Hi alll i was wondering what you thought was the best equipment for a warboss and his nobs for a speed freak army.
Speedfreaks? Tough to say, do you usually have him rolling around in a battlewagon, on a bike, or in a trukk?
For the boss I still stand by the old favorite of Choppa/PK along with the Bonce, Body, and 'Eavy Armour. Though expensive, a WAAAGH banner might also help you get off the WAAAGH-check with your lower model count.
Still. Choppa/PK GOOOD.

Sounds like a good combo i think illl have him in a batttle wagon mayeby or maybey just a wartrukk but why the choppa doesent the power claw ignore armour saves?I think i might use the special rules for a kult of speed warboss in chapter aprroved(warboss mounted on warbike.)

My personal favorite is this for Nobs in speed freaks:
Nob: Power Claw, Bionik Arm, Combi-Skorcha.
This allows you to deliver one S5 AP4 flame template before you charge, which will certainly earn its points back, and attack with your full 5 s8 attacks on the charge, as well as an automatic s4 hit once per game. Don't worry about armour at all, for you only use it to make armour saves once all other orks are dead.
For a boss, it depends on how you are going to use him. If he is not in a retinue, I recommend giving him at least Cybork Body for the invulnerable, and then give him a power claw and choppa for versatility in attacks on the charge.
It sounds like a good combonation for the nobs,Im gonna field the warboss in a retinue and go after my enemies biggest and strongest charecters then after i kill that if i do ill send him and his nobs infantry hunting.
The choppa lets you use initiative 4/8 attacks if you need to (useful when you're fighting on your own, for instance, and want to kill as much as possible before he's taken down) whilst still reducing armour saves to 4+.Originally Posted by Champion of Slaanesh
In a KOS, I'm a fan of the good 'ol mega armour. Stick a bionic arm on him and he doesn't lose the attack, and the 2+ save is invaluable.
Nahzcrap goes to war with a full set of bionics, eavy armour, a slugga and a choppa it;s a hefty 107pts, but he doesn't die and he cuts a bloody swathe through even the toughest marine commanders.
Does it Hurt? How about now?
all right, I'll try again later with a bigger hammer.
I think the mega armour is a good idea but i dont think you can use a bionik arm with it.
A) The 2+ Save isnt 'invaluable'... its practically useless since all other orks must be killed first before the nob makes his saves.Originally Posted by darkhand
Mega-Armoured Orks may not use Bioniks (which includes the Bionik Arm, so it can't get the additional attack).
I was gonna field him with a bodyguard of mega armoured nobs with a cybork body.
