Ditto what Hyena said. There are ideal lists, then there are practical, doable lists, corresponding to what models you actually have.

Trying to make a list that won;t require you to make or buy any new units so a detailed inventory list would be great.

I've knocked up a potential list for you, using the available info about what you have.

//HQ

Warboss: Choppa/Powerklaw, Slugga, Bionik Bonce, Eavy Armour, Iron Gob, Cybork Body. 98/121 pts

//Elites

Ard Boyz: 18 Boyz, Sluggas, Choppas, Burna, Nob, 269 pts

//Troops

Grot Mob: 10 grots, Slaver (+Slugga if WB chooses Power Klaw) 40/39 pts

Tankbustas: 5 Tankbustas, 3 rokkits (+Nob w/ Rokkit, Ammo Runt if WB chooses Power Klaw) 98/76 pts



//Fast Attack

Wartrack: Skorcha, Grot Riggers, Armour Plates, Red Paint Job, Turbo Boosta. 53 pts

Trukkboyz: 9 Boyz, Sluggas, Choppas, Burna. Nob: Slugga, Choppa, Iron Gob, 113 pts
Wartrukk: Rokkit, Grot Riggers, Armour Plates, Red Paint Job, Turbo Boosta, Bolt-on Big Shoota. 55 pts


//Heavy Support.

Looted Basilisk 120 pts

Battlewagon: Zzap gun, 2 TL Rokkit Launches, Grot Riggers, Armour Plates, Red Paint Job, Turbo Boosta. 155 pts


TOTAL: 1001 pts


The idea behind it is to make the army have a long reach in terms of mobility and the basilisk's range. The grots are there to fulfill the 2 troops requirement (taking the FOC to be a basic one). The tankbustas as are there to be a dangerous unit, but one the enemy might ignore in favour of the vehicles. They WILL die if shot at, so don't waste them though.

I've tooled up the vehicles for maximum survivability. I might have cut down on the upgrades and included another wartrakk or two, but seeing as you said you only have one 'trakk, the list is the way it is.

If I were playing this army, I would keep the vehicles together and move as one, using the Wartrakk as ablative armour if need be. The Tankbustas would move up a flank or from cover to cover, harassing any vehicles they can, while the Basilisk provides long range cover, targetting those units/vehicles presenting the most threat to the battlewagon and wartrukk.

Hope this helps,

Yad
