I'm building up an ork army. Currently I have:
6 nobz with choppas
3 deffkoptas with rokkit launchas
3 killa kans (not assembled yet)
26 boyz with sluggas
8 boyz with shootas
2 boyz with big shootas
1 runtherd with squig and prod
1 trukk (not assembled yet)
What should I get next? Thinking about adding a big mek with a KFF...
At least two more transports (trukks or battlewagons). The lone trukk isn't going to last long at all. I'd also look into getting another 10 shoota boyz, as they work best in units of 20+. Ultimately, a big mek w/KFF would also help a lot, to give everything obscurement, especially the vehicles. Also, be sure that every unit of boyz/nobz has a powerklaw and bosspole.
"Any job worth doing, is worth doing with a powerklaw."
So what do you think about this list? I'm targeting for a 1750 point army.
Couple of comments:
- The list is not quite legit as you can't have two big shoota boys in troop 3 (I have two of them as they came in the AOBR box - and they are now already painted)
- The reason I have 8 burna boys on the list is that with two boxes of lootas you get the extra gear for 8 burnas (and I think they are fun)
- I suppose it would be better to have 11 boys in troop 2 and include another trukk? Then have those extra 4 boys moved to troop 3 (with shootas). Again the setup is like this as I've already assembled and painted the boys, sigh...
- I don't really think the Nobz with choppas are so much fun, but thats how they came in AOBR
If you don't like the way that the aobr nobz are assembled then I would reccomend buying a normal box of nobs. This box comes with a load of spare bitz after you have made the five nobz you get in the box. With all these extra bitz then you can just attach them instead of the real arms.
Also if you don't want then big shootas then you can also convert these. all you have to do is find 2 flamers of another race (tau, imperial, SM) and then you can just stick both the big shoota and the flamer together. This way you will have ten burna boyz
i have tried both of these and they have worked out quite well.
