Ok so a bit of back story for you, I was out shopping for new shoes last week and my son made me detour into a Games Workshop place, I thought I was safe as I knew there wouldn't be a video game in sight.. oh how wrong was I..

We walked out with the Assault on Black Reach starter kit, the staff were great btw, guess they saw me coming though as in the course of the week, I've been back a few times, and so has my wife. My son has claimed the beakies so I get the orks. We've now expanded both armies to be 1500 points by adding the battle force kits and others (lots of others for the orks) all without ever playing a game (probably not a smart thing) though the youtube video's are kinda helpful.

So this is what I have come up with, how badly did I do?

Also be prepared for alot of orks to die. And i mean the majority of the orks will die over the course of the game so get alot of them

We should try and keep to the point here, critiquing his army setup. Your army seems to have a lot of everything without much consistency. Is the battlewagon suppose to serve as a transport, and if so, who is it carrying (I can only assume the nobs). Where will your hq units sit (SAG significantly lowers the range of the loota unit if he sits there, plus your mob rule won't help for long unless they're the unit in the battlewagon). The strategy with an army this diverse is going to be extremely important. Given at least part of this army is foot slogging, your fast element is going to be alone at the enemy lines for a turn or two.

More boyz, and make all the wartrakks big shootas. Well having all of them flamers would be pretty bad ass and destroy hordes but you'd probably have to do some tailoring. Just make them all the same and try not to pick rokkits.

Okay after reading some comments and having another think I have revised the list if you would be so kind as to take another look.

My plan was to sit the SAG with the Lootas and put the Nobz and Warboss in the battlewagon, using the bikerz to draw fire off the battlewagon by getting into close combat fast or staying at range and peppering with fire.

I've removed the warbuggies to get more boyz in the mix, added a boss pole to the biker nob as I had missed that, added a squig to the warboss for my PK attacks. I've reduced from 3 to 2 koptas to get the points for boyz and split them off into separate units as I was told that was a good idea.

You should probably attempt to uniquely equip each nob in your mobs with wargear so you can play with wound allocation. You can find more information about this rule in your rule book, I think its page 26?
