twin bolters + some kind of rerolls = actual damage (+add the specials and a combi and its brutal) Coupled with the additional speed they are a great harassment unit to kill small objective holders or minimum devastators etc.

If you want them to be really good make them Ravenwing or Whitescars....

Trade around for special weapons now you can arm mount them the guy can shoot bolters and special. I think I have a couple of the old metal torso's lying around.

Bikes are also good as Ultrasmurfs since they can fall back and still shoot.
