hi I have just started collecting 40k and collect orks, I calculated that my army is 485 points it has:
1 black reach warboss
1 meganob with twin linked shoota
10 boyz with nob leader(power klaw shoota)
5 boyz with nob leader(axe pistol)
10 gretchin with runtherd leader(squig grabba)
3 killa kanz.
getting nobz next.
Is that good for 485 points
There are a couple of problems with your list. First, the meganob cannot be fielded on his own. You could field him as a warboss in mega armour before you get some more but that would be silly in a game that isn't even 500 points. I think a better option would be to play a game with a friend that will allow to field him as a strange one man unit.
The second problem is your unit of five boyz. ork boyz can only be fielded in units of ten or less.
apart from that then their is nothing that makes your army "illegal' but if fielded on the battlefield then i don't think it would be very effective. The meganob, even if you were allowed to field on its own, would be close to useless as it is only one ( i recommend at least 4 ). also it is slow and purposeful and without a transport.
Second, your boyz ( in the unit sizes that they are) will not survive long unless in a trukk. I think that you have two options either get a trukk for the larger unit and ditch the smaller one, or you can merge them together to make a larger unit. The power claw is definitely a necessity as otherwise people will just charge a walker in and bog you down for the whole game.
the gretchin are good. They have two uses .They can either be used as a human shield to give all of your units a four plus cover save or they can sit on your home objective.
The deffcopta is not much use on its own. in a larger game then it could be used as a point filler but at 485 you need all of the points you can get.
the killa kanz are interesting. If used well then they can be good. It will help if I knew what gunz they had.
I have a few questions?
1) are these all of your models . if not then please could you list them and i might be able to give you an example army list.
2) wot guns do your killa kanz have
finally, i would get nobs next but t really depends on why you are collecting them. If your collecting competitively then get more boys. If you just like the backround then get whatever you want.
Welcome to LO. Feel free to contact either myself or another mod if you have any questions. In the meantime, this thread belongs in the army list section, which can be accessed at the top of the Orc homepage.
Spambot kill tally. . .337
killa kans have 1 with rokkit launcha, 1 with burna, 1 with grotzooka. I will merge the two boys and put the nb without PK with nobz (when I get them) would I be allowed to put meganob leading a squad? Nobz maybe? Probably get a couple more meganobs . Dunno what to do with deffcopta, I'll try and get some more.
if the killa kanz have such different weapons then they would be better if you fielded the as two different units. The rokkit launcher can go on its own as it will be hunting tanks and the others can be killing infantry.
you should definitely get some more meganobs as the one is not allowed to lead a squad.
I think that a good buy would be black reach. You would get some more deffkoptas to make the squad worth its points as well as some nobs which you really want. On top of that you would get lots more ork boyz ( which you really need). the only thing is you would either have to swap the warboss or convert him so he looks different from the one you've already got.
thanks for that advice Ill definetely think about getting Black Reach.
