After looking at the thread on the unit that can or cannot do 25 attacks I got to thinking about what would be the deadliest unit in our army. Be it statistically, on paper or from personal experience lets figure out which units pack the most punch.
Point for point? Spear chukkas. Otherwise, a 7 wide unit of savage orc big uns with the banner of butchery can churn out a massive 36 attacks at s5 on the turn it charges. Thats nasty, and also without characters.
EDIT: I meant boar boy big uns. Its still nasty though.

I guess some ground rules would help.
No characters, and points dont particularly matter, just a realistic unit i suppose. And i was unaware that savage orcs were that amazing, might need to make some adjustments to the list I was making up.
Mind you, I don't think that's ever going to be a relevant question - The survivability of a unit, and it's ability to hit and wound is important - I am very fond of black orcs in that respect.
Heavy armour, twin choppas, (But It's worth remembering their flexibility vs high T monsters with great choppas with armed to da teef) high WS, high T - and you can give them a magic banner as a matter of course.
Using mathhammer orc bigun's give out more whack per point. but IMO they're not as good due to their save, and LD (and other orcs cause them to panic whick black orcs ignore). They also don't have animosity (but can still get the magical waaghh! and standard waagh!)
And they're cool looking. (and you get loads of spare weapons to swap with the standard boyz for variety.)

Fanatics and squig hoppers all the way
I like the Tactical Prowess of the Black Orcs, they can handle a wide varity of things and can take more punishment(for Greenskin standards) than the rest. Point for Point i've always liked the standard Boy, i have 3 units of Boyz, the Big Un one with another rank and Extra Choppas. but a standard troop with 4 T, a Choppa(extra S on that first turn!) and a shield for 6 points? awsome imo. Choppa is a awsome Hand Weapon
x24 Savage Orc big uns with additional choppas and banner of butchery. I have them 6 wide. I play against alot of undead, these guys just charge straight in and dish out 25 str5 attacks.
personaly i love fanatics
1. they pack a big punch
2. they take cair of anything to power full for my goblins to handle
3. their modles look cool
killed a great unlcean one in one hit with thump with clup from a gaint... id have to say gaints pown
What do you call a lasgun with a lazer scope?
