In the stormboyz box, is there a nob option? I bought it and there is an extra torso front with a skull on it that's pretty awesome looking, but it really isn't any bigger than the rest of the boyz. Is that the nob or is it just an extra option for extra customization?
Secondly, would I be better served deepstriking the stormboyz or running them up the field? I have some deffkoptaz scout/turbo boost right off the bat usually, so they wouldn't be the only target. The rest of the army is a horde of footsloggers and some nobs.
Thanks in advance.

I don't remember what's in the box anymore, but I recall there NOT being a nob w/PK which is what I wanted. However, I got Zagstrukk because he looks cool.
My old Stormboyz were in a unit of 20 and worked well. My new ones aren't finished yet, but I've heard they can be very effective as a SMALL unit that sets up on the table. If you deep strike them, they'll just get cut down. Zagstrukk actually seems popular around here, but like Snikrot he's a one-shot wonder.
I used the piece you described (with the skull on it) as the nob's body. The head with the grenade in it's mouth is slightly bigger than the rest so I used that as a nob head.
I run my stormboyz in a unit of 10 and use them as a fast moving anti tank unit (with the power klaw) or as a way to distract the enemy. Just keep them supported if you want them to survive more than round, you might even want to use them to lock a unit in combat and then reinforce it with boyz when they arrive.
