    New Member with 586 Point Army (To Match Against SM Battle Reach)

    Hey Guys,

    This forum is a great resource. Thanks for all the great threads on your favorite unit sucking, and various strategies. I recently purchased the battle reach set, and a few other small pieces, and have begun putting an army together for our first small skirmishes.

    This is what I've come up with, and I'd appreciate any feedback. The 585/586 points come from the SM Battlereach army, which comes to 585 points. So that was my target points. This army will eventually be expanded to around 1,000 points, when funds become available.

    I do know off the top that this army is lacking in anti armor weapons, but since the points are relatively limited, I'm hoping no one brings any big tanks to the fray. It's also missing gret's .

    HQ:
    Battle Reach warboss
    + Power Claw
    + Cybork
    + Avy Armor
    + boss pole
    + shoota/skorcha kombi

    In a group with.
    27 shoota boyz.

    Then two groups of trukk's and boyz.

    (Two times everything below)
    Trukk
    +red paint
    +ram

    + 12 slugga boyz
    + nobz upgrade
    + power claw
    + bosspole


    Other items I have (or will have shortly from ebay/craigslist purchases).
    1 additional trukk (for 3 total)
    1 battle wagon with deff rolla
    10x lotta's
    1 box of either lotta/burna
    an additional 50 slugga/shoota boyz.
    3 defchopters (or buggies if I mod them)
    3 kila kan's with grotzooka's
    1 Big Mek with Kustom Force Field and Power Claw
    4 Nobz with Power Klaws

    Thanks for helping me with my army!
    -G

    Hey man, pretty new myself, but..

    it seems to me that you intend to field the warboss with the shootas? It seems a bit of a waste to me, you want him krumpin' quick, not hangin back shooting!

    So drop one slugga boy and stick him in a trukk. Apart from that the list looks good.

    All the best

    Thanks! I guess that would be a nasty surprise to have the Warboss and a slew of choppa boyz assault out of a truck rapid quick.

    I guess the main reason I had the shoota's on the ground was just to have them do something on the way to assaulting. Could easily swap them back to slugga's, or drop some boyz and throw in another truck (could take off the ram's and paint).

    So a little update. Had a game yesterday, we did 3 500 point armies.
    I fielded


    HQ:
    Battle Reach warboss
    + Power Claw
    + Cybork
    + Avy Armor
    + boss pole
    + shoota/skorcha kombi

    with 20 slugga boyz and
    + nobz upgrade
    + power claw

    and a second group
    + 20 slugga boyz
    + nobz upgrade
    + power claw
    + bosspole

    and two kila kans. (silly, but I just wanted to know about vehicle rules). Next time I'll take more boyz.

    This was vs a 500 point space marine army (dreadnaught, captain, 5 marines, 5 terminators) and a 500 point necron army (12 gauss guys, lord with orb, and the dudes with infiltration and claws.

    Table was 2.5 feet wide. (it's all we had).

    I split my army, and charged warboss group towards necrons, and the other group towards the space marines. Took about 6 causilties on the way there. Turn 2, I waarrgh'd, rolled a 5, and assaulted both groups. End result of the turn 2 charge, was 4 more dead orks, but 5 dead space marines, 3 dead terminators (he rolled 3 1's for saves!), and 6 necron's down. Power claws are insane!

    End result of the game was 500 points of orks took out 1000 points of SM and necrons, due to basically the whole game being in CC, and my warboss making save after save after save!
