WOT YOU LOT FINK?!
Units I'm questioning keeping or dropping: Stormboys, Deffkoptas.
It looks pretty good, the only thing I would change is the Stormboyz. They really don't fit with the list, and because they don't have the armor of the Trukks or the toughness and cover of the Bikes, they will get shot down hard and fast, even with Zagstruk. They don't really fit will with the list.
Since you have an HQ slot open, have you considered taking a Big Mek with a KFF to protect those Trukks on the advance? That 4+ will save them time and time again, and your Boyz will get to their destination much more often.
I would replace those Wrekking Balls with Reinforced Rams. The help with the terrain checks will serve you much better than having one hit on something. If you are that close to a vehicle, just use the Power Klaw inside to get four times those hits. Boarding Planks would work better against vehicles anyway. I haven't found Wrekkin' Balls all that useful.
Everything has to have red paint, even the wagon
I was under the impression though, that burnas couldn't take a trukk as a transport, leaving the wagon as their only option (same point cost mind you). and a boomgun removes its transport capacity.
good tip on the wrecking balls, I'll model on some ramps
KFF bik mek was definately a consideration. I may work around things to get him in, maybe cut deffcoptas.
I know the stormboys will get shot up, but I'l going to (or attempt to) use the vulcha boy deep strike. If they frequently under-perform, I'll cut them for something else.
Even with Zagstruk, without any other type of something for them, they will underperform and die before they are useful. They are sucking up a TON of points for performing essentially the same role as your Deffkoptas are.
With the points from them you could give the Nobs Cybork and a Waaagh! Banner easily, and most likely afford a Big Mek with a Kustom Force Field, and that would serve your army leages better than those Stormboys are.
Stormboys are nice, but you only really need them for one role, and they don't really fit with Speed Freaks, as they don't have the survivability of Trukks or bikes.
