I have three lobbas but don't use them much. I like killa kans and dreads for my heavy support.
I beat Umie armies by concentrating anti-tank fire on one or two vehicles a turn, which usually leaves them as scrap. While swamping the enemy with 30-60 grots [meat shield], and assaulting with stormboyz, skarboyz, and truk boyz.
I use a big mob of Orks armed with rokkits and a nob to soak up the ordinance templates or in bigger games a bommer to take some more of the incomming auto cannon and heavy bolter fire.
I use the truks to rush in 25" in my first turn. Usually use 2-3 truks depending on size of the army. If they get popped thats ok, enuf of the truk boyz will usually survive and engage the enemy infantry in CC. Try to target heavy weapon squads if you can.
While the enemy is busy trying to figure out who to shoot at you rush your stormboyz in to wreck his deployment zone, take out heavy weapon squads and infantry with reckless glee.
Initially try to set up some line of sight blocking terrain near the middle of the battlefield, along a flank/table edge is ideal for your stormboyz path to glory. This will help shield your stormboyz during the crucial 1st turn when they are in the middle of the table if your grots and truks diversion doesn't work.
Good luck wiv da Umies...WAAAGH!
