Scout Bikers are a vital asset for Space Marine forces, providing fast and agile reconnaissance and disruption capabilities. While the enemy is focused on the main attack, the Scout Bikers can exploit weaknesses in their lines, calling down precision orbital bombardments and deploying reserve units to exploit these gaps.
To field a squad of Scout Bikers, the most cost-effective option is the Scout Bike Squad box. This kit includes three multi-part plastic Space Marine Scout Bikes that can be assembled with either twin-linked boltguns or an Astartes grenade launcher. The box also includes a range of additional parts, allowing you to customize your Scout Bikers with weapons such as bolt pistols, shotguns, and combat knives for added detailing. Furthermore, the kit comes with a Space Marine Transfer Sheet to add additional insignia and markings to your models.

Using the Base brush, apply two thin coats of Leadbelcher to the armor, wheels, and engines of the bikes. Allow to dry completely between coats.
- Step 4: Paint the details
Using the Fine Detail brush, paint the details of the bikes with Mephiston Red, Averland Sunset, and Ulthuan Grey as desired. You can use the transfer sheet provided to add additional details like chapter symbols and squad markings.

- Step 6: Highlight the miniatures
Using the Dry brush, apply a light drybrush of Ulthuan Grey to the edges of the armor, wheels, and engines. This will give them a worn and weathered look.
- Step 7: Finish the miniatures
Apply a thin coat of Nuln Oil to the wheels and engines of the bikes to create a dirty and oily effect. Allow to dry completely.
