Default Orks homebrew fixes

Hi guys, i'd like to share the homebrew fixes we are testing in my group for orks.
Nothing ground breaking, basically we are trying to add utility to some underused units and options overall the codex.
Let me know what do you think:

First of all...
THE MOB RULE: the number of models in the unit can be used to determine the Ld of every model in the unit. (eg. 9 ork boyz plus a painboy, all have Ld 10). If the unit is comprsed by more than 10 models, the unit automatically pass Morale and Rout tests.
(basically the old version, with the "no fearless spam" caveat in mind.)
BOSS POLE: reroll failed Morale Tests and adds +1 to combat resolution. in case of multiple boss poles in a unit or in the same melee, only one counts. (less useful for morale, more useful for bashing 'umies)

Then, equipment tweak:
Cybork body: the model has a fu*ing 6+ Invulnerable save

Plus, units option tweaks:
Ork Warboss: if not equipped with mega armour can take ONE of the following

-Da Biggest+1 Wound, 10 pts
-Da 'ardest +1 Tough ., 25 pts

The Boss Nob can have ONE of the following

-Da Biggest+1 Wound, 10 pts
-Da 'ardest +1 Tough ., 15 pts

-Any model can have Cybork Body for 5 pts each
-the entire unit can have warbikes at +20 pts per model

-Any model can have Cybork Body for 5 pts each

the unit can have Outflank +2 pts per model

Lastly, unit modifications

Deff Dread:
-4 Attacks base


killa Kans, Battlewagon:

Captin Baddruk,:
-Has 3 wounds

Captin Zagstruk:
-Has T 5

Burna Boyz:
They have Welder armour (Sv5+, Sv3+ against flamer weapons, as per BRB definition of "flamer weapons" )
-Mad arsonists: Burna Boyz can fire burnaz on enemy units even if this causes hits to allied models and even if the target unit is engaged in melee. When performing a "wall of death", every 6 rolled to determine how many hits the charging unit suffers, causes 1 extra hit.

Flash Gitz:
-Have 'evy armour (4+)
Kaptin can exchange gitfinda and snazzgun with a Klaw for free

Warbuggyes, Skorchas and Wartrakk:
-can transport up to 10 grots and 1 runtherd

Units that still are underused due to shitty performance and need some tweaks:


The Legion of Perfects Project

My luminescence is unparalleled for I am luminosity itself, all light is but a shadow of my silhouette
