That`s actually my plan for my Bad Moons. Loads of Shootaboyz, Flash Gitz, and so on. I`m not sure about Lootas, since they don`t really seem to fit a Bad Moon Klan army (though they are black market arms dealers...).

Should work okay, though, being Orks, will be very random...

Lootas.

Current Codex, it's still doable... triple Big Shootas/Rokkits in Shoota Boy squads, Flash Gitz, Tankbustas, rokk 'ard Looted Ordinance-lobbing tanks, etc.

A shooty ork army was always viable, and used to work better under the old speed freeks rules. Now they got even shootier but will have much more difficulty dealing with 2+ saves and anything with armour 14. Zzap Guns were changed and we no longer have access to S9 or S10 ordnance, although if you're lucky with the shokk attack gun you could achieve the same effect.

If shooty is your thing, under the new rules you can build an army that will be very competitive against armies that have a majority of 4+/5+ saves and armour 12 vehicles. I did make a post recently about my first game with the new codex against elder and my shooting was very successful against them.

You can get some rokkits in there for AP3 and we can field a reasonable amount of Meks now for AP2, course the KMB 'Gets Hot' though.

A Shooty Ork army is can be possibly done with the new Ork dex, yes. But since Orks have Bs2, you will need loads and loads of Flash gitz, Shoota boyz, etc. But be aware if you decide to take that one upgrade (Blaster? I think?) since you overheat.

But again, it is doable.

Avoid Flash Gitz. For the price of a Flash Git, you can get a Big Gun with Ammo Runt. Contrast a 33% hit of a S 5, to a 75% hit of a S8 (which granted will drop to 50% acc, but still it's much nicer than what you'd get out of a git)...

Loota Boyz of course are also nice, as well as the Shokk gun or any other pie plate for that manner.

No need to avoid the flashgits if you don;t want to. All ork units have a purpose and some Flashgits really add to the theme of an all shootie ork army.
