  • Hi V, very nice stuff you've been doing, but I must cut the chase, when is the long awaited Jetbike page coming, this is getting more tensing than the wait for the inquisitor Lord movie.

    Just a question, do you think the White Scars, Dark Angels and Salamanders still retain the STC for the Jetbike.


    Thanks

    • V, if you could take a look at the new Jetbike page and make any improvements, it would be most welcome.

    • Should there be some information on Necron Tomb Blades? I think they are jetbikes too.

    • my thanks to Algrim for ending the wait for the Jetbike page, but do any of you guys think that any of the Chapters (eg - iron Hands, Salamanders, Blood Angels) could still be able to manufacture the Jetbike (not in very large numbers of course, more of hobby work, like a guy in his spare time building a motor bike from scratch over years). because some of the Ancient armours and weapons are returning to service in these chapters, such as the Storm Bird and Storm Eagle, Tartarus Terminator Armour (why else would a young [debatable] Chapter such as the Minotaurs have sets of their armour, even if they are friendly with Inquisition), and limited procuduction of older armour designs on Kiavhar, the Raven Guards forge World.

      only asking, and would be grateful for a response.

    • I'm reasonably sure that all Jetbike STCs have been long lost. Techmarines don't even want to try fixing current ones in case they break it. All of the ancient armours and weapons may be just newly released from GW/FW and in fluff were probably "always there". Maybe some can still be produced, most are irreplaceble. At least, that is what I think.

    • its a pity though, all the old armours and weapons worked better, and looked better than the modern (40k) stuff.

      Thanks for responding

    • Montonius: I shall work on adding any additional information to the new Jetbike page, which I'm assuming is the Imperial Jetbike page with additional information on other Jetbikes (Eldar) correct?

      Fire Drake 96: The only canon Jetbikes being used in the 41st Millennium is the single one used by the Ravenwing, although I'm sure that the White Scars probably have several, but other than the Ravenwing there are no other known canon Jetbikes in use. As for the STC for Jetbikes, I can almost guarantee it's gone, and any Jetbikes still in existence are treated like holy relics and only used for show or in dire situations.

      Shas'o'Kais: The Tomb Blades are actually spacecraft, but the Necrons use them for fast attack ground units. The Eldar and Dark Eldar Jetbikes are mentioned on the Jetbike page because they are actually called Jetbikes. Also, according to the story Feat of Iron from the Horus Heresy Novel The Primarchs, the Iron Hands Legion did not use Jetbikes, Bikes, or Land Speeders.

      Algrim: Thanks for helping out!

    • You are correct sir! Algrim essentially made it a portal page for Jetbikes. I would ave made it just for Imperial Jetbikes per our oiginal structure, but now that he did the work, I'm happy to leave it as is. Of course the Jetbike (Eldar) page also needs your attention, V, but that can wait til you tackle the Eldar, if you want. I don't want to unnecessarily slow down your current progression on the Space Marines.

    • Alrighty, I'll do the Eldar Jetbike and Reaver pages when I do their respective factions later, and as for the Space Marines my next page is going to be the Drop Pod page, after that I'll work on the Jetbike page and add any additional information I can find. (As I've already got all the information, sources, and pictures for the Drop Pod ready.)

    • Sounds good. Don't do the Reaver page, create a separate page for a Reaver Jetbike, if there is even enough information for that. I believe the Reavers have already been fully dealt with as a group, but you are certainly welcome to create a Reaver Jetbike page.

    • Ok, I wasn't planning on doing an actual Reavers page, I leave that stuff to you and Algrim, which reminds me: The only Imperial Guard vehicle page that needs done is that of the Rough Riders, and I think that mutant horses and dirtbikes are more of a section on a page rather than a page themselves.

    • I agree, but you can feel free to create the Rough Riders page and we can add to it. Your pages are fantastic, and I would not mind seeing you do your usual comprehensive job. If not, as you alreayd have plenty on your plate, I'll simply assign it to Algrim as another of our IG regiment jobs, which has been one of his areas. I've just got him on a ton of other stuff at the moment.

    • Okay, that's fine, I'll leave to Algrim as I feel much more comfortable doing vehicle pages, but he can do whenever he has more time.

    • Sounds good.
