Just a few questions as I plan out my Ork army.
1.Can Big Mek's take Warboss bodyguard, in a Speed Freaks army?
2.Whats the best way to get around the "No-alike-weapons-combos" for a Big Mek's bodyguard to get the most burnas?
3.How do you get troops into a Battle Wagon enough to use Bolt-On Big Shootas in Speed Freaks?
Danke in advance, if anyone can assist.
Edit: Oh, and one more thing! How many models can a Wartruk carry?
Edit2: Oh, one MORE thing... Stikkbomb Chuckas on Buggies and Traks, worth it? I've not used Tank Shock, as I don't play vehicle heavy armies (though I've wanted to, hence Speed Freaks). But throwing them on basically every vehicle, and there are alot, seems I get a ton of checks, which someone is bound to fail eventually.

So for the first question, no, a big mek can not take a warboss bodyguard, he can only take his mek boy retinue.
For number 2, to get the most burnas you can use burna, burna/slugga, burna/choppa, burna/klaw, burna/kustom slugga. In the ork faq though, they mention that a blastier slugga is not different from a shootier slugga, they are both considered "kustom" sluggas. With that in mind, you still have a good way of getting as many burnas as possible.
For three I don't really know what you're asking. Any on board passenger can use a BOBS, they just need to be in the vehicle to fire.
Wartruks can carry 10 models (includes squig/grot wargear as models)
For the chukkas, I've never really used them as I usually throw skorchas on my truks and having an enemy fall back defeats the purpose. For traks I find a really good combo to be rokkit squads and skorcha squads. For the skorchas throw on spikes and blades. If the enemy survives the skorcha blast and attempts to assault they'll get pretty torn up. The blades inflict a hit on every miss in CC, if your traks have moved the 12-13" they can only be hit on 6's. That means a lot of counterattacks.
Hope this helps!

Thanks, that does help. What I mean by the Battle Wagon is HOW to get enough people on board to actually fire the BOBS, seeing as everyone in the army starts mounted up and the only way to get one with troops in it is using it as a vehicle for a warboss/big mek
You can put ard boyz and skarboyz in battle wagons too so they can shoot the bolt on big shootas.
