how many attacks to slugga boyz have? because in the codex shoota boyz and slugga boyz have the same amount of attacks, but on the army biulder the ork slugga boyz have +1 attack for the pistol and close combat weapon, and the shoota boyz have +0... as you'd expect.
also, whats the point of the shoota boyz?
We can't give point values out on the forums that stuff is owned my GW, copyright laws, I sure you understand.
As for the Attacks I belive that Slugga boyz do get one more attack in CC.
shoota and slugga boys both have twice as many attacks as a spacemarine to start of with. but the slugga boy has two CCW so he gets an extra attack,
the point of shoota boys is to shoot, they have rapid fire shootas that can do some serious damage, augmented by 3 rockets or big shootas etc.
the yare usefull in a hoard army to shoot up the enemy as you close in.
ok thanks. in a starting out army should i mass slugga or shoota first, i have 33 slugga boyz, 2 heavy shoota boyz,6 burna boyz, 5 nobz and 16 un glued boyz(+various vehicles for fun battles). basicly should i make the other squard shoota or slugga?
the best combination is to have all slugga boys, but with the maximum allowed number of big shootas. so squads of 15-20 boys with 3 big shootas, you can make cheap big shootas by cutting the end of the barrle off a shoota and extending it with the entire barrel section of another shoota.
burnas are most effective in truck boys mobs.
However squads of only 15-20 can easily get under the 12 orks needed to be fearless. If you have 30 they will not run or be pinned not to mention the chance of lets say a hidden pk making it into the enemys tank is higher.
Already got 2 ages ago .. before i got meh codex, which has the summery in it anyway.
whats a pk?
well, if you got the codex and you got the reference sheet then why are you asking?
And if you don't know the rules then look in the rule book. The bonus attacks for haveing an extra cc weapon and chargeing is explained.
In army builder they add in the attack for haveing an extra CC weapon with writing 2/3.
2 stands for the base attacks and 3 for the extra attack.
The extra attacks are not included in codexes, if they are, then its mentioned in a box below the entry.
I only just got the rule book on CD whne i posted this i didnt have it.
and i am asking becasue i though 4 attacks on the charge was quite alot for 9 pts.
epecially when u look at the choppa special rules.
