Welcome to Librarium Online!
Stikk Bombaz really seem useless to me, does anyone else out there agree with me? The first reason, frag grenades rarely have their use (and I don't see why you would need a 30 boy mob worth of frags), and also, the krak grenades would only really have an effect on the lightest of vehicles, which are usually too fast to get touched by them anyway.
This really doesn't bring down the army, as there a lot of other choices for troops / elites that can do the job better, but did the makers ever really think stikk bombs would be used?
See how well your orks do if they charge a unit in cover.
That's when stikkbommaz are useful.
Admittedly it's not very often.

I suppose that they really would shine in cityfight. That's probably the best place that you'll find them being used. That and junglefight.
Next up would be against non-powerarmoured armies (well, if anyone ever runs across them). After all, once you hit carapace armour, the choppa really isn't all that useful. If there's a squad of guardsmen or kroot huddling in the bushes, they might shine.
I've never really found a use for them, personally (a PK weilding nob and three burnas pop more then enough vehicles for me), but if you wind up having to face a dreadnaught or the like, I suppose it would be nice to have something, anything that would scratch them (well, other then burnas).
I see them more like stormboyz. Both are amazingly useful if used properly. Otherwise? Not so much.
Although there's plenty of people on the WAAAGH that run with them and wouldn't leave them behind. *shrugs*

the thing is about orks, is that generally when the orks hit anything that doesn't have a 3+ save, its already going to cream it. (gaunts are dead when hit back, IG suck at combat, fire warriors such at combat, MOST eldar suck at combat, etc.)Originally Posted by citybeatnik
