7 Jetbikes ... 6 Riders

While getting the pieces together to finish this batch of work (7 jetbikes, 10 guardians + platform, 8 swooping hawks) I realize that I am missing a rider for one of the jetbikes.  In addition, one of the jetbikes is missing its flagpole bit off the back.  I search the Big Box but cannot find either.  What to do... what to do...

The answer, of course, is to sacrifice a guardian for his legs / left arm and a warlock for the upper half of his body.  A little milliput here and there, and we have a warlock on jetbike nicely underway.  Plus he'll have a singing spear, so that will add a bit of threat range to him.  S9 against vehicles is pretty scary.  Unlike the rest of the jetbikes in the unit, this fellow's cowling will have a facsimile of the bone armor pattern.  The similar coloration should tie them together nicely.  I've converted two of the jetbikes to have shuriken cannons, so this will make a nice 6 model guardian jetbike unit with an attached warlock on jetbike.

Hmmm.... I wonder how I would do a Farseer on jetbike now.....
