Welcome to Librarium Online!
One of the people I usually play against is an ork player and he has a unit of about seven nobs in mega armour and a warboss in mega armour and about 4 grots. They all travel in a wartruk. I was wondering how many mega armoured models can fit in a wartruk as for in other armies, larger models with (terminators, ogryns) take up two spaces in a transport.
Is this legal?
I know that we can put 10 ork in a wartruck (even with mega armor) but i don't know for the other army.Originally Posted by Factionman
Where did you read that?
Page 21 of the Ork codex, in the warboss entry:
"Wartrukk: If the Warboss and his bodyguard number ten models or less (including squigs, Grots, etc) they may mounted in a wartrukk..."
Apparently, mega armor makes no difference.
Thanks for that. That means theres about three less wounds in that squad now, lol.
heh man that makes mega armoured stuff excellent, and ownage -_-;; 2+ saves moving fast hahah. own3d..
At least until they get a glancing/penetrating hit on the open-topped, made-out-of-wet-tissue-paper AV10 wartrukk. That's alot of points to be rolling around like that. Personally, I've never found much use for either nob retinues or mega-armor.
But then, my warboss is on a supercyboar and tools around with a band of doped up boarboys on cyboars. that +1 strength on the regular boys and the nob is, to say the least, nice. That and the burnas... wee!
Granted, I do stick a painboss with 9 cyborks in a wartrukk, but that's still 250+ points tooling around. Maybe for larger games, but that's still a good chunk even for 2000 pts.

Well I think his is around 450+ points for warboss and retinue, in a 1,500 game. They used to be the most dangerous thing on the field in our games, especially since my other freind and I play Imperial Guard, better known as Nob toothpicks. But, I recently got a L. Russ Demolisher, they aren't much of a problem anymore.
Damm you faction man your just doing that because i gt your khorne lord to have less attacks
For that i might start making my battle wagon and have more nobs in there
Hehe, just checking.
Besides, the Lord works better now as he attacks first with initiative 6, 8 attacks on the charge, strength 8.
Also, I would like to see you make a battlewagon. They look really cool.
