Welcome to Librarium Online!
hi there, I am new to the world of warhammer, and I need some help. I decided to collect orks, as they look rather interesting, and I like the fact that I can add things to the trukk if I want to.
I have only bought a box of space ork boyz, but wanted to make shoota boyz out of them. However looking through the codex I got confused, and wondered what guns I am to put with them.
If someon e could help me I would be much obliged.
Hey thats cool your doing orks, as for makeing your first 16 boyz shoota boyz(which is all good) but you have to think are you gunna want to shoot at your enemy or get in close and tear them to ****(both are good) as for your shoota(the gun shoota boyz use) its range: 24" str.:4 Armour Piercing: 6

Shoota boyz are useless, make slugga boyz instead becuase you can atleast rely on them to earn their points back with 4 BS 4 atks on a charge unlike useless RF BS 2 attacks at 12''/24'' range.
If the modles are already assembled use them as Flash Gitz with more Dakka. They are an elite choice but not the only use for the models if already assembled. Trust me, shoota boyz are lucky if they kill 50pts per game.
ok thanks, I gonna go with Slugga boyz, I gonna make them up now. Another question is, can you convert all the vehicles and make them unique?
Yes, that is why Orks are very fun to build! You can do whatever you want.
Just for the record, shoota boys are far from useless. I do prefer slugga boys, however last turn i moved a unit of tankbustas out of a trukk into a building offering a 4+ save. I used the 3 rokkits i had to kill several sisters of battle over the next 3 turns hitting and killing 1 the first turn, 2 the second, and 2 the third. How i wished i had some shootas to hit those sisters since they were toughness 3. The slugga's i had couldn't reach, but the boys won a battle of attrition with the sisters due to the 4+ cover save and my rokkits.
Although most games your shootas don't do much, every now and then you wish you had some.

First of all Sisters arent so hard to kill with their puny T3 and you had rokkits anyway. Second he said Shoota Boys not TankBustas Flash Gritz or wth ever names you use for your puny Orks. As in Shoota Boys with the gun Shoota suck ass, which they do, alot. The only actually semi effective way to use Shootas is to make all of your army shootas so they have a chance with that horrible BS2 to hit something. But dont do it, because they suck.
P.S the only reason i commented on this post is to point out htat tiny distinction mistake you made mouse and to not foolishly miss a chance to diss Orks since i intensely dislike them.
