Welcome to Librarium Online!
in liu of the new ork miniatures i decided to make a small 1000pt list just for friendly games up at my local GW, i would like to eventually expand but atm i'm just aiming for 1000pts, only real problem is i don't know what I should spend the last 80pts on, heres what i have so far;
Warboss on bike
8 nob bikers
9 Lootas 135
if my math is right i still have 80pts left, possible ideas are a trukk for the lootas but with their range i'm not sure i need it, also even with the lootas and the 3 pk's in the nob biker mob (including the warboss PK) i still think i may be a little light on on the anti-tank. I have the black reach box, one additional box of boyz (already shootas) and a box of lootas so far but don't mind buying something else if anyone feels i need it. Any suggestions/feedback woul be greatly appreciated.
it has also come to my attention that if i added just a single extra boy to each mob they become fearless and that cybork or eavy armor may be a viable option for the nob bikers, may not need the big shoota in the slugga squad too as they will be assaulting
i guess with the aforementioned changes the list is fine?, any feedback would be awesome
I think there is a few things I would do differently, granted I have no play experience with Bikers...
Actually your above army is already 1025 points! Those Bikers are really expensive!
A powerful unit, but it's 61% of your army value! That will be a really serious unit that can take a lot of beating, but honestly I think you could trim it down without losing to much power, thus gaining you a lot more to spend elsewhere. But, if you have a painboy I'd go ahead and spend the points to give them cybork bodies. This brings me to my next point...
I say get rid of 2 Biker Nobz and maybe one power klaw if the warboss is riding with them. That would free up 90-115 points to spend on another troop choice or maybe some fast attack units.
Max out the Trukk Boyz. The more Orks the better! You need 12 Boyz in every trukk to gain the most from your Close Combat attacks and as you noted, to gain fearlessness. This will only cost you 24 points. Since they are in a trukk you MIGHT benefit from making one unit 'ard boyz, but honestly I'd just get more Orks.
Oh, I'd also make the other unit in a trukk Slugga Boyz if you intend to use it for fast assaults and then get another unit of Shoota Boyz. So in the spirit of your Biker Nob army, I try something like this:
5 Nob Bikers
12 Slugga Boyz
12 Slugga Boyz
994 Points Total
You have enough for another Boy but no where to put him...That's never happened to me before! Unfortunately I couldn't fit a unit of shoota Boyz in like thought. So your army has a fast and heavy hitting Biker squad with PKs for Close Combat heavy anti-tank or infantry, Lootas for long range light anti-armor or heavy anti-infantry. Rokkit Buggies for medium range medium to heavy anti-tank, and two trukks worth of Boyz for assaulting and getting to objectives fast!
thanks heaps for the re-worked list, lol, guess my math was fail
