g'day all
Just a quick question regarding orkz as i am just starting out with them and slowly building a mob and was just looking for opinions on whether it is better to keep the boyz in groups of 20 or slightly larger for example whether to have 4 units of 20 or three bigger units any thoughts??

I think rule of thumb on squad size is

20+ for footsloggers

or

Fill transports

so depends are you footslogging them or meching them out?

I would strongly recommend always running them in one of the 4 ways i have listed.
This maximizes their effectiveness.
I always try to get the squads of Boyz perfect in preference to other units. They are the backbone of the army after all.
