Welcome to Librarium Online!
There's this tourney next week where you buy a battle force, then assemble an army from it with no HQ requirements or any other requirements I believe. The rules will be 5th and the only armies allowed are those that have actual battle force boxes.
245 - 3 Biker Nobs with Painboy, 2 PKs, 2 Combi Scorchas, Waaagh! Banner, Bosspole
180 - 10 'Ard Boys in Trukk w/ Red Paint, Nob w/PK, Bosspole
75 - 10 Shootas, Nob w/Bosspole
Strategy - Nobs and Trukk each take a flank with the shootas in the middle. Nobs stay hidden from LOS as much as possible while the trukk speeds down and unloads his passengers as close as he can get to the enemy. Shootas shoot what they can or run to cover.
Alternate Strategy - Nobs side by side with trukk to stay hidden from LOS until Nobs are delivered safely or the trukk has an opportunity to unload his passengers. Shootas stay the same, shoot or run to hide.
Anyone have any suggestions? Would an Ork Battle Force have a good chance against the other boxes? I think the winner of the tourney is determined by the amount of kill points earned.
I love the tournament theme. It's an interesting one.
I think the nob bikers are too small to warrant their cost, and 'ard boyz generally aren't worth their points, but you admittedly don't have many options.
8 Nobz w/2 powerklaws, painboy, cybork, waugghh banner, bosspole, trukk (335)
3 warbikes (75)
12 Shoota boyz w/nob, bosspole (87)
Your idea works too, I just think 8 regular nobz will last longer than 3 biker nobz. Still, decide for yourself, and go for it.
Grax is right. Great thing about this tourney though is since you have a low point value most armies will have trouble handling a bigger unit of nobs which means you could probably run the table. Hard to tell though since I'm not well versed in the codex of many armies. Should be a fun tourney though tell us how it goes.
"Orks have to be followers of Nurgle! They're green, smell bad, and just want to spread the fun!"
I would have to check to see if I could use nobs instead of boys, but as far as I know you can only use what's in the box, and since there's a nob box I don't think you can take nobs since it's not in the battle force.
If I'm able to use that list I just might.
Yay double post...
