OrkyRolla2000

It's been awhile since I played. I'm kind of rusty. I'll be playing mechanized IG first. What's your opinion on the use of Meganobz in this list? I'm still on the fence.

I hate to say it, but this is a bad list. It's far too small to be competitive and against any decent shooting, at least some of those wagons are going down, cover save be dammed. Once that happens and your boyz are footslogging, your opponent is free to focus on the bikers and deal with your force piecemeal.

Scrap the Bikers and the Meganobz and throw in some warbuggies with rokkit launchas, add another mob of twenty boyz in a wagon as well as some trukk boyz and reduce the Loota squads to five or six in size. After that add in what you want with the points you have left.

I like using squads of 8-10 Lootas; I find that squads of 5 or 6 don`t do a damn thing with ork shooting, and most people shoot at them regardless of size because of their range and excellence in poping light armor.

But there`s not nearly enough boys in this list. I played in a tourney a couple of weeks ago, and at 1500 points, I had over 100 boys. The only thing I had trouble with was that my army was too slow at times because everything was footsloggin`.

Thanks for the advice. OK I'm not on the fence anymore with the Meganobz. I canned them. I've had good luck in the past with Nob Bikers, so I'll keep 'em in the list. Same with the Lootas in the 8-12 range. Warboss biker now leads the Nobz making them more effective. More boyz and I took your advice and added some Warbuggies. Now I need to find some Warbuggies. If it works out I'll roll up with BWs, Boyz, KFF and flank with the faster elements.

Drop all of the Big shootas in your list (other than 1 on each wagon) and give your bikers Cybork Bodies.

The Shoota/Skorcha Kombi-weapon on your biker boss is a wast of points.

Run your lootas in units of 15 or 5, 15 will have you the number to ensure you kill what you are shooting at and 5 will keep vehicles shaken. Units if of 10 will just fall somewhere in the middle of the two.

Oops, brain fart. Thanks again. I totally overlooked Cybork this time. 2 Big Shootas on the wagons prevent the immobilized via weapon destroyed thingy. The list was changed accordingly. Had an extra 21 pts. Spent it on Ammo Runts, Grot orderly, and a Shoota/Skorcha.

Looks like a solid list now. Biker boss is a better option than ghaz imo, being able to split from the nob bikers and charge down a vehicle with his PK can catch many people off guard.
I personally prefer deffkoptas over buggies for alpha striking vehicles (think Chimeras - glancing on 3s? if you charge them with the buzzsaw) but thats personal preference as the buggies are awesome to.
Shoota boyz or slugga boyz? Id probably go for shoota but again thats preference. Using the battlewagons for drive-bys can be really effective.
If you didnt want to take the nob bikers (although I personally would) consider a large unit of burna boyz in a battlewagon maybe?
