Ive never made a ork list before so don't be too harsh, Im not exactly sure what works well but this is what I have come up with.
6x Nobz -430
3x Big choppas
6x Cybork bodys
5x Kombi skorcha
20 ork boyz -240
Ard boyz upgrade
Battle wagon - 170
red paint job
4x Big shootas
also Im not sure about what happens with the painboy, can he take weapons as well or not?
Right for orks you want loads of 'em. 27 aint gonna go far!
first off: painboy only gets a sluuga, cybork body and a 'urty syringe (poison weapon).
2nd: battle wagon isn't good when theres only 1 it will be a huge target.Drop it and drop the 'ard boys upgrade (it's not worth it trust me I'm an ork veteran at my store) then upgrade that boy squad to 30 mob with 3 big shootas/2 big shootas and a rokkit launcha.
put the boss and nobs on foot and give 'em a trukk (much better tactic) then with any point left over get another squad of 30 boys. Heres my remake of your list:HQWarboss: (work out cost)
kombi-scorchaTROOPS6 nobs: (work out cost)
3 big choppas
5 kombi scorchas
6 cybork bodys
red paint job
30 ork boys: (work out cost)
3 big shootas
30 ork boys
3 rokkit launchas
Hope i helped
Really? I heard that nob bikers were the best orks had to offer... yes the truck costs less, but the bike gives them a 4+ save, and a 4+ cover save, an extra point of toughness, they don't have to disembark every time they want to attack AND there's no free kill point for the enemy.put the boss and nobs on foot and give 'em a trukk (much better tactic)
Tell me a good reason to take a truck over bikes and I will.
I had 20 boyz and a battle wagon because a battle wagon could fit 20 boyz in, i was going to have 30 boyz, but I couldn't decide what to spend 80 points on, so I dropped 10 boys and got a wagon.(Though I'm sure this isn't the best tactic)
Yes bikes are good,but expensive. You want more boys than tougher boys. See the aim of an ork army needs to be huge.
Think about how many imperium armies have a lot of AP 4 weapons and then is the chance you fail miserably. But seriously 25x6=150 150'/.6=25 (orks) you see would you rather have: 6 bikes or 25 boys? (you should be smart enough to pick the right choice).
Look,theres only 1 vehicle,thats going to be a huge target for devastators,executioners,Lnd raiders etc. More infantry is better than a single vehicle.
Id rather have 6 bikes, they have FNP a 4+ cover save(even when there not in cover) and a 4+ save. So AP 4 won't be a problem.
At the same time I agree that I should have more normal boys and drop the transport and armour.
