Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've started collecting Orks, and I only have a measley collection of 30 Boyz, a Warboss, Killa Kan, Big Mek, and Looted Wagon.
I've decided to collect Deffskullz, because it allows me to model bits of my brothers spare space wolves bits onto them, and to nick his old Vindicator and turn it into a looted wagon
Except for more Boyz and some Lootaz, what else should I get oh wise green ones?
Hate to jump on with a response like this, but i could also use some help in this area. To many of my friends play SM and Eldar so Orks seem like the next coolest option, so any help would be very graciously accepted. Thanks mate you helped me from having to make a new thread

PK Nobz and more Kanz would help krump some hard and stomp through the infantry. You could also pick up some Kommandos with snikky, haven't gotten to use them in battle quite yet as I'm still collecting myself but they seem fun. A lot of it depends on what type of army you want to run. Shooty or stompy? Vehicle or footslogging? If you want a faster army get some biker boyz/nobz. I personally like advancing up a field with uncountable orks, the look of the faces right before a full unit of boyz assualts is absolutely amazing. That's the great thing about Orks, there's no right way to play or right roster.
Everything you have right now is pretty static.
Biker nobz would give you a nasty (with a capital N) assault unit that will get into hth fast
You could also......get more boyz
- 2 units of choppa boyz loaded into trucks to go stomp on them while the footslogers hoof it.
- 1 big unit of shoota boyz
#25 - Relation to the original topic decreases with every single post.
I think it'll be mostly Shooty, maybe even a defensive Ork army to be different.
About Snikky, I've already decided to not use special characters, orgininality is everything (I have ideas to use a land raider with no roof as a battle wagon, with a diarama of snots and grots inside )
Defensive and shooty eh?
Well as they said above your primary troops choice will invariably be boyz with shootas
Your elites will likely include Lootas, which when not targeted right off the bat can win games, but also will die super fast when your opponent realizes they need to die. You may want to try out tankbustas just for kicks. Some people like them, lots of others don't. I throw them in every now and then.
For fast attack you can't really go wrong with deffkoptas, although I'd steer clear of the big bomms and take only a maximum of one buzzsaw. Rokkit buggies will give you some speed too, although for buggies I love skorchas. Nothing quite like boosting up 12" and throwing down a S5 template.
Heavy support will be your bread and butter for a shooty list. You can go the looted wagon with boomgun route, but watch out for their unreliability. I only really like them when coupled with battlewagon transports in a mobile list because ayone who sees the looted wagon as a greater threat over the battlewagon is in for a big surprise. Killa Kans work as both a defensive and offensive power so I'd take at least one squadron of these in your list regardless. They say the best is Grotzookas, followed by rokkits. Personally, I have been trying out 2 grotzookas w/ 1 Big Shoota and it has worked well. I would say to avoid battlewagons as trying to make them anything but a transport will only suck up points that will never see any return.
Now, for my favorite combination in the shooty list: take a big mek with a shokk attack gun, give him a bosspole, and stick him in a unit of kannons. You've got a hard hitting unit with a rerollable leadership 8 that can fire at two targets.
OK i bought a warboss, a squad of nobz, and an ork battle force box. Now the idea I was hoping to achieve with my army is A LOT of BOYZ. Is there any apocolypse box or way that i can amass lots of orks at once rather then having to buy 10-20 at a time?

there is a green tide apocalypse box set that contains a warboss and 100 boys.
you might be able to pick one up on the net somewhere.
