What benefits does a slugga/choppa have over a shoota. Does it give another attack over the base?
Yup, slugga/choppa has two close combat weapons, thus does more attacks. But lackign the shoota, has less ability to shoot.
Can get insane, imagine 120 close combat attacks!

As awesome as that would be, you're going to be very hard pressed to fit the full 30 boyz in combat range. Though, getting 20 of them in isn't really out of the question
Unless your up agaisnt another mob of 30 boyz!
Well I don't believe for a second that the shoota should be a viable option at all.
Its just not worth all the effort of shooting at 18" range (where nids can assault) only 2 shots with like 30% chance of a hit, then the wounding, then the armour save.
Against gaurdsmen or other orks it works a little but its definately not game-winning.
Always go fer choppa!
I like shootas for the flexibility they offer. Sluggas mess things up in combat, but shootas can actually do some damage at range and in combat (they still have 2A base!). I give shootas big shootas too to put out even more dakka and tear up weaker infantry or force lots of saves on MEQs. Plus, with their range they are ideal for holding objectives.

I agree - shootas are wonderful for holding objectives.
