A few questions for you longer term Ork players realy. Basicaly I've done some research and found alot of mixed info regarding them. So lets get started.
What do you guys think about them in general? A fully maxed out unit with a Painboy and Badrukk looks realy evil. Well on paper anyhow. Slap em in a trukk and they look near on unstoppable. Just a tad bit expensive at 550 points + Trukk though.
How would you go about making Flash Gitz? Im thinking a Nobz box and either the Loota's box or using the guns and some other parts from the bikers.
I'm going for the Bad Moon clan, are there any other units that are Bad Moon?
A few thoughts about how they look "on paper":
If you spend 550 points (including Badrukk and a PainBoy AND a Trukk) then you're going to have enough models to take maybe 20 shots with the "more dakka" upgrade. That's 20 shots with a 33% chance of hitting something at 24"! So what other shooty Ork goodies can you get for 550 points?
1.) Well you can get 2 units of 30 Ork Shootas and another small unit of 15. That's about 148 Shots at 18" from 75 Orks!
2.) Even better you can get 36 Lootas that will average about 72 Shots at 48" with a better strength than even the "Shootiest Snazzgun" a Flash Git can get.
As far as putting them in a trukk, I think it will only paint an even large target on your poor Gitz and it just about anything shooting at trukk will have it destroyed in the first turn leaving the Gitz scattered! Sure they are really decked out with Cybork and Guns, but such few shots at so poor a ballistic skill...they could have at least had twin-linked guns! I completely understand taking them for the Bad Moon fluff instead of Lootas, but unfortunately and uncharacteristic for the Bad Moons...they're broke!
get yourself lootas. flashgritz are junk.

Flash Gitz are a fun unit to convert and use, but they are easily one of the least competitive units in the Ork army.
They're expensive for so few shots at BS2, can't get a dedicated Battlewagon, and even though they have Nob stats they have no option for PKs to help in combat.
They're fun, but ultimately a crap unit competitively.
So, which other units are Ban moons esq then? Its looking more n more like that I'll either just be using the Bad moons colours without the fluff. Or swap to another clan.
Flash Gitz are the most Bad Moonish unit out there, but you can really make anything fit the Bad Moons. They have the teef to afford the best gadjits and can equip their boyz how they want.
Lootas could be eksperimental soopa snazzguns, Kommandoz are Bad Moons with looted Tau Stelf technology "purchased" from a local Deffskull and the flashiest techy bits teef can buy, Nobs are easy enough to trick out proppa, and their wagons have plenty of kustomizations one could pick up.
Meganobz are a good place to start- expensive exoskeletons tricked out with moons and such.
The real thing to remember is just put a bunch of gear and bits all over your troops, as they can purchase extras and gizmos and decorations.
You could also always throw in a really cheap, small unit of flash boyz for fluff reasons without killing your competitiveness.
