Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hiya! please take time to check my list! heres my initial draft (my friend will be playing imp guard , using sentinels , heavy weapons teams , a leman russ and valkyries)
(Ghazgkull will come in with Snikrot and his kommandos using his Ambush rule , i want to strike fast at the highest threat to my boyz)
inc 2 burnas , Snikrot
20 Shoota Boyz
2 big shootas , nob w/pk+bp
(will ride in BW)
deffrolla,grot riggers,big shoota
21 Slugga Boyz
nob w/ pk+bp
(these will be footslogging as i hope ghaz/snikrot + the bw arriving on the enemy lines early will let them arrive for the second wave relatively intact)
(sits with grotz)
(holds home objective)
This totals to 995pts i think , any suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
not sure but i don't think Ghaz can come in as part of the ambush. someone who knows the rules better than me can maybe confirm but it was my understanding that you can't do that.
Ok so I know that Ghazghkull is required in this list, so I won't touch that. I will give you fair warning though that you will have a more difficult time with 25% of your list tied up into a single character which may not come onto the board for several turns and is already more than overkill vs IGuard.
My biggest issue with the list is that it doesnt have a focus. There is a large chunk coming in from the board edge, a chunk walking, and a chunk driving. Then you have that one shooty unit.
As much as I hate to suggest it, dropping the big mek & 1 slugga boy for a 2nd battlewagon for the slugga boyz to drive around in would benefit the army as a whole.
For the cost of the Big Mek & 1 boy you can pick up a battlewagon w/ reinforced ram & a big shoota.
Those grots tend to be game winners as they usually just stay out of sight and grab an objective. Expect it to be more difficult vs the IGuard though as that valkyrie will be hard for you to destroy and if the Guard player is crafty he'll spend a turn or two to destroy your home-base campers.
Thanks alot for the cc Gorfang it's much appreciated , I think I may have to resign myself to dropping ghaz from the list to make it more competitive and focus it. It's so difficult writing that first list! Hehe
for 2k+ lists though that Snikrot & Ghazghkull combination will tear entire armies apart without breaking the backbone of the remainder of your list. In fact, I'm 100% stealing your idea next game I go play (hopefully with someone I know rather than pummeling a stranger).
take out ghazgull and use a normal warboss with pk and twin linked shoota with boss pole. and you can include another 20 slugga boyz
So after some checking and double checking I've found out that it's not possible to do the Snikrot & IC combination. Check the post in the Ork parent forum for the associated rulebook citations.
Would have been awesome though...
