Hi! I haven't played kill team in awhile but In my opinion I would take one nob out then spend the points on boys so almost doubling the amount of boys you have. also mean you can have the nobz in with them to pack a punch on termies?

Hm, if they're taking lots of terminators then it might be best to just take as many Boyz as you can and swamp them with lots of attacks. Powerfists will destroy your nobs with instant death. Though, you only have 20 boyz.. best bet I'd say is to still swarm them and take advantage of their initiative 1 powerfists and hope they roll a 1 (which is likely, if you can get odds of 5-6 boyz against one terminator).

Lootas might be a good idea as they can sit quite far out of range of the terminators and force them to roll lots of saves, so they're definitely an option worth considering.

If there's one thing I've learned, it's to never underestimate ork shooting. I've lost a fair few games because of the sheer number of shots being put out by orks.

what do you mean nobs get killed by instant death from the powerfists? i thought they just got instant death from s8 guns. the 'To wound' chart says that s8 wounds t4 on a 2+

Plus anyway your right about the ork numbers. I should have played my strengths....."Numbers" the nobs were pumelled. its better to get the odds against the termies.




Orks have4 attacks........ 2 atttacks + 1 for assault + 1 for choppas and sluggas. nobs have 5.. 3 + 1 for assault + 1 for choppas and sluggas. BUT you can only get 10 nobs to a squad. but with the boys you can get up to 30


10 nobs = 50 attacks
30 orks = 120 attacks
(just assume they are all in range of attacking and have assaulted and they all have choppas and sluggas)

Powerefist are powerweapons that double users str, Marines are Str 4 so Str 8 hits, but at init 1.

30 Nobs would be a pricey unit

Double strength is always instant death AFAIK. Frankly if you go horde heavy then your worst enemy is the storm bolters you'll be facing, they'll really lay down the hurt on your boyz.

Double strength isn't always instant death. Strength double their toughness is instant death. An imperial guardsman with a powerfist would strike at S6, which wouldn't be instant death against a marine with T4. It would however be instant death against toughness 3.
