No big shootas! /me slaps biohazard
Only in very large games I would take this. I dont usually give my boss a retinue evan in 2k point games, it's just not worth it when you can spend those points on ore boyz and stuff.
unless your theme dictates so, I would advise against, as each nob would only score a single hit each in average (remember BS2 right?) you are better off with burnas, power eapons at I6, or flamers for hordes.Originally Posted by biohazard
Nobs can take burnaz? WOW I didnt know that...Originally Posted by Wolf_Pack
well can't they? I pretty sure they can right?
In the armory, under "Two handed weapons" (Page 7)Burna (Mekboyz only)....................XX pts

Just got foiled!
Good to know, I might of done it.
Ferals Orks are allowed to take burnas as a weapon (as may Snakebite Warbosses mounted on a super cyboar and his retinue).
However, the comment about it being a points sink is correct. That group costs 260 points WITHOUT upgrades. You want 'Eavy Armour? Add on another 88 points. Big Shootas? 132 points. Choppas will run you another 22. That's 502 points.
And they still only have BS2.
The whole idea certainly sounds very bad moonish, I will admit, but still. You're not catering to the orks strength.
However, with typical ork luck, the darn thing just might work.

well the whole idea of it was to be in a badmoons army list which mine was all shooting except i unit of 20 ardboys in a battle wagon surprisingly enough i out shot the spacemarine player i tried it against but thats another story. anyways even in an all shooting army do u think the points would be better spent on something else?
When thinking up a shooty ork unit, you need to make sure the unit will be able to dish out damage from shooting, and in melee. It isn't really possible for orks with guns to earn their points back sitting back and shooting. Take this into consideration when making your list and while playing.
