    Massive Ork Army...to be completed


    This is what I plan to have, because our group of friends do massive scale battles, but no the super heavy tanks or Titans involved in Apocylypse. Im a complete newby really, only a game and a half under my belt with my small army so far. This is what I plan to have. Don't be too brutal.

    My strategy..or what I could think of was get my Fast Attack options up to toy with them and distract. The Battlewagons with my Nobz and HQ's would rush forward with the fast attack, While 180 Ork Boys haul ass forward to the fray.

    If you are new, you might want to check out the "you're better off with grots" guide here http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...ameisgrax.html

    It has some tips on how to get optimal performance out of things like deffkoptas, deff dreads vs. killa kans and the like.

    Looks like a good list to me though.

    THis list has one glaring problem- a serious lack of powerklaws. Those nobz should have at least a couple, and each nob in the boyz unit must have one. This will make your army much more effective. Waaagh!

    Power Klaws? No problem, I'll just decrease Warbikers down a few...What do you think about swapping out Kommandos for Tankbustas...with Rokkit Hammers?

    ok... first off you need to drop a nob unit or a unit of boyz as you have 7 troop choices at the mo...

    your force is a hord army but it will get unstuck against a tank heavy force and because you seem to be trying to take every unit you can you also lack any clear advantage other than numbers..

    HQ
    Warboss

    - Power Klaw
    Hulk
    He needs some protection HA or cybork plus you might want to think about giving him a combi burna as they can make a war boss very painful up close.
    Elites
    (2) 5 Nobz
    - 10 Big Choppas
    - Waaagh! Banner

    As i have already said you need to drop one of your troop choices or a unit of nobs. 5 is a little small for a unit of nobz, i use 6 or 7 and you need a painboy, HA or cybork, boss poll and powerklaw. if you dont have these your nobs wont last long and wont be cost effective.
    + 2 Battle Wagons as Dedicated Transports
    nothing wrong here, they are a good transport for them bit if you want to save points trukks also do a good job
    10 Kommandos
    - 2 Big Shootas

    not bad but most people give them burnas to give them more killing power < you wont need the range of big shooters!> and if you dont use sniknot a nob with power klaw is a must.
    15 Lootas
    - 2 Meks Upgrade with Kustom-Mega Blasters

    most people use the big meks with big shooters so you can move and shootat range, the KMB's are a bit of a wast as most of your targets will be more than 24" away < i hope so anyway!>

    Troops
    30 Boyz
    30 Boyz
    30 Boyz
    30 Boyz
    30 Boyz
    30 Boyz
    +6 Nobz with Bosspoles
    as i said you have 7 troop choices so you need to lose one, all your boyz also need a nob with power klaw to make them more effective maybe also a boss poll.
    Fast Attack
    (2) 9 Warbikers

    + 18 Big Choppas

    you cant give all your bikers big choppers and 2 units of 9 seem to be a bit extreem. maybe drop a few so your units number 6 or 7.
    3 Deffkoptas
    -3 Twin Linked Rocket Launchers

    deffkoptas work best on their own or in a group of 5 < as has been said look at mynameisgrax's writings on this>


    Heavy Support
    Deff Dread
    - Skorcha
    - Dreadnaught Close Combat Weapon

    some people like them but im not much of a fan, still no real issue
    3 Lobbas
    3 Kannons

    the kannons are fine, cheap and they have BS 3... not sure what you have planned with the lobbas. not many people take them as the orks have better firepower in other units.. like kannons


    well i hope you can find somethings i have said of use and that you can rejig your list a bit
    GOOD LUCK!

    ....The Hulk is a custom Warboss I made that has the equivalent of Mega Armour. So yeah, a 2+ Save.
    ..... After dropping the Artillery Guns, I exchanged the points in for HA on the Nobz and Bosspoles





    ....About my troop choices? I have 6, the nobz part is just the upgrade for the squads.


    ...Dropped the Deffkoptas because I'm just going to convert them to bikers

    ok.. looks a bit better now..

    i said you had more than 6 troop choices because i though the (2) next to your nobs ment you had 2 units of them..

    i know i said you needed power klaws.. but 5 is maybe a few too many.. make it 3 or 4 at the most in a unit of 10 nobs... or else the unit will cost way too much..

    you still have big choppers on the bikes... and only a nob on a bike can have that upgrade.
