Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey guys. I'm helping a friend of mine work on his first ork list (new player) and wanted to get opinions. He was really set on building a foot slogging army and this is just his start. His main opposition will be Nids, necrons and Imperial guard (myself).
Warboss Megarmor/boss pole/cybork body =115
3 meganobz kombi shoota-rokkit = 135
10 'ard boyz with trukk, big shoota, and nob with pk and pole = 185
10 shootas w/ rokkit = 70 (i believe he should try to get a trukk for these but he does not have one yet)
20 slugga choppa boyz. nob w/ pole = 135
10 gretchin w runtherd = 40
war buggy w/ twin-linked rockets =35
3 killa kans w/ rokkits = 150
looted waggon w/ boom gun, big shoota, 'ard case and armour plates. (he will drop some armor for this guy for points elsewhere if needed) = 135
"I've seen you humans trying to forge an empire in the name of a corpse. I have seen your churches to the machine. Racially, your fear and superstitions are most gratifying. You will make excellent subjects"
ditch the ard case and armour plates. either swap the kombi rokkits for skorchas or ditch them to. use those points for a trukk for them. then ditch the 10 shoota boys to make a 30 strong boys mob (with shootas) and use whatevers left to give them some big shootas.
ALternatively ditch the nobs for some lootas. to sit on your objective with ur grots
Footslogging is extremely viable for the bulk of your army if Ghazgul is present. 30 boyz, claw, bosspole, big shootas causes some real havok when it moves 18" towards the enemy turn 2. Worse yet is when it is Ghazgul himself in a unit of various Nobs.
you should definitely ditch the meganobs for more boys and a trukk (like you said) as they are slow and they will not be able to keep up.
Also the warbuggy should probably go for a variety of reasons 1) it is and easy kill point so people will just get rid of it. 2)as there is only one then it will probably not do much.
If you did this then you could get a trukk and 22 more boys. this means you could keep your shoota boyz and have them in a trukk and make another unit of twenty.
Also you should get rid of the mega armour on the warboss and just give him ard armour. This would give you a couple more boys.
