    I'm just going to target the 1000 point list. I'd avoid playing any games of higher points, till you figure out what type of army you want to play first. Ork armies can be enormously varied, and jumping right into 2500 points can result in spending a ton of $$$ that you might never use, or hate playing with. Proxy and run smaller point battles for awhile until you get used to the units and find your play style.

    For the 1000 point game.

    Quick notes: Big shoota's on slugga boyz is not very useful. Slugga boyz will tend to run every round, and never stop to shoot. Shoota boyz on the other hand, will shoot and shoot and shoot...and thus having a big shoota on them is much more useful.

    Never take single vehicles as an ork player. You want to overkill a target. So one battle wagon will absorb the entirety of your enemies anti tank line...two he'll have to divide...three he's in big trouble!

    Loota's can't fire if the vehicle moves. Thus it's a major waste of a battlewagon (unless it's a massive point battle) to have a group of loota's sit in it.

    You've got too little boys. Drop one of the nob groups (most likely the painboy group). Use that groups points to add another battle wagon, and increase the group of 10 boyz to 20.

    I came up with something like this...

    3x Battle wagons
    grot riggers, armor plates, Big shoota on each. 2 have rams, 1 has deff rolla.

    2x 20 shoota boyz, with nob pk/bp

    3x MANZ + 1 KFF Big Mek with Burna/cybork/BP

    5x loota's

    Thats one possible combo....of course nothing is on the ground cept the loota's.

    Another combo would be...
    2x BW, Deff rolla, Grot, Armor plates, BS

    1x 20 slugga boyz, with nob pk/bp (in one BW)
    3x MAW 2nd BW
    1x Big Mek KFF 2nd BW

    1x 25 shoota boyz with 2 BS, + Nob PK/BP on ground
    2x 5 loota's on ground
