Default 1750 Competitive list

Big Mek/Shokk attack gun - 95pt.
10X Nobz/Painboy, Grot orderly, 8x big choppas 1x power Klaw-300
11xlootas/ 165
30x Slugga boys/ 180
30x Slugga boys/ 180
30x Slugga boys/ 180
30x Slugga boys/ 180
30x Slugga boys/ 180
30x Slugga boys/ 180
Heavy Support
Deff dread/ 2X DCCW Grot Riggers-110

My idea is to put the Big Mek and the lootas in a good piece of cover and pick off anything that is really scary while my army runs down the field. the deff dread is more often then not seen as a big threat so it takes lots of shots that are not going in to my troops. the Nobz Hit Tanks units that my normal boys would have a hard times dealing with.

any ideas???

Nice (lots of painting though!)

My only suggestion would be to stick some Nobs with Power Klaws in with the boyz just to mess up anything hard.

Uh.... hope to Gork (or maybe Mork) that your SAG doesn't blow up and take the Lootas with it.

And where are your Squad Nobs? Where are your special weapons?

As things stand, only your Dred and Nob Mob have a prayer against most armor... and your Boyz will be worthless at anything greater than twelve inches range.

While there's something to be said for a tide of Boyz, I agree... this isn't going to work. A single Predator Destructor will reap a truly absurd total against your army, and won't get so much as a scratch in return in all likelihood. The simple solution is to can the nobz as a unit, and distribute 'em through your squads. Give 'em klaws. Normally, I don't advocate using power fists specifically for going tank hunting, but honestly, you've got enough boyz that you'll get there. Besides, you need something to crack open power armour in close combat besides volume of dice.

I'd also strongly suggest distributing big shootas through the squads, and perhaps since you'll save a TON of points dropping the Nobz as a squad, you might have enough points to bring a zzap! gun or two. Not ideal, but it's something, and a zzap! gun can jack up armour pretty well when you roll decently.
