I'm in a 1750 tourney in April and need to be able to take on all comers. I do know that one army will be a nidzilla. The guy is one of the best players in the area and his army will be a dakka flyrant, a dakka walking tyrant with guard, three elite fexes (probably pie plate fexes), 2 sniper fexes, 2 zoens, a couple of small gaunt with WON and the rest will be in outflanking stealers. It is one tough army that will shoot you to pieces and the stealers will chew up whatever is left.
So, I need to be ready for this army. Here is what I've been thinking of taking:
Two Bikerboss w/PK, squig, cybork, bosspole - 310
Two 6 man nob biker mobs plus painboy, 3 PK, bosspole, waaagh Banner, 2 skorcha kombi. - 970
13 kommandos plus Snikrot, 2 burnas - 245
20 shoota boys, nob w pk, 2 big shoota
13 grots plus runtherder.
points - 1750, scoring - 4, KP - 7 Models - 65
I have all the models except the second nob biker mob. But, this seems a little lite on models for an ork army. I also need to be ready for other armies, but I do expect the nid army to be the one to beat.
Any ideas will be greatly appreciated and accepted with humility.
you definately need more bodies in that list, and you have waaaay to many points invested in those nobs you also dont have enough units that can hold objectives, and use some points to put some of thos shoota boys in a battlewagon
take a look at my list although its 2000 points it could easily be made into a 1750 (i could do it if you want)
total - 120
waagh banner -
total 172 total of 4 is 682
Ok, im going to have 4 of these squads all exactly the same except 1 squad has 11 boys instead of 12 because the mek is going to ride with them
20 shoota boyz
2 big shootas
total - 300
army total - 1998

to make it 1750 just take out the deffkoptas and loobas, that gives you a nice 1740 (did it in my head, not ecact, but i know its not over 1750) Then you have a very deadly Orks list

Okay, lets look at this individualy.
The mek with KFF. There is a debate going on out there wether or not he can have a burna when he has a KFF. With that aside, I've used him without the burna in the past with a slogging army and he was worth the points.
Bikerboss and nobs. So, you would drop one of the PK nobs to fit into the list. I can see that but why not drop one of the BC nobs? Is it just a point question?
Lootas, well, I've used them alot in the past and they have always been a good unit. However, more and more, I find them to do less and less. In fact, most opponents that I play tend to ignore them unless there is nothing else to shoot at. Not sure I want to table just one and that small. For me, the points would be better spent on Kommandos. I've had very good results with them with Snikrot.
Now the truck boyz. With all those S8 pie plates being thrown around, I'm a little worried with open-topped AV10. That would force me to keep them close and within the KFF area. problem with that is it will make a perfect set-up for all the pie plates. Now, what if we drop the four truck mobs and go with two 20 boy mobs in battlewagons? I haven't looked at the points, I'm just nervious about the AV10. That would give me three mobs in battlewagons.
As for the Lobbas and deffkopters, I'll drop those to get to the 1750 point level.
So, let's recap to see where we are:
Bikerboss with 6 nob bikers and painboy.
Mek w/KFF and possibly a burna
3 mobs of boys in battlewagons
I know that doesn't match exactly your list, so let's discuss. Hopefully, You can help me understand your thinking. I've got all the minis so that is not a problem. I will have to build the battlewagons though. My trucks are the old edition, so I'll probably have to replace them as well. No big deal.
I want this army to be rock hard without being cheesy. Are we getting close?
Thanks for the help...
yea were getting somewhere, hmm i like the shoota boyz in the battlewagon, and u can even put them close together so all 3 wagons get the benefit from the kff, in an objective game though i like to have all my troop slots filled so i have more units that can hold objectives. yea and drop the lootas and take the kommandos
