Welcome to Librarium Online!
I have amassed quite a bit of ork models but never in a specific list or direction. What would i need to buy to finish a 1500 army list without spending too much money as I am not yet of working age and can't buy too much. So far I have 70 choppa boyz, 2 warbosses, 10 lootas, 10 burnas, 12 nobz, and 5 deffkoptas. Note that I am up for converting boyz into other units. I'm pretty sure that this could already make a 1500 list but I doubt it would be very effective against my friends.
I'd go with a horde foot list.
2-3 boxes of Kanz
then convert or pick up Big Meks to replace your warbosses
another box of lootas would be a plus, i like to run two units of 10-12
with this you'd be set for sure
thank you very much
I don't mean to hijack the thread but I do have a similar question and I didn't want to make a whole new posting.
My question is, how do people get/make lots of Shoota Boyz for cheap? I was planning on making a horde foot army for 1,000 points with tons of Shoota Boyz. My first thought was the AOBR box but that only comes with Slugga Boyz, not Shootaz. Do you guys know if those Orks come in individual pieces (i.e., head, legs, torso, arms) so that I could buy the AOBR Boyz and then buy some Shoota guns separately? I don't feel like shelling out $25 per box for only 11 guys when I need 90, but buying unassembled AOBR Orks + individual Shoota guns would be way cheaper if that's the case.
You can get bits on ebay, or at TheWarStore.com through their battlewagon bits section, I ended up buying more normal boyz to make into shoota boyz then converted my AoBR boyz into stormboyz.
I've bought a large ammt of product through TheWarStore and can't support them enough, a really great group of people with excellent customer service.
As you can see by the attatched picture below the Ork Boyz from Assault on Black Reach come in only three parts. The head, body with choppa am, and the slugga arm. In addition to the cost of bits to get the shootas and arms I think you are much better off without chopping down 90 slugga boyz with arms attatched to their main body. It is do able but I think you should stick to the basic Boyz boxes.
Ask me about the Black and White Space Marine on the Black and White Bike!!!
best bet would be to get the battleforce box sets
Talking about Orks
A great series of videos on Orks with crap loads of great advice.

More boyz is always good. Sometimes you can find cheap ones on Ebay, and fantasy orcs work too. Since you aren't too picky about your army composition, you could look for units that give you more bang for your buck- that is, they have high points value but are cheap in price. One big point boost would be a unit of 4ish meganobz in a battlewagon. You can convert a battlewagon from a shitty toy car or tank of some sort by slapping on a bunch of 40k ork bits and glyphs, then painting it up. The meganobz are worth a lot of points and you can often find them on ebay for cheap.
AoBR boyz can be converted to shoota boys with a shoota arm. Generally though, they'll be holding a melee weapon and/or a pistol still though, with their shoota, because of how the poses are. 80% of my shoota boys are AoBR boyz with shoota arms, they turned out pretty good with only minor modifications.
