ok, so basically i have two black reach sets, yeah? so everythings great, i'm doin fine, and then my friend asks me if i want to split another one. So, the qestion is is: should i? is it worth it? what sort of stuff could you do with three sets of black reach orks?
Well, it would calculate to about 1350 points, but you can't use 3 HQ choices, so about 1250. You could make it an 1500 point army and would be pretty awsome. 2 squads of 30 boyz, 1 squad of 10 nobz with trukk, another squad of 10 (if you buy the metal ones aswell) in a trukk, and a squad of 4 deffkoptas and a squad of 5. Then if you want you should get some killa kans. I am going to take 6 killa kans for my 1500 point army, 3 with big shootas, and 3 with kustom mega blasters. I hope this helps.
cool- thanks for the help
Honestly a 3rd wouldn't be that great for Either fo you, he doesn't need 3 dreads and 15 termies, and from what i've seen, you don't need 15 nobs(unless one of the nobs does come with a PK, didn't look like it from the pictures) and a nob without a PK is... limited
and Deffkotas are alright but not worth having 9, i'd say stick too 2 sets, buy yourself a Ork Battleforce or a couple Nobs with Powerklaws to lead your boys. I for one am buying 1 Black reach set, for the awsome looking Warboss, extra boys if i need them, and the space marines(not the dreadnot, i'm gonna try to sell him cheap), the Deffcoptas will be Spare parts to pick at when i'm done with them.
Why not? Lots of cheap Boyz is the main draw of the box, and any Ork army needs plenty of boyz.
The Nobs can be converted to lead squads or into Flash Gitz if you want.
The Bosses can be cannibalized for use in boyz mobs (lop off his claw and stick it on a nob).
Deff Koptaz won't see much use, but you could field 1 unit of 5 and 1 unit of 4 if you really wanted

hm.. you have a point, but i am a bit short on cash, and i may be better off buying other things to give my army a bit more versatility, eg battleforce, converting some lootas, vehicles of some sort, that sort of thing
In a different thread, I mentioned converting the Terminators into Mega-Armored Nobz by buying some Ork Head Bitz & Greenstuff.
The Regular Space Marines could arguably be converted into Lootas, Kommandos, whatever with some Bitz & GS as well.
Dreadnaught = Deff Dreads with a little work.
Plenty of options and *maybe* worth the money. I guess it all depends on what you're looking to build for the army. 60 Boyz is something useful indeed. If you don't need that many, you now have extra models to be drivers/gunners for your wagons, trukks, battlewagons, Deff Dreads, Warbuggies, whatever.
