Going to an upcoming 1850 WYSIWYG RTT and thought I'd post my list for people to pick apart, comment on, and check my math. Thanks in advance for the help!
-Shokk Attack Gun
-2 Big Choppas
-3 Power Klaws
-4 Big Choppas
-3 Power Klaws
-8 'Eavy Armour
30 Shoota Boyz
-2 Rokkit Launchas
11 Slugga Boyz
11 Slugga Boyz
-4 Twin-Linked Rokkit Launchas
I can make one of those nob squads troops, but I'm not 100% on which one I want to. The bikers are generally better, more durable, have turbo-boost, and were easily my first candidate for the troops choice but here's the problem. I don't have a biker boss so the nob bikers will be LD7. Furthermore, for all the reasons I listed above those nob bikers will likely draw the lion's share of the firepower by my opponent. As such, I considered making the nobz in the trukk my troops choice for the sole reason that it will make my opponent have to make a tough choice. "Do I throw the house at those nob bikers who will eat my face, or do I split my forces to deal with the nobz that are troops?"
Also, I know the rokkit kombi-weapon is garbage but I didn't have another skorcha kombi-weapon and the tournament is WYSIWYG. I went with the rokkit for the sole purpose of having different wargear on all of my nobz for wound allocation. Most people don't like to use big choppas but for so cheap an upgrade the +2 str is too good to pass up, especially when I find daemon princes and the like running after my nobz in hopes to protect their troops. Also, the nobz that don't have pks need to still pull their weight and the bc all but guarantees that any hits they get will become wounds. I, just as much as every other ork player, wish they were a power weapon even at decreased strength, but until such a blessing happens I'll be complacent with my +2 str giving me a whopping S7 on the charge.
Finally, I can't decide on those Deffkoptas. I don't have the cheaper Warbuggies to use, but still wanted rokkits to be flying around. Plus, I figured the ability to outflank might prove very useful in dealing with backline tanks, particularly against any IG I may come across. I considered dropping one Deffkopta for other goodies here and there and maybe buffing my Trukk boyz up to the full 12, but couldn't decide.
Strategy wise my general gameplan is to send the trukk boyz and nob bikers first. The trukk full of nobz will duck behind cover first turn and then spring out afterwards as a 2nd wave along with the 30 shootas marching across. The gretchin will act as a meat shield for my SAG and sit on the objective furthest away. The deffkoptas will outflank and cause havoc in the backline.
Any comments or concerns? Again, keep in mind that this tournament is WYSIWYG so I can't significantly change my list but to give an idea I do have a battlewagon I considered using (perhaps as a transport for the shootas knocking them down to 20 ). A friend of mine has 3 lobbas I considered using, but wasn't able to fit them into my list. Also, though I don't have Snikrot I do have 10 Kommandos (included in that is a nob w/ pk, and 2 burnas) and considered using them as well.
