my only real critiques of the list is the lack of regular boyz, two 10 man units isn't really going to get you far also you could save points with your grot units you only need 1 runt herder in the 15 grot unit and the one with 20, drop it down to 19 and then you will only need 1 runt herder for that unit as well that would free up some points there.
but as you said you just want to play the game for fun and this lookis pretty fun and it will suprise heaps of players as it isn't a standard sort of a list for Orks (that is if we have a standard sort of a list)
thanks for the feedback.
i have not been active enough on this site but when i have been
people are so cool.
about the boyz, yeah, i agree.
i can cut the nobz squad down to three.
i can also remove the killcannon and two big shootas from the battlewagon.
together, that is about a hundred points.
for 60 points, I can add 10 boyz.
do you recommend adding to make one unit of 20?
or adding one more unit of 10?
i thought about making one unit into shoota boyz,
as they look like it.
I also wanted to get some stormboyz in there.
so, my initial thinking was to spend that on stormboyz
and use the leftovers to add a few boyz to the squads.
as the looted wagon can carry 12, i figured on adding a couple boys there.
maybe add one to the other unit.
normal boyz are few,
but there are a number of units of various flavors
instead of a green tide on wheels.
this may be the most "competitive"
but i hate it.
would hate to play it, and would hate to play against it.
note that i have not a single truck.
and also will never own a wraithknight.
as for the grot herders rule,
i have not played 40k since 2005 or 6 maybe,
and have never put together an ork army before.
i guess i read the rules wrong.
the codex says that you must take an additional runtherd
"for every ten additional Gretchin".
so i took that to mean
11-20 => the first additional 10
21-30 => the second additional ten.
so, after ten grots, one must have 2 herders.
and so on.
actually, i have a difficult time reading the text and understanding it a different way.
on the interpretation that you are offering,
and it turns out to be the normal reading, as i have just checked da webz,
one requires an additional herder only at 20.
and, as the squad limit size is 30,
it seems a better way to write the rule would have been:
"with 20 or more grots, an additional herder is required."
but actually, it is only with 30, the maximum number, that an additional herder is required.
which seems to be the way that people read the rule,
but makes absolutely no sense at all. none.
but, anyways, if this is the rule,
then you are right,
and i guess the thing to do is to move those orks into the other squads.
or, maybe split the grots into three objective babysitting units of 10 each.
of course, they are fragile and will run.
but, there are more of them that will have to run.
and being smaller may be easier to hide...
does anyone else understand this rule differently?
