    Your army looks like it's off to a good start, but there are a few changes/tweaks I'd make:

    1. I'd give the warboss 'eavy armor and a cybork body. It's important to keep him alive until he strikes at initiative 1.

    2. Drop the big choppas and 1 bosspole from the nobz. A second bosspole doesn't do anything, since you can't re-roll the same die twice, and big choppas are a waste. Instead, give them 1 powerklaw and a combi-skorcha. Eventually, a painboy and cybork bodies will also help, but at this point level it's good enough without them.

    3. Drop grot riggers from the trukk. It's too easy to destroy it to warrant the upgrade. Ram is all you need. Be sure to keep it hidden in cover. Also, on a side note, you might want to start this unit in reserve, because otherwise it's going to attract a lot of fire early on.

    4. Big bombs are a terrible investment. I've never seen them do diddly squat. The buzzsaw is okay, but not necessary, if you need the points elsewhere.

    5. Use the points from the big bombs and/or buzzsaw to give the shoota boyz a nob, powerklaw and bosspole.

    6. When expanding your army, you might want to consider getting lootas and/or big gunz. Don't bother with the official big gunz pewter units. Just buy a single imperial guard weapons team and a box of grots. ^_^

    Good luck!

    Thanks man and thanks for the help aswell i was starting to wonder if anyone would even reply.

    1. I'd give the warboss 'eavy armor and a cybork body. It's important to keep him alive until he strikes at initiative 1.

    2. Drop the big choppas and 1 bosspole from the nobz. A second bosspole doesn't do anything, since you can't re-roll the same die twice, and big choppas are a waste. Instead, give them 1 powerklaw and a combi-skorcha. Eventually, a painboy and cybork bodies will also help, but at this point level it's good enough without them.

    Yeah I ran out of ideas what to spend points on so i just shoved it into big bomms and random stuff.

    Here's my new list taking into consideration what you've said

    Squad 1: Warboss with Power klaw, eavy armour and cybork body =105
    leading 5 nobz with eavy armour, bosspole, waaagh! banner and 1 power klaw= 170
    In a trukk with reinforced ram (reserve) = 45

    Squad 2: 20 boyz with 2 big shootas (remove them as casualties before i charge)
    With a Nob leader with power klaw and boss pole = 170

    Squad 3: 20 boyz with 2 big shootas (remove them as casualties before i charge)
    With a Nob leader with power klaw and boss pole = 170

    Squad 4: 20 Shoota boyz with 2 rocket launchers,
    Nob leader with power klaw and boss pole = 180

    Squad 5: 3 deffkoptas with twin linked rocket launchers and one buzz saw = 160p

    total = 1000

    would take combi scorcher but not enough points and seeing as they are mainly going to be close combat i thought the other things were more important.

    thanks for your help, tell me how you think this one is

    please say why

    Can that guy who wrote that it's horrible please say why, because i get the feeling from other peoples reactions that it's not that bad and i get the feeling that you were just doing it to be a noob and get some thrill out of it. But if not please prove me wrong i would love to hear why my list sucks.
