Warbikers Finally Finished

At Adepticon 2012, I decided I wanted a Biker army.  I spent a great deal of money on 48 bikes and a Forge World biker boss.  I was extremely excited about this army and it was quite a success on the battlefield.  Of course, that is, until the new Chaos Space Marines codex came out and the horrible Torrent in that army made my list completely un-fun to play.

I did manage to finish up one squad, but the list, then, languished for some time.

I decided to add these as part of the Independent Characters Hobby Progress Challenge just to get them done.  They're really cool, just terrible against any flamer with AP4 or better.  Having said that, I'm glad I did them.

Please excuse the slightly glossy clear coat.  I ran out of Testors and had to make do with Krylon flat spray for the time being.

This first squad are all old style bikers. They're really fun.  There are some parts from more modern models where I was missing stuff.

This is a more modern squad. I'm differentiating it from the unit of modern bikes I'd already painted by having the front fenders on these and painting the fenders red.

Here are all the newly-painted bikes in one shot.

Here is an old shot of my Biker Boss...

Here are all of my bikes and buggies.  They are a part of a larger sub-army "Yeller is Da New Red" which I will post at a later date when I finish my last Battlewagon.

Sorry it's been so long since an update! I shall endeavour to paint more Orks, but I've been busy! I have a new dog and he's been great for my wife and me in the exersise department.  I've also been doing a lot of commissions to buy my Sisters of Battle army. I'll try to make a post of all the stuff I've been painting for other people.

Until next time, thanks for looking.
