Welcome to Librarium Online!
Im new to the Orks and Ive had the suggestion to not take a Nob retinue if I am playing games under 1800 points. So then, my question is what type of unit to bond the Warboss to in their place? Ive seen some people favouring 'Ard Boyz, but are Flash Gitz and Skarboyz also options?

Lots of ways to go on thisone. If your army is fast you can put him in with trukkboyz even, or in a big mob of sluggaz if you are walking across the table.
My personal favourite is a painboss with 8 cyborks and a trukk, and have the warboss join them. Scares the crap out of people and is very survivable for the points.
'Ard Boyz are definitely a decent option - they are pretty good at surviving enemy shooting. I'd recommend against putting the boss in a Flash Gitz mob, because one, it's smaller than a normal mob (I think) and two, it specialises in shooting - you want your 'boss to hit it up in CC, not sit back and shoot!
Slugga Boyz are a very good option, too, due to their vast numbers - they can take plenty of hits, too.
Keep it simple, though, and logical - don't attach him to small squads that can't take hits, and don't attach him to squads that specialise in something other than CC. :tongue:
A favorite of mine as well, when my boss isn't riding on top of a super cyboar to slap things silly with a burna.Originally Posted by robotnik
Just be sure to have plenty of OTHER trukks out there to distract your opponent from that giant tempting target that's barreling right at them.
