I am attempting to get a new player into 40K that does not care about fluff and is simply looking for a fun and enjoyable hobby. Fun and enjoyable to this particular gentlemen also means an easy to remember rule set. Well anyone that war games knows that is a particularly difficult demand. After some thought I concluded Orks would be the right fit for this individual. I have concocted a list that should be fun and relatively easy to play. Please critique from a leisurely gamer POV.

Troop
10x Nobz; 3x PKs; Pain Boy
Battle Wagon w/ Red PJ, Deff Rolla, Boarding Plank

I could only make this particular list simpler by taking the 90 points of Pain Boys and rolling them into a Warboss with PK. So what do you think? Thirty W2 models with 6+, 4+ FNP saves; the best anti-tank Orks have (deff rolla); three AV 14 transports; supa Waaagh!; and plenty of Power Klaws!
Is this the type of list that is easy enough for a begin to play in friendly games while providing the level of fun and difficulty to encourage the full embrace of 40k?

Then run two warbosses so you can take two squads of nobs as troops. Honestly this list would not last long against most list now that almost everything is a mech list everyone is getting good at poping landraiders and battlewagons.

its true that players are more used to seeing AV 14 across the table but they still have to do it by turn 2. ;)
