Welcome to Librarium Online!
I'm not looking for a point breakdown. just would like to know how many more points i will need for a 1500 point game. thanks
Thanks a lot! i bought AoBR with the intention of marines. but i quickly switched to orks. i sold all my stuff a little while back so i am kinda starting over. thanks for you help!!!
Do you mean Assault on Black Reach, or the Ork Battleforce? There's a difference, but I'll basically break down each one.
If it's the AoBR, and you use the nobz as nobz (although they won't be effective without a transport), you've got around 500 points, but it won't be that effective. Another set of assault on black reach would help, allowing you to use 5 deffkoptas in a unit, two units of boyz, and a larger unit of nobz (which I'd actually consider using as kommandos instead). If you do this, I'd also convert one of the warbosses into a big mek w/Kustom Force Field. Just glue some extra bits to his back.
Are you giving away or selling the marine stuff? If not, that dread will make a fine deff dread, bringing you closer to 600 points. Or you can add it and use the nobz as regular boyz for a 500 point game, which would be more effective than nobz on foot.
If it's the new battleforce, with the bikes, trukk and boyz, then you just need an HQ and it will be about 500 points, although you really need more boyz and 2-3 more bikes in order to be effective.
If it's the old battleforce then you won't get enough models to field 2 troop choices, but you'll have 5 bikes, a trukk, a warbuggy, and about 16 boyz. Just add an HQ and you'll have about 450 points. Another box of boyz will allow you to get to 500, but it's up to you.
The best thing you can probably do is get 2 AoBR sets, and a single trukk. If you do that, you can get over 1000 points, easy. I'd look to split the AoBR sets with a marine playing friend, to cut down costs, or just sell the marines on ebay.
