Default Most Ridiculous 500pt army you can devise!

The aim is basically to make the most ridiculous/broken or otherwise insane army you can at 500 points. Standard FoC applies. Creativeness is encouraged, so no, fitting a Land Raider into 500 is not something to be proud of. Non-super-heavy non-flyer Forge World units MAY be used.
I'll Start with Orks:
Big Mek, KFF, 'eavy Armour - 90
10 Grots w/ Runtherd - 40
10 Grots w/ Runtherd - 40
Battlewagon, Deffrolla - 110
Battlewagon, Deffrolla - 110
Battlewagon, Deffrolla - 110
Total:500. 3 AV14 Vehicles. It would be more fun but less cheesy with a Lifta-dropp Wagon, a BW and some Grots and a Mek, but WTH.
Good Luck, fellow not-so-sane people!

Per turn that's...

Four Str7 AP4 shots

Two Str9 AP2 shots


Three Str4 AP6 blasts

Not to mention a potential 12 Str6 AP5 from the Psyker and all the lasfire!

That said it's very hard to cheese up an IG force at this points limit with the FOC restrictions. ^^

IG is Fairly Difficult to cheese up.
Something like this might work:
HQ
Command Squad - 50
Troops
10 Veterans - 70
10 Veterans - 70
Heavy Support
Leman Russ - 150
Manticore - 160
Total: 500
Kinda Lacking in troops, but D3 S10 and 1 S8 Blast should make for a pretty efficient Alpha Strike. It even gets 24 Lasguns!
