Cheap and good but where's the 'Eavy Armor? Combining 4+ Armor Save and FNP is a Monster.

Preferably for Shooty Orks; either you got numbers or templates. 5 Lootas aren't enough IMHO. maybe drop them to pay for the essential upgrades that other units need.

To be honest, I think Battlewagons perform best if they're equipped with a Deff Rolla and Tank-Shocking/Ramming everything in its way. Also, you go for Shooty BW, drop the Deff Rolla. And those Shoota Boyz must have a Nob with PK.

Solid but IMO more Boyz.

They need 'Eavy Armor. So, Bolter/Pulse/Shuriken rounds don't tear your Nobz to bitz. And try to put in another PK if you can.

One Deffkopta down will force them to take a Ld Test and with no BP, to re-roll your Ld 7. You might find them running off the boards before you can do any real damage. Either pump more into it or put 1 Deffkopta per FoC.

10 Stormboyz
1 Nob PK BP
Hmmm......looks good.

Overall, too many Shock Troops for yor kind of army. I can't help but feel.....very uneasy seeing this list :-\

Ok, thanks for your input Zenai. I dont Have my codex on me so i cant full point it out, but what im thinking about with your recomendations is to drop the lootas, 2 Deffkoptaz and the buzzsaw, and get rid of the KK upgrade on the BW for just a regular Kannon. That should free up about 240 pts or so. Ill put that 20 boyz squad in the BW, increase the size of the shoota squad and add a nob with PK BP. What would you suggest with the rest of the points for this type of list? Another unit of boyz or maybe a looted wagon so i can still get one of those ordnance templates? Also as for the 'eavy armor, that squad ends up getting pelted with low ap stuff, since low ap is usually high strength to help weed out the squad and deny FNP saves(if the trukk gets destroyed before they get to their intended assaulting targets). I also play marines alot that usually have some power weapons so the cybork is really nice for me. Also could you tell me what makes you uneasy about the list? Is it just too much fast attack and not balanced enough? Thanks again for your help.

Better than getting chucked at with Bolters. The 'Eavy Armor is also suppose to help you out when you're in CC and make them less vulnerable to normal attacks. Also, maybe you can get a Big Mek with Power Klaw and KFF to join your Nobz so it gives a 4+ Cover Save to your Trukk. Put the Battlewagon next to the Trukk and your Storm Boyz can follow from behind in cover while your Warbikes at the other side of the Trukk And use your extra points for more boyz + Nob with PK and BP.

Pretty good, one thing I did notice was your battlewagon had killkannon and deffrolla, I use the same combination and alot of people said to make it shooty or rolly but that might just be them.

Well now I have it with just a regular Kannon. I dont know if I agree with that though. I like the deffrolla also for the fear it brings, and re-rolling difficult terrain. Even though i might not use the deffrolla for tank shocking, ppl know its there and what it can do. I would always take it for either platform i think. I have the second list with a regular Kannon because the way i modeled my BW I used one of the Big gunz on it. That way I can use it for either a shooty BW with Killkannon, or an assaulty one with 20 seats and a regular kannon. Not sure wich way I really want to use it yet. Zenai didnt like the shooty platform, but i think it would be good so i may still try it.
