What is LO's prediction in regards to most player's reactions if I used Dual Weilding Sluggas for about half of my shoota mob?My Deff Skullz army took a turn for the shooty that I didn't predict back when I assembled my first boyz mob with Sluggas and Choppaz (They will now by my 'Ard Boyz at least) so recently I've been itching for some shootas. The thing is, I have a ton of AOBR ork torsos and legs around that I can easly do some sergery on to have to 2 pistols. My plan is to make a mob of 20-30 with only purchasing 1 boyz box.Would many players have issue with this? What about tournys? I may make some of the pistols a little extended to account for the extra 6" that shootas have, but other than that the weapons are pretty similar.
In a friendly I'd be perfectly okay with it. However, I don't think it would be tournament legal, they would look more like slugga boyz even though they don't have a choppa.
If you call it a Missile launcher, then it'll never hit anything.
100% of people who aren't Karmoon know Saraneth is invincible.
Personally, I'd say it has to deal with how many of them have duel sluggas and how many how shootas. My shoota boyz have 5/6 with a shoota, but every so often I have one with two sluggas. I also run about half my shoota boys with a shoota and slugga, because they're AWESOME like that. (And the arms didn't fit very well)
Ooooh, I may do that too. I have a number of shootas but a shortage of grabby arms.
I have a couple like that, no problems so far. It helps that each one has shells flying out of both guns and a pile of spent ones at their feet, that's how you know deyz extra shooty.

I use dual wielding slugga boyz as shoota boyz, and I've never had any complaints at tournaments. In fact, it's the easiest way to get shoota boyz. Take cheap old viking Orks (the ones that all look identical, with horned helmets and axes) and/or Assault on Black Reach Slugga Orks, clip the guns off half of them, and the hand weapons off the rest, and then switch them around. Now half have 2 guns, and half have two hand weapons.
Thanks for the responses, looks like I'll have a mob of 30 shootas with just having to buy one box, I think.
Some might say since its 2 weapons its closer to Sluggas though. Also, pistols are pistols. I would mix and match. You can also make a bunch with shootas and empty fists raised high by cutting off the axes. They'll look crazy and appropriately terrible marksmen.
In conclusion, the only players who are going to give you grief over 2 sluggas = a shoota, are other Ork players. ^_^
