Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have started orks and really want some nobs, but they are very expensive for 5 boyz. Normall boyz are to small, but I think Black orcs from fantasy would be about the right size. They also have some cool armour and weapons. Is there anything wrong fluff wise? Also what do you use for your nobz?
WH40K: Tau Empire, Orks and Space Marines
WHFB: Chaos Dwarfs
Well, generally I think this is a good idea depending on what sort of bits you glue to your blackorks. If you have some skill, your Nobz will look even better than the standard ones and you'll get many compliments for your conversion. ;Y
Be assured, though, that your problem disappears with age (that is: income). When I was your age I excessively used the 50% character rule in WHFB so I don't have to buy that many models and now I'm thinking about building my Flashgitz/Posaz with Nobz.

If you swap in some bitz from boxes of normal boyz (shooty sci-fi lookin stuff) a box of Black Orcs would work just fine.
Two's to kill. Ahh, sweet sweet music.
I have done the same thing for my 'Ard boyz and they look amazing and were cheaper then the metal 'ard boyz pack.
I think the black orks are too small to be nobs but its worth getting for 'ard boyz in my point of view.
I was thinking in getting:
Games Workshop Online Store — Chaos Space Marine Terminators (2007)
and making them into mega armour nobs, it turns out £10 cheaper and since i have some cool left over ork heads and my clan is deathskulls i thought this would be perfect what do you think?
