Heres another of the listed I cooked up for review, this one revolves around the idea of replacing Nobs in the boy’s mobs with meks, who all will mount up in the wagons. Along with the Mini Death star of a boss, mad dok grotsnik and the mega nobs in another wagon.
Basic idea as always with battlewagon mobs, rush up with some form of refused line, hit one part of the enemy line with as much force as can be mustered while grots baby sit some objective or just hide either or.

These were all made on BattleScribe quite a decent app for writing up list on mobile, haven’t used the computer version much but seems to function quite well for you list building at home.

1. Not a huge fan of Grotsnik - FnP is great, Fearless even better, but if the Warboss is in the unit already for Ld9, I think I'd rather have the 3 extra Meganobz you could buy for the price of Grotsnik. Guy's pricey - I'd drop him down to a regular Painboy, and add two more Meganobz to the squad.

2. I'd be tempted to drop the Buggy squadrons and Grots, which would give you the points to get an extra Battlewagon full of Boyz which would also fulfil the requirement for the Blitz Brigade, which is *really* nice to have. I'd also try and fit a KFF Big Mek in there somewhere if I went down that route, but might not be feasible.

Both buggies and grots i believe are some useful units but are just included in these lists for that extra utility they provide for certain situations.

As to grotsnilk I use him for more than the feelno pain, the fearless and the main one that I plan to use are his upgrade of Rampage to give D3 more attacks to each member of his unit if outnumbered so possibly a lot of strength 9 attacks.

though the idea for the blitz brigade is an interesting one to investigate for larger games.

I like the list but I'm not sure about the skorcha buggies. I think their short range while deadly is limiting in what they can do. I think rokkits would be more flexible in the army and add punch maybe keep one or two buggies as skorchas.

I don't know the Grotsnik rules so can't comment on him (potential rampage on that unit is pretty appealing though) but otherwise I really like it as a whole. A few different weapons on the warbuggies sounds like a good idea, weapons with more range because I imagine if I were playing this list I'd have two or three providing cover to the side/rear armour of battlewagons rather than getting as close as possible to shoot skorchas

I hope they make some new models for those really dated ork fast attack vehicles
