Lootas jump in the BW without the 'Rolla.
Warboss and Big Mek jump in with Nobz.
Nobz count as Troops thanks to the Warboss.
Taking one of the BW as a dedi, allowing 4 in the army.

Was considering dropping a Boy from each troop, and splitting up the Warboss and Big Mek into those squads. Basic idea of doing this would be to split the target priority. Rather than giving them an obvious target with all of the nasties in the one vehicle, it would give them a tough choice of which one to shoot. The more tough choices you give the opponent, the more mistakes they can make.

What does the H-O community think?

Just a quick extra bit of info...

I have plenty more Nobz if more would be suitable.
Also have 15 Burna Boyz i could run in a BW.
Also have Trukks, and a LOT more Boyz.

Could run 15 Lootas in one, 15 Burnas in one, and 20 Boyz in one, then have a small unit of Nobz in a 4th, then put the Boyz in Trukks hiding behind the 3 BW's and KFF (with the Lootas BW staying in my deployment zone making a mess of light vehicles).

Do you really need a Nob unit that killy? 6-7 Nobs with 2 PKs would work just as well for a lot less.

Lootas in a BW is a good way to get those 15 bodies where you want them, but one bad shaken result makes them useless. Also, only 1 AT unit? Mech loves you.

Adding some support elements like Buggies and Grotz would also help give you more flexibility with movement, help against tanks and scoring.

Or would i be better off dropping the Burna Boyz for another identical unit of Boyz, and use the extra 20 points on a 7th Nob (dropping a couple of other upgrades to squeeze him in).

Or should i drop the Nobz squad all together as well, and just run 3 BW and a Trukk or 2?


The combination of Deffrollas, PK's, and Lootas make some useful though unreliable AT.
I have a crapload of Deffkoptas too, but never really seen them as being very effective. Only S8 means they are only good against light vehicles, and the Lootas tend to do a better job.
