im sure someone beat me to the punch but i was working on my new ork lootas. i saw a good opp to mod 1 of them a little and its very simple. there is a loota with a twin large caliper gun. on the back of his gun there is a fuel can. well i filled the air cooling vents with white putty and it makes the 2 large air cooled barrels look like water cooled barrels. it was easy and it looks good and orkee. now he be ready da big waagh!!!!!
That sounds like an interesting conversions, pics nao!
As for your poll, it's gotta be Lootas. So much dakka, so much character, and pretty models to boot. Meganobs come in at a close second because of their sheer stompyness.

The choice is between lootas and mega nobz?!
On paper, lootas are the best unit the orks have, but for game winning power, I have to go with the mega nobz. They've saved my tail more times than I can count, and never die quickly.
Lootas are fantastic, and the best anti-armor shooting the Orks have, but I've had units of them wiped out on turn one, whereas the Mega Nobz are tougher, come with their own trukk or wagon, and can claim objectives!
Yeah, I gotta go with the Manz.
im for of a 'ard boy fan. there sheer number and better armor save makes then good foot sloggin' troopers in open fields. my number 2 is lootas. big guns and a lot of ammo to boot.
'ard boyz are a rip-off. For only 2 points more, you can have another ork. Instead of spending 80-120 points on ard boyz upgrades for a single unit of 20-30 orks, you could spend 85 points on a big mek with KFF and give EVERY unit of footsloggers within 6 inches a 5+ cover save. Remember, only a single member of the unit has to be that close in order for the entire unit to get the save. It's infinitely more cost effective, and you still get it against AP4 weapons and better.
Remember, some of the biggest threats to footslogging orks are auto-cannons, assault cannons, heavy bolters, and battlecannons. Not one of those weapons will allow you your 'ard boyz save, but the KFF works against them all.
I know they're overshadowed by the rest of the options (maybe not 'ard boyz...) but I really like tankbustaz!
I think their models are cool and their fluff is very fun to play around with. They're not the most competitive choice for one's army, but I always have a good time fielding them.
Victory is achieved through mettle.
Glory is acheived through metal.
i chose for meganobz cauze if you use them in a trukk you could keep the enemy busy till your others squad arrive lootas came second because i like the heavy D3 thing

tankbustas are good. they are very useful in city fighting were you can hide and ambush tanks. the tank hammers are great againist land raiders. then you got bomb squigs. they are very good, but you got to use them right.
Had to go with my third favorite since my first and second choice (burnas and nobz, respectively) aren't on the poll.
I don't have the FAINTEST clue how any of them really perform on the field, seeing how I've only fought against Orks once and don't really have many yet myself, so my opinion is based on sheer cool-factor and Codex stats
