Welcome to Librarium Online!
Looking at picking up a load of Orks to start a gaming army (before I have just picked up odd models I liked to paint).
Soooooo what do you think of this as a starting point.
1x Mek boy thinking of the FW model Forge World - ORK MEK BOSS BUZZGOB
1x Deff Dread
Not sure if I should go for the dread or kans or drop the lootas for more boyz.
Any input would be good.
a Big Mek is a good secondary HQ choice, consider getting a Warboss first, he is 'ard as nails and ded killy. a Big Mek with Burna and Kustom Force Field,Mek tools,Bosspole is about the only way I'd use a Big Mek. Shokk attack gun is cool but isnt as good as a near-indestructable Battlewagon with a Big Mek riding inside with a Kustom Force Field.
If you tool up a big mek with a burna, and stick him in a wagon (looted or battle) with a bunch of burna boyz, you have a very effective unit at kuttin' through marines of any kind.
Also, off topic, welcome grimskarr, I rep you for helping players by posting so soon. You join today?
no sometime in july, I am a very experienced Ork Player since 2nd ed /Rogue trader days. Still run my original Snikrot and his Blood Axe Kommando's in my Blood Axe Mechanized Shoota army.
I'm more a speed freak myself. Got that rep working. Why such little amount of posts?
I've been playing since 4th, so I don't have the same level of veterancy, but I make up for it with raw enthusiasm!

OK - I gotta say, I love Forgeworld! What a beauty model! I do agree, Mecs are usually 2nd to the boss, and you can get the AoBR boss dirt cheap on eBay.
I would add a box of Nobs - you want them in with your boyz.
I would also say kans over dreads - with lootaz and kanz you got a pretty good gun line there, laying it down while the boyz march on up. Trukks are also good, but depends on how you want to play.
Welcome to the Green side man!

With a Mek was thinking more shooty shooty over choppy choppy
Was then thinking of using storm boyz to tie up the other players heavy weapon teams etc.
Problem with orks is, anything but the Shokk Attack gun is a waste because of a relatively small BS. What did you have in mind?
