Do you not have boyz with close combat weapons or is there another reason why you take shootas instead of sluggas? I'd take those extra CC attacks anyday especially against space wolves. Another thing you'll be having a tough time with is the land raider(s). I suggest dreads if you have them. If not, good luck with those power klaws. Oh and take boss poles for all the nobs, it's worth the few points it costs.

If I had to pick one of those lists, I'd probably take the first one for the following reasons: Weirdboy equals awesome (and he makes the horde more anti-armor with the Zzap psychic power) + most models (bigger WAAAGH!).

Chose shooter boyz casue of the massive amount of shots. So get close shoot kill a few guys then charge and kill the rest.
Boss poles are included in all the units, I just forgot to write them in.
Was extreamly tempted by weridboy, as last time i used one on frist turn zaap and a landraider crusaider up in smoke.

so maybe this. Hopefulyl wont be many jaws of wolf or dark eldar humonculi riles of death.

It's a way to go yes but I really think that extra BS2 shot and a bit longer range won't have the same impact as the extra CC attack. Maybe squishy units like guardsmen or kroot or something alike would dislike the shootas, but generally I think sluggas win. In any case I believe that list is plausible, wishing you luck with the weirdboy

at 600 pts you are unlikely to run into alot of heavy armor like land raiders or other similar tanks (altho some may use it as a huge killing platform). But i still think that 2 groups of sluggas and choppas will go farther than shootas. i play against SM all the time and i can only hop to make some kills with my big shootas. altho the furious charge special rule coupled with sluggas and choppas can very quickly turn a fight with any shooty army. May want to consider taking rokkit launchers to take out those tough units like armor and 2+ armor saves (also works great against HQ units).

choosing sluggas gives you the same amount of shots but at only 12" instead of 18". But why are you holding back with ork boyz? Need to get in there to chase them out of objectives. Then live through their gunfire with numbers and cover saves.
