Cool deal... Orks, Marines, IG and Chaos are all cool armies. Have you gotten a good look at their Codices yet?

Welcome aboard, mate!

Welcome to the Waaaaggghhh mate, good to have ya. If you want to buy an ork army and start building it right off without really knowing what you're doing (which you wont until you've played the army for awhile) then just buy lots of boxes of boyz. As long as you give the nob model a power klaw, you should be able to use all your boyz when you have more of an idea of what you're doing.

Ooh, you've picked a good time to get into Orks! There's absolutely tons of uber-cool models out so you can't really go far wrong, so long as you have the ubiquitous Boyz. Hitty 'n' shooty 'n' mean. Good times! Also, try to find a cool opponent to start with. You'll enjoy yourself and learn!

1) need lots of boyz always a good start to any proper waagh
2) you can get the generic one but making your own is so much more fun.
3) Kommando's are cool with Snikrot as their leader with a couple of burnas thrown in they can take out armor that lurks near the rear.
4) I love mega armor Nobz but with the low leadership and their high points cost. Good chance they are going to die or run away before they do anything but they are still cool models to have and play with for fun.

yeah its just too bad there arent any new nob models out yet the trukks and bikes are really nice tho i think iam gonna buy a battleforce as a start thinking of a commander but i dont like the standard warboss with chainaxe or sttack squig, i like thraka, but its expensive and also not rly distinctive, so would buying thraka as a warboss model be worth it?

also how are the new lootas doing i like to have lots of heavy weapons and big shootas to gun down infantry and some rokkit launches for some antiarmor capability, when the mega armored nobs get close they could easily chew up a predator or something, with the warboss maybe even a landraider.
