    In my 1500 point ork list i want to know what is better: 10 stormboyz with a nob + power claw, all with krak bomz, or 16 shoota boyz + 2 big shootas and an ork nob with a power claw and 'eavy armour?

    Neither.

    The stormboyz & nob is way too expensive of a unit for a 1500 pt game. A couple lucky missile shots, or an ordance blast, or a failed Waaagh, or just bolter fire and you've lost nearly 15% of your total points. They might be worth it if you're playing cityfight but otherwise I would advise staying away from SBs for sub-2000 pt games unless you really have a specific role for them. IMO, with a 1500 pt game every unit counts and I just don't like to waste points on a unit that might live long enough to earn its points back.

    For the shoota boyz, you had a good idea (assuming you don't already have a mob of them), but went wrong when you gave the nob a power klaw & 'eavy armor: That unit should not be getting in CC except in extreme circumstances. Their job is to lay down fire with the ordinary shootas acting as ablative armor for the real killers: The big shootas! A power klaw on the nob is a complete waste of points for the above reason. The 'eavy armor is also useless b/c that nob can't be targetted and with the ork's mixed armor rule that means about the only time he's going to get to make an armor save is when he's the last guy standing or the whole unit is caught in template. Don't waste the 8 points. Use the points you save to give yourself a 3rd big shoota and then give the nob one too. Now you've got 4 Assault 3 weapons firing at 36".

    It really depends on what you already have, but like the other boyz said. Take the mob of regular boyz over the stormboyz...just to many points for your army. But drop the eavy armor on your nob, in the TAR it doesn&#39;t give you any benefits unless the entire mob has eavy armor.
