5 mega nobz in a battle wagon and mad dok
6 nobz in a trukk and mad dok
18 boyz in a battle wagon
other (please specify)
i just found out ghaz is s@#t on his larry so i was wondering what body guards to use him with please give a reason to your anwser
Ghaz + 9 mega + battlewagon is what i would choose. So i chose other.
There are two schools of thought: logical, and insanely awesome.
The logical thing to do is put him with 18 boyz (slugga or shoota) in a battlewagon, and run him up the board. The beauty of this combo is that he benefits from their fearlessness and the large number of wounds the boyz can soak up from shooting attacks, and they benefit from his awesome close combat punch. If the opponent focuses their attacks on Ghaz, then the boyz will probably win the combat even if Ghaz dies, and if they focus on the boyz, Ghaz will keep krumping the enemy until there's nothing left.
The insanely awesome thing to do, however, is put him with a large number of meganobz, all with cybork, and Mad Dok Grotznik. Run that unit up the board and you'll love the expression on your opponent's faces. This works especially well in Apocalypse, along with the flank march strategem.
However, the 'logical' choice is better, because you're not putting your eggs all into one basket, and the attacks that are good against boyz aren't necessarily good against Ghaz, and vice versa. If Ghaz is with the Mad Dok and Meganobz, then the entire unit has the same weakness (high strength attacks/shooting that ignores armor), and depending on your opponent, that might spell doom for them. The 18 boyz in the wagon is definitely the safer bet.

Ghaz + 6 Nobz + Painboy + Trukk
Cheap, still very killy, and alot of combats you don't win on the charge, now don't fret at this it's a good thing it means your elite choppy unit doesn't take fire in their shooting phase instead stays in combat and is free on your turn. Meganobz on the other hand not only cost like 3x as much $ but kill the unit they charged only to be anhialated by a vindicator without any invuls and are instakilled. Trust me I've done it many times before.
Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!
Ghaz + 8 nobz + painboy in a trukk with at least boarding plank and red paint job.
4 nobz with big choppas
2 nobz with powerklaws
2 nobz with slugga and choppa
The big choppas and normal slugga/choppa guys give you a good balance of attacks at normal initiative with the extra strength and still allow you to sacrifice the normal nobz without it costing you as much in points as losing nobz with big choppas.
The boarding plank allows you to use ghaz to tear up vehicles etc while not leaving you vulnerable to a countercharge unless they take out the trukk first.
Trukk - nothing gets you there quicker
I went with Ghaz with 5 mega nobs, a battlewagon, and the mad dok. However, like someone else stated, its expensive, and maybe I'd prefer to get them up the park a bit quicker in a trukk.
I havent really experimented enough with Meganobs or Grotsnik, so I'll be trying various tactics before I can really justify my decision.

I don't have as many Orks as I'd like, but when I run Ghazzy its usually him and a unit of ten 'Ard Boyz with a PK nob in a trukk. Not as killy as a few other combos but at a recent Apoc game they managed to gobble up Marenus Calgar, his honor guard, and all but one Masters of the Chapter. Not bad considering his retinue was only 135 points. And the ensuing assault and parking of my trukk prevented his gunline from firing effectively for a few turns, Waaaagh!
Ghaz + 6 mega nobs + grotsnik for the cybork bodies
That's it....I'm painting my Ghaz model and trying this out.
