These look great! Coming in 2019 according to Bleeding Cool.





Although there are various bikers out there, I don't know any in GW quality plastic and sculpting quality. Great fodder for conversions at the least.

I find it humorous that the sniper is almost exactly like the Enforcer sniper on a mono-wheel that Mantic did a while ago.

They all look great though!

Will definitely work these into my guard, somehow. I find it interesting that there are three different bike fronts based of the headlights and front forks.

The best part is that these don't have obvious GSC anatomy, so they will work great as-is for post-apocalyptic bikers, or with very minor conversions/head swaps, Rough Riders.

Same pics.

Community previewed all the minis on the white background after those cabinet photos were doing the rounds.

Either way, I want these.

Two bikers in a box isn’t enough though.
I’d hope boxes of five maybe?

More likely to be boxes of three, I would think. That's always been the standard for GW bikes - single bikes, and 'squadron' boxes of three.

Let's hit this pessimistically and then we'll feel good if they're packaged/priced more nicely.

2 bikers for $35 USD.
Sniper bike by his lonesome for, say, $20 USD.
Quad Bike for $25 USD.

GSC is my main army and they get slaughtered.
Hopefully, they'll price these things too crazy so I won't buy them plus a new codex that will just allow me to continue losing games

Fairly sure the original rumours said that the sniper was buildable from the regular sprue.

And if so would make the 3 in a box fit a bit better with the pictures (as is being discussed elsewhere; the community picture is normally box size too?)

Doesn't the picture show 5 bikes plus 1 quad? I admit I may be overlooking the 6th bike that would make 3 bike squadron seem logical.

Well, it is bleeding fool. I thought they went under years ago.

Anyway, here's the obligatory Warhammer Community article from November:

I imagine there's only so many "firing while seated on a motorbike" poses you can do. Unless the Mantic one was previewed over a year ago, it's unlikely there's any connection other than coincidence.

More like 5 years, but I agree, how else would you sit and fire?

Still trying to think of some house rules for these for Necromunda. Orlock are basically a biker gang already and the idea of zooming around the underhive does have it's appeal.

I just mean I’m used to seeing Mantic making GW-esque stuff and this was a bit of a reversal in my mind, not so much a pose critique.

The ash wastes were an area they talked about developing in the early days of The new Necromunda. They also talked of developing the eye of Selune too if a remember the name correctly. However it seems like pipe dreams at this point.

Something tells me those wouldn't make ideal wargaming units. Afterall, it is highly likely that female GSC members would spend the vast, vast majority of their time popping out babies and thus would not be fit for battles

Once the rebellion starts it's going to be do or die so no time to wait for babies to grow up

(and even in the early stages where they're still sneaking about the lack of safety systems in so much imperial stuff there are probably a fair few sterile women who end up in the cult who could play the part of troops)
