Default first 40k army ever

Like the title says i am staring my first army and could use lots of help. So to get me and a buddy of mine started we got 2 black reach set and split the armys i getting the orks. now i own 2 Ork Warboss, 40 Ork Boyz, 10 Ork Nobz and 6 Ork Deffkoptas. i was hoping that some one could point me into the right direction for making this into a playable force. not really sure how big of a point list i am looking to make (thinking of around 2k) but would just really like to get just what i need to get what i got now up and running till i can get a bigger force together. thanks for any help!
Dustin

So far this isnt bad. I would advise putting the 10 Nobz with your warboss and putting them in a trukk. *Hint* Battleforce. Then you have a really Hard Hitting force in the Trukk. I would give your Warboss and the Nobz squad Ard armour to make them more survivable. Use the 20 boyz from the Battleforce with the AoBR boyz to make two squads of 30. Then put the Deffkoptas in two seperate units of 3 until u get other Fast Attack choices when u should consolidate the squad into 1 squad of 5. Kick out the other Warboss though. U dont want identical HQ choices.
Hope this is of help. If you want to know where to go from this point, Private Message me and I wil continue.

would it be worth getting the bikes if i am running the DeffKoptas? are the trukks any good or would i just be asking for a unit of mine to get blown up along with the turck?

I dont know much about orks, but bikes sound good. if you could get them, i'd go with Wartrakks and/or warbuggys than just going all trukks. like I said, I dont know much about orks. i'm a SM and nid player. had the Assault on Black Reach set, but I traded my Orks for more Nids. got quite a bit of nids for the orks too. hope this could help you out a bit

i dont know too much about orks, but i know for a fact that you shouldn't be posting individual wargear costs on the website. There could be legal trouble with GW if you do it. Instead you should just list the wargear used and have the points totaled up at the end. This way there is no trouble at all, i'll give you a little example:

Ork Warboss =100
power klaw
shoota/skorcha kombi-weapon
bosspole
'eavy armour

Welcome to Heresy and good luck with those greenskins

Well you should take a read through this thread. How to Build an Ork Army This will help answer several questions.

For you list you may want to remove the second boss and add some elites to the army like lootas or something heavy like a battlewagon to add some punch to the army or you can always go with the old stand by of more boyz.

Good luck with the army building.

i have been reading that guide. lol there is lots and lots of info there (a little to much for some one that dose not know anything to start with). i have a few questions that come to mind that i really could use some help whit.

what is a good # on nob units?
why is it not good to have 2 warbosses?
what would better help my army move up to the 1500 point range?
would it be good to mix a unit of bikers with the Deffkoptas? or should i just phase them out for bikes?
lol and last just using the modes i have does my list look to be a ok built 1k army and where could it improve with out buy any more models?
