Welcome to Librarium Online!
My standard nobz mob has been underperforming recently and seems to get very expensive to make it worthwhile. So ive been investigating meganobz as an alternative. My main problem is the lack of invulnerable saves and then going last, i think ill lose a few. So anyone who uses mega nobz, do they work well and secondly is there a way to make my nobz mob better?
I think Meganobz suck. I'm totally sick of instant kills, power weapons and AP2 shots. They strike last and hardly make a difference.
Gimme a boy with a choppa and I'll take on the world.
Mega Nobs do not suck, but you have too choose their battles, The only part i hate is they are slow, put them in a truck or a BW and just make sure they fight things without PWs, against anything that punches threw armor they become much less useful and not worth the points. but they will dominate anything else, also make sure too include at least 1 combi rockket/scorcha/TW shoota, too take advantage of the Multiple Weapon Rule.
Nobs take down the big targets, MANZ take down everything else
MANZ will not beat MCs or Assault Terminators, but they can wade through battle cannons and AP3 fire all day. They need a Boss with a bosspole, but otherwise they will laugh off anything short of plasma and demolisher shells.

last game i managed to charge a 13 man boyz squad with my 3 manz. I failed 4 saves = 2 dead MANZ before they even got to hit back. And just for the fun of it, the last nob didnt kill a single boy, and was so afraid he laid down crying so that the boys could kick him in his guts. His squad didnt even have a Nob! And i lost 3 MANZ on charge. Worst luck ever!
other than that, i think MANZ do OK. I havent tested them out that mutch, but i will use them for a bunch of missions to come. They are so awsome model wise and pure fluffyness!
