Default Ork Boy Question

Do Ork Boyz have 1 base attack or 2? I could swear it was only 1 but with various circumstances adding to the number of attacks, like charging and weilding multiple weapons. But I charged a unit of Shoota boyz and found that they counterattacked with 2 attacks each.

Base 2 attacks plus any applicable bonuses for wielding two weapons. You can check on page 298 of the BoB.
Cheers,
Aureus.

Base 2 attacks. 3 attacks on the charge. 4 attacks if they are equipped with Slugga and Choppas.
If your going to get into assault i'd definately advise taking the Sluggas and Choppas because then you maximize attacks.

Any other questions?

Harsh, yes, but you always want to charge Ork Boyz if you can (i.e. if you're within 7" at the beginning of the movement phase or if you have Rapid Fire or Heavy Weapons that aren't going to kill them all in your last round of shooting). Otherwise you're toast. It may not sound smart with their large number of attacks, but it's still better than them charging you with their obscene attacks plus Furious Charge.
