Shred Gob's Boys, 1,500pt list, please give feedback

HQ - Warboss Shred Gob - Warbike, Power Claw, Kombi Skorcha, Bosspole, Attack Squig, Cybork Body
160pts

Troops - 4 Nobs - Warbikes, Painboy Upgrade, Grot Orderly, Cybork Bodies, Kombi Skorcha, 3x Power Claw, Waaagh Banner, 1x Boss Pole 345pts

Troops - 30 Boys including Nob - Boss Pole, Power Claw, 3x Big Shootas
235pts

Fast Attack - 14 Storm Boys plus Zagstruk
235pts

Elite - 6 TankBusta Boys including Nob - Boss Pole, Power Claw, 2x Squig Bombs, 2x Tank Hammers
140pts

Elite - 9x Kommandos plus Snikrot - 2x Burna
205pts

Elite - 9x Kommandos including Nob - Power Claw, Boss Pole, 2x Burna

Totaling at 1,498 teeth, please fellow warlords and commanders alike, give me your input. I love units that are in the enemy quarters quick time and also love units that have good customizing capabilities. This army could be altered for purposes of taking objectives by losing a unit of Kommandos for a unit of grots, though i prefer lots of in your face units. thanks for checking out my list,

Shred Gob

The 4 nob bikers aren't enough. You need more or none.
Drop the nob bokers and add 30 more boyz. Make all of your boys shootas if they are foot sloggin, they are the best choice for that strategy.

That leaves ~75 points. Spend that on more stormboys - get as close to 20 as you can!

Isn't the best strategy to cc the shooty units and shoot the cc units. If i were to have lots of shoota boys, then i wouldn't get the extra +1 attack per model in close combat. My tactic would be to tie up the enemies units with my disturbance forces (Kommandos & StormBoyz) and then have my foot sloggers (real threat) creep up to the enemy. They either deal with the immediate threat and get overwhelmed later or they ignore the very big immediate threat caused by the disturbance units. My Warboss would benefit from having the nobs as meat shields as he can lay wounds on them rather than himself. Their goal is to anti-tank or hit defense lines hard and fast. Four power clawed boys on wheels with cybork bodies and feel no pain should be enough for that task no? I would however benefit from a Big Mek's force field cover save of 5+ for my sloggers, and give him a Power Claw and Kombi Skorcha for additional close quarters pain

I removed the Grots mob, lost two StormBoyz and four Kommandos and replaced them with a Big Mek with Kustom Force Field and Boss Pole to benefit the Boys mobs. As well as this i added a Power Claw and Kombi Skorcha to aid the pain they would be bringing. Please give feedback, thanks

Your HQ - Big Mek with Kustom Force Field, Boss Pole, Power Claw, Kombi Skorcha is not legal. The KFF is a weapons choice, meaning that you have to many weapons. You need to drop the Kombi Skorcha. One other option would be to replace the PC with a Burna / Attack Squig combo for extra power weapon hits in cc :-)

Yes i have heard of this option, thank you for pointing out my error regarding the BigMek, That makes 105pts if the BigMek has KFF, Kombi Skorcha and Attack Squig

bring another full mob of da boys, run 2 more nobs (I like 3pk, 2 big choppa, and a painboss with needles), run cybork bodies on all of em (should be exactly 400pts), and drop either the storm boys or kommando's squad. Try to fill whichever of these two squads ya dont drop, or its not very useful

"When cities burn and armies turn
to flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry, 'tis best to fly!',
and fight another day;

But warriors know it is in their marrow
when they die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost
than not to have fought at all."
