Hey,
Just wanted to find out how people are doing when using White Scars and Bike Squads.
I'm just trying to make sure I do it right so I don't get called on for cheating or anything next time I do a tournament.

What's have you found best in using Bike Squads and Attack Bike Squads?
Can you still get the Bike Squads as Troops if you don't take a Captain on a bike but go with a Chaplain or Librarian on a bike?
What special abilties are the main focus for White Scar armies now?

In order to get bike squads as troops you must have either Khan on Moondrakken or a captain on a bike. The only special abilities are the ability to take bike squads (only bike squads not attack bikes or scout bikes as troops) and if Khan is taken he gives every unit with combat tactics the ability to outflank. He gives the unit he is attached to furious charge and hit and run. Check out the white scars blog for more info.

Thanks Dude.
I had no idea how much the White Scars are limited now. Oh well, need to make changes to the army then.

What army list do you use for your White Scars? (1500, 1850,2000, Apocolypse)

I don't play apocalypse I usually use Khan and a command squad. I think my last AWC tourney I won overall with the bikes. I ran Khan, command squad with all the trimmings, Libby on a bike with avenger and null zone 1 full bike squad with 2 melta, mm attack bike pf, 2 five man bike squads with multi melta attack bike one with plasma and combi plasma or with melta and combi melta, tact squad in razorback 2 typhoons 3 heavy bolter attack bikes and a predator.

Cool!
I was reading on the forum about the different formats to use. Before the rules changed I was using 7-8 man Bike Squads with a Attack Bike with Multi-Melta. Now, i've widdled my squads down, though I still use the max amount of guys and a Attack Bike.
My Army is acutally one of the Succession/2nd founding chapters like the Storm Lords. It's an actual chapter called The Destroyers. I have my own color scheme and chapter symbols because the chapter doesn't actually have one listed under GW's fluff or books. I'm working on combining my army with a White Scars for a Apocalypse size army. I'll post the list soon. The army is assembled and primed but the White Scar half still has to be painted. I was going to send them out to Blue Table Painting cause they did a AWESOME job on a Whrilwind I sent in. I just have to save money now for it. https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/YF_5oF1vKwNfaqm54QIJwtMTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?feat=directlink

When I post up the list I would appreciate any suggestions.
