So, I'm getting back into the swing of things and a bit new to Orks. I've received quite a few to get me going but I need a little direction. So far I'm looking at:

HQ
Warboss - PK, BP, CB, bike
Bigmek - KFF

Elites
Lootas x10 - Mek Big Shoota, oiler x1

Troops
Nob - PK, BP
Boyz x25 - shootas

Nob - PK, BP
Boyz x24 - slugga/choppa

Runtherder x1
Gretchins x19

Fast Attack
Warbike Nob - PK, BP
Warbike x4

Warboss hanging out with the bikes and flanking, the Big Mek helping out over the troops, and the Lootas doing their thing for anti-tank etc...

It seems small to me, but rolls in at 998 pts...

So after some tweaking this is what I'm coming up with:

HQ
Warboss on bike w/ PK, BP, CB

Big Mek w/ KFF

Elites
Lootas x8

Fast Attack
Nob on bike w/ PK, BP

Bikers x3

Troops

Nob w/ PK, BP
30x shootas

Nob w/ PK, BP
20x shootas
10x sluggas

Runtherd
17x gretchin

Would it be necessary for the Nob on bike to carry a bosspole if the Warboss is already carrying? If not the points would go back to making it a full load of 19 gretchin.

If they're used as a flanking unit I'm figuring them getting into the fray a move early if not at the same time as the sloggin' ones. But another option is to reduce the unit sizes and go the battlewagon route like so:

HQ
Big Mek w/ bike, PK, CB, BP

Big Mek w/ KFF

Elites
Lootas x6

Troops
Nob w/ PK, BP
Boyz x18 sluggas
BW w/ Rolla, big shoota x2

Nob w/ PK, BP
Boyz x18 shootas
BW w/ Ram, big shoota x2

Runtherd
gretchin x17

Fast Attack
Nob w/ bike, PK, BP
Bikers x2

999 pts total

Everything's moving 'cept for the lootas and gretchin...

It's what I have at hand, but nothing's stopping me from procuring the needed figures for the best list at 1000 pts.

After playing around with numbers and so forth you're first list is almost like what I wound up coming up with too. How does it fair in tournaments tactics-wise?
