Welcome to Librarium Online!
Just got a box of boyz and I'm not sure how to build them. So far I'm going speed freaks, I have 20 'ard boyz with choppa's and sluggas, two big shootas, and led by a power klawed nob.
Based on the assault on black reach
Well you are going speed freaks so it is really easy.
12 boys w/choppa and slugga, Nob power klaw bosspole.
Trukk Reinforced ram and extra armor,
Run at least three of these!! as AV 10 open topped can be stopped by bolters!!
(or you can run 2 and a battlewagon thats what i do but I run a half mechanized half slogging army so... Then again i haven't played that many high competitive games but I haven't lost with my list yet. not joking but I have only played CSM, SM and old IG)
Also get at least one battle wagon. They are good and a really big cool model!
Here is how i run mine
Battlewagon--Grot riggers, ard case, x4 big shootas, deff rolla, red paint job.
This way it can move faster ("1 can be the difference between a successful assualt or failure) if it gets hit and immobolised the grots can try to fix it and I can shoot 12 shots out.)
In a battle wagon put in one of these options
-Warboss, Nob and 18 boys
-Warboss, nobz unit
You don't really need hard boys in a transport, because that is there armor. plus orks are gonna die don't waist that many points preventing the inevitable. Plus it is fun to see how many orks your opponent kills and they still lose. Haha.
Repainting Orks not sure how many points yet
Warriors of Chaos shelved until further notice
I've had some good results with 20 shoota boyz in a cheap battlewagon (big shoota, ram, grot riggers and armor plates) come at 280 and are a force to be reckoned. They can shoot troops or light transports and still have 57 regular S4 attacks on the charge plus 4 power klawed. Being inside a transport makes it easier for the whole mob to shoot at a target, so you can focus fire from two battlewaagons (68 shoota, 18 big shoota shots!) to cripple or destroy enemies without even exposing your troops to small arms.
Needless to say, enemy troopers can also be inside transports, so you will still need some can opener to pop them out. Rokkit buggiez are a people's favourite here, as they are fast and inmune to psychology, but I personally use deffkoptaz with quite success. Massed loota fire can also play this role against a wide varity of vehicles.
Ork Latin Lover since 1980
I'd reccomend ard boyz in a transport as when they are assaulting something like marines who hit back just as hard the 4+ save can do wonders to stalling the demise of a small squad of orks. just 12 of them with eavy armour will last much longer.
