im thinking of buying these boyz:
13 Plastic Ork Boyz in sprue+19 coated
i want to make a bad moonz themed army (500pts), is it a good idea to make 16 boys CC (them is called sluggas, right?) and 16 ranged (da shootas, right?).
My question is: should i kit them out like this? it sounds orkish and the large band of shootas sounds like the bad moons, but is it viable?
i just changed my mind, having 10 flash gitz and 20 sluggas, how does that sound? i'd have 2 extra boyz to cut up or convert to something else

Just two problems with that.
1) Bad Moons MUST take Flash Gitz for ALL their compulsory Troops choices. It's part and parcel of a unit being a Core choice.
2) The scary thing about Bad Moons is that all those Flash Gitz running around mean you can realistically have an Ork army that wins by SHOOTING. Of course, it would be able to hold its own and then some against any horde army (Flash Gitz are STILL as combat skilled as any proper Ork, for this Codex at least) but with that many storm bolter wannabes, you WILL hit something for once. That is, if you're using More Dakka, and I don't see a use in a shoota if it doesn't have More Dakka.
isn't it a choice? like normal boyz OR flashgitz?

aaaah, i see! ok, thx every1!
i'm gonna start with 500pts, slugga boyz*2 + a boss, ill add da flash gitz later!
why sluggas? for bad moonz their an 0-1 choice (their only good for their massive #'s anyway). either make them flash gitz or if you do want some CC then make them 'ard boyz, their only a few more pts and can save vs bolter fire, though 'ard boyz are elites.just changed my mind, having 10 flash gitz and 20 sluggas, how does that sound? i'd have 2 extra boyz to cut up or convert to something else
hive fleet of tyranids-2000pts
bad moonz orks-1500ptz
Orcs clan Red 'Eads-1000pts
How about making them all flash gitz?
Recipe for a Badmoon army that can deal with anything.
1 Make a large flashgitz mob, all armed with upgraded dakka shootas.
2 Bung in a few rokkit launchas and a power claw for the boss.
3 Repeat until all unit slots are filled.
They should be able to outshoot most units, beat most units in close combat (orks are ard!) and can do all this while on the move! (all weapons are Assault) It means you can continually hose wimpy enemies as you advance towards them, or keep your distance and hose nasty beasties as they try to reach you (Nids, Khorne Beserkers, etc).
If you are short on dakka-upgraded guns for your models, they can be made by glueing two tubes about 1cm long (cotton bud handles are good) onto the front of a slugga, for a simple double barrelled SMG. Rokkit launchas can easily be made with a section of a Bic disposable pen glued to the shoulder.
If you drop a shell on your foot an it don't urt, your shoota aint big enough!
Have to say it, I was really lazy with my More Dakka shootas - just added more ammo to the wielder and/or a gunsight to the gun, and painted the thing Mithril Silver - a colour that NO normal Ork weapon would stay coloured for long - to show that it was real special like. I made the Rokkit Launcha for my Trukk Boyz (yes, I started Bad Moons & Speed Freeks simultaneously, more fool me) out of a shoota barrel cut up and glued to another shoota to show that it fires rokkits instead, but the used biro tube idea should work well too.
I'd go with just a Choppa for the boss, as it's cheaper and still gives him a VERY scary close combat edge thanks to Power of the Waaagh! (Initiative WHAT?!). Since my metal Nob came with 'eavy armour, I decided to give his shoota the Blasta kustom job - makes the 'eavy armour make sense AND gives the unit some more MEQ capping ability. Also allows me to paint it gold so I can say he fires the Golden Gun at an enemy unit
i've decided i'm going for 500pts to begin with, 1 boss + 2x20 sluggas, they are going to be painted in da badmoon collahs, but no flashgitz (yet).
I wanted to make a true badmoon gitz army, but decided against it: i'm afraid that under the new codex flashgitz will only be 0-1 and not a troop choice anymore, not even through the special character or the chapter approved rules... so i will be getting gitz, i'll just have to confine myself to 1 unit of em
