Painboy Warbiker
« on: October 18, 2013, 10:56:16 PM »
This should probably be in the rules forum, but I wanted to check here as I gunning on getting in on the Orktober Kitbashathon and wanted to make my conversion rule legal.

Can a nob unit that is upgraded with warbikes have a painboy that is also on a warbike. The FAQ states that he cannot take the wargear listed as "Any Nob may..." but the first entry states the entire mob may be upgraded to nob bikers.

It's a long shot as I have not seen that played anywhere and it will most likely be a moot point by next year.

yes it's legal, and highly recommended :)

You can't give him a Power Klaw, for example, as you say, but the whole squad can be upgraded to bikers.

What is less clear is whether the Painboy can give himself a cybork body ... we play that he can't, but it doesn't seem so clear to me.

Anyway, good luck with the conversion, would love to see it. Here's mine:

Interested Baron....  I've always given my painboy a cybork body...  It just seems silly for everyone but himself to have one...

As for the painboy, he is really a good investment for a unit of nobz...  With cybork bodies and FNP, plus your cover save...  You are always garunteed a save of some sort.  Normally you are garunteed two saves, so these guys are invaluable!

Yes you can have a pain boy on a bike, and yes you can give the pain boy cybork but not specialist weapons.
Here are mine, you can see the pain boy stands out from the others (nowhere does it say how big or small an 'urty syringe is)

Yes, the others are carrying big choppas stolen from the ogres kit, and a PK stolen from some space marine kit. Sorry, they may appear to be older models, but I have been playing them since the GW world wide Armageddon campaign (a few years ago).

Thanks for the inspiration. I've posted my first nob biker on the kitbash contest and the painboy is definitely next. I'm going to try for a cybork body using an old metal painboy.

@Baron Wasteland: I love the medpack barrel on the back of the bike. I think I'm going to try and make some sort of oxygen/nitrous tank similar. Perhaps a magnetized grot orderly as well.

@Skeetergod: I'm converting the same old school bikes myself. That white lab coat is hilarious. I was thinking of doing a single powerklaw with three big choppas and a painboy.
