I don't know if I'm the only one who this is bugging, but I find it really annoying that the blades on the Reaver Jetbikes are on the wrong sides... I mean, they are supposed to cut their enemies apart whil flying past them, but as it is now, they would 'only' kill them by an insanely powerful blunt trauma. What purpose do the blades on the Jetbikes have? (And the keel blade on the Raider/Ravager for that matter.)

Has anyone converted them in order to be 'realistic' (haha) by for example turning the three blades by 180°? Do they continue looking aerodynamic that way?

Actually they ARE (ok, not at all Razz) made to cut through stuff

They are curved in that way so if something get hit by end it gets pulled on blade.
I do agree GW kinda... dropped the ball with them tho. Parts that should be sharp are blunt.

I too noticed that the blades are blunt on the side that should be cutting... maybe if they drove in reverse.

Maybe they do, it would be impressive if you could go in reverse at super sonic speed and cut off some dudes head.

Going fast enough, even a 2X4 will cut through a tree.

It doesn't bother me any. I think they still look cool.

they are recurve blades like a sickle, used to pull a target onto the sharpened edge.

Except there is no sharp edge Razz

I guess we could careful file them with fine sandpaper...

This. To be honest, I didn't even notice that the cutting edge was in the "wrong" spot.
