Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi, I am going to play speed freaks and I wondered if you guys could give me some advice on the units to take. I am planning to go 1500 points
I've had great success with loads of trukkboys equipped with a burna and accompanied by a nob with powerclaw.
It is very effective, but it gets kinda boring after a while.
The scorcher is also a must. A fast moving heavy flamer for only 40 points
And dont forget a couple of guntrukks with zzap guns for tankbusting.
Warbikes can be expensive but they're not only cool models, their smokescreen effect can be pretty helpful if you use them as shields for a trukk or two. I think 6 bikes, including Nob, comes out around 200+pts which is sizable for a 1500pt army but I think very worth it.
I would stay away from a battlewagon, or take a minimum of 2 or more (which makes it even more costly in smaller armies), as a single battlewagon is expensive and fragile, not a good combo.
Personally I always take Stormboyz, but I've always loved them. Can't go wrong with the Skorcha, as previously mentioned. I keep trying to take buggies w/ mega-blastas as well, but they always seem to blow up after 2 or 3 turns of ineffective shooting (at least for me).
Trukkboyz are great. A couple zzap guns mounted on trukks also give you a tremendous punch and you don't kill krew when they overheat which makes them even better!
you got to get loads o' bikes, now you need loads! get more bikes! you think you av nuff, yah dont, and remembah, da red uns go fasta!
hey gorblitz, wasnt there an ereta sayin yah can only take one looted vehicle an' one battlewagon for the freeks?Originally posted by Gorblitz@Jan 3 2004, 11:34

if you take the battle waggon as a heavey suport choise(sp?) its 0-1 yeah. BUT, you can take battlewagons as transports for a variaty of things, making it possible to have up to 7 battlewaggons! *drools thinking of an ork armored company*
