    Not a bad start here.

    Personally I'd give the Mek a Burna, it's cheaper and he's not so tough but it's not a big deal.

    Warboss looks fine.

    Have both Boyz units identical, with Shootas and try to fit in 3 Rokkits because you lack firepower right now.

    The Nob unit is your super unit. I'm not a big fan of them but others swear by them, so test them out and see. Worst case it's a great delivery method for your Boss who wants to kill tanks all day.

    Grtechin are good, great home objective camper.

    Who's the Battlewagon for? No one is sized to fit in it, so I'd drop it. Otherwise, devote more points to being Meched. You have a lot of Bikes and than a decent amount of ground pounders, hitting in 2 waves can be very bad for Orks.

    Warbikers need a Bosspole or they're going to run everygame right away, probably still to small as is.

    Lootas are great, you can get away with 8-9 if you need points.


    I'd drop the Bikers and the Wagon, get yourself some more Boyz and more guns. The Warboss and Nobz are resilient so even though you'd be looking at a ground list, they'll live in many games. Than you can use them to open tanks or problem squads, thinning out your other units, even two if the Warboss splits away. I think another unit of Boyz would really help you out.

    Thnxs for the pointers. With your advice I will now be running this list(see below) and I really think it will work. If anyone would like to give their opinion, then please do!

    HQ
    1 Big mek - KFF, power claw
    1 Warboss - Warbike, powerclaw, cybork body

    Troops
    30 Ork boys - Bosspole, powerclaw, nob, shootas, 3x rokkit launcha
    30 Ork boys - Bosspole, powerclaw, nob, shootas, 3x rokkit launcha
    5 Nob bikers - 2 power claws, painboy, whaagh banner, bosspole,5 cybork bodies, grot orderly
    20 Gretchin - 2x Runtherd
    1 Deff dread- 2x flamer

    Looks way better. I'd only offer a few things and than hopefully someone else will chime in.

    The grots might be better off small, you want to hide the unit on an objective just about every game, it's hard to hide a 22 man unit.

    Deff Dreads aren't so great, especially compared to Kans. If you dropped it you could buy more Lootas, a much better investment. Or another 2 Kans, also a better buy. Consider weapons that use their BS3, Grotzookas are great but 6 is probably overkill. Rokkits or KMBs would be a solid pick.
