Default Big Game with Games workshop Staff member! Help plz :)

Hey Guys!

Firstly Good Waaaaaagh to all of you ;D

second ^^ is this battle I have with a staff member on thursday. Now to win would be Godlike :P because this staff member thinks he's the beesknees if you know what I mean, he's mint guy though

So Obvly I'm playing Orks the list will be something like this...

Gharzgkull Thrakka

Big Mek- SAG

Nobz (8 ) - (counting as troop choice)
3 with powerclaw rest with big choppers
Waaagh banner/bosspole etc

MegaNobz (4)
either Kombi Flamer or rockit (explained later)

Looters (10)

Ork Boyz (20)
'Ard Boyz (before anyone says anything I don't have anymore boyz so this makes up the points)
Nob - powerclaw/bosspole/armour

Ork Boyz (20)
Nob - powerclaw/bosspole/armour

Deffkopters (3)
T-L Rockits

Deff Dread
(with 2 CC weps and riggers and AP)

BattleWagon
(with it all) eg. Kannon and Killkannon

He'll be playing Nids, which is the army I bane. So obvly he made the most of my weaknesses. So do I thrown my Mega nobs with Ghasgkull and take out any Fexes that come my way or thrown them at the swarms as Fexes with just crush them? And I just know he will outflank with some stealers with broadlord, how do I take that?...

So basically.. HOW DO I BEAT NIDS!? ;D

Thanks
ZoDan.!

Nids against Orks. Shouldn't be too bad a game.
What manner of nids does he play? Zilla, Horde, Hybrid?

Either way, my advice is to take 3 Killa Kans and give them Grotzookas. Use them right, and I'll guarantee that they will make their points back.
Max out the Loota squad. Or even take two of them.
Make all your boyz shoota boyz. And give them big shootas.

Use the Battlewagon to transport your Nobs and Boss into battle. Give it a rolla and some bling.
Take Looted Wagons if you want pie-plated.

Even more good shooty is to take Big Gunz. Cheap and very nice to take out anything Nidlike.

Keep the Koptas as they are, but skip the Deff Dread for more shooty bitz.

Big Meks with SAG, I use just for fun. If I play competetive games, I skip it. Just too random.

Skip one klaw from the Nobs. Three I feel is overkill, as you also keep uge choppas. Save some points there. Give them some armour.

To make it short. With Orks vs. Nids, you shoot him to kingdom come.
Always worked for me, and ought to work for you too

Thanks Dude

The real fact is I won't really have time to get those etc bits so what you see is all I have. But your exactly right, and it is an army I'd much prefer. But I was wondering what I could do with what I've got, like for example these weapons you said for the dread, which ones? why? and what would I give my normal boys?

The history behind it is the reason I began collecting Orks is a friend of mine played them and had a completle shooty army. Now being a Tau player at that time I was like "yeh ok bring it" and I had one hell of a fight. it came to draw after draw until I was just down right disgused with the over-poweredness of them and demanded that he player "Real orks" ^^ and after that I dedicated to collecting a real CC ork Monster. (The Looters cuz I still repsect their strength :P)

Thanks again ;D
ZoDan.!
