Thoughts? Not sure if the Buggies or 7 more lootas would be better.

-GWvsJohn


Well GWvsJohn sent me this a while ago but I wasn't yet done with the Orky articles so I've posted it now. He sent two lists but said this was better so will look at it.

It's certainly taken the principles which I expounded to make a good list and rather than use Kanz and BM like I did, he has opted for more BWs and a Nob Biker group. I think it's a fairly decent list considering the points dropped into the Nob Bikers. I think one less guy and it could still work. It's not that scary as it needs wiping out and with the ability to put Wazdakka and a Warboss in the other Warbiker squads, you've got 3 capable combat groups coming at you. The only change I'd make to the list is make the 2x15 lootas 3x10. Whilst this makes them vulnerable to morale, you need the extra ability to damage multiple armor options.

It has more scoring options than my list posted in the summary but has less of a midfield presence without the Kanz and KFF. This may leave the Battlewagons hung out to dry if the initial assault falls to pieces but it's pretty decent by Ork standards.

He posted this on Warseer and big walls of text there on why Trukks and Boyz are good. The internet like their boxes it seems and Ork armies like this are certainly outside of the norm.

Anyone else have any thoughts or comments?

I'm not a huge fan of Nob Bikers normally, they're just too damn pricey to make an effective unit that won't get run off with morale.

I like the list, I just might go for a BW carting the Nobs and more Bikes instead of that last unit of Grots. You swap a unit of Grots and get 2 more units of Bikers.

Kirby said...

Nor am I but we should have some diversity in lists, yes :P?

I think dropping the Bikers for another BW and more buggies is viable but obviously changes the dynamic of the list a fair bit which I generally don't like to do unless it's really bad.
