Ok; so big game VS new-dar tomorrow.  So far I'm 1:2 against my opponent, and I'd really like to show up his list with a 4th edition codex (like the one he just dropped).  Tactics are pretty easy; the Warbosses and 3 kopta squads outflank, while the green Barons deploy.  Lootas, Kannons, and Grots (for the gun) in the Aegis; with the line split into two sections.  pretty much everything else goes for a Waaagh.  I'd like to have a lot more shootas; but I haven't got to arm swapping more than 30 yet.

Any tips/swaps that are going to save my life?  I'm expecting 10-15 Wraithguard and a Wraith Knight, and god knows how many serpents...

I'm about half way through putting together (well...inventing) the Grot tanks right now; but I'll have pictures up of the hoard tomorrow from deployment.
 
Hey! I know!  Let's focus on building army lists, instead of silly custom titles and command structures, yeah?

From the days of the doctorines.
RIP-Goyder, Koonitz, and Jenkins.  Honour them.

Armies:
ORDER: Elysians 2k5, Armored battlegroup 2k5, Infantry Guard 2k, Dark Angles 4k5, Grey Knights 2k
DISORDER: Chaos 3k, Daemons 2k Dark Eldar 2k5, Nids 2k, Orks 2k5
I'm both proud and ashamed of those numbers...

Looks like a fine list, but (there is always a but) a few things I would recommend you change.

Firstly bring those truck boy squads up to the full 12, a 10 boy squad seems to evaporate too quickly while 12 seems to be the magic number for ork truck boys.

Next, give that big mek a KFF!!! Sure, the cover save is not as good as last edition, but you will find that it still provides that certain "pain in the tactics" to your opponent. The more desperately he wants that BW dead, the higher your probability of rolling those 5+s. 

Next, give the BW at least a reinforce ram and red paint. I prefer the death roller but if you are going for a shooting platform then at least the ram, so you don't get immobilized on the first piece of terrain you try to shortcut through.  I do like the four rockits, that is what I have been using lately and they do seem to do a great job.

Now for the bad news. To get the points for all this, you might have to drop either one of the biker bosses or the looted boom gun wagon. A hard choice to be sure, but I would let one of the bosses sit this one out. Remember; orks are not about the heroes, they are about the mob. You only need one HQ per force org, so one boss on a bike and the KFF mek are all that is required.

Good hunting, can we expect pictures for a battle report? (hint hint hint)

My two teef
"It needs but one foe to breed a war. And even those who have not swords can still die upon them" (Lady Eowyn)
     We orks are not about being the hero; We orks are about being the mob.
