    500 pts... does it stand a chance?

    So basically I'm working up to a 1000-1500 point list, but I do not yet have all of the Orks I will be needing. So I have made this list to use to get used to the rules of the game, and just to have fun before I get the real army running. All I want to know is if this makeshift list will do any good against other 500 point, friendly armies.

    Warboss
    -pk
    -eavy armor

    90

    Slugga boyz- 21
    -nob
    -pk
    -bp

    166

    Shoota boyz- 18
    -big shoota
    -nob
    -pk
    bp

    153

    Deffkopta
    -TL Rokkits

    45

    Deffkopta
    -TL Rokkits

    45


    Total: 499

    Note: I am limited by the models I have. For example, I'm gonna be running two trucks full of slugga boys in the future, so I only have 22 models actually armed with sluggas.


    Many thanks!

    Looks pretty good to me. 2 decent sized mobs with PK nobz, a tough as nails Warboss, and some fast stuff that can take down the light vehicles that are most likely going to be used in small games. The other bonus of the koptas is that you can turboboost to grab an objective on the last turn. If your opponent isn't using vehicles or you aren't worried about them, use them as tough mobile cover. Deploy them on the board at the start of the game at least 18" away from your mobs, and then scout them in front of them before T1 if they go first to give your troops a cover save or force them to shoot at a 45 point unit that has T5, 2 wounds and a 3+ invulnerable save. You may get lucky and force 2 enemy squads to shoot at it to kill it.

    When expanding your army, I'd consider trying to find 2 more shoota boyz, 1 with a big shoota. 20 shoota boyz w/2 big shootas would be quite a bit more effective than the unit in the list.

    That aside, the list looks pretty good. The only change I'd make is I'd cut out one slugga boy and use the points to give the warboss a combi-skorcha.

    Good luck!
