Nob bikers are still ridiculously good.

Played in my 2nd tournament of the month.

Modified my list slightly, dropping 2 lootas for a 2nd pk and kombi-skorcha in the nobs. Final list was:

HQ: Warboss, pk, squig, cybork, bike
HQ: Mek, KFF, burna, cybork

Troop: 5 nob bikers, 2xpk, 1x kombi-skorcha, painboy, wagh! banner, big choppa, bosspole, grot orderly, wound allocated.
Troop: 30 Shootas, 3x rokkit, nob w/PK&BP
Troop: 30 Shootas, 3x rokkit, nob w/PK&BP

Elite: 9 lootas
Elite: 9 lootas

Heavy: 3x Lobba, 3x ammo runts, 2x extra crew (had 6pts left over).

I wasn't quite happy about not having a screening unit, but I came to the conclusion I would use 1 unit of shootas to screen the 2nd if worse came to worse.

However I completely, utterly wrecked face getting 48 out of a possible 51 points, with 2nd place having 37.

First game vs Mech IG. Dawn of war, I had my nobs just outside meltagun range of stuff coming on the edge. I then got a 2nd turn multi-assault and proceded to wreck half his army with just the nobs. Won on objectives as one of the boys were basically untouched. I lost 1 nob, and 27 models out of 1 boy squad.

Second game vs CSM. The nobs killed off 2 demon princes and 5 terminators before finally falling themselves. It was the only unit I lost the whole game. All he had left was a blastmaster and 2 oblits. Won on killpoints 7-1.

Third game vs Mechdar. I got first turn, lootas brought down 2 tanks before they even got to move. After that it was all downhill. He called it at the middle of 5, as all he had was an immobilized falcon, a stunned waveserpent and 4 pinned firedragons. I had lost only my lobbas and 1 unit of lootas. Won on objectives.

The nob bikers were completely over the top the entire day, totally obliterating everything they touched and refusing to die until it was far too late. The lobbas were again, completely ace. First game wiping out 2 infantry units. 2nd game putting a crapton of wounds on thousand sons, eventually killing 7 out of 9. Third game wiped out a unit of Dire Avengers and pinning firedragons.
