New Ork player needs army list looked over
« on: September 20, 2002, 10:49:33 PM »
Hi everyone.  I recently decided to start a Speed Freeks army and wrote up a 500 point army list for them.  Yeah, 500 points is kind of hard to do with Speed Freeks, but its not that hard to hide 2 Ork Trukks behind a hill incase I don't get first turn.

So here is my first Ork list:

-HQ-
Warboss - 80
-Choppa
-Slugga
-Kustom Job: Blasta (cause I had 3 extra points left)
-Iron Gob
-'Eavy Armor
--Rides with Trukk Boyz

Painboss - 66
-Dok's Tools
-Cybork Body
-Mega Armor
--Rides with Burna Boyz

-Troops-
8 Trukk Boyz - 175
-Slugga and Choppas
Nob [53]
-Mega Armor
-Bosspole
Wartrukk [50]
-Red Paint Job
-Turbo Boosta
-Armor Plates
-Grot Rigger
-Rokkit Launcha

9 Burna Boyz - 150
-4 Burnas
Wartrukk [45]
-Grot Riggers
-Reinforced Ram
-Armor Plates
-Red Paint Job

-Fast Attack-
Fighta-Bommerz Raid - 30

Total Points: 501

(I haven't read through anything but the rules in the codex as I just bought it today so thats why nothing has a name).
'Da boss iz one a 'dem Speed luverz.  He always wantz da Wartrukk wit' 'da Turbo Boosta, and den drivin' as fast as he can to 'da front lines of 'da enemiez.  'Da Big Mek iz wurkin' on a Chimera 'dat we found in one of 'da last battlez, and he said 'dat he is gonna give it to 'da Skarboyz and 'da Squig-Keeper Nob instead of 'imself!  'Da boss is nutz!

I originally had the Warboss and the Trukk Boyz riding in a Looted Chimera, but since it only goes 12" I thought it wasn't fast enough for the Warboss, so then I had some trouble filling up the rest of the points.  For example, before I didn't even have a Painboss or a Fighta-Bommerz raid.  OK, I guess that would make this my second ever Ork army list.

So how does it look?

     Twenty models on the field, I guess that's alright considering it's a 500 pointer. If you're gonna give anyone Mega Armor it should probably be the Warboss. If that Nob get's hit with a power weapon twice he's gone. I wouldn't suggest using Mega Armor anyways for a list this small. It's just too expensive.
     The Burna Boyz are really nice. They are good for cutting up tanks and providing attacks as a power weapon (if you don't use it as a flamer).
     I'd suggest a Big Mek or a Mekboy with a Kustom Force Field to provide "glancing only" hits on vehicles and providing a 5+ cover save to those within 6" I think.
     Armored top is nice if your opponent has a Whirlwind or some barrage weapon because they score two hits on opened topped vehicles.
     The Fighta-Bomberz raid is up to you, I never used it before. You're troops choices are excellent just remember to tool up your guys with wargear that is gonna do the best damage to your opponent.

Okay, going on your advice and stuff from Roburky I modified my army list:

500 points

Warboss - 88
-'Eavy Armor
-Choppa
-Big Shoota
-Iron Gob
--Rides with Trukk Boyz

-Troops-
8 Trukk Boyz - 190
-Slugga & Choppa
-1 Burna
Nob [61]
-'Eavy Armor
-Power Klaw
-Slugga
-Kustom Job: More Dakka
-Kustom Job: Shootier
-Bosspole
Wartrukk [53]
-Big Shoota
-Red Paint Job
-Grot Riggers
-Turbo Boosta
-Armor Plates

9 Burna Boyz - 169
-3 Burnas
Mekboy [25]
-Super Stikkbombz
-'Eavy Armor
-Choppa
-Slugga
Wartrukk [45]
-Rokkit Launcha
-Red Paint Job
-Grot Riggers
-Armor Plates

1 Warbuggy - 53
-Red Paint Job
-Force Field
-Turbo Boosta
-Spikes and Blades
-Stikkbomb chucka
-Grot Riggers

500 points.
Depending on the number of tanks I may switch the burna from the Trukk Boyz to the Burna Boyz.

The Mekboy and his Burna Boyz are Tank Hunters (as well as good assaulters)

The Boss, 'iz Nob, 'iz Boyz, and 'iz Ride just charge forward 25+d6" towards the enemy and disembark next turn and then charge into assault.

The Warbuggy just charges forward Tank Shocking and trying to get infantry to assault it.

Excellent list. Even the French would say, "I like it!" (Robin Williams)
I still think you're overloading that nob though. I hope you plan on keeping you're Trukk Boyz close to your Burna Boyz otherwise that Bosspole is useless.
Just in case I don't mean any offence. I'm just giving my advice to the best of my ability.  :)

Another new army list:

-HQ-
Warboss Baddoom – 77
-Choppa
-Slugga
-‘Eavy Armor
-Iron Gob
--Rides with Trukk Boyz

-Troops-
9 Trukk Boyz – 133
-Slugga & Choppa
-1 Burna
Wartrukk [48]
-Grot Riggers
-Red Paint Job
-Big Shoota
-Armor Plates

10 Burna Boyz – 148
-Slugga & Choppa
-3 Burnas
-Cybork Body
Wartrukk [40]
-Grot Riggers
-Red Paint Job
-Rokkit Launcha

-Fast Attack-
4 Warbike Outriders – 140

498 points

I just bought Codex: Armageddon and Warbike Outriders look pretty cool since average rolls will get them in assault on turn 1.

Nice nice. Who did you try and give the Cybork Body to?

well, for a warboss with cybork body, do the thing like what that Iron Warriors guy did in WD 273 (with Murchad Kite) that looks like a cybork body AND a warbike thingy!
