hey,
been trying to think of improvements to my current ork list for a while now and this is what i came up with. it basically gets rid of the wasted points i had in footslogging boyz when my main style is mechanised:



Warboss: warbike, power klaw, bosspole= 130
7 Nob Warbikers: painboy. waaagh! banner.
3 power klaws= 410

Big Mek: kustom forcefield, mega blasta= 100
6 Lootas: 3 meks; mega blastas= 90 x2= 180
Battlewagon: kilkannon, 2 big shootas= 160

20 Boyz: nob; big choppa, bosspole= 140
Battlewagon: deffrolla, 2 big shootas= 120

20 Boyz: nob; big choppa, bosspole= 140
Battlewagon: deffrolla, 2 big shootas= 120

Total= 1500


many opinions as possible please, including if you think its ok xD

He needs Cybork.

Consider giving them all different wargear for wound-allocation purposes. Throw in a couple of Big Choppas, couple of Scorchas, and a Bosspole.

Big Mek: kustom forcefield, mega blasta= 100
Id drop the Megablaster. Keep him with the Boyz.

6 Lootas: 3 meks; mega blastas= 90 x2= 180
Run them all as normal Lootas. The Deffguns are far better than any of the other weapon options.

Battlewagon: kilkannon, 2 big shootas= 160
I dont feel that the Lootas need this vehicle. They are only a unit of 6.

20 Boyz: nob; big choppa, bosspole= 140
Battlewagon: deffrolla, 2 big shootas= 120
Nob needs a Power Klaw.

20 Boyz: nob; big choppa, bosspole= 140
Battlewagon: deffrolla, 2 big shootas= 120
Nob needs a Power Klaw.
Consider dropping the unit down to 19 to fit the Mek in here.

Total= 1500

Looks like a good start.
Consider making the changes above.
Perhaps drop the Lootas Battlewagon, and use the points to get more Lootas and perhaps a unit of 10-19 Gretchin to hold a home objective.

You can use the 3rd Battlewagon when you get to 1750+.

If your really keen to use the 3rd Battlewagon, then you would have to consider dropping the Nob Bikers.

I made up up a list implementing some of the changes by KOC and trying to keep it as close to your original as possible. This list did not come about without some compromises. Nob bikers are pretty pricey for a 1500 pt. list. I kitted them out for wound allocation for increased survivablility, but they are much more comfortable in a 1750 pts. and above. I usually keep my KFF naked, especially in a BW, but to make this list I replaced the Boyz Nob with the kitted out Big Mek. This list now has 4 troop choices though. Should help in those objective games.

NobBikerBW1500

Drop all the upgrades off the Big Mek.
Give the unit of 19 Boyz a Nob with PK/BP.

If this isnt possible within 1500, then drop a Loota to make the changes, and spend remaining points on a Big Choppa or 2 for the Nob Bikers.
