    Power Claw question

    I have decided to make Orks army.
    So I am getting Black Reach box next week, I am considering to expand my Orks with Battle Force and 2x Loota/Burna:

    Now my question is what to do with 6 Nobz (five from Black Reach and one from WD):

    I am considering this:

    Put painboy, warboss 6 Nobz together arm 2 with Power claw and load them into the trukk.

    Now I have the question, do you get power claws with Ork Warbikes (from Battle Force)?
    I was looking Warbike sprue on GW site and it doesn't seem to include Power claws.

    I don't wish to buy Nobz with power claws because I am little limited on budged, so are there any boxed sets which include a lot of sprues with plastic power claws?

    Alright, the problem with powerklaws really is the definite low numbers of them available. There are only really 2 plastic kits that come with powerklaws: The warbikers and the regular boyz mobz and each of those only come with one klaw. So basically with a battleforce you'll have a total of 3 klaws to play with.

    Or, as another ork player on a budget, you can follow my tactic of building your own out of other appropriate bitz. Ogre Ironfists can make decent powerklaws (take two bladed fists and make a claw, or just use the fist. Be sure to add cables) Otherwise, combining the spare blades that come in the boyz box and severing the arm works nicely. The deffdread claws or buzzsaws also make pretty nice powerklaws.

    Anyway, just a few ideas but on the whole, straight out of the box you'll only have 3 klaws.

    The answer to any Orky problem is scratchbuilding. Take a big nob hand, glue on various blades onto a boxy bit and you have a new shiny kustom powerklaw.

    Honestly, there's only two real powerklaws in my army, one on Mad Doc Grotznik and the other on the Blackreach Warboss.

    I made all my powerklaws out of spare bits. The moon symbols and wrenches work well, or you could just glue two small pieces of sprue to his arm, to look like a klaw. It's really not that difficult to make.

    Talk nicely to marines player to see if you can't scam some free thunder hammers and lightning claws. Or you could always make REALLY big hammers for them, I doubt anyone will argue.
