The Infernal Assault Bike finally makes an appearance

After months and months of proxying I have finally finished the Infernal Assault Bike conversion. I had passed it off to my buddy to make the roll bar on the front of the sidecar but he just never got around to it. He is a single dad so it's understandable.

I decided that the Soul Reaper mini-dex challenge games would have no proxies so I got the kit back and did it myself. I am quite pleased with the end result! So much so that I may make a second go at having these as a unit choice of their own.

  3. Looks great! The sidecar rider is excellent.

    Don't know if I'd really trust forward firing flamers on a bike, but that's a general CSM bike issue.

  8. Thanks for all the great feedback guys!

    B.smoove, the Road Warrior is where the idea kinda came from. Also the chariot races that the Gladiators of ancient Rome inspired it too.

    Being as the Soul Reapers core are the remnants of the World Eaters 17th Great Company. So it definitely reflects to their Techno-Gladiator background.

    I can imagine a bunch of Techno-Gladiators racing on these beasties fighting to the death.

    Sons and Dee, the flamers are meant to reinforce the assault aspect of the bike. It could be tricky to use effectively in the real world, but this is 40k the height of Sci-Fantasy.

    Munky, the roll bar is made out of plastic rod with lead floral wire fed through it to help it hold the form.

    Hal'jin, the Infernal Assault bike is a Chaos bike squad upgrade in the current version of my Soul Reapers Chaos Marines Fan made codex/supplement.

    Although it has been pointed out that it could used as a counts as Thunderwolf Lord.
