Default Orc-2000pts

Orks - 7th Ed - 2000pts.
'Eavy Metal!
This looks like some fun Orky time to be had on battle field.
Would have liked to get a burna unit with a mek in the Stompa
but cant seem to make the points fit .
{to join the Loota units}

What do ye think?

CAD #1
HQs:
War Boss: [ Warlord, Da Lucky Stick, 'Eavy Armour, Shoota ]

Troops:
Boyz: {1 units of 19} [ 'Eavy Armour, Shoota ]
Boss Nob:
Boyz: {1 units of 20} [ 'Eavy Armour, Shoota ]
Boss Nob:

Heavy:
Battlewagon: {2 units} [ Lobba, 2 Rokkit Launchers, Boarding Plank ]

Notes!
War Boss joins one of the boyz units and both get in the Battlewagon to thunder
off towards the enemy!
Question: If BW moves at combat speed can it fire all 3 weapons at full BS?

CAD #2
HQs:
Big Mek: [ Shokk Attack Gun, 'Eavy Armour ]

Troops:
Gretchin: {2 units of 10}

Heavy:
Lootas: {2 units of 5}
Mek:

Elite:
Burna: {1 units of 5}
Mek:

Super Heavy:
Stompa: [ Grot Riggers ]

Notes!
Both Loota units, Burna unit and Big Mek go inside the Stompa.
Stompa marches up the field until it close enough and then lets the lootas out
to pour on their firepower. the burna unit spreads out and stands before the Lootas.
The 3 Meks and Big Mek are in there to help heal the Stompa.
Should be a real pain in the butt to knock down { I am hoping }.
The Gretchin are in reserves to come on and try to hold nearest objective.

Question: { for those that use Army Builder }
Why does it still charge you for the Mek in the Lootas and Burnas units?
Even though it should be a free upgrade.

Default Hmm

Thinking of adding in a 3rd 5 man squad of Burna's with another mek in the stompa.
Then changing things around a bit to get the points back to 2000.

Any thoughts?

I was thinking that the three cheap meks would be better than dropping a loota. You could then take the burnas and take three as meks that would give you 6 meks in the stompa. Now if you wanted you could go with a big mek and give him a KFF giving the stompa a 5+ INvul. save and give him the Fixa Uppas to restore hull points. Because hoenstly I don't see the use of the warboss. Anything gets close the two burnas could fry it if the lootas don't shot it to pieces. I am also trying to figure out badrukks roll in the army.

hmm.
You've given me some thoughts.

The Mek you get with the Loota/Burna unit is points cost FREE, correct?
So a unit of 5 Lootas becomes a unit of 4 with a mek.

So in the Stompa I would end up with 3 meks with their tools and the Big mek with his tools.
With 12 hps and the meks I think I would rather the Shokk Attack gun on the Big Mek.

Also thinking of replacing the Kaptin with a plain WarBoss.
Give him the Lucky Stick and join a unit of boyz in the Battlewagon.

Yes do this because really unless you are putting Kaptain with some Flash gitz you aren't getting a lot out of him.

The meks are free that come with the burnas and lootas. The stompa is all about shooting which following that theme lootas also good at shooting so I would rather have a loota over a mek. Plus if you have three HQ you can take three cheap meks. But your army I am just making suggestions. I do like that you gave the mek a kustom mega blasta. I suggest that all the time and people think I'm crazy to not give him a rokkit.

I like the big mek in the stompa with a KFF over a SAG because you now give the stompa a 5+ save before taking armour saves. Next the big mek with SAG could fire himself out of the stompa or worse blow up inside the stompa. Which is why both my big meks with SAG's stay on their own and on bikes with git findas.

Anyway hope it helps

i would have to agree about the kustom mega blasta on a mek, never leave home without that upgrade. it doesn't rely on a BS to hit.

can the stompa hold 3 different units at the same time? i haven't got my codex with me as i'm away at work, i thought it followed the same rules as all transports.

with regards to your question about the BW because it is fast vehicle it can move up to 6" and be considered stationary allowing you to fire all weapons. it can instead move up to 12" and fire one weapon at full BS and others with snap shots.

the BW load out you are using i think would be better with a Kannon ( not the kill kannon just the normal one) that way it gives you the option of krakk or frag). rokkit launcha's are just not that user friendly, only having one shot. i would swap them out for big shootas especially if you are going to snap shot them, as 3 shots compared to 1.

also why the two separate CAD's this can all be put into one. take the BW as dedicated transports and then everything is sweet. otherwise take the first detachment as the great waagghh to get the free hammer of wrath attacks on your charging boyz units.

Is the Warboss and are the nobz armed with power klaws or at least big choppa's? otherwise don't bother with the shoota as you will lose 1 attack for not having a slugga and choppa.

just some food for thought.

Black Templar - 6W 5L
Thousand Sons - 7W 8L
Tzeentch Daemons -4W 4L

No stompas are super heavies so they have a little different transport abilities.

"If a Super-heavy vehicle has a Transport Capacity, then it may transport any number of Infantry units (plus any characters that have joined the units), so long as the total number of models in the transported units do not exceed the vehicle’s Transport Capacity."

So as long as you don't try to put more than 20 models in there you are good.

He has to use two CADS because boys can only take trukks as dedicated transports. Also you don't need to let the lootas out to shoot. They can fire from inside the stompa if I remember right.

thanks for that @morfangdakka good to know about the stompa, unfortunate that it is giving me more reasons to get one though . although the cost for one here in Australia is enough of a deterant at $165. oh well my birthday's coming up soon might be able to talk the wife into one (and the pigs are fuelled and ready for take off).

Yeah my birthday is coming up as well and even though they are cheaper here in the states I think I am going to have to launch a few flying swine before I can get one according to the girlfriend.

The Stompa has 4 firepoints, that mean only 4 of the lootas could fire right?
Or does that mean a unit per firepoint? {Thats probably just wishful thinking }
